Aunt throwing a graduation party
I was taken back when my s-i-l announced that she would throw a graduation part for my son and that my husband and I were invited. Oh, and my sister could come too - but no mention of my brother or other family friends.
What is the proper response? I let it pass. Now the time has come to actually plan a party and she's picked a date. We are out of town and her intention was to have one for his college friends - and that we were invited.
I personally find this rude. The approach should have been, "Would you mind if I threw a party - or would you like to throw a party for your son and have it at my house?" But that didn't happen.
What should my response be and should I attend the party. I wasn't asked to participate or provide anything.
