After you have determined all of the party basics using our Party Planning Guide finalize the theme for optimum fun for your child and all of their guests. Lastly, use our handy Perfect Party Checklist to be sure you don’t miss anything. It'll also help keep track of guests, supplies, activities, and even your agenda at the party.

The best way to choose a theme for your child's birthday party is to consider all of your child's favorite activities, colors, tv shows, characters, games and foods. It's good to get the birthday boy or girl's input, but FIRST come up with 2 or 3 options that you'd like to take on, THEN let your child pick between a few choices. Also consider the ages and genders of the guests, and where you plan to have the party.

THE INVITATIONS!! The invitations you and your child select for the party should set the tone for the party. The theme, the colors, the overall feel of your exciting big day should be abundantly clear in the perfect invitation. All of Amy's Card Creations' custom invitations are created from scratch per order, so there's an infinite amount of customization that can be done to best suit your individual needs. That being said….you'll likely find that they're so cute and creative already, that little needs to be done other than to personalize them for you!
