I have those horrible pre party nerves that nobody will turn up to my DDs party tomorrow. She's only turning 3, but is birthday party obsessed and has spoke about it for weeks on end. Every morning she asks if it's her party today.
Only had about 5 RSVPs back from nursery, and quite a few (about 8-10) of my friends kids are supposed to be coming. But I'm so anxious it's not going to be the party she's dreamt of. It's a massive hall, and I've done loads of food and party bags so worried we'll look a bit silly if only 3 or 4 kids come.
Mumsnet, talk some sense into me. She'll love it either way, won't she? And some people are bound to turn up, aren't they?
<lightheartedish> I know she's only little and probably won't even remember. But we've had a tough year and she's been so excited.
But yes people will definitely come and she will have a ball.
If you are worried about looking silly with too much food etc, put a very long tablecloth on the table and hide some of the food and party bags underneath to bring out later if they are needed rather than having it all out on display
I hope she has a wonderful day and that you enjoy it too
Omg that is me. We invited 20 as I have twins and it is their first party at 3 years old And ... one is sick. I have fingers and toes crossed that they are both ok for Sunday ...they have been excited for weeks
I remember a similar thing happening to me when I was about 6/7 it was my birthday and only two turned up for the party ( at our home ) , my very fast thinking dad said this was a very special day with lots of 'happys' ( a term we used for anything good ) just for me and my two friends so that I did not have to share my Happys with other children. It certainly work for me and my friends
