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.
Older children may request a sleep over birthday party. Consider whether this is something you would like to supervise recognizing that you probably won't get much sleep. That said a sleep over with a small group can be a wonderful close time for children that they'll remember for years.
