PREPARING FOR A CHILDREN’S PARTY
Who to invite?
If you’re on a tight budget, having a theme for guests is applicable. You can have an all-boys or all-girls party or that ‘age plus one’ rule; you don’t have to invite the whole class if you don’t want to. However, if you are about to invite almost the whole class, then invite all anyway.
Where to send invites?
Sending invites electronically / e-invites are very popular for most, however, there are still parents who prefer to send the traditional way of sending invites. So the question now is which is better? Both ways of sending invites have its pros and cons. Let’s have e-invites first.
E-invites are very convenient. With just a few clicks and you’re done. Moreover, it’s budget friendly as well. Imagine how much cost you will be saving if you don’t need to print them anymore. However, not everyone has an e-mail address or not into social media, so chances are the grandpa, grandmas will not be receiving anything.
On the other hand, the traditional kind of invites gives your invitees the special treatment they deserve. More especially with the DIY invites nowadays, the unique style and effort you will be doing will be much appreciated. On contrary, it is very time-consuming as you need to prepare and distribute it. And oh, the budget.
When to finalize the RSVP?
Some people don’t give importance to the RSVP thing when they’ve received invites and as the party organizer, it’s very stressful to be on a hang just because you haven’t received any confirmation from some close friends and families. Though you already made the deadline clear on the invites, it is still okay to contact those you haven’t heard until then. By that, you’ll be much sure on the number of guests that are arriving.
What to put in goody bags?
Goody bags have been a part of every kids’ (and adults too) parties so deciding on what to put on it and how to present it is really important. The traditional way of having goody bags is by purchasing an already made party bags filled with candies and stuff; but as the world evolves, goody bags evolved as well. You can try to think of alternative things to present your goody items, like putting the candies in a tumbler or a personally decorated paper bags or another container you may think of. Don’t limit yourself and have that very creative goody bags that your child’s guests will really appreciate and remember.
Why giving thank you notes are important?
A gift no matter how small or big it always has that effort done by the giver so appreciating them is important. It is also a way to teach your child the value of gratitude. For guests who don’t have any gift, still, give thanks as their presence should be appreciated as well.
