Question on birthday party

Hello! I posted here on and off. Probably no one remembers me. But what better place to seek advise than from you ladies.

This is more of an etiquette question. My dd will be 5 years old end of the month. She really wants to have a b-day party since she was invited to many of them. Anyway, we were planning on a trip so we weren't going to do a b-day party till in July. But the trip was cancelled, the inlaws are in town, and dd really wants one. So I booked an indoor play facility (inlaws are town, we need a bigger room than my house), sent out invitations to dd's friends a few days ago. They would have received it 10 days prior to the party. So far no one RSVP. Now I am worried that I didn't give enough advance notice. Is it ok to call them next week to confirm whether they are coming? I probably worry too much, but I haven't organize a b-day party for years. Thanks, Pauline

Yes you can call them! Non-RSVPers are one of my little pet peeves. Ten days is enough notice for a party. If you feel at all awkward about it, say that the play facility needs a firm count.

Have a great time, and happy birthday (early) to your DD!

I would call!

DD had her b-day party with her ECFE friends We moms had our own class while the kids were in theirs so the RSVP for me were easy. I woiuld make a call just say you are getting a head count for the party. To make sure that there are enough prizes cake etc!

Easy as that!
