If you're planning a children's birthday party, you're probably making a list of items you don't want to do without on the day of the event. Some kids birthday party supplies are not only expected, they'll make your life easier. We've put together a list of must have kids birthday party supplies to help with your planning.
Paper plates, cups, and utensils – Unless you're planning a formal affair or really enjoy doing the dishes, disposable plates and utensils are convenient and also add to the party's theme.
Favors – Don't let your guests go home empty-handed. At children's parties, favors are an excellent way of thanking even your youngest guests for coming.
Decorations – You don't have to go overboard with streamers and balloons, but do set the festive mood with some sort of decorations.
Disposable plastic containers – When the party is over, send your guest home with the leftover food or pack some in the fridge for yourself.
Cleaning supplies and trash bags – It's not glamorous, but it's a necessary part of party throwing. Between the cake, food, and lots of little ones running around, you're bound to have a mess or two. To make sure it's temporary and not permanent, have your cleaning supplies and trash bags on hand to pick up the spills.
