Children's birthday party etiquette: The invitees

For parents of younger children, there may be a lot more to planning a birthday party than just finding a cake and ordering the pizza.

There is plenty to consider before and after the birthday party celebration takes place. For instance, how many children should you invite?

While it's easy to welcome all of your child's friends with open arms, the economy may make this tough for some families to handle.

One general rule of thumb is to invite the same amount of your child's age plus one. So a ninth birthday party would have 10 people. If you do opt for a larger party, try to invite groups, especially for younger children such as an entire class or soccer team. This may make things easier and ensure no one gets left out.

At the end of the party, have the birthday child hand out goodie bags to the guest, which may also remind them to send out thank-you notes later. These cards do not have to be anything too fancy. For younger children, a simple drawing and the words "thank you" can suffice.
