Birthday Parties- Why Not Make Some Fun at Home?

Birthday parties have changed significantly since I was a child. It used to be that a few friends came over, everyone played and the highlight was cake and opening presents. Today on the other hand birthday parties have turned into major events. Parties have to be planned weeks in advance in order to secure a venue and invitations need to be sent out weeks in advance in the hopes that people are still available come your party date. Not only have the parties gotten more extravagant but so have the favors. Favors have gone from what used to be a bag of candy and maybe a few “crackerjack” type toys to presents in and of themselves.

Where I live the average cost of a birthday party is somewhere between $400-$500. That includes the place, the cake and the favors. What has happened to the simple home party and why do we need to indulge our children in such extravagance at such a young age?
