Two to Three Days Ahead _ In the days leading up to your party, shoot a text to any guests who have yet to RSVP. You want to make sure you have the right head count for the rest of your birthday party preparation. If you are doing the party food yourself, this is the time to hit the grocery store. Pick up the groceries you need, candles for the cake, and candy for party favors or to fill a pinata. Gather your pals to help you with the birthday preparation, they can assemble party favor bags and decorations.
Think About Themes _ Whether your preschooler loves Dora, Handy Manny, or the Backyardigans, chances are you can find birthday party goodies that span the spectrum, from plates to wall hangings. And it's not just about decorations. Popular characters lend themselves to other facets of the celebration, like games, food, and crafts. At a Dora party, for instance, you can set up an adventure course and make an animal mask. Serve up sandwiches you cut from train_shaped cookie cutters at a Thomas the Tank Engine party. And if you are so inclined, the big finale can be when the birthday child's favorite character shows up. No matter where you hold the party, the theme is something your child is going to want to be involved with, so make sure to get her input.
