Prepare for the Party
8 Weeks Prior
- Pick your date and time. Be sure all travelling- or nearby- relatives save-the-date!
- Write out your guest list; keep a column for RSVP and one for gift information, so the thank you process goes smoothly!
- Purchase or make invitations and thank you cards; send or hand out the invites!
2-4 Weeks Prior
- Purchase plates, napkins, cups, utensils, decorations and candles.
- Plan your activities and assign adult volunteers to help at each stop: Thomas' Ticket to Ride or the Thomas Frame!
- Purchase all your craft supplies for planned activities.
- Plan your food and drink menu and make a shopping list. Remember to be allergy-aware!
1 Week Prior
- Make your goody bags!
- Shop for non-perishable foods, including hand wipes which is a simpler solution than sending a group of kids to the sink before cake time!
- Set tables and Activity Stations with all required supplies.
- Make sure menu is prepared & food orders are placed if you are having the party during mealtime.
- Pick up or inflate Thomas balloons.
- Pick-up or make cake (Tip: Put a book of matches near the cake knife/server).
- When sending thank you notes, if your child cannot write his own name, be sure to have him draw a picture or do a scribble - it personalises the card and instils in your child the importance of gracious gift receiving!

Photographs are a special way to remember events. What better activity at a Thomas party than a Thomas photo frame? Photos of the birthday boy with his friends are a wonderful and personal addition to a thank you note...or rather, a TANK YOU note!
