However, for a girl you can opt for Barbie, doll house or any other customised theme your kids love. You can craft invitations, return gifts, and decorations based on the theme. You can even order a theme cake.

You can either send in school or you can call personally and invite the guests. Take their confirmation so you can make the arrangements according to that.

Place – Decide where you want to throw a party. It could be a home or party venue. If your home is not sufficient enough to organize a grand party, you can book a banquet hall, a garden or kid friendly restaurants. Make sure to make proper arrangements for pick and drop of kids.

Menu- If you want to serve snacks or small meals, arrange the party food offerings simply. Familiar snacks like French fries, sandwich, pizza and juices will be good for the kids.
