I'm planning a party for my sons 6th birthday party. We've never had a big party before, usually just family. I was planning to invite his class. I found a venue that I love, it's a farm. The kids all go on a hay ride, meet and pet all the animals. Then play games. The problem is, it's about a 40 minute drive. Keep in mind, i live in a rural area, the closest Walmart is a 30 minute drive! Ha! There are very few venues that are closer, one has a pool and I'd rather not, another is an elementary school, then there is a run down community center. The others would be about $100 less, but then I'd have to supply entertainment. The farm is $200 and I don't have to do anything, plus it's slightly educational. Would you drive your kid to a classmates party that was 40 minutes away, but at a really cool place?? I plan on stressing that we will not be doing gifts. My son also shares a bday with another boy in class. I don't want other moms to feel like I'm trying to compete for the best bday party. Ugh. This party stuff stinks! Lol!
