Planning a kids’ party isn’t for the faint of heart, even though the end results (adorable cake-face photos! happy wee ones!) are always worth it.
They’ve evolved since then, with adorable invitations, and even the option to raise money or supplies for your child’s own own school which is not only wonderful, it takes the edge off having to sell a gazillion candy bars for fundraising.
There’s even a printable ECHOage Tracker to help you keep track of guests, cell phone numbers, and allergy information. Plus the service will email you the day before the party to remind you to do things like charge your camera’s batteries. Neat.
It really does take away that awkwardness of asking for charitable
donations, which I know is polarizing in some circles. The one thing you may have to get used to, is the idea of specifying gifts (which may actually be doing your guests a favor), and seeing the amount donated by your guests. This all may or may not be Emily Post approved; but it certainly does show that your heart is int he right place, and it’s teaching your kid a wonderful lesson early on.
