In keeping with how most birthday party favors are done, the shot glasses can be themed along the same lines with the party including the colors that are used for the party. It would be good to match everything up and personalize the event along one running theme. If you are going to serve alcohol at the party, personalized shot glasses can be used to make it even much more fun. The glasses can then be served so that they are ready to be used at the occasion. You can also include a special message for the event particularly a message of appreciation that is directed to your special guests at the event.
While looking on the internet for birthday party invitations you will very likely find some template software that will guide you step by step through the process. Template software gives you the best of both words, it is as easy to use as ready made invitations that you really get to create yourself.
When my younger daughter Hannah was in preschool, I noticed that parents would tuck birthday party invitations into the children's open cubby squares. Though this method did not present a problem when all children in a class were invited to a party, when some youngsters were invited and others were not - particularly when the invitations were in brightly colored envelopes - it was all-too-clear to the ones not invited that there was no envelope in their cubbyhole. In the preschool years, it's better for parents to hand the invitations directly to the other parents or caregivers. Or, if that's not possible due to work schedules, to bite the bullet and mail them. Better yet, to email the invitations if that's an agreeable alternative.
Prepare your guest list weeks or months in advance so no one gets left out. Depending on the theme of your party, you can search the web for the right images for your invitations. There are also many free printables that are available online. You can also hire the services of professionals to make your invitations. Once your invitations are ready, send them out two to three weeks prior to the party. Don't send the invitations when it is already very near the party date because your guests might have made other plans and commitments.
Start a little early-You will want to get the food out around ½ an hour, before the birthday person arrives and the drinks around 15-10 minutes earlier. This way you don't have to rush out to get more things, and the party can start as soon as the birthday star gets there!
