Every child’s birthday party starts with the invitations. When planning the party, obviously the first thing you need to do is decide how many guests will be attending - and often the age of your child determines the number.
WHEN TO SEND OUT INVITATIONS
While there’s no real rule as to when you should send your invitations, you’ll need to make sure that the date you’ve chosen for the party doesn’t potentially conflict with other events that could be happening around this time. For example, school holidays often mean that many of your child’s friends are away, or sporting events might prevent friends from attending. A reasonable amount of time to send out invites would be 4 weeks. Any further away from the party date runs the risk people forgetting. Any closer, and you may find that people have already made other plans.dy made other plans.
