Create a backdrop

A great background is needed for the party table as it will anchor the rest of the decorations. Generally, it would be advisable to think this through and if possible set it up ahead of time then only plan everything else on the table around it. There are many items that can be used to create backdrops such as a canvas, fabric banners, paper pinwheels or vintage decorations. Be creative as possible with the designs.

Trade services with friends

Parties can be very tiring to plan, so it would be great to trade services with friends. For example, if you have a friend that is good at baking cakes or cookies, ask them if they are up for a trade with other services and possibly offer them a couple of suggestions too! Perhaps they have young kids and you can offer to watch over them if they are up for it. This will definitely help relieve a lot of stress up till the day of the party.

Plan activities and games

Children, in general, have a very short attention span, so it would be good to keep them from causing havoc with activities and games. Firstly, you want to introduce them to the theme. A photo booth is always a fun activity as they can be silly as possible with the props. It is also a good idea to plan a few outdoor games.
