Quoting j.Rileys mommy:" I need ideas. Toots' 1st birthday is in April. I live in New England, so its gonna be chilly still. I ... [snip!] ... I planned on getting her one gift and some clothes Is that being cheap? I want a cupcake/princess theme. I expect 20 guest max"
No it isn't being cheap. I go overboard and I will be the first to admit it. The parties aren't remembered by them. They don't care. I think that we tend to have the parties for us rather than them. lol Do what is in your budget and have a great time with it. Either way, you are celebrating a special day. Her First Birthday and your First Mommy Anniversary!
