Watch the Clock _ If your party is at home, it is important to have a beginning and ending time. Don't leave the party open_ended as it could confuse guests and not allow them to plan for the rest of the day. For parties for kids under 5, figure for about 90 minutes, two hours tops.
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.
