If we open gifts during the party, and my child says “Thanks!” as he goes along, do I still need to send a written thank you?
First of all, the party is about the person being celebrated, so let your child decide whether he wants to open them at the party or later. And, sorry, but even if he does choose the former, written notes are still required. It’s a worthwhile exercise for all children.
So many kids have food allergies. I’m getting a little stressed worrying about pleasing everyone. What do I do?
Right on the invitation, note specifically everything you will be serving, then add, “If your child has an allergy to the above, please send along a brown-bag lunch or dessert.” If the invites have gone out already, email the parents.
