My youngest is turning 8 next month, and I'm still undecided on what to do to celebrate. I haven't thrown a family birthday party in quite a while due to lack of space, and I'm not entirely convinced DH's side of the family would bother attending :/ I know only my mom from my side would be able to come, and it's really not much of a party with just 4 people, although we have always celebrated in the past with just the 4 of us.
My oldest turns 11 in September and he's already planning a party for his friends and has told me he has no interest in a family party.
Do you think there's a certain age children reach where a party for friends only is more appropriate, or will you continue to throw one party, or two, til they're grown? Or beyond?
