Being a parent is probably one of the greatest joys in life and seeing our children happy is priceless. Birthdays only come once a year so why not put in the extra time to plan and throw a birthday party to remember! Whether you have 10 guests, or 100 guests pre-planning your child’s birthday party will help you stay organized which will also minimize party stress. Here are some helpful tips to planning your child’s birthday party:
You first must decide where you want to celebrate your child’s birthday party. You need to take into consideration how many people are on your guest list before deciding the location. If it is just a few people, then having it at your home would be ideal, but if you have several people coming or if you live in an apartment then throwing your child’s party at a local park would make more sense. If you prefer a large indoor space, then renting a hall for a few hours would also be a great option. Whether it’s your backyard, at a park, or at a rented hall make sure you have enough tables and chairs so your guests can enjoy the party comfortably.
- Birthday Theme
Depending on what your son or daughter likes having a specific theme will make their birthday party more memorable. If your son likes firefighters, then throw a firetruck theme. If your little girl simply adores everything princess then go all out and throw the most precious princess party ever! If you have a professional athlete in the making, then why not throw a sports themed birthday party? Your child will appreciate that you created a birthday party based on his or her likes and interest.
- Fun and Activities
Unlike an adult’s birthday party, children need fun and activities. Young children and teens need something to distract them and keep them from being bored. If you are a parent, I’m sure your child has complained about being bored and the last thing you want to happen at a child’s birthday party is boredom! This is where the importance of bounce houses, water slides, and event games come in. For the older kids, teens, and adults’ obstacle courses and interactive games will have everyone in the mood for some friendly competition. Depending on your budget renting a few inflatables or games would turn your child’s birthday from ordinary to extraordinary!
A party isn’t a party without food and you can’t throw a child’s birthday party without fluffy cotton candy, fresh buttery popcorn, or sweet cold snow cone’s perfect for Florida weather. Imagine your child’s and guests’ reaction seeing all three party favorites at the birthday party? They will be so excited and happy that they get to eat these treats in between having fun on an inflatable or game! Your guests will be so impressed that your child’s birthday party will be talked about for days. Remember it’s all about having fun and creating memories! ☺
