Many will be able to relate to this, holding a birthday party in January can be tricky: people are away on holiday and the timing of sending out the invitations can clash with Christmas.
Do you hold a party in February, have a family only party or ask find out when friends are free in January?

  • The bonus with a family party and then a friend party is 2 parties! :)

  • This is a hard one, and while I don’t have anyone in my immediate family with a January birthday, we have a few friends who do, and it’s always hard for them to organise anything. Usually I think they do a family cake and coffee/ easy BBQ on or very close to the birthday and then a bit later on have a get together with friends. This seems to work for them, and more people are able to come when it’s a bit later on

  • We have birthdays during holidays too and we have small family celebration on the day and then delay a party with friends for a little later.
