i agree with ann that going to the park is a great idea for a party,the kids will have something to do, but most parks(if you use the awning,require a small deposit). for my daughters 3rd bday last year we had it at home,ordered one of those big superbowl sized pizzas from a local pizza place,and had a jumper and a pinata for the kids.......this can add up.......depending on how many people you invite this could work-jumpers run around $60 usually for the whole day! but for my yuongests 1st bday, we were a little more strapped for cash........i made tuna,ham n cheese, and pb and j sandwhiches and cut them in 4's served them on a platter, and everone thought i bought them. put out some chips, potato salad, and your in business! you know walmart has super cheap cakes for about $25,and theyre a half sheet!!!!

A friend of mine had suggested to go to Chucky Cheese with the kids for their birthday. I told her it was going to be a nice day out and we did a pot luck at the park, each of us brought a cake for each of the girls and they had a blast. They got to play and be loud and we saved money.

For my son's 2nd birthday, we did a super low key (budget friendly-under $50) park birthday with our close family and friends. We took snacks and drinks and cake of course. I personally feel that they are too young to remember anything fancy, so we wanted small and easy. It was exactly that. We were there for 2 hours(maybe), and we played around, ate, had cake and it was done. So easy. I plan on doing this again for his 3rd birthday.
