Determining the Destination _ If you don't have the room or the inclination to host the party at home, there are plenty of places you can go instead, but you should book this type of party several months in advance if possible. Good places fill up quickly, especially those that can only host one party at a time. If you choose to avoid the pre_planned party route such as Build_a_Bear or bowling, consider privately_owned recreation rooms (possibly owned by a church or firehouse), a park (have a rain date), or even your local daycare center. These are great places because they are generally closed on weekends, parents can often hire the teachers to work the party and the kids are comfortable because it is a place they are familiar with.
Age is an Important Number _ Make sure everything, from activities to goody bag treats, is age_appropriate for the majority of your guests. If there is a wide range of ages, use the age of the birthday child as a guide. The child's age is also a good indicator of how many children to invite, the rule of thumb generally is one child for every year plus 2. So if your child is turning four, try to keep the guest list at six children. Age also plays an important role in setting the theme and deciding where to have your party. Younger children might be comfortable in a home but feel your child out to get a good read on the situation.
