Six to Eight Weeks Before the Birthday Party _ Six to eight weeks out is the decision_making period. Decide on a theme, a guest list, a venue, and the entertainment. If you are planning this birthday party for someone else, discuss the people they do (or don't) want at their shindig. If you are planning a surprise party, you will have to find a way to ask covertly. Once you decide on a birthday party theme, order decorations and invitations. When thinking about birthday decoration ideas, consider your venue, the size of your party, and what activities you'll have during the party. Six to eight weeks before the birthday party is also the ideal time to reserve a venue and book entertainment.
Two to Three Weeks Before the Birthday Party _ What's a birthday party without guests? Two to three weeks before the party is the time to send out invitations. On the invitation, be sure to let your invitees know that they can RSVP by phone call or text. Keep the list of who has RSVP'd somewhere you won't lose it, like in the notes of your phone or posted on the fridge. By this time, the entertainment and venue should already be booked, so figure out what other activities and games you want the party to have. Maybe a craft or a pinata? If you aren't baking a cake yourself, be sure to order one, along with the rest of the birthday party food. Create a quick birthday party checklist so you can stay organized.
