Games give life to your party by adding charm. A party becomes successful only when there is laughter and singing and dancing. Games make sure of this. Some of the items you may need are Pinatas, prizes, awards and trophies. These need not be expensive, but simple and elegant. And having ‘Merry Christmas’ written on them goes a long way.
Needless to say, food plays an important role in a Christmas party. Some people may take part in games and dance and some may not. But everyone in the end likes a piece of cake. A Christmas party is not complete without cakes, ice cream, drinks and snacks. So always make sure your cake gets delivered on time. Take some effort to decide on the design of the cake. Also make sure everyone gets sufficient quantity of drinks and snacks.
Some of the supplies may not contribute directly to the party, but they are essential, nonetheless. Some of them are table and chairs, cake candles and matches, cake knife, cameras and batteries, name badges and the right type of music.
Having these party supplies nearby avoids a lot of problems. What if your party was a great success, but you didn’t have your cameras and mobile phones to take the pictures? Hence little things matter a lot. And searching for matches and knives during the cake-cutting ceremony may not look good.
Birthday parties are usually thrown on the same day, but since this is a tea party you can make an exception. The reason being that tea parties are generally held either in the mornings around ten am, or in the late afternoons from 2 pm onwards. And if the parents of the kids you are inviting to the party are not available to drop/pick them from the party then you may need to reschedule. So think beforehand, and make sure you call up everyone and ask if they are available before you choose a day and time for the party.
