Five Sure-fire Tips to Plan a Foolproof Kid’s Birthday Party
Remember when your parents threw a memorable birthday party for you? It was simply one of the best moments of our childhood life. You look forward to it every year. Now that we’ve become parents, we must let our child or children experience what a great birthday party is.
As a parent, organising your child’s birthday party can be daunting. Thus, proper planning is important to smoothly put everything together before and during the celebration.
Birthday parties can be perfect in their own way, as long as it’s properly planned and organised. So, here are some of the best tips we’ve gathered from event planners to help you pull off a foolproof birthday party for your child.
Choose a nice venue
If you want to take the party out of your home, you need to consider a nice venue. There are different kids birthday party venues to choose from. They are everywhere in cities. Most of these venues are function rooms in fast-food restaurants, pizza parlours, resorts, hotels, clubs, and convention centres. But you must find a location that can accommodate and is highly accessible to everyone you invited. Aside from a spacious and accessible, make sure it has lights, sounds, staff, and other necessary equipment.
Choose a nice theme
Since it’s a kid’s party, you must choose a theme relevant to your child’s interests like a favourite cartoon or superhero. Themes make the party even more special. It will also give you more cool ideas to make the party even more fun and exciting. It also helps you organise the party better on food preparation, parlour games, and decoration.
Create a menu
Kids parties do not necessarily require you to serve fancy food since most of the guests are kids, although parents will accompany them. So, it’s best to keep your menu basic, preferably something kids enjoy. Throw in the usual burgers, hotdogs, pizzas, and tacos that kids love. You can hire an ice cream truck or bake cupcakes for more options on your menu.
For the adults, you can get a bit fancy by grilling or cooking something delicious. Or perhaps, if you have enough budget, you can hire a catering service to take care of the food.
Formulate a back-up plan
There are unforeseen things that might affect or worse ruin your child’s birthday party. So, it’s essential to have a back-up plan. For example, if you’re planning to hold the party in your backyard, you must have a back-up plan to help you move the party inside your home if it rains unexpectedly. Not having a back-up plan is a perfect recipe to ruin your child’s birthday party.
Find an exclusive venue
Most of kids birthday party venues offer exclusivity to provide your family and guests privacy. However, not everyone can offer it. Most venues expand their spaces to accommodate more clients and hold more affairs simultaneously. It’s a great sight to see on the business side, but this can result in an uncomfortable experience on the client’s perspective. So, find an exclusive venue dedicated to a single client for that date. It will give everyone in your party to enjoy the venue’s amenities and space available free from distraction and noise.
Birthdays are an important occasion that must be celebrated every year. It’s also a great way for your child and your family to interact with friends and relatives.
Planning a foolproof birthday party for your child might be daunting, but it’s completely scalable. With these tips, you’re more equipped and confident to prepare a fun and memorable party ahead of time.
