My guess is...

1) it's exciting to the parents that their kid is having its first birthday


2) parents probably enjoy having parties/get togethers so this is a great excuse to have one

My daughter will turn 1 next month and Dip has nailed my motivation for a party perfectly. I am excited and dumbfounded that my baby is a year old. And, my husband and I used to entertain often. That was before the MIL and baby. This is a great way to get everyone together. No presents (she just wants the box, thank you) and just family and close friends. There will, however, be lots of cake tossed around and BBQ out your ears!

Sounds like the way it should/used to be. Not a big splashy over the top event. Nephew had a party for 2 year old. There were so many presents, they said it would take them at least a week for the 2 year old to even think of opening them.

Too much!

We have never had a blowout birthday party for either of my boys. And, no, that doesn't make me a bad parent. We usually just have lunch/dinner with the family, birthday cake, and maybe a friend stay the night. Works for us...

We did have a relatively big party for our daughter when she turned 1. She is adopted and it's about 99% certain she will be our only child, so I've gone a little more "all out" for her than I probably would have otherwise. That said, that party was probably around 20 guests, all of which were family or very close friends, and was held at our home. Birthdays 2 and 3 we have gone out to eat with DH, me, and my parents and had a small cake at the restaurant -- very low-key. DD turned 4 this year and said she didn't want a big party. We went to IHOP with about 8 people. I don't understand spending so much and going to all that stress as a lot of people do!

Family cookout for my lil ones first. She had her own cake and ate it up.

The biggest party I've given for either girl as been a bowling party and we requested no gifts so everyone felt comfortable coming.
