Hi all, I'm starting to plan J's bday party and am stuck on who to invite...
J's been asking for months to have a party with his friends. DH and I agreed to throw him a friend party this year as opposed to the large family parties we've thrown each year in the past.
Now here is my dilemma....
Do I invite his entire class (there used to be 12 in the class when I initially decided to throw the friend party, but now there are 16)?
Do I invite only a few in the class (I really don't want to exclude anyone)?
Do I invite his friends from his playgroup/neighbors that don't go to his school?
Do I include his cousins (this would mean more kids and more family)?
My current thoughts: I think I am going to invite the entire class as I bet maybe only 10 will actually come. I think I am going to invite the immediate family (6 cousins) only after the friends leave (party after the party? as this can be waaayy informal). And as far as his playgroup/ non-school friends go... I have no idea. There would be maybe 6-7 kids I could think of that he would want to include...but I feel that is way too many in the event that they all came.
I'm throwing the party at my house as I've already rented some bouncy/ playhouse thing that was on a daily deal site. I want to avoid massive chaos as I plan on having some organization with the kids during the party (playtime, lunch, games, cake).
WWYD? Am I thinking too much into this?
