Each year when we aproach one of the boys birthdays I have the same dilema….do I serve lunch for everyone or do I just do cake and ice cream. I usually end up doing lunch and cake and ice cream. Next month is my oldests birthday and I am sure we will do lunch plus dessert. I am curious to know what you all do? Our parties usually consist of family and friends if that makes a difference in your answer to the poll.
We do lunch and cake & ice cream. However, I must say that we live 3-4 hours away from our family. To have them drive to a party and not feed them a meal seems like a lot for me to ask of them. That is the reason behind my lunch and cake. If we lived closer to family, I might consider doing just cake and ice cream.
