Tips for a Great Kids Birthday PartyOct 4, 2020
Kids birthday parties don’t have to be stressful. If you want to save money and do it all yourself, a home party is for you. Many of us have busy lives and aren’t quite up to having a group of kids wreaking havoc at the house.
Venues also usually offer several different party packages. Ask lots of questions and give the venue all the information you can about what you are looking for. The booking agent can then match you with the package that best suits your budget and the age and interests of the birthday child. Birthday party venues have tons of experience and can offer lots of tips and advice to make your child’s birthday fun for everyone.
Once you’ve decided on a date, be sure to pick a time that works for your child. You also want to be clear on your invitations the start and end time. If the party occurs over a mealtime, you’ll want to have food for the group. Kids tend not to eat a lot at parties, but they will certainly want cake or cupcakes! If the party is in the middle of the afternoon, why not save a little money and not offer pizza or hot dogs. You’ll want to make sure there are drinks offered because all of that running around makes kids thirsty.
Consider narrowing the invitation list to only the best friends and close family of the birthday child. While it sounds nice to include all your child’s friends and acquaintances, having too large a group can distract from the focus on the birthday child if you are busy “wrangling” the group the whole time.
A little advanced planning and foresight go a long way in assuring you host a fun and memorable birthday party for your child.
