Wait.....Don't Start Shopping Yet!

4 Things You Need to Know Before You Start Shopping

  • 1. Budget
  • 2. Party theme
  • 3. Birthday Party Location
  • 4. Number of Guests

When confirming the number of guests remember to include adults invited. Remember that parents of little ones usually stay so count them as well. Confirm the location of your party as this will affect what's on your shopping list. (Example: If you're having a bowling party you don't need a yard sign or scene setter). This will eliminate buying things you might not need and keep more of your hard earned money in your wallet. Print our free birthday party supply list and you are ready to start.
