One Hour Before the Birthday Party _ As the party gets closer, think of the details. Do you need to put pets away from the party area? Is the birthday boy or girl dressed and ready? Is the pinata hung? Are the candles and matches ready for the cake? Make sure all of the food is set up, as well as the first birthday party activity. Once all of that party preparation is done, get ready to just enjoy the party.
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.
