Just wondering. Have sent out invitations for a 5th birthday party, but haven't heard back from a few people. The invitations went out just before half term and I think it's quite possible that they could have got lost (they went home with the kids in school bags) so I wondered if I ought to try and contact the parents who haven't answered and ask if they have got them. I have phone numbers for a couple but not all. I don't want them to think they've just not been invited, esp as we have been to some of their own bday parties, but equally don't want to make them feel pressurised into coming if they are just hoping to avoid it! smile

I would say if they are close friends/it's not a very big party then yes but otherwise not.

Yes of course it's fine. Reply please. They haven't. Extremely rude if they have the invitation. If they haven't their dc may be disappointed.

Yes, of course, especially if the invitations went home with the children.

For a kids birthday I chase up with parents if I have their phone no's as my dc's have lost invitations in the past. Also my dd's birthday is just after a mid-term.

I hate people turning up who haven't rsvped

I'd chase up also from the other point of view I'd appreciate a parent chasing me if I'd not rsvpd to avoid disappointment for my dd of the invitation had gone astray
