Making a plan for a children’s birthday party

It’s never too early to start planning your child’s birthday party. It seems that most people begin thinking about what to do 4-6 weeks before the birthday, while some enjoy the luxury of planning up to 8 months in advance. The earlier you start to plan the more time you will have to arrange everything and the less stressed you will feel.

When everything is organised the more you can relax and enjoy the build up to the big day. For your convenience, I have included some great tools in this guide to help with your planning, your organising and with the party itself. The ‘Party Planning’ and ‘Action checklist’ will get you started as quickly and efficiently as possible. I have done most of the hard work for you. All you need to do is fill in the blanks. You will find all the tools at the end of this guide. By the time you have read your way through and got to them you will have a greater understanding of how to give your party the very best chance of success.

Why start planning so early? Why not leave everything until the last few weeks? It’s worth remembering that for some strange reason, when we plan to do something in life there is always something waiting around the corner to derail us. The more organised you are, and the more you have written down in the ‘Party Planning’ and ‘Action Checklists’ any distractions will be less of an issue. You’ll be able to quickly get back on track. Trust me, it’s never too early to start making plans. By doing so you will be planning for success, and be under far less pressure and stress.
