  • Not counting the gift we bought him about $100 but only because our home right now is too small for a party. When we own a bigger place we'll probably spend about $30.

  • Besides gifts probably $75, never again. Her 2nd birthday we held in our backyard and we just had cupcakes and some snacks. Now gifts is another story, I will not say what I spent.

  • Mine is coming and I will probably spend about $150 for food and decorations. It's at a park.

  • just got him some new clothes....he's 1....he's not interested in a party, nor does he care. It was friends and family and we all had dinner while he played with some new toys. he loved it and it was all of 40 bux!

  • Not much. Just granpa and grandma and me. We bought a few gifts and Grandma made a cake. Her Daddy was in VietNam and coulfdn't be there. But he sent her a cute "flight suit" with her name and Snoopy embroidered on it. :-)
    Birthday parties don't have to cost much. The one year old baby won't know, won't be impressed. LOL. And the party is for the baby ....not for you .

  • pretty much nothin!! whats the point, its not like she remembers...why not save it up for when shes older and can actually enjoy it. one of my friends had a huuuuge bday party for her 1 yr old, like 75 ppl showed up..i think it was just retarded!
