Preparing for a kid's birthday party should take about a month's worth in order to ensure that everything goes smoothly. There are certain things that may need to be prepared a good three to four weeks before the actual party. An example would be renting a venue or preparing the menu for the party as well as the program. The couple or so days before the actual party should be reserved for trying to double check things. All the other preparation should be done prior to it.
Two Days Before The Party
Since most of the things have already been well taken cared of, checking out the smaller tasks would be foremost in the tasks at hand two days prior to the birthday party. One of the important small ones include checking for things such as camera and batteries. Surely no parent would want go through any kid's birthday party without a good quality camera to capture those memorable moments. Checking the camera condition as well as the batteries may be a small matter for some. But it is something that should not be left out in any birthday party preparation.
Confirmation for rented equipment should also be done two days before the party. The reason for this is to make the schedule and the time clear with the rented equipment owner just to make sure that the plans are well understood on both sides. It might also be a good addition to prepare additional garbage bags as well as plastic wrap that will always come in handy at any birthday party.
A Day Before The Party
So, the party is just a day away and the parents should now be making only the final preparations. Make sure that the bathrooms are made clean and sanitary. Possible outdoor playing areas should be cleaned and then cleared of any hazards. Parents can then do some last-minute touch ups to the decorations.
