Just because you have money!!!!!!!!!
Just because you have money there is no reason for throwing a child a $100,000 2nd birthday party. That is my opinion......and I'm sticking to it.
Please don't get me wrong......I'm all for children having special birthday parties. But to spend $4,500 on catering and a $5,000 birthday cake. Also I'm not picking on Tom Cruise and his family. I love to watch Tom Cruise in movies and at times he does have wonderful ideas. It doesn't bother me that he is a Scientologist. Everybody has a right to believe what they feel is right for them.
Did Tom feel that because he is a big bucks actor that he had to throw such a lavish affair for his daughter's birthday? If he did.......that's called "Keeping up with the Jones".
When I was a child my mother provided us with memorable birthday parties. For my 16th birthday she asked me what kind of cake I wanted. I wanted Root Beer cake and Root Beer ice cream. My Mom baked a Root Beer cake with Root Beer Frosting. Then Dad helped her make Homemade Root Beer Ice Cream. We invited family and friends to my party. Mom decorated the house with a fall theme for my party. We had so much fun that day celebrating my 16th birthday. I cannot tell you what I got for my birthday.....but I do remember the love I felt that day from my family and friends.
