We had a big party prepared. Cake for 40 people was ordered and bought. Was going to have it at the local park, and have a BBQ. BUT DS1 came down with Hand Foot and Mouth Disease the day before his party. We couldn't cancel the cake order, so we had a cake that went to waste.
We ended up trying again on his 2nd birthday.

My DS's birthday is in August and normally guaranteed to be a crappy day weather wise! Our house doesn't have much space to cater for that unfortunately. I'm stumped as to what we should do! Thanks for all the ideas. Will have to have a chat with the hubby

I'd say we had a medium celebration for my DS's 1st birthday. It was about 20 people for morning tea at our local tavern (that has an indoor playground). We just told people to go up and order whatever they wanted (there was a selection of cakes and slices, tea and coffee or cold drinks) and we just paid for it afterwards. I think the whole thing cost us about $150.
With DD we had a small thing for my family and my parents, and a small thing for DH's family at his parents.
