Blogging ABC News: The $50,000 Birthday Party

Jun 13, 2007

How much is too much? According to a recent article on the ABCNews website, kids birthday parties are starting to rival P Diddy's annual Hamptons bash. From first birthday parties being held at the Mandrian Oriental Hotel in Manhattan to renting out FAO Schwartz, some parents will stop at nothing to throw a bash more worthy of a wedding than a toddler's birthday.

We wonder, as new parents, will we always be able to recognize when we have crossed the line from generosity to extravagance, and do we always recognize the difference between indulging our children and one-upping our social circle? Because we all like to think we do. We bet every parent mentioned in this article would say they do, and yet .... the $50,000 birthday party. For a one year old.

Are you throwing a birthday bash this summer? Able to do it for less than $50,000? Tell us how you did it!
