That's so frustrating. It's been awhile since I've had a party, but it seems to pretty common nowadays, which is very sad. Do you know any of the parents to call them and double check?

I really hope that you have a good turnout.

UGH! Well, I'm glad it turned out okay for the most part. Hopefully your kiddo had a blast and that is what really matters!

It just always amazes me how rude people are! Not RSVPing and bringing siblings to the party are my two biggest pet peeves when it comes to birthday parties. It gets so bad that it has made me not want to host parties for my kids!

I'm glad the party was a success. I bet you could have lived without the RSVP stress of it all though ;) Who RSVPs during the party????

I have heard that this happens, but haven't experienced it. did you say on the invite when they should RSVP by? I would also mention it to the moms casually when you see them...could be that the invitations died at the bottom of their kids backpack...which is why I always do party invites online in addition to having my daughter pass them out to her friends. But I do find that people wait till the last second, which is why you definitely need an RSVP deadline if you want any advance notice so you can plan!
