    I generally prefer morning things but we'd still be happy to go to one in the afternoon, id just plan around it.

    An afternoon party could be a lovely change.

    Default Do you prefer am or pm kids birthday parties?

    With a 1 year old and a 3 year old I definitely prefer mornings.

    We would of course still go to an afternoon party, but I'd probably really dread an evening event.

    You know me and my mornings lol I'd prefer an afternoon party.
    ETA - I've had two 11-1 parties (daycare kids) and one 1-3 parties (school kids). Everyone came to the later party. But that could be daycare kids verse school kids.

    Since my DS will be turning 5, here's hoping a lovely, shady afternoon at the park will be fine :-)

    My ds is turning one so coincides with nap time i guess
    And I just figure if they really are your friend they will come anyway.

    For my 4 year old daughter, any time would suit me, but for my 2 year old, I would prefer mornings as he usually sleeps from 1pm.

    Afternoon. My DS is almost 3 and has his nap in the morning, just before lunch.

    DD is 2.5 and we would come regardless of the time. I would probably prefer morning though as she is more likely to be cheerful and not tired then!

    My two are 4 and 2 and i prefer a morning party, just because my kids are easier to handle and in a better mood then (usually). I would still go to to one in the afternoon but i'd probably be a bit more stressed about it (my 2 year old that is, my 4 year old would be fine).
