Top 5 Tips
1. Set a date
To do this you will need to juggle the important elements. Try and get 3 possible dates from the venue (easy if it’s at home!). Then check with the key players (Grandma, Best Friend, Richard Pinner ETC)
2. Make a list
This may sound obvious, but there are a lot of little things that go in to a great party. None have to be hard work but they all do need to get done!
3. Set a theme
This doesn’t have to be onerous as “Party” can be the theme. But what ever you decide with your little one – Stick to it and it will speed up a lot of the other tasks.
4. Stick to Tea Time Favourites
Serve foods that never fail on a play date with a new friend. In this house it would be Fish Fingers, Pizza or Pasta with Pesto.
5. Don’t give them a chance to think
Children are wonderfully creative and will quickly organise themselves in play. This may look and feel like chaos at a party! The way to avoid this and maintain control is to fill their thoughts the whole time. Always have the next activity ready to go.
