Birthday Parties became inevitable for all ages, especially for kids. Depending on where you live and how many guests you invite, it is becoming an expensive yearly event, an event which we tend to forget in annual budgeting. Its lot of fun to have birthday party for Kids. But just how much money does a typical birthday party cost?
For the purposes of estimation, I have collected the data from around 10 birthday party places in Rockville, Maryland, a city very close to DC. I took different venues, called each one of them and the average cost per birthday for 20 kids including the return gifts may vary from $450 to $600 depending on the venue. This does not include a special cake, extra decoration or food and drinks for parents. If you spend around $200 for the above which are unavoidable, it is coming to $800 for each birthday party. If we calculate this for 17 years, assuming that you don’t need to pay from 18 th birthday, it would cost around $13,600 for one child. Remember this does not include the gifts Kids need to take to the birthdays they attend.
According to the statistics released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, parents will spend an average of $235,000 to raise a child born in 2011 to the age of 17. (And that’s not taking into account any savings for college). Housing, food, clothing, health care, child care, schooling and the list of compulsory expenses goes on and on. Optional or discretionary spending such as family vacations, birthday gifts and birthday parties are mostly extra. Just for birthday Parties till the age 17 for each kid would cost $13,600 which is almost 5.8% of the USDA’s estimate of $235000.

As Geoffrey Fisher said “Good plans shape good decisions. That’s why good planning helps to make elusive dreams come true.”
Birthday became one of the most common events in every one’s life. When we think of a birthday, we tend to visualize balloons, candles, cake, food, beverages, flowers, gifts, restaurants, vacation spots and so and so forth. Irrespective of age, language, religion and geographical region across the world, in each country every day number of birthdays are being celebrated. Did you ever wonder about how many birthdays are being celebrated per day around the world?
Wiki answers took a good approach to estimate the number of birthdays celebrated per day. Take the world population and divide that by the number of days in a year and you get the number birthdays being celebrated. I would go one step further and bring the number bit closer to the reality by considering people who may not afford the celebration. As per World Bank Report around 1.22 billion people are living under poverty line in year 2010. If we do the simple math now, 7 billion is total population; around 1.3 billion may not be able to celebrate. It comes to 5.7 billion. Even if we take 70% of 5.7 it comes close to 4 billion. Approximately around 10,958,904 birthdays are being celebrated each day around the world. If we consider World Bank reports average life expectancy, each person could celebrate around 67 birthdays in his life.
Birthday, a beautiful life deserves to be celebrated with family and friends. What else can we do on a birthday, in addition to the cake, food, gifts and fun? We live in the world where we don’t have enough time to think or look back to see our achievements, journey and challenges. How about spending couple of hours or a day to review your social, personal and physical progress and could utilize birthday as a personal milestone every year. We can make it more casual and fun and can share and listen to other close friends and family. Here is the list we thought can be useful to review on or around birthday time.
