Its party time!

Well, its party time for everyone else; its probably super-stress time for you, the party planner. Theres so much to do: invitations, food, theme, decorations, setting, activities, party favors, thank-you notes...the list goes on.

This guide will take you through planning a party for a kid, a teenager, and an adult, as well as give you a heads-up in what to expect from each age group. This guide will also suggest some food, drink, and activity ideas to get every party startedand keep em rolling.

Youre giving a party for a specific person with their own preferences, so its best to tailor the theme, food, and atmosphere to that individuals personality.


Lily is super-duper close to completing her Ph.D. in English Literature from the University of Oxford. She also has a rather non-lucrative Master of Fine Arts in poetry.


Now on to the fun part: picking a theme. There are so many themed kits out there, from pirates to princesses to Pink Poodle in Paris, that you can be sure youll have all the necessary accoutrements to make your party tres chic. The invitations will set the tone, so be sure to make them as colorful and exciting as possible. Many websites offer free or inexpensive print-your-own invitationsyou just type or write in the date, time, and address. Other sites allow you to upload your own images onto high-quality cardstock that theyll print and send to you.

As for decor, you can go do-it-yourself or store-bought; whichever is easier. Lets say youre planning a Batman-themed party. Its easy to stencil and cut out the Batman symbol in different sizes using black and yellow construction paper, and you can blow up black, yellow, and white balloons to display around the room.

If your son or daughter (why not?) wants to dress up, there are tons of Batman costumes available. For party favors, you can tie each balloon to a Batman action figure that each kid can bring home with them. And theres a lot to be said for Batman cupcake toppers.
