Don't be afraid to ask other people for help. While you may be in charge of the planning, that does not mean that others can't help with the decorating, food, or even delivering the birthday celebrant. Dividing up the party needs, can make the whole thing come together, smoother and easier.
Completing and mailing birthday party invitations is an unwelcome chore. No wonder parents are tempted to streamline the process by personally handing out birthday party invitations at school.
For older kids, you can have the party at any of the locations mentioned above, plus more. But party guests are more demanding at this age, so you need to be careful in choosing something not too childish. Parties for older children tend to be more expensive and could last an entire day, so plan accordingly.
The most popular locations for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd birthday parties are inexpensive or free. In areas with harsh weather, indoors is always the best option. You can have the party at your own home, the home of a friend or family member, or reserve a space at a casual restaurant or club house. For an outdoors party, any backyard or park will do the trick. And remember, there will be lots of photos of you and your baby so have fun and remember to smile!
A princess party theme gets right down to the food and beverages on offer. Only serve finger food which will allow the princesses to maintain their princess style and elegance. Overly messy foods should be avoided. Princesses are NOT messy! Finger sandwiches, some cookies, ham and cheese rollups, a fruit plate, etc, are always a good idea for a princess party. A cake is also important although care needs be taken to maintain the royal air. Ginger ale, fruit punch or some other beverages will work great.
