View Full Version : First birthday party- how much did you spend?
How much did you spend or will you spend on your bubs 1st birthday party? What did you do OR what are you planning to do?
i spent $300 on my daughters 1st birthday with food balloons games ect
my friend spent over $1000 on her daughters 1st birthday she had a jumping carstle a min farm there everything.
probably more for his 2nd birthday which is coming up as I want to get a mini farm in...but we will see what happens
We spent $150 on food about $300 on presents and $50 for the cake it was a pooh bear ice cream cake.so about $500 altogether the kids were a bit young for games so mayby next year.
Still debating whether to throw a party or not (she won't remember it down the track anyway!)...Her birthday was last friday though so we better get moving if we do have one!
We did have a couple of small celebrations with family (one with my family and a BBQ lunch with DH's family) but not too much spent at this stage.
I'm sure there'll be plenty of birthdays down the track where we need to spend a fortune so not sure if we should this early in the piece.:)
Jesse's 1st birthday was held at our home with clowns and their performing dogs - it was a scream...the kids loved it!
With present, food, entertainment, decorations etc it would have cost us around the $600 mark...not sure, it seems like so long ago!
For Lukey's 1st birthday we hired a farm - we all went there and the kids sat on hay bales at a lower table to eat and then went around and fed the animals and went on a hay ride. The 'barn' we had it in was absolutely beautiful (they mostly use it for weddings) the open fire was going, there were baby animals in a pen for the kids to play with and they had a great time. We brought all of the food with us and they had a kitchen where we heated everything up. I then painted little bread & butter plates with an American style barn on it and "a day on the farm...Lucas' 1st Birthday" as a memento for every child to take home with them.
All up Lucas' birthday would have been around $800, again including decorations, food, hire of the farm etc.
I love thinking up bigger and better ways to celebrate birthday parties!!:D
DD's party is on Sunday & not including her presents I have spent almost $300 so far.
It's not going to be anything too fancy either so I hate to think what it's going to cost for future parties where she will be asking for jumping castles & all the rest of it.:eek:
we only spent $100 and that was to feed about 60 people lunch!:)
We spent around $250. Thats including BBQ lunch for 65 people, invites, decorations, cake...pretty much everything. And it was a wonderful party!
