Every kid loves to celebrate birthdays, especially when they’re the guest of honor and a center of everyone’s attention, candle blowing and gift getting. While it is always a precious and memorable experience for you and your child, planning and organizing a birthday party can be stressful. If you find yourself looking for advice on where and how to start, follow our tips.
Start with a research of party venues in your area and call them for precise pricing and availability for the day of your party. When you outlay a few general options, you’ll have an easier time comparing what suits your budget and theme better. If you have a general idea of how much you want to spend, take into account the amount you spent last year. Remember, you don’t have to go overboard to impress the parents, just make sure that the kids will have a blast.
Consider how many little guests your home can fit so that everyone has space to play and run around without any accidents. If your child is over five years old, parties away from home will be your best option, as younger kids might be confused by an unfamiliar setting. If you’re planning a large party like quinceañera, you’d need a spacious venue to fit all the guests, catering and entertainment.
It’s your child’s birthday, so let them pick a theme they want! Suggest some ideas to figure out what they get most excited about, be it a princesses, pirates or character-based theme. Depending on your kid’s age, the rule of thumb is to expect the party to last around 2-3 hours, so make sure to let the parents know when to pick up their kids. Then move onto the decorations, apparel, and invitations.
As for latter, you can offer your kid to create handmade invitations, it will keep them busy in an anticipation to celebrate. The invitations should be ready at least two weeks before the party so that guests can plan accordingly. Double check with the invitees a few days in advance, so that you or the party venue know exactly how many children to cater for.
Organizing a birthday party for your child doesn’t have to be stressful. With a little preparation and assistance from venues or entertainers, the party can be planned with the minimum of stress, whatever your budget.
