My daughter's 5th birthday party is this weekend at a local sports/arcade complex. We are doing pizza and cupcakes upstairs and have our tables for a quick 2-hour time block (3-5pm). However, I didn't plan any activities because...I don't know, I've never done this before!

Do I need to buy arcade cards for all the kids so they can play arcade games? Is that something you would expect, as a parent? Should I have the food ready and waiting right away, or an hour into the party?

I guess in my head I thought people would show up, play games for an hour, then everyone would come to the table for pizza and cake. Is that silly?

Ugh, I've never done this and I'm never throwing a big party again.
