I wanna have a birthday party for my son in the park (Ive seen a few people have birthdays there but never thought Id think of it too .Looks like thats the cheapest place to have a birthday) and will make a cake and cupcake at home few chips , pizza for the kids and milk/drinks and cut fruit with a 3 planned games and then free play in the park and return gifts for the kids (Im against party favors which I see just a wast of money I plan to get the kids pens, book set) .
My son wants 10 of his friends and I have a few friends 3/4 whom i would like to invite . so that should be about 15 /20kids or so in total of ages 3 years to 6 years .
Is it tacky if I get food just for kids?????
so far ive always had home parties just for family n friends with just finger food for all and cake for all.My condo is small so am worried that so many people means its pure madness .Most of the party places ask for $185 up for just 10 kids.and my son has been attending birthday parties .In all of them the parents were also fed- pizza hotdogs, nuggets etc etc.
Just need to keep my kid happy by having a birthday that he wants although i dont agree in spending too much . spending $200 up for a birthday !!!! Also I have more than 1 kid so doing this for all of them will be quite expensive in 1 year.
what do you say?should I just spend the money like other parents to make kid happy?? Should I just downsize it to freinds and family and just 2/3 of his good friends from school? I just feel pressure to invite the kids who invited my son for their birthday too.
what have you moms done.
