The rule of thumb for children’s birthday parties is to limit the number of guests to your child’s age plus one, so a 7-year-old would invite 8 friends, for example. But you know your child best. If she’s a social butterfly, stretching the number by two or three or four may be a good fit for her. Your introvert might be overwhelmed by the standard number of party pals. The most important goal of the party is for the guest of honor to enjoy her big day!
If it’s a party, there has to be food! Work from your budget out. The girls aren’t coming to scrutinize the menu, but they will be looking for food that telegraphs, “Birthday!” (Remember to have safe options available for girls on restricted diets.) Go traditional with a decorated cake, or get a little adventurous and set up a food station. The girls can add decorations to cupcakes, toppings to ice cream cones or sundaes, or assemble savory treats like nachos or trail mix. Do you have space to set up a food station? Will you need to protect surfaces like carpet and upholstery? Is a food station in your party future?
Party favor treat bags are traditional but there are other options, too. Give each girl a copy of a favorite paperback book or a small stuffed animal. Decorate t-shirts, socks, or tote bags, or braid friendship bracelets as a party activity and take-home favor combined. If you go for a bag of goodies, try letting the girls decorate plain paper bags and add favors from a favor bar.
A houseful – or yardful, or parkful – of girls is a great start to a good time. Choose as many do-ahead ideas for your party as possible, and you can enjoy it, too!
