What you will need is a list of families with small children, lists of their food allergies and preferences, and some great food. Once you have that basic list together, you can begin.
Have the children help make the invitations, and the food. It’s always better that way. They enjoy it; and you get some really great quality time with your children. Have them come up with brilliant ideas for food and games. Help them make the decorations, food, and send out the invitations.
