No worries. On second though it is easy to spend money. I did a sausage and bread 1st birthday for my boy and with salads, nibbles, cake (I can't bake!), decorations I'm sure it would have been around $400. $400 for a tight **** birthday. So $700 for jumping castle and clown perhaps you are a better shopper than me.

Some parents might spend $13 a week on macca's drive through for their kids. Some might spend $700 once a year on a great birthday party. Horses for courses.

Would I judge a person for throwing a party like we had then having the phone and power cut off from not paying the bill? Probably, but I'd have to know them well enough to know that, and I don't know her school friends well enough to know if the party they are having is too expensive for them or not.

OP, nope, I wouldn't judge. Are you going to look back in 20 years and regret going all out to celebrate and make wonderful memories for your child? Hell no! So go for it, whether its a $1000 play centre party or a $300 backyard BBQ or a maccas party with ice cream cake- do what will make your family happy

No I wouldn't judge, it might not be what I would do for my kids but good on those that have different ideas, that's what makes our kids lives so much fun.
For years we've had my sons parties in the park with a supplied BBQ and I reckon food and drinks/supplies would cost us $500, it's amazing how quick it can add up.
Truly as long as the kids are having fun, the parents as comfortable as can be then go for it. I have been to parties that have left me thinking I've dudded my kids out of some good parties but that's my own issue not the party throwers.
Oh and I buy the cakes, I think I'm missing the baking gene!
