    i was just wondering if its bad manners to have a birthday party potluck???

    i was making a list of people to invite to alexis' birthday and just from family and close friends there are about 50 + people...i can't afford to feed that many lol, so is it rude to ask everyone to bring potluck???

    also do any of you have any good ideas for parties?? i think its going to be a dora theme...but thats pretty much all i know haha
    thanks

    If it's family & close friends I would certainly ask ....

    I think it would be a case of generally saying there is x many people invited & how you would appriciate an little party extras if they can although with family I would ask outright & note what they are bringing so you can wipe it off your list!!

    it is mostly family and close friends coming, so i don't think they will be too offended, cuz i have a pretty big family and not a huge amount of funds :) especially with her birthday being so close to christmas...thats why i was thinking this anyways :D so i will do that wobbles, and be tactful for the not so close people, and just ask my family :) i'm sure they won't care i just didn't want to come across rude lol

    and hypnorm, i don't blame you for not having a big party for your son, i think the only reason i am doing this for alexis is because the baby is coming a couple weeks after her birthday so i'm afraid she will think its all about him for a little while, so i want something big for her :)
