My DD turns 2 in a few weeks and originally we weren't going to have a party for her as DH has been made redundant and we were meant to be moving around her birthday. A few people have said some mean things about me being cruel for not having a party for her and that they will organize one for her. This has made me want to have 1 coz she is my little girl I don't want someone else doing it for her! For her first bday we hired a community hall and it was very cheap but once I added in decorations, food, lolly bags etc it was not that cheap at all. And it was so stressful! There is a pub near us that does family Sunday's with a petting zoo and jumping castle, I was thinking about trying to reserve a few tables there and inviting everyone for lunch but I'm unsure if it's weird to have a kids party at a pub and if it would be rude to not pay for people's lunch. I would supply nibbles and cake if the pub allows it. So what do you think? Or any other options? Our house is too small and I don't trust the weather enough to have it in a park.
