I had such fun appearing on San Antonio Living. It was particularly a thrill for me because I got to take calls from people who have run into conundrums planning their kids’ parties. It was great to hear from you and discuss what’s on your minds.
One particular question came up on a phone call that asked about inviting the same kids to your child’s party each year, even if they are no longer close friends. Is there an obligation to keep inviting these guests?
Given it is important to know your numbers and keep them within reason for both the budget and time allotments you have, it is certainly not necessary to reach out to guests from previous parties if they are no longer close to your child. As she grows up, friends will come in and out of her life, and she will also come in and out of her friends’ lives. As a result, limit your guest list to those children who are close to your child and don’t worry about not inviting guests who are no longer close to your child.
Good Luck Planning!
