In this economy I think that it is perfectly ok to not have a birthday party. Maybe instead you two could have a special "girl's day out". Go to her favorite restaurant, even if it is Burger King, then go get matching manicures and pedicures. Maybe get your hair done, too. Make it a special day for the two of you. She will remember that forever, whereas she won't remember a party with kids she won't be friends with in 10 years. Screw the other parents/kids. Raise your kid to be better than them.

I am very sorry to hear that. My family did not even have the heart to show up for my nephew's 4th b-day party. I am still heart broken and crying but, I did not let Aiden see my emotions. He still had fun with my parents, sister and I. We focused everything on him, balloons, cake, and some good movies. Hope you daughter understands.
I wish you the best.

My daughter is 5. For the past 5 years since she was a baby I have killed myself to attend everyone's birthday, pick up gifts, RVSP, change plans, drive all over the city to birthday parties. This year I decided no more parties. I work full time, my mom has cancer, life is busy. Just eliminating the birthday party (we have 1-2 a month) has made a huge difference, it wasn't just the attending, it was the time to gift buy. This year for her own birthday we decided on just a family birthday. Does a 5 year old really need 20 plastic $20 birthday gifts?
I do think it is terrible not to RVSP - that's just RUDE. I hope you can have a fun family party and not make it such a big deal for your daughter. I wouldn't assume it's because no one likes her, her friends could just have parents like me who after 5 years of this just want to start saying no. I've also started saying no to the aftershool playdates. My daughter is around 16 kids all day long, out of school I think the one to one adult child time is more important than more socialzing with other kids.

We just relocated to Georgia, and I live in a very racist town. The kind where they have confederate flags on their license place. My son attends school there and because we were raised on the liberal west coast I am not use to white folks separating themselves from other races. Well I invited about 10 kids from his class because he is one of very few african americans. Just like I expected none of them have rsvp, my thought is that they figured out what color we were and decided against it. Very sad indeed, I have no family here so he will just have to celebrate with his sister only. We picked the wrong place to relocate to.

The same thing happened here . It is 7 days till party no one has called so I called them 12 people said no ,so I invited another 12 people that dont even know one another . A couple fromn her girl scout troop a couple from neighbor hood and a couple from 4 h club no one still hasnt called I called them and they all said maybe we arent sure if there is a plan that day for us or our family I said get back to me and I eailed them the information about party and said we would love for your child to come . I have to pay for part of party and wont get refunded the 40.00 down payment . the whole swim party includes a wrist band so each child 12 kids can swim for 4 hours and eat 3 pizzas the place gives us 3 in the party package and all the pop we can drink and tokens for the arcade all for 120. Its alot but I would be spending 179-200 if I payed for pizza and tokens and pop all by my self with out party package it is a water slide park and I thought kids would love to come to a free day at the water park . My child will be 11 the funny thing is she does play and have paly dates with these kids at my house and at theirs . the weird thing about it they dont want to come or what??? Well I GAVE A PARTY right here in the town right close by to every one in local pool paid admission and all and no one showed up I invited 24. I called parents and all said maybe .

I know how you feel! My daughter wanted to have a party for her 6th birthday so I sent out 20 invitations. All the girls in her class and to some at church and a couple of others. 2 girls showed up to her birthday party. I rented a room and spent alot of time and money on this birthday party to make it special for my daughter. She had fun with the 2 that were there but the others that were invited did not RSVP. I would have changed my plans around a little if I had know that was going to be just the three of them. It is so rude not to RSVP! I have had this horrible guilty feeling since her party this weekend. I feel like I let her down! ...My daughter is a fun girl though ... the other kids really missed out on some fun.

Well, that happen to me(: but i figure out it was a surprise party(: ~! . maybe it the same for you too? 

Name: Laddette | Date: Apr 5th, 2011 6:14 AM
ok, this has never happened to me, but heres my 12 year old 2 cents,

You dont have to have kids over. you can have a fun movie night with your family and then take her to the beach. She cant sit still so use that to your advantage. the beach is a fun place to run around and have lots and lots of fun. Then take her to toys R us or something and to finish it al off get an awesome dinner [WHAT SHEEEE WANTS] and then get some ice cream. let her stay up late and do what she wants. Im tweleve and id do that for my bday

ps, i turn twelve tom.

If that's the case, why don't you ask your daughter what she really wants for her birthday. You could give her that gift and just have an intimate family dinner in a nice restaurant. Or maybe you could travel somewhere you haven't been to before and enjoy fun and new activities with your daughter.

It sounds like you are the one being bullied and ignored by the PTA Bullies. No kid hardly ever refuses to attend a party.

Maybe do something fun with your family you can go to places like Kangaroo Zoo or hollywood conecttion. Maybe go to her school and figure out who is more like her.

Wow, I know this is an old post, but that is really awful. That happened to me once, my kids are 13 months apart and no one rsvp'd for the 2nd party (a month after my daughter's 3rd) but he was only 2 so we just took him to the zoo. But I like the advice about Chuck E Cheese or something where there are a lot of kids.
Anyhow, the birthday is probably long past now but good luck with future plans!
