  • Really not much. I made a cake, had balloons. I have twins we where away from the family across state, so it was just us four. It was nice.

  • Not much. Her bday is in the fall so I just hit yard sales all summer long and stocked up on gifts. I had a bring a dish to pass party so really all I had to pay for food wise was the cake ingredients.

  • We have twin girls that will turn 1 this summer. We have been buying things for their birthday all year. We will have a big party for them in the summer. I bet overall we will spend 400 or 500 on them probably too much but it is spread out over the year and they will only turn one once!

  • MLM are you serious?! That is rediculous for a child's 1st birthday.

    We spent $100 or less - cake, food, relatives came over, balloons...obviously nothing special, but how much will a child remember from their 1st birthday?! We got pics of everyone having fun and the birthday child and their cake. The important stuff. I can't understand people spending high amounts of money on a 1st birthday party.

  • Yeah I am serious! I can spend whatever I please on my daughter. She also has a savings account. Would that piss you off to know how much is in it? haha Haters I swear. She will see the pictures, video and also all of her birthday cards that I saved for her to read when she is older. So yes she will remember it. Anything else?
