would you, or have you paid someone else to plan your child's B-Day party?

What age and about what have you spent? Was it worth it?
I am starting a party planning business and am curious for your response.

  • Hi, it does sound like lots of fun, but especially these days, no one is spending money on "can do without" expenses. I have always planned our parties. Unless money was not an object, then I guess I would pay someone to help out, but not my kids party..that is personal to me. Perhaps you may want to postpone your endevour for a bit and look at other business that are making money during recession periods. That is businesses in wellness and network marketing. I have been doing MonaVie for 2 years now with my husband and it has been lots of fun as well and the money has been great. This is part time to. If you think this might be something you would consider, call me.

  • No, I haven't and wouldn't. Kids birthday parties are getting ridiculous, although with the present economy people have really seemed to tone it down a lot. We only do cake and ice cream parties for our kids. That doesn't mean that your business idea won't work. Surely it depends on where you live and how much disposable income people there have. Good luck!!
