How big was your baby's first birthday party?

Would you have changed anything?

My girl's first b-day is growing in attendees by the day (40 as of today) - eeeeek! I would have had a more limited guest list!

  • Both of mine had family and close friends. 7-8 people besides my husband and me (and big brother, in my daughter's case).

  • All of my kids had only immediate family and grandparents for the first birthday party. I thought the intimate gathering was perfect and not too stressful for me or my little ones.

  • ugh I don't even want to think about dd's first bday. My MIL wants to make huge spectacles out of EVERYTHING she does. Baby shower with 40 people I don't know? Yup! Just because they are her friends doesn't mean I have to include them in everything! lol. So I think I'm just going to tell her to butt out and get over it :)
