Invitation Information _ An invitation should include all the basics __ address, date, time and the guest of honor, but there are other important nuggets that parents may be wondering about. Indicate if a child should be dropped off or if you'd prefer an adult to stay. (Dropping off usually begins around age 5 or 6, but it's still a good idea to let your preference be known.) If parents do leave their children, get a phone number where they can be reached if there are any problems. Also, note if you are serving food so people know if they need to feed their kids, and if possible, let them know what's on the menu to alert those parents who have kids with allergies. Include an RSVP date and don't feel funny about following up with a phone call if you don't hear back.
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.
