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.
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.
