front yard b-day party - tacky?
January 26, 2010 at 7:02 PM

im having a garden tea party for my daughters birthday in april , so my question is having it in the front tacky? my backyard is a disaster area from my husband cutting down trees and we have a dog that stays outside so there's no way we could have it in the back. your opinions are greatly appreciated, thanks

    I dont think its tacky BUT I probably wouldnt take my kids, just because I dont like the idea of them being close to the road, birthday parties are crazy and I would be afraid a kid would slip away and run out in front of a car

    "tacky" - probably not.....  BUT

    -how far is your home set back from the road? Is there a big front lawn?

    -do you have a covered porch or large trees to provide shade?

    -do you have a picture you could share?

     I do not think having it in the front yard is tacky but I think you have some very important question to answer about it.  Mostly about safely. I would invites a couple of other ladies to help me get a eye on the kids,

    I have had many o parties for my kiddles in our front yard.  It is way prettier than my back yard.  My kids are 3 and 5.  When they were 1,2 & 3 we had to be very careful of kids getting onto the streets.  But with all the parents there it was never an issue.

    Why not?  I think you could probably do something fun and interesting there.

    Do you live on a busy street?  That would be my only oncern.

    Actually I do think it's kinda on the tacky side, especially if you have close neighbors.  Is there not a local park you could use instead?  Or do you know someone with or rent a tent to use in your yard?

     thanks for the opinions. i live in a subdivision and have a decent size yard and my dd will be turning 10 and its only going to be a 4 maybe 5 of her friends. thought about doing it at the park but you have to pay for a party there. just have to see how much of the back yard i can get cleaned up ..lol

    i gotta be honest..i think its tacky too..not a good look at all. Since its only 4-5 kids coming why dont you have it inside your home? If you planned on cleaning the backyard up anyways then i would pay to get it cleaned up..if you hire some teens looking for extra cash it shouldnt cost that much. I know the teens in my area love doing yard work.
