Birthday party question, do you think its 'too much'?

Ok my DD's 2nd birthday is at the end of May, and we've decided to do a Barn Yard Bash (Farm theme) for her party, because she LOVES Old MacDonald. I figure I'll do all the normal stuff, decorations, food, etc. but I have the opportunity to have two ladies come do pony rides, 2 hours for $100. Its a great deal, and there will probably be about 12 kids or so, my DD is the youngest, up to age 12, and I was thinking this would be something they could ALL enjoy. Last year I went SO overboard with her party, and I don't want to do that again this year. So, do you think it is too much, or should I go for it?! :-)

  • Op here: YES I would reconsider! I am STILL being made fun of for how much work/time/money/energy I put into the party last year.. LOL! My thought is honestly that if they have the pony rides, at least there will be something specific for the kids to do rather than just games.

  • Who cares what other people think. Some people like to go overboard and it makes for a fun party. I think if you are having a variety of ages there then all the kids will have fun but I dont think it will matter at all to your 2 yr old. If you can afford it and you dont mind the mess and hassle then why not? It is not neccessary but it sounds fun :)

  • i think it's much for a 2yr old. i'm planning my 3yr old party and i'm not even going that far. who's to say your 2yr old won't be scared of the pony?
