  • Id do it before. My LOs bday is a on a Friday & were having one the weekend before & the weekend after- Too many family members to have it together.

  • Whichever works out better for you - either way, you're celebrating the child

  • Before, but really it's whatever works best for you and your guests!

  • I'd do either. My daughter's birthday was on the 14th of June and we had her party on the 19th because it was on a weekend and my FIL came out the weekend prior.

  • You can't go wrong before or after, try to watch the weather, and or if it is before or after most people get paid. That's what I do. My kids b-day are really close to Thanksgiving and Christmas, so I do it right after Halloween and call it a "costume Party and the 1st weekend in December- this way they get presents and not excuses about "the holidays are coming up- i couldn't buy a gift..."
