Different birthday party ideas

My son just turned 4 and we invited about 20 people ( kids included ) for a cookout. The entire time I was running around cooking and doing this and that and was hardly able to speak to my guests. I didnt get to enjoy it one bit. Now of coarse I know that the party wasnt meant for me but I felt like I was being rude to some of my guests. Are there any ideas of a simple, and easy party for me, yet still fun for my son?

maybe try having a friend or family member run it for you. for my daughters party last month a friend of mine helped get the snacks set up and took my camera and took pictures. it really helped alot because i was able to get around more to talk to the guests. i returned the favor at her little brothers birthday party the next week by running the video camera so her mom and her could do stuff without worrying about trying to hold a camera too.
