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.
Sweet Endings _ The Cake _ Talk to your child about what she would like. A cake is a good option, but so are cupcakes, ice cream sundaes or even big cookies. You can incorporate the theme (if you have one) either by baking your own cake and decorating with small toys or even trying your hand at drawing something. Local bakeries, grocery stores and many big_box retailers (think Sam's Club or BJ's) can also make theme cakes to order. You may even want to let your young guests get in on the act __ bake a bunch of cupcakes, put out icing, sprinkles and other decorations like chocolate candies and let them get to work creating a culinary masterpiece.
