Timing is Important: Plan the party for a time of day that doesn't normally compete with your child or your guests
KISS- Keep it Simple, Sweetie! Plan a few simple activities, but keep the agenda flexible. Start the party with unstructured play time.
Keep the guest list short. Avoid inviting too many at once. Toddler parties should include an invitation to the child and their parent, with an expectation that each toddler's parent will be attending too.
Remember siblings in your party plan. Be careful to consider the feelings of your guests' brothers or sisters if they are close in age.
Open the presents last. Open the presents last, and have a small, inexpensive wrapped present or gift for each guest to give a the end of the party.
