ETA: I mean parties hosted outside of school, not things you take into the classroom.
We went to a birthday party (his first class party we've made it to) yesterday. Ds had a blast. I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to do ds's party so I have a few questions for you:
They had it at their home (the last two we were invited to were at other venues). Will you have your dc's party at home or at some other venue (where?)?
They didn't open gifts during the party. How did you handle this?
They had cupcakes instead of a cake. The kids loved it. Did you do a cake or cupcakes?
What did you do as treats or parting gifts? They did a Pez dispenser that was like the Cars party theme.
Did you have any kind of entertainment? Eg. Bounce house, activities.
Did you have just classmates or did you also have other friend's kids and family?
