My DD loves going to our local playcentre (hype), it has a huge play area and jumping castles and so on.
They do birthday parties and I would have to buy their food platters but we can bring our own cake.
Thing is people will still have to pay to come in - $7 for an under 3 kids and $1 per adult. I couldn't afford to pay for them myself.
Do you think this is too much to ask? I was thinking I could tell people not to bring a present instead. then would DD be dissapointed at lack of gifts?
I am going to be due for baby number very close to DD1s birthday (9th May) so will be having it about a fortnight early but will still be heavily preganant so thats why I am looking at the easiest option possible.
Any thoughts would be great. I know an at home party is an 'easy' option but even with family help cleanup and organise it can still be time consuming and I don't know if I have the energy for it all.
