2.  How many people are you expecting?

3.  Of the attendees, how many are kids?

 

Re: POLL: First birthday party

  • We are debating this now... and need to decide quickly. DS will be one in April. I want to have a gathering for the family at a park (with the same name- how cool is that?!). It would be about 15 people with the cousins being the only kids (about 6 kids).
  • at a hall

    60ish

    10 under age 10, then a handfull of older kids.

    3.  10 or less kids

  • If you are having a party for your LO's first birthday:

    1.  Where is the party going to be located (your house, park district, entertainment facility, zoo, etc) Our house

    2.  How many people are you expecting? 30

    3.  Of the attendees, how many are kids? 4 (b/t the ages of 5-10)

    I am keeping it to just family since he won't remember the party and I do not want him overwhelmed by the commotion.  Our home is on 5 acres, so the older kids will be outside playing, weather permitting.

  • At our house, hopefully with just close family (less than 20). That is MY plan. DH might disagree, but it's too hard for us to draw the line when we go beyond close family. 

    (That might change as we start to feel more pressure and guilt from some of our friends)

  • 1. Not sure where yet.

    2. Between 20 & 30 people- mostly family and some close friends.

    3. 6 kids under age 2

  • 1. A local park. A few balloons, some disposable plates and cups, snacks and a cake. Plus I don't have to clean my house to prep for it. 

    2. About 25-30? Still waiting to hear back if some folks will be able to make it.

    3. Maybe about 10 kids, ages 11 months (3 weeks younger than DD) to 13 years.

     

    The party is mostly for us and our friends, but most of our friends have kids so there will be some.

  • 1.  Where is the party going to be located (your house, park district, entertainment facility, zoo, etc)  One of the nearby parks - either a picnic shelter or one of the indoor facilities. I'm still debating the wisdom of planning an outdoor party in May in NE Ohio.

    2.  How many people are you expecting? Around 30. Primarily family, plus a few close friends

    3.  Of the attendees, how many are kids? 4 kids, maybe 7 depending on who comes in from out of town (not including some of the more immature family members who sometimes act like 4-year-olds), ages 1-4

  • I was all for family only, but my DH wanted to invite all the friends, so:

    1. At our house, catered (sandwich platter, chicken nuggets, etc.)

    2. We invited something like 30 people, including everyone (parents and kids)

    3. We invited two grade schoolers, 4 or 5 toddlers, and several infants...plus a fetus or two. :) These are all kids of our good friends.

    2.  How many people are you expecting? 10 adults, 1 other toddler, one infant (grandparents, greatgrandma, aunt, one couple friend with two kids- if we invited more than that one couple friend, we'd have to invite many other friends with many other kids - it would get out of hand)

    3.  Of the attendees, how many are kids? 2.

  •   Where is the party going to be located (your house, park district, entertainment facility, zoo, etc)  At my parents house. (They are on the beach!) We have cats and SOO many of our friends and family are allergic, so it is easier to use my parents house.

     2.  How many people are you expecting? I haven't made the guest list--but probably between 50-70. My husband has a HUGE family.

    3.  Of the attendees, how many are kids? 15-20? Lots of our friends have kids and we have a lot of young cousins.

  • 1. Our house

    2. Around 10 to 12

    3. 2 to 3

    We live in Colorado and the rest of our family lives in Ohio.  We are just having a few friends over and some other moms and babies from our meetup group. 

  • 1. our house

    2. probably around 60

    3. a bajillion...most of our friends have 2 or 3 kids, and it became impossible to "draw the line" if we invited anyone but family (and our family is really small in general, I really wanted to celebrate with our friends too).  Luckily we have a huge backyard, so we are planning to do an Egg Hunt since it's the day before Easter, and I'm just praying for good weather!!
