Your Birthday Party Supply List

If you're throwing a 50th birthday bash, there are a lot of details and party supplies to remember. Coming up with a birthday party supply list for your big event is easy if you just remember these main items:

Guest List – For a large affair, you want to make sure you have the correct spelling of everyone's name, current address, and contact information.

Invitations, Stamps, and Envelopes – You can order invitations and have them printed or hire a designer to create them for you.

Catering List - Figure out what will be on the menu, from hors d'oeuvres to dessert and cake.

Decorations – Whether you're having a table buffet or occupying several tables, think about adding centerpieces. They can be elegant and simple or fun and festive.

Flatware, glasses, and more – Will you provide all the dining equipment or will the caterer provide them for you?

Favors – Have trinkets, chocolates, or engraved mementos to hand out to your guests.

Music – Have a selection of songs if you're not going to hire entertainment like a band or DJ.

Guest Book – Make sure you mark the event by having a guest book as part of your birthday party supply list. Have everyone sign in and write their well wishes.
