Expensive birthday parties

Lize: This must be for weddings too. People don't understand how much it costs lately. That will teach each and everyone not just for birthday parties but any occasion that it's important to show if you said you would!

Andrea: A kid's birthday party is not suppose to be so expensive! You can't put it in the same category as a wedding.

Annelle: I have a friend that spent R10,000 on her son's FIRST birthday party. My daughter has been invited to birthday parties where, after careful questioning, it was discovered that the bill for the party was in excess of R50,000. Not in the "Wedding League"? I think parents pay for their children.
