Planning a memorable celebration can feel overwhelming when you're trying to decide on must-have supplies. Some typical party essentials include:
  • Food and drinks: Whether you offer a full meal or just snacks, make sure you have enough for all the party attendees.
  • Invitation and thank-you notes: Ensure guests know when and where to arrive and ensure that you can thank them for any gift after the party.
  • Party favors: Along with party favors, you'll need bags or boxes to put the favors in.
  • Partyware: Once you have a final headcount, you can go ahead and purchase supplies such as cake and dinner plates, cups, cutlery (forks, knives, and spoons), napkins, and tablecloths.
You'll also want to devote some time to decorating! Key decorations include:
  • Balloons.
  • Banner.
  • Centerpieces.
  • Confetti.
  • Party hats.
  • Streamers.
  • Wall decorations.

When you send out invitations for your child's party, you want to ensure the guests know the key details. Here's a checklist:
  • Name and age: Turning a year older is a big deal for kids, so mark the occasion. You'll have a nice memento for your child as well.
  • Date and time: Ensure guests (or their parents) know exactly when the party will take place. Set a time frame, such as 1-3pm, so that families can plan accordingly.
  • Location: Give an exact location and address, so guests show up in the right place.
  • RSVP details, deadline, and process: Make sure parents know when and how to RSVP, so you're not chasing after information while you're trying to plan the details of the party. Give an exact deadline so you'll have a headcount to plan orders for things like food. Two weeks before a party is typical.

Goody bags are a classic component of kids' parties. Get started by decorating a bag or small box with the party theme. Want to get creative? Decorate a reusable water bottle, then fill that with party favors for kids to enjoy.

Then, fill the container you choose with items that fit in with the party theme and keep the fun going long after the party ends. Some ideas include small art supplies, toys, necklaces or bracelets, and snacks. You can even make some of the items with the guest of honor to add a personal touch.

Balloons offer a vibrant, eye-catching way to decorate for any party. Since a few different types of balloons exist, you'll want to know about each kind of balloon so you can choose the best option for your situation. Latex balloons are that classic image you likely picture when you hear the word "balloon," while Mylar balloons, also known as foil balloons, offer a metallic look and longer float times. So, which type should you choose for your celebration?

If you'd like to have a balloon drop or design a balloon arch or columns as a party backdrop, latex balloons are a great choice. You can easily create balloon bouquets with latex balloons as well.

Because the foil material works well for shaping, Mylar balloons come in various shapes printed with popular images. You can find Mylar balloons in shapes such as characters, baby bottles, cakes, and more.
