Baking a cake = neglecting your child? Lol. I've heard it all now!
No i wouldn't judge. You spend as much as you want, its clear you want to throw your son a great party, not to just show off, hence why you are worried that it's too much.
If you can afford it, spend it. I'd do the same, i love to throw parties and entertain and you're building memories.
It took me a few years to have our little bubba, and i'm going to throw him a party every year. If i can afford $700 or whatever it costs to have what I want, i'll spend it to have a fun party
I haven't read the replies, so this is just my opinion. Yes, I find it ridiculous to spend so much on a child's party. I have been to a few entertainment/animal farm type kids parties and find them awful - the kids don't really 'play' together, the birthday boy/girl is overwhelmed so doesn't spend time with their friends, and I have never had them thank us for a gift.
I much prefer kids parties where they invite a handful of friends, play a few party games, have a cake and some kids food, open presents (I love watching kids open gifts as I always put a lot of thought into them and I like to know they like it/even knew they got it!) and them go home. I don't cater for adults though, and never expect food for myself when going to a child's party.
As for the OP? Go for it, sounds like it will be a blast!
