Birthday Party Starters

2. Choose your location-You can always start with your house, but keep your options and your eyes open for venues that won't break the bank. We once threw our youngest a Tinkerbell themed party at our neighborhood park. The only cost for the venue was decorations and clean up. Thankfully, it had the feel of a picnic and guest felt more inclined to help clean up. Afterwards, we went home to a clean house!
3. Don't forget the cake-There's nothing worst than a great party with terrible cake! If you're like most hubbies, you're just not into baking. If you decide to get a cake from Walmart or a local bakery, most of them will allow you to sample the product before you order. So, take your kid with you on cake tasting around town. Make sure you find out how early you have to place the order.
4. Invitations- Once you get your kiddo's party all mapped out...it's time to put it on paper. If you want people to show up, a party invitation is a MUST! Mailed invites just give your party that official feel. People are more likely to make the event a priority if you take the time to mail them an invite. Not to mention, if you include the theme on it, they can begin to feel the fun factor. You can even hire someone to quickly design an invitation, so that all you have to do is print it.
5. Have fun-Remember the whole point of a good party is fun. Fortunately it doesn't take much to think up or simply Google some fun party games. Because children are hardwired for fun you only need to have about 3 party activities in order to have party success.
