Ditto. On principle, and due to budget constraints.

I never wanted my kids to think that it was reasonable to spend a thousand dollars on a party... and I certainly never had a grand available to do it with.

I absolutely lifted other people's party ideas --from friends, and books. And, I have the great pleasure of having NEVER had a child puke, or leave a party crying from too much excitement.

Nope.

Going all out doesn't necessarily mean spending tons of money.

no they are both born in september and we usually have a cookout and i spend about 25 on each kid's gifts. we don't have a whole lot of money. i try to make Christmas nice for them though sometimes it is sometimes it isn't. it just depends on money flow.

Yes I always did for all 5 of them all of their childhood. Each year months ahead of time I would ask them whatever theme THEY wanted (sometimes they even made up their own ) and I would decorate the house and set an atmosphere and sometimes I made costumes for everyone and made up themed games to match with themed prizes and party favors. I also did whatever cake they wanted to match too novelty and sculpture type ones sometimes as well. I always wanted their birthdays to feel like a kids fantasy dream land come true and I had lots of my friends tell me their own kids looked more forward to MY kids parties more than their own each year bc everyone had so much fun. lol 

Now its more of a family gathering bc our kids are all almost all young adults now.

I agree I did all the work myself for months ahead of time and was very resourceful and creative to save money.

 No, I'm a simple down to earth mommy. I made my son's 4th birthday cake (monster trucks) and made hot dogs and brown sugar baked beans. We opened gifts, and sang happy birthday. Very layed backed with our close family and friends at my house. I have never copied another mommy's idea. I'm very simple!
