I just had a birthday party for my DS this past weekend. With the help of his teacher, he passed out invitations to every single member of his class the last week of school, which was a month ago (no option for Evite because the school does not share parents email addresses). Out of 16 classmates, only 3 attended. I expected a low turnout because families have vacations, other commitments, etc. But what I did not expect was the complete lack of responses in general. The only people that RSVPed were the attendees. No one else even responded that they were not coming. I just thought it was strange because I always make sure we respond to every party invitation whether we are coming or not. I am curious about other's experiences when it comes to birthday parties...has this ever happened to you? Any ideas on how to handle this in the future?
