Slumber Parties

Planning a slumber party? If so, here’s some tips on ways to make it fun for the kids and easy on you. First of all, decide on the number of guests that will be manageable for you. If you have the time to do so, order your personalized invitations well in advance, around 6-8 weeks prior to the party. Then send them out 3-4 weeks before allowing enough time for guests to save the date.

Prepare yourself with lots of fun snacks, goodies and activities. Rent a video and have some popcorn handy as a fun late night activity. A week or two before the event, purchase a few of your child’s favorite snacks and decide on the menu. Finger foods such as tacos and pizza are always popular. You might also want to find out if any of your guests have any food allergies to take into consideration. This would also be a good time to purchase any decorations or favors for guests.

Lastly, give yourself time to get things in order, clean the house and relax a little before all the craziness begins!

Here are a few of our party invitations perfect for slumber parties.
