It is necessary to RSVP for a kids birthday party anymore?
I have been to and planned birthday parties when kids just show up and usually the more the merrier.
But what about if a birthday party happens and nobody RSVPs and you don't have good (reliable) contact information to cancel...
What should you do?
Well this happened to my son and we made a gametime decision to re-schedule the party and I would just take him and his best friend to sunsplash for the day. (Best arcade in area)
We did wait for about 20 mins at the original party location and time, and if anyone did show up we would invite anyone else along to Sunsplash. Nobody showed up so we sped up to Roseville.
Lo and behold someone arrived later at the party location, had my contact details, but I was already up in Roseville. It was an awkward conversation because I didn't want to make the parent feel bad for not RSVPing.
My son did have a super day at Sunsplash with his friend, which was better than 2 kids sitting around a huge table singing happy birthday. But I wonder if I should of done something different?!?
