Birthdays are unforgettable memories for a child. They cherish their birthday. They feel special on their birthday and there is no better way to celebrate it then to throw a party!

Planning parties are never easy. They can be the most stressful thing for parents. Well we have great news for you! We have created a birthday party guide for you to follow to help you plan a perfect party for the birthday child. Here’s how to plan a birthday party.

1. Pick the number of guests for the party first:
