As you look at locations, inquire what's included in party packages - they can vary from just covering the fee to rent the venue or they can include everything, including paper products, decorations, and even cakes or favors. Another expense to add to the tab includes preparation - what will you be giving your child? Factor gifts into the party expenses, and don't forget invitations and thank-you notes for gifts. If you're looking to save on invitations - and the guests' parents are Internet-savvy - then consider sending out e-mail invitations. Sites like Evite offer this free, paperless service, and guests can RSVP via the site. If you'd like to send out paper invitations, then use one of the many templates available online and print your own to reduce those costs. Regardless of what you decide or how much you spend, consider your child's interests and make it memorable!
