The Basics of Any Good Party

We'll start with the four major things to consider, for any birthday party. Who will you invite? What will you serve and what kinds of things will you do at the party? Where can you throw it to host all your guests and play your fun games? And when can it happen? Once you have the who, what, where, and when of the party planning basics, then we can get to the Hello Kitty specifics of this birthday party plan!

The Who, The What, The Where, And The When

  • So, who will you invite? The number of party guests will impact what kinds of activities you can play/what you'll need to serve, where you can host, and when you can have your party. Think about what school friends, family friends, and family you want at this Hello Kitty birthday party. Are there people you know you want to be there who can't come on a certain weekend? This is why it's best to consider the invitations early on, as it will affect the rest of your party planning.
  • Next up, with that number of guests, what kinds of activities will you do, and what foods will you serve? Numbers will affect the games, and be sure to check in about allergies or dietary restrictions before planning the treats, and snacks section of your lovely birthday party.
  • Where will you host? Can you host it in a backyard? If it's not the season for outdoor parties, is there an indoor space available to you? Will you rent a playspace with room for snacks and cake? Maybe you just need a bigger space generally to accommodate the number of kids.
  • And finally, consider when you will host this party. When can your important guests make it? What day does the birthday actually fall on? If it's a weekday, can the party happen on a weekend either before, or after? These are all important things to keep in mind as you start your party planning.
