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.
Prepare your camera and camcorder to capture the moments. If you are into scrapbooking, put all the pictures, invitations, thank you notes, etc. to your scrapbook. Decorate your house depending on the party theme that you choose. Buy the necessary decors like balloons, piñatas, banners, streamers, confetti, etc. Use tablecloth, utensils, and dinnerware that match the theme of the party.
It is not difficult to place an order for personalized shot glasses especially if you make your order online. There are many vendors who sell the shooter glasses and will be willing to personalize them for you. The advantage of shopping online is that the glasses are much cheaper compared to other outlets and there is a very wide selection from which you can choose from.
Make sure to send invitations early. Kids and parents seem to have very busy scheduled these days, so it is always a good idea to invite ahead of time. Two great places to order kids birthday party invitations are Etsy and TinyPrints. Etsy is the best place to start if you are looking for unique party invitations that will be a perfect match to your kids birthday party theme. There are plenty of shops that create custom invitations.
Some adults love getting caught unaware and having a surprise birthday-party arranged by their family and friends for them. As adults grow older, they prefer a quieter birthday-party with just their family.
