Star Party Tips - Children’s Birthday Party Planning Timeline

September 8, 2016

 Planning children's parties can be viewed the same way as planning family vacations…getting there is half the challenge. With birthday parties there's the planning, deciding on a theme and decorations then the oh-so important activities.  With vacations there’s the planning, deciding where to go, deciding on lodging and the oh-so important activities. All of this makes the days leading up to the event seem a little stressful. Kind of like the days leading up to vacations.

 

Remember children's parties don't need to be elaborate -- kids will be happy with a small party as long as they are the star.  Even simple parties require planning and the sooner you start the better.

 

First things first – ask the birthday child what type of party they want and try to involve them in the planning.

 

6 WEEKS BEFORE

-Choose the theme

-Create the guest list (if your child has a BFF remember to check their availability)

-Reserve the venue (if you're not using your home)

 

4 WEEKS BEFORE

-Prepare invitations (unless you’re sending them electronically)

-Get updated class list (if you're not inviting the entire class DO NOT pass the invitations out at school)

-Decide games, activities and prizes

 

3 WEEKS BEFORE

-Mail invitations

-Purchase party goods

-Start making homemade decorations and favors

-Call some friends and family members and ask if they're willing to assist at the party

-Decide on the food you'll have; if you plan to order now is a good time

 

1 TO 2 WEEKS BEFORE

-Purchase supplies/prizes for crafts/activities

-If you're not making favors purchase them now (instead of candy use fruit snacks, yogurt covered raisins)

-Create a timeline for the party

-Order the cake if you're not baking it

 

3 DAYS BEFORE

-Call guests who have not responded yet

-If you’re ordering food now is the time to confirm count with the caterer or buy the food you plan to prepare

 

1 TO 2 DAYS BEFORE

-Bake the cake and desserts

-Decorate your home; if the party is off-site make sure all supplies are gathered

-Prepare food

 

THE DAY OF

-Your helpers should arrive an hour and a half to two hours prior to the event start time to set up

-Remember to let the day just flow naturally; don’t be a stickler with the timeline/checklist AND don't make a big deal if things don't go as planned

 

Some might find it satisfying to "do it yourself"; many simply don't have the time or desire.  Those are the ones we LOVE. So give us a call at 866-972-7897 or visit us at www.starparty.net and then sit back and relax.
