    Default Do you RSVP for a kids bday party???????

    My boys turn 7 today.

    They are having a party on Sunday. Well they are SUPPOSED to be having a party on Sunday.

    I've been PLANNING for a party on Sunday.

    I've BOUGHT stuff (party bags included) for a party on Sunday...


    They invited 16 children between them.


    I've heard back from 4.


    Just blo0dy rude if you ask me.......

    So... do you RSVP for a child's birthday party, even if you are not coming, or do you just assume that the host will assume that if they don't hear from you, you're not attending?.... Or do you expect the host to ring around and double check numbers?

    I'm quite disgusted by the poor response......

    I always reply. It's common courtesy. Also always say thank you for the invite, regardless if they can make it or not.

    Hope your boys have a fantastic day anyway and Happy birthday to them.

    I think it is rude also. I guess some may call you tomorrow.

    For any parent who brings a child unannounced I would make a point of saying you weren't sure they were coming.

    It just annoys me immensely! I had to decide whether to buy party bag stuff for 5 children or party bag stuff for 20, food for 5 or food for 20....

    It's cost a fortune both financially and in time... and I just think it's so rude not to let someone know either way!

    Well... at least 4 are coming definitely.... and with my 5 that's 9 kids...

    I'm upset that other parents can be so slack though.... It's not like I gave 3 days notice, I handed out invitations over a week ago.

    Of course! I usually RSVP within a day or two of receiving invite, so I don't forget. It is just rude not to RSVP for any kind of party

    Yep, I always call. We have hosted a few parties on not heard from some parents and they have still come to the party. I think it's really rude not to RSVP, esp if there's a mobile number on the invite, it's so easy to send a text.
