RSVP is a lost art

April 24th, 2008 at 04:47 pm

Every birthday that we actually do crafts we tend to buy double the supplies..just in case, because I have no response negative or affirmative from so many folk!

Now extra food we can use but extra crafts are usually kinda specialized (aprons for the chef, crowns for the princess, dragon eggs for the umm dragon friend?)

I really think a RSVP email is a simple thing that takes just a few minutes and can really make a difference in ones planning (not to mention the budget of the party.

Oh and the extra aprons wen to the scouts to try and keep the paint off the uniforms. (what is so hard about removing a class A shirt..there should be a t-shirt under it!)

But I really don't know what the extra dragon eggs would be for...unless we add them to next years Egg hunt...

    I so agree about RSVP's. I've actually never had anyone show up that didn't call, but if you don't hear either way it is annoying for planning purposes.

    Boy, you aren't kidding about the lack of RSVPs. I thought it was a Seattle thing. I used to have to work events at work - and I could see the event planner go crazy. Not only would you have no responders show, you'd get the different responders - folks who would show up in lieu of the invitee. And then they'd get upset with no name tag. AAAAUUUURRRGGGH!!!!
    Its as if the invitees wait to see if a better party came along.

    I have noticed this about kids' parties too.
