But as a SP, the cost of the party is bordering in about $700 and I tell myself that's ridiculous and the other parents will think I'm ridiculous! It's on stuff like a jumping castle, an entertainer/clown, and a few platters if food, and tables and chairs for the kids, plus party bags, balloons and cake stuff.

    Im planning months ahead so am paying but by bit so it's not so bad but is it just too much??

    I know the kids will love the JC and clown and while we will do much of the basic food and drinks ourselves I really do think I should order the platters on top for up to 25 kids and adults!
    No your spending what your happy to spend your son will have a great day and so will his friends

    Wow what a condescending and judgemental post! So people aren't allowed to be proud of their efforts and share it with the people they care about/are friends with and if they do it means they are insecure? Sorry to me your post just comes across as bitter to be honest.

    Goodness
    I don't think anyone is asking for reassurance, or that anyone is boasting either

    I've been sitting here thinking about it all and I think I'm mostly motivated by 1. Wanting the party to he a certain success, because 2. I have memories from my childhood of terribly unsuccessful small-scale parties (sorry mum). Lol my poor mum had no idea (or couldn't be bothered). I clearly remember one year finding my 6 year-old brother crying quietly in his room on the morning if his pending birthday party. Mum hadn't organised anything, except a few bowls of fruit (prunes included) on the table. My brother was a quiet kid and said to me 'is there any lollies?' It broke my heart! I jumped in the car and raced down and bought heaps if sweets and organised some music and games at the last minute. He was so relieved I could see it on his face! I'm terrified of throwing a bad party for DS!!!

    Since when is it bad to enjoy praise for something you worked hard on?

    I'm not normally a very clever or creative person, but have always made one of the more extravagant cakes from the Women's Weekly birthday cake book for my wee one. It's taken probably longer than it should because it can sometimes take 3 attempts to even get the cake part cooked right. The decorating takes time and effort and concentration. Hopefully none of my friends think I'm bragging by posting photos of the end product that works out, quite frankly I'm proud of the fact that it was successful in the end in time for her party.
