In Beijing, we all need a bit a guidance when it comes to kid’s parties, especially if you plan one on your own. I have searched high and low for a party store, where I could find all the kid party essentials. But no luck, so my advice is to start early with the planning. Planning is everything, so get set on a theme as soon as possible. Try to look around each time you go shopping to see if something you need pops up. I had a unicorn themed party, and I kid you not I found Capri Sun juice boxes with a unicorn on them! Mommy score! But if all else fails you will always have the wonderful world of taobao and baopals at your fingertips. For ideas go check out my favorite housewife Martha Stewart.
