Hey i was just wondering what people are doing/done for thier childs second birthday? I have my sons on the 6th of feb and were on a budget. All the play places near me have a minimum of 10 and i only have 7 children coming to the party. We cant afford to pay for 3 children that dont exist so i suppose my question is, if you were invited to a party (1hour play) and there was no food would you question it or just get on with it? Thanks for all your answers, help and advice x

I think that people will understand as long as they know in advance what to expect. I think you should plan the party around a time of day that is not usually associated with a meal time. Having the party after lunch time but before dinner time should signal to the guests that they should not plan on a meal. It would be good if you indicated on the invite to come for "play and cake" to give the gursts one more hint that food is not in the plan. As long as you are upfront with your guests they should be fine and you won't have to apologize or discuss your budget. Hope this helps you with your decision!!

If you aren't going to do food... please let people know. Other than that... do whatever your budget allows. We typically just go to a playground, eat, and let the kids go wild. :)

if you are on a budget the just have it in your back yard with a jumping castle and frito pies and hot dogs....but no i have been to birthday parties that had no food and i think it is fine just make sure you either let the parents know so that thay feed their child before they go so that they are not going expecting to have food and then get all upset about it or leave early cause they are hungry
