Lol. Just host at a park. Or rent a play room. First bday is mostly about parents drinking beer/wine anyways. Make sure you get a pic with cupcake smashed on the face and you’ve checked all the boxes

A party planner for your kid’s first bday? I’ll do it if you pay me lol

A first bday? You realize this is a party for you and not them, right? They aren't going to remember anything for another year or so. Don't throw your money away! They aren't going to care about the pictures looking back anyways.

Make sure you get a keg or something. Parents need something to dull the headache that comes from a bunch of kids screaming all at once

Just have a few people over to your place for pizza and cake. Get an extra little "smash cake" for the baby. That's it.

Agree with everyone else. However I’m a dude. My wife does crazy wasteful things like that all the time

Save the money and let the kid spend it on his her first spring break

Do it. My first birthday had 100 people and was on a rooftop. This is a big birthday!

I can plan your baby’s party

I put in my two weeks about a week and a half ago. Upon putting in my two weeks, I immediately told all my managers so we can start planning for transition.

I kinda want to push back because I'm super overwhelmed and I honestly don't know how I'll get through everything they want me to do without working the whole weekend. I am just being a big baby? Or ideas of how to push back?
