    If I was your SIL I would be quite offended. It's your nephews 1st birthday, surely you knew it was coming up and expecting an invite so 2 weeks seems quite sufficient.

    My best friend didn't turn up to my DS first birthday - she text me with some lame excuse that morning. I was so upset and offended that she couldn't make the effort for my DS - he only has one first birthday!

    If I were you I would pack a picnic and go. Not everyone likes everyone else's friends - but this isn't about you or your SIL or her friends. It's about your nephew and celebrating his birthday.

    I think that some of these posts are way harsh. Come on, the point's been made repeatedly - OP asked for advice, tried to provide more context to her family dynamics and acknowledged the multitude of criticism very graciously IMO.

    Why are they not providing food for the party?

    Is it a bring your own picnic food type situation or will no one eat?

    I find the no food thing a bit strange.
