Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Ask your son what kind of theme he might like. My son has had baseball, Cars, and Toy Story themed parties, and next year will probably be a superhero of some sort (Superman, Avengers, Ninja Turtles, etc. are all themes he's asked for). Figuring out the theme will allow you to figure out what kind of activities and cake to have. It will also dictate what decorations you use.As far as food goes, just do appetizer type foods. I always have a fruit salad and a vegetable tray (the kids at my parties eat more of those than you'd think), some chips and dips, maybe some pigs in a blanket (I use a recipe food the food network, they're better than you might expect), antipasto sticks, etc. But really, food isn't a big deal unless the party coincides with meal time. If it's in the afternoon, all you need are snacks and drinks, plus cake. People won't eat as much as you'd expect.
