My son's birthday is Friday; his party is on Sunday. We go through this every year. People do not RSVP anymore. This year we had THREE responses by the RSVP date out of 18. One mom called yesterday, a day AFTER the RSVP date, and informed me she'd let me know by Friday, since her other children play soccer & she doesn't know if they have games yet. IMO that is rude! I need to make a final head count for the gymnastics facility, bake cupcakes, make goody bags, etc. As of Sunday night (the RSVP date) I thought I might have to cancel the party & forfeit my $100 deposit, since I am obligated to pay for 12 kids for the base price of $285. Monday (yesterday) the responses FINALLY started coming in, and now we're up to 10 kids, so I'll go ahead as planned. Does anyone else find this to be an issue?
On the other side, we have thank you notes. Or, rather, we DON'T seem to have any! We've been to about 4 parties this school year and haven't received ONE thank you note. Anyone else experiencing the same? Can anyone shed some light on WHY?
