For me, I actually splurge on all three (within reason), but I value the entertainment most. I want my daughter and her friends to have a fantastic time that they will all remember and kids usually don't care whether it is a fancy cake, or a cake mix...

Check out some of these creative kid's birthday parties...

    We usually just have a normal dinner unless there is an actual party, which hasn't happened in the past so many years. So for us now, the priciest thing on this list is the cake.

    The Food--we go as a family to a nice restaurant for our parties--that way there is no clean-up, and everyone can order what they want, everyone is happy.

    The cake
    Remember the good ole days when a kid's birthday party was just a few friends coming over for cake and ice cream? I think this "social event of the season" that seems to have to happen at kid's birthday parties nowadays is the product of TV shows and people thinking that is the norm. It has taken on a life of it's own now and you are considered a bad parent if you don't spend a fortune each year.

    The expectations we place in kids heads are not doing them any favors.
