How to Throw the Perfect Kids’ Party
Read on to find out step-by-step hacks to a perfect kids’ party. Luckily these steps will make planning a birthday party for your kid fun and easy.
Choose a theme
Start by choosing a theme for your kid’s birthday party, something that is unique and what your child likes. This could be related to toys, favourite places or characters they are fond of. You can easily find decorations related to themes online. Get creative and brainstorm some ideas to make this party unique.
Here are some ideas which you can consider;
- Favourite cartoon characters
- Princess theme
Narrow down the guest list
After choosing the theme, determine who you want to invite and start sending the invitation in advance. This can be difficult, but you can work on it based on your budget and how many kids can come perfectly within that.
Here are some things which you can consider while determining the guest list;
- How many guests can fit under the budget?
- Do you want to throw a big or a small party?
- Do you want to mix family and friends?
- Do you need a venue, or will your house be able to accommodate it?
Here is how you can determine the kind of invitations to send;
- Do you want to store-bought? – you will have to find something that goes with the theme of your party.
- Get custom-made – you can get it designed according to your preference of theme, colour, size and quality.
- DIY – you can design your invitations; however, this can be time-consuming.
Decide the location
If you feel your house won’t have enough space for hosting a party, you have to choose a venue. A home party can save money. However, you will be busy hosting and arranging things for the party. Party venues include activities, food, photography and other facilities that make the hosting part less stressful.
Here are things to consider while deciding venue;
- Does your budget allow you to look for a venue other than your house?
- Do you want private venues or public, as the price varies depending on the location?
- Does the venue handle the number of guests you are inviting?
- What facilities does the venue offer?
Choose food menu
If you are planning a party at home, make sure to order food in advance on that day. Choose food items that people of all ages can enjoy. Do not forget to include quick munchies. Add desserts such as cupcakes, doughnuts and candies to add a sweet note to the party.
Whether you choose to celebrate your birthday at home or outside, do not forget about games and entertainment. You can add a variety of acts such as magicians, impersonators, or sound connection live bands to keep your guests entertained.
Make sure all the entertainment is designed so that everyone of all age groups enjoys it; you can also book an entertainer to entertain your guest!
Do not forget to make a checklist
The checklist helps ensure that you do not forget anything at the last moment. Here is the list of things that should be on your inventory;
- Name of the guest
- Snacks and food decided
- List of decor that needs to be put on
- Games and entertainment
