At what age do you start doing birthday parties?

My daughter just turned 4 so we're not really doing anything big. Gifts, cake, a few friends of ours. When do you start doing actual parties?

  • When your child wants more and has a class of friends to invite.

  • You don't ever have to if you don't want to. We had family members most of the time. Once they got over the age of 10 we stopped that too. Just a small immediate family thing.

  • My son has had a party since he turned 1. The only times he didn't were the year he went to Disney for his birthday and the year I moved to a new town and didn't know anyone with kids.

  • My kids had a party for every birthday. They were about 3 when they really started helping to plan it, though.

  • A family birthday with friends. When in preschool or school it starts to expand.

  • We have family together sometimes. When my daughter started asking to have friends spend the night she got to have a slumber party for her birthdays. I guess we just really haven't been much of a birthday party family.
