So I need some advice on what you ladies would do. My son will be 5 July 25th and my daughter will be 1 on June 14th. I have decided to have their party together because its just to close to have 2 seperate parties and for people to come to both. My son wants to invite his friends from preschool but I was going to do invites with one pic of DS and one of dd and then the party info. So my question is should I just simple invites for just my son to give to his friends or give the regular invite with both? I don't want people to feel obligated to bring my dd somthing even tho they all know her. Wwyd? Thanks ladies.

I would probably do seperate invites for your son, then on the bottom make a note that it is a joint birthday and don't feel obligated to bring anything for the little sister.

Is there a way for you to just have a friends party.

My aunt normally has a joint party for her kids and they are different ages. But its mainly family that comes.

Well last year his birthday party was a mess. Almost no one but grandparents and great grandparents came. He only had one friend there and I felt so bad for him. Everyone who said they were coming never showed up. He was upset and so was I. So I don't want that to happen again. Plus it's would just be to much right now to do a seperate party.

That's what I was thinking.

I would just find a cute way to say 'the party is for a girl and boy, but only bring a gift for the child you know' type saying

I understand. Yes it sucks when people don't show. I have to remember the ones that showed are the ones that care and take time to come.

That's how I look at it to. It just hurt for him.
