It is that time of year again. Your child's birthday is just around the corner. There is so much to do to get ready for the party. Planning a child's birthday party is necessary. It can be fun, exciting and sometimes busy. When planning a child's birthday party, there are many important details to remember:
First，you should decide on a theme. It is very important to plan a successful party. Without a theme there would be no party to plan. If the child is old enough，he can choose what theme he wants to have. He can also choose invitations, decorations, cake design，and even games.
Next it is time to decide on a date，a place, and the time to have the party. Most people have the child's party on the weekend for convenience(方便)of the parents' schedule(日程安排).When you have already decided on a date and time, you need to choose a place to have the party. It should be a place your child will enjoy, such as a favorite park，a nice restaurant or your own home.
Another important detail to keep in mind is the guest list. Always be sure to only invite people that your child knows and likes. Let the child help you write out the guest list. This helps avoid(避免) unwanted guests.
