    That's gorgeous!
    In the final 6 months before ds finally outgrew his allergies ( by then all he got was itchy hives reaction so nothing too serious) I got sick of him missing out on bday cake @ kindy so used to let him join in and have a tiny piece but then we'd go home and take phenergan before the hives showed up.

    Interestingly enough , DD got a birthday invitation today for an indoor play centre... No mention of presents = I assume that a present is expected. And they wrote to bring $$ for the entry fee! I don't know how I feel about that. A park with byo food doesn't bother me. But I feel a bit iffy about having it at a play centre where I have to buy a present, pay to get in and then pay for greasy unhealthy food as well. I'm assuming they won't be providing food if we are paying the entry fee!

    DD1 is very kind hearted. I know lots of kids have allergies and it's something they deal with daily, I still feel sad if they miss out on stuff like birthday cakes. Poor little kidlets

    My dh n I got invited to a byo birthday party for a childhood friend's son that my dh was friendly with but not really close as they kinda reconnected when we got invited to his wedding. It was his ds first birthday at a park at lunch time, although the invite said nibble provided there was none. I don't mind offering to bring food thou I find it rude when it's expected and I hardly know the parents/ child.

    There is nothing on the invite to say nibbles provided, and I would expect the parents aren't supplying anything except birthday cake.

    I would be much more keen to attend even if it were everyone bring a plate to share. Because it's BYO food and drinks I kind of feel its pretty selfish for someone to say yeah, you're invited, but you have to give my child a gift but im not even going to supply nibbles, you need to bring your own IYKWIM?

    I rsvp'd and said I was unable to attend.

    I havent read through the entire thread but op how exactly was the invitation worded because to be byo own lunch and drinks is very different to please bring along a plate to share.

    Id be more then happy to bring along a plate to share and we do that often withnour close friends and family but packing your own lunch to eat at a party is a bit odd to me and I do agree if you cant adford to cater a party in same shape or form then don't have one.

    Then way I envision it is each child has packed there own lunch and drinks and sit and eat it not everyone bringing along something to share???

    ETA: just read through the thread lol and my question was answered! Ignore above!
