Toddler Party Etiquette

Help me out here. When did toddler parties get so complicated? We are preparing for Milla’s 2nd birthday. Due to belonging to several ‘groups’ she will be having two parties, one at the park and one at the farm. Simple enough and yet not. One group is nice and chilled; they will bring their own picnics, I will provide cake and the kids can run around the farm while we gossip. The other group has set the bar for: party ‘tea’ (can’t abide calling a meal a tea but only option given time of day), gifts and party bags.

This party is joint with another child from the group whose Mama is also slightly aghast at party bags etc for two year olds. But of course we are doing it as everyone else has. I took my opportunity to get my name down for an easy job and took on bags. Here is what I’ve got so far: brown paper bags with fab Creature Comfort Apple Notes stuck on, Lotta Bruhn Space Stickers, a few crayons and some star shaped biscuits. Is that enough? I hope it is as I won’t be dashing out to buy some plastic bag fillers which will break / clutter the house / be thrown away within days.

*Sigh* am I just an old misery guts?
