Now that I am a grandmother, I decided to buy this book for my daughter and my daughter-in-law. There is a party theme for almost any child's interest and each party has about 4 pages of helpful ideas. First, there is a design for the invitation so that you can make the invitation with your child, then they give ideas on games to play that go with the theme of the party, and finally a party menu complete with recipes that are easy, colorful and delicious. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to have old-fashioned parties for children ages 2-14 and create special memories that will last a lifetime!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best birthdays, ever! October 16, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have had this book for years and was able to give my daughter the best and most creative birthday parties I could imagine. I just ordered this book for a friend with two small children as she was searching for fun and economic ideas for their celebrations. My daughter had 6 parties; the cheerleader party was one of my favorites, and the bicycle birthday with neighborhood parade is still talked about 15 years later! Buy this book and make great memories!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for all ages August 4, 2000
Format:Paperback
I used this book, and it's follow up (The Penny Whistle Birthday Party Book) to plan my son's 3rd birthday party. Both books are excellant...and you just need one of them. They both start with a good overview of the party segments: arrivals, active games, wind-down/food, leaving. They also give good time lines for organizing and purchasing things (best to start 6 weeks in advance, but can be condensed to two if you put it off).
All of the chapters have a different "theme", and include: how to make a cool invitation, decorations, fun party favors, thematic foods to serve, thematic games to play
What I liked most was that they have a special section on parties for kids 4 and under...how they differ from older children. They also encourage you to take their party plans and adapt them for your own situation.
My case: my son wanted a bug theme. There is not bug-theme party in either book. I took the basic principles for parties for toddlers, adapted games from some of the other parties (there is a dinosaur party, a teddy bear party) and added some things of my own invention.
I read several of their party themes just to get my imagination rolling. I enjoyed them all thoroughly.
In a nutshell: Easy to read, very well organized, the only book you need to plan children's parties!
