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.
Plan the food, cakes and drinks that will be served at the party. If the party has a theme, you can buy or make snacks that go along with the theme (i.e. Pirate Booty for a pirate's party). You can also involve your child by baking the birthday cake or cupcakes together.
