Our dd's 3rd birthday is less than 2 months away and I have no plan/guest list at all. Last year we had just moved back home so we had a huge family blowout with distant cousins and neighbors' kids.
This year I'm thinking low key is the way to go - but our dd has zero little friends to invite I'm feeling like I failed her She's not in daycare or anything like that, and we don't know our new neighbors ... So what kind of celebration could I put together at this point? I don't think we have time to meet people to invite to a kid-centered party. I'm thinking maybe just have family (grandparents, 4 aunts/uncles, and about 4 older cousins) over for cake and to sing her happy birthday after her dad and I take her to the zoo/aquarium early that day? Is this "normal" for a three year old? The world of Pinterest is just getting me down - all those parties are about huge decor and favors for lots of little ones and that just won't be the case for us. What's "normal" to you guys?
Re: Low key 3rd birthday
We've done his party at the bowling alley twice. A pizza arcade place once. At our in laws house a couple times. I refuse to spend $500 on a party and a lot of these other places charge a ton per kid.
