Should Your Next Birthday Celebration be a Small Intimate Party or a Huge Birthday Bash?

Having a birthday right around the corner and not having any plans can be pretty stressful. Obviously you want to celebrate and make the most of your special day, it only comes around once a year, of course! First things first, decide if you want to invite everyone you have ever met or just your closest friends. There are pros and cons to either choice. With a small intimate party you get a chance to spend more time with each of your guests, remember these are your good friends that you may not see very often. On the other hand, huge birthday bashes are exciting and having a birthday is a great excuse to invite everyone out for a fun night of dancing and partying!
