Be creative with the food! While birthday cake and punch is fine, for a casual gathering, it doesn't take much more effort to make the party food really shine. If you are worried about budget, you can ask each party guest to bring a favorite party dish (or something reminiscent of the birthday boy or girl), to add as a potluck favorite. A taco, soup or potato bar, can feed a lot of people, without putting a major dent in the budget, and best of all most of the food can be prepared ahead. For a really easy solution for food, you can have the party at the birthday celebrant's favorite restaurant, just be sure to let the each of the party guests know the menu prices, if you won't be picking up the tab.
One of the first things you should do is select a theme for your girls birthday party. The best place to start is her interests. What is your girl into these days? Does she have a favorite hobby or TV show? If your girl is old enough, you can ask her what theme she would prefer. If you are planning a surprise birthday party, then you can look for help from her friends.
If you want to be able to stick with your birthday idea, you will also need to focus on your decorations as well. This will help create the overall look for the party. For instance, if the party is about Disney Princesses, you can make tiaras as party hats and use pink table clothes. The table napkins and paper plates could also be printed with princesses. If you are putting up a stage, design it like a castle to give more royalty feel to the birthday party.
Regardless of the location of the party, you will require an array of party supplies. The supplies are chosen according to the age and preferences of the person whose birthday is to be celebrated. You will need invitations and different types of event decorations such as brightly colored balloons, hats, bells, whistles, costumes, chairs, tables, party linens and food service items.
One might think there's nothing more innocent and free spirited than the act of extending birthday party invitations. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
