    You're just rainbows and lollipops, aren't you? Do you ever have anything nice to say, or are forums just where you come to be a mean grump?

    I am really confused as to why you're being so narky. In your OP you said you were afraid that you were spending too much money on your child's party. If you were confident in what you were doing then you wouldnt have made this post. I dont think you can then be cranky if someone says if XYZ criteria is met then someone is spending too much money.

    This is the internet. If you were only looking for people to make you feel better, independent of the facts of the case, then you should have specified this. If you post a 'question' like this on an open forum then be man enough to accept the differing responses you get.

    What's wrong in being proud of what you've accomplished? Don't most people like compliments? What's wrong in someone sacrificing personal time to do something for a loved one?

    How is it revolting? I think people who work hard should be praised. I've got no issues if ppl make everything or order everything... Each does what they can do best.

    I'm quite puzzles by your animosity.

    I don't think anybody can tell others when they can or can't have a party.

    I work in a really disadvantaged area and I wish the kids would have a party sometime.

    Wait I wasn't being narky. I'm fine, I was wondering if around$700 was too much to spend on a party, not 'do I earn enough to throw a $700 party' iykwim. Never mind, all good. I was just wanting to get an idea of what others spend really.

    The Op's question and the thread title is "would you judge?".

    Of course the thread is going to be full of people explaining why or why not they would be judgemental!!!!

    Are people not supposed to answer honestly now, even if the OP has asked for opinions?

    Honestly I don't judge others at all for what they do/do not spend.

    I must admit I felt a bit insecure when I couldn't afford a jumping castle for Ds's first birthday. We had it at my inlaws and they host all the grand kids parties and my DHs brothers and sisters all splashed out on a jumping castle.

    I fey a bit cheap iykwim... I judge myself more harshly than I judge others.

    This made me remember DD1's first birthday cake. I made a teddy bear cake and it wasn't until we were all gathered around singing happy birthday that I realised I forgot to put arms on it
    (Clearly not a 20 hr job )

    I think it's ok to say, yes, I might judge.. But to assume and judge people for throwing a party simply because they want to impress others? Sorry but that's a bit far fetched IMO!
