A Children’s Birthday Party Planning Guide for Beginners

The Specifics

Before you can start any legitimate planning, you first have to choose a date, time and length of your child’s birthday party. Depending on their age group, certain times work better than others, especially if there are going to be infants in attendance.

Generally, the younger the child, the earlier the party should be. If all of the children are in school, you will also have to work around that.

The Theme

Once you have the date and before you send out invitations, you or your child should choose a theme for the party. This will give you something to base the invitations, decorations, activities and pretty much everything else off of.

Although character parties are popular, many kids also choose general themes like princesses or sports, too. It’s really all about what you and especially your child want. It’s their day, after all!

Inviting Guests

Inviting kids to a children’s birthday party is a little different than a typical event. Most of the time, people will tell you to only have as many guests as your child’s age. However, there’s a little more to it than that.

First of all, you have to consider whether or not you are going to invite siblings. Since kids parties have their own dynamic, be sure that the invitations also include a start time, end time, what each child should bring and whether or not there will be a meal.
