  • I would do a birthday party....but Im the kind of person who is big on birthdays. If you invite your family out to dinner in a formal invitation i think it would be expected or almost like your offering to pay for everyone. If you do it in a casual way like "lets all get together for dinner for ______s birthday" then i would think i would be paying my way. Taking everyone out to dinner and paying could be more expensive then a house party cause you could get most of the things at the dollar store for a party.
    A first birthday is an important one to me although they dont remember it. Its something you need to discuss with your hubby or significant other. Hope I helped a little bit!
