I have no idea where to have it, been lucky the last 4 years with no rain but you never know in autumn. Whats the going attendance rate for school friends? Im worried if I dont invite quite a few that people wont come then end up with no one there.
    please help.
    I have no idea, but DD started kinder a couple of weeks ago and has been invited to a birthday party for one of the kinder kids....as have the other 26 kids in the class .

    It is at a party place where it usually costs between $150 - $200 for 10 kids (depending on which party package you choose) so I just cannot even imagine the budget for this party. It is on the long weekend so perhaps the parents are hoping heaps of kids wont be able to make it.

    See I hate the thought of other kids missing out, even more so because they are all friends. I dont want to upset the other kids because they didnt get an invite. I would love to just do a park party but Im so worried thar it will rain. ..

    Just wanted to say, that today my son who is in prep was very upset at drop off as one of the kids was handing out birthday invites and invited everybody in the class except for him. I was so angry/upset for my child! I can understand not inviting everyone but to invite the whole class except one is very cruel and a low act.

    Well Hello mumtoseb :P

    But yes, I know Because I have been talking to DS about organising it, when we got to school he was so excited to talk about it. I had to explain to him not to say anything because Im not sure what we are doing and IF we dont invite everyone in his class they will be very upset if they dont get an invite.
    Im really leaning towards inviting them all and just hoping that it doesnt rain so I can just do something easy at a park, and no one will get left out.

    Default Birthday party with school friends question

    DS had his first party last year when he turned 6. It was at a playcentre. He wanted to invite some family friends and 2 close mates from kindy. He was insistent about this so I told him he could therefore only choose 6 friends from prep to invite. He did it easily which told me that they were his close circle. I posted the invitations to avoid the whole giving them out at school thing.

    It worked out fine. There's no way we could have afforded the whole class and in the end he only had close friends there and they had a ball.
