I'm thinking about DS birthday super early because I'm worried I may not have much time to dedicate to it when the time comes (baby will be 6 months old and we will likely be returning to our RE for IF treatments).
I'm wondering how much you would reasonably spend on a child's birthday party?
There's an indoor play house in our area. Think of it like Little Gym or Gymboree but they also have healthy natural food and TONS of toys. We could rent out the whole place for $200 for 2 hours. We would probably have around 10-12 kids at the party. They also charge $12/child which includes food, drink, and balloons. Food includes each kids choice of grilled cheese, turkey roll up, pb&j, or quesadilla plus sides and a drink per kid. Food for the adults would be about $65 for paninis and chips with dip, fruits, and veggies. They have vegetarian options too (some of our friends are veggies). I don't know if that includes any decorations. That adds up to about $400. I can't imagine spending that much on a 4 year olds birthday party! But I'm kind of cheap so who knows... It would be awesome not to have to do any cooking, prep, or clean up though.
