We invited 26 people to my dd 4 birthday party. We had it at Old Mcdonalds Farm so it was $208 for us to pay for everyone to get in to celebrate with us. We supplied food, drinks and a day of fun for their little ones for free. Nobody, and I mean nobody, except me & dh bought her a gift. I invited 2 different people who I knew wouldn't be able to get her anything so that's not a biggie. I don't want to sound greedy or anything but I feel like they just used us to get a free trip and day of fun for their kids. I feel like they could have at least told me before hand they couldn't/wouldn't be bringing anything. Needless to say none of them will invited to anything we do from now on.
