Talk with preschool and older children about a party theme (if they'd like one), whom to invite, and where to have the event. You might give your child a choice between two outdoor playgrounds, for example. See if your local Bright Horizons center hosts birthday parties.
That's Entertainment! _ When hiring an entertainer for your child's party __ whether you have it in your home or at an outside destination, ask key questions like how long their performance is, how much space they need and if they will be in costume the whole time. (Some companies have their performers change costumes mid_party which can be confusing for young children.) If cost is a factor and hiring a professional doesn't fit into your budget, check at your local high school. You might find some members of the drama club who'd be willing to perform or some art students who'd you could hire to do some face painting.
