To not to want to buy cheap tat for party bags when DD is only 2?!

(51 Posts)

DD is 2 next week and having 3 friends over for play and pass the parcel. Will do some cupcakes etc. Wasn't going to do party bags as felt they were too young for most of the stuff in them and we're a bit strapped for cash after Christmas, but went to another child's party yesterday (same age) and we had 'all singing all dancing ones', with sweets and toys (all too old for her). Have looked on Amazon and seen you can bulk buy a lot of these things, but they still add up and ultimately they are fairly cheap and inappropriate age wise. But ashamed to say that I don't know one of the Mums that well (who's party we recently went to) and am a bit worried about what she will think if I don't so something!

It's up to you, you aren't BU at all. My friend just gave each child a cupcake sh'd made with their initial on the top in silver balls- the mum's all commented how great and different it was and the last one followed the trend with gingerbreads they'd decorated.
