First Step towards Party Planning
Prepare a checklist of all the things you have to do
Planning a birthday party is a tiring and time taking task. It needs a lot of patience, expertise and time. You have to start by doing first things first. Preparing a checklist for all things to be attended and all tasks to be done will help a lot in organizing your jumbled thoughts. Keep a note pad at hand to write different ideas that occur to you randomly. Also, make sure you have different party planning ideas well searched and the best ones written down on your note pad. This must be done at least a month before the actual party date. It gives you enough time to finalize what you have to do and get it done. Party planning books always come in handy as they inspire you to come up with your own ideas after going through some of theirs. An ideal birthday party planning checklist can be printed out from here.
You can consider these two books on party planning. They are the best party planning books with the best ideas ever.
Prepare Your Guest list and Send out Party Invitations
As I Said... First Things First!
Prepare a guest list and list down the names of every one you want to invite. Get the kids to write down the names of all the friends they want to invite over. Knowing the number of guests you will be entertaining is important for party co-ordination and preparations.
Once you have decided the number of people who will be coming, choose your invitation cards. Invitation cards should be based on the theme of the party. In this case, Zebra Print Party Invitations will be considered.
Making out invitations at home will be fun too. All you need is a Zebra Stripped Sheet and pink or white cardboard. You can cut out the zebra stripped sheet in different funky shapes and paste it on the cardboard cuttings. Borders can be made out of it or you can cover half of the cardboard with printed sheet and write on the other half.
Printable invitation cards can also be found online. Print out personalized Zebra Print Invitation cards for ease.
Or, you can buy some Amazing Zebra Stripped Invitation cards from market. They are also available in online stores where you can order your desired card and have it delivered at your doorstep.
Note: Invitations should be sent out at least 3 weeks before party date to give you a lead time for preparations. RSVP from guests will also let you know the number of people coming to the party.
Get Some Cool Zebra Print Tableware!
Simple Zebra Or Pink Zebra?
Make sure you purchase your zebra print partyware 2 to 3 weeks before the party date. Keep your guest list in mind as the number of people you will be entertaining will be important in buying your party supplies. Now, there are two themes to choose from. For a girly theme you can pick pink zebra stripped tableware or you can go for simple zebra stripping set on contrasting tablecover.
Featured below are some party packs you can find on Amazon.
The Zebra Party Pack for 16 includes Zebra print cups, Plates, Napkins, Forks, Spoons, Knives for 16 people and a Zebra Print Table cover. Or you can buy the standard Zebra Print Party Pack.

To make your party table look stylish, you can spread some Zebra Confetti on it. Use a Pink or Red contrast with your Zebra table cover to give it a stylish look. Simple pink or red table cover set with zebra themed table mats or set will look gorgeous. You can set in the middle of your table a Zebra Print centrepiece also.
