Party Shopping List
Use the list below to help you keep track of items you may need for your child’s party. First check off the items you already have and the items you know you can borrow (note who you plan to borrow a particular item from). Then X out the items you don’t need for your particular party.
That leaves you with the items you plan to make or buy. These two categories are usually related, because you often need to buy supplies for items you make. Note where you plan to buy each item and when.
If you have a large party store in your neighborhood, stop there to see what they have that will work well with your party theme. Party supplies can be found at large discount stores (Target, Walmart, etc.), grocery stores, and on-line.
