2nd birthday party
Posted 16 May 2011 - 04:25 PM
Is it too young to invite her friends from daycare? She's there 3 days a week and has some great little friends there, aged from 1-4, but I've never met the parents and wonder if they'd think it weird if I invited their kids (and them of course) to Zoe's party.

Bee- she's having a party at home, we'll probably borrow a jumping castle off family and I've ordered a pull-string pinata.

For us I decided not to have a party simply because I knew we would be having one later in the year for his brother, so in my thinking I was going to do each child every 2nd year.

This year I don't expect we will be doing very much for his 3rd given I would of just given birth, giving birth or overdue. If I give birth before 40weeks we might do a family (and very close friends) affair again at a local park but not with a theme or anything just BBQ and cake again.

We invited family, friends and MG to her 1st, was too many people by far so just family (35 people!) to her 2nd. Then at the last minute I felt bad because there'd be no little kids there (next oldest family member is 17) so invited a lady I work with and her 2 kids.
Both times we just had a BBQ, no theme, but I had snacks, sweets, cake and some decorations. As we live at least over an hour from all family members it was important to have one, we like to all get together.
For her 3rd we'll be at a placentre as we'll be moving shortly after and I don't want anyone seeing my house pre-uplift. It's going to be just MG and a couple of daycare friends, as it's our last one before moving away I really want her to have one that's just her little friends.

There were about 13 children all up, most were from our mothers group and all around 2-3. It was an elmo themed party. I made an elmo cake and most of the nibblies. There weren't any structured games I just had out lots of toys and bikes for the kids to play with. I also had little lolly bags fo all the kids (sultanas, small chocolate, crayons, stuffed elmo etc. Not really lollies) and everything was red or yellow. Annabelle was actually in a bad mood for most of the party as she'd fallen asleep in the car on the way to pick up her friend and so was grumpy but she started cheering up yoward the end. All the other kids seemed to have fun.
Ive started planning for her third birthday. It will be a family gathering with a few close friends but that still equates to around 30 adults and 10 children . She wants a handbag cake this time so I'll loosly theme the party around that. But as for another kids party, she probably wont be having another one until after she starts school.
As for inviting the kids from daycare, I would. The kids will get to play and you might just make some more mummy friends .
