In Good Favor _ Hand out goody bags at the end, as the children leave, so you greatly reduce the chance of lost items or misunderstandings. There are plenty of options __ if you are having a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse party, for example, purchase favors related to that theme _ stickers, notepads, pens, and more at all different price points. A popular favor, no matter what type of party your child may be having, are drink cups. They serve a dual_purpose __ you can use them at the party and then send them home with the guests. If you aren't thrilled with the idea of buying a bunch of small toys, consider buying one item __ a shovel and pail, a book or even coloring books and crayons. Make sure whatever you choose is clearly labeled with the child's name.
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.
