Set out every thing that is needed for the party in a single allocated area. Things such as game and activity materials should be arranged in an organized manner to make them easier to locate and use during the party proper. If flowers are needed, the floral arrangements can be made and ordered a day prior to the party. If the party involves having a caterer, confirmation of the schedule should also be made to clear things up.
Hours Before Party
The early hours prior to the party can be made by giving the checklist another run. After that, the next things to prepare would be keeping everything well organized and confirmed. It is usually just several hours before the party that ordered balloons, cake and ice for the birthday party can be picked up. Considering that these are easily perishable goods make it a wise idea to get them on the day of the party itself.
If the setting in on the outdoors, decorations for the party are usually made also hours before on the day of the kid's birthday party. The party area should be set up as well as the other allocated activity areas such as the place where the kids would be playing their games. If there are pets in the house, it would also be a good idea to have them well secured in a safe area to avoid possible pet-induced confusion and chaos later on.
If there is time left, a second and final look at the checklist would allow parents to make sure that everything is ok. The last thing to do prior to the kid's birthday party is to wear a smile and enjoy the festivities.
