Birthday Partis - go big or stay home?

how do you celebrate birthdays? Does it depend on the age?? I've always wanted to do a big huge fancy party (like the ones you see on Pinterest!) but I haven't yet. For us, the first 2 years are pretty low key - just family at home or something. By 3, Mason and Audrey have both been big enough to have an opinion on how they want to celebrate so we threw an actual party... but they have been pretty small scale compared to some of the ones I see online. Do you do big parties?? I would love to see some pictures if you do!
