Party Planning Essentials

  1. Set a Budget: Before you start shopping for party supplies, determine how much you’re willing to spend. This will help you prioritize the most important elements and avoid overspending.
  2. Choose a Date and Time: Weekends are usually the most convenient for guests, but consider your child’s schedule and preferences. For younger kids, a mid-morning or early afternoon party is ideal.
  3. Create a Guest List: Include your child in this process to ensure their closest friends are invited. Keep in mind the size of your venue when deciding on the number of guests.
  4. Send Invitations: Choose invitations with a Snoopy design or create your own. Include all the essential information: date, time, location, RSVP details, and whether costumes are encouraged.

Transforming Your Space: Snoopy Party Decor

  • Colors: Stick to a red, white, and black color scheme, with touches of yellow and blue.
  • Balloons: Fill the space with Snoopy-shaped balloons, or create a balloon archway featuring the Peanuts gang.
  • Tableware: Use plates, cups, and napkins with Snoopy and Woodstock designs.
  • Backdrops: Hang a Snoopy-themed backdrop behind the main party area for photos.
  • Centerpieces: Use plush Snoopy toys, mini doghouses, or red food bowls filled with snacks as centerpieces.
