Why should I plan early for birthday parties?

Planning Keeps Things Simple

Planning ahead is the key to a successful birthday party. Here are some things you can do ahead of time, according to the experts, that will ensure your birthday party runs as smoothly as possible.

Stock up now on birthday party supplies! A few weeks ahead of time, purchase matching invitations, banners, cups, napkins, plates, and favors. Craft and party stores should carry almost everything you need.

  • By starting early, you'll have time to order a cake that matches the plates and invitations and overall theme.
  • You will put your mind at ease if your supplies are packed neatly in your home instead of spread out across several aisles in a store waiting for you to find and buy them. You will also be able to take inventory and have time to run out for those last minute items you have forgotten or decided are a must.
  • Party dates, especially those on weekend, book far in advance. Ensure that everyone is able to come to your party by deciding on a date early and spreading the word.

    Please provide tips for making goody bags for kids aged 5 to 7 years of age, for my son first birthday party.

    Goody Bags can include a variety of different items, such as pencils, play-dough, tiny yo-yo's, army men action figures, whistles, bouncy balls, bubbles, candy and other inexpensive thematic toys. Make sure that the items you include are age appropriate for your guests. If you are concerned, err on caution just to be safe.
