Two to Three Weeks Before the Birthday Party _ What's a birthday party without guests? Two to three weeks before the party is the time to send out invitations. On the invitation, be sure to let your invitees know that they can RSVP by phone call or text. Keep the list of who has RSVP'd somewhere you won't lose it, like in the notes of your phone or posted on the fridge. By this time, the entertainment and venue should already be booked, so figure out what other activities and games you want the party to have. Maybe a craft or a pinata? If you aren't baking a cake yourself, be sure to order one, along with the rest of the birthday party food. Create a quick birthday party checklist so you can stay organized.
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.
