  • Depends on who is having the party. If it's just a random classmate of DD's, then no, I do not help. If it is for a close friend of DD's or for/being thrown by a close friend of mine, then I will do anything I can to help.

  • It depends on the party and who is hosting. If someone is having a party that has been to my house and has helped me, I would help out if needed. If it is my first time at someone's house, I go as a guest and enjoy myself.

  • That is essential to know the person. As for me, I am willing to help a friend of a friend if I am capable to do it. I'm sure it will be till I get frazzled.

  • What do you mean by helping? Are you talking about helping clean up or help serving food? Or are you talking about planning the party? If so, are these moms asking you for your ideas?

  • At Swasson I would if I could, and yes planning. Or contributing ideas, I just agreed to make some desert for on coming up and maybe sometimes I will help clean. I don't care to clean up after. But I find that I will for very very good friends or my family.
