Planning a birthday party can be rather alarming to even the well-organised parents, because there are a surprising amount of details that need to be taken care of. Therefore, some tips have been gathered to smoothen your party planning activities.
First of all, you will need to confirm on the type of party you wish to conduct. Several questions had to be asked before the decision is made, for instance, will the party be held at home or at a rented area? How many guests will be invited? What is the budget of the birthday party? What will the party theme be? And how long will is the duration of the party.
If you have a small house it is better to opt for a rented area to hold the birthday party. However, if your yard is big enough for the setting up of games and eatery booth, feel free to have it at your home compound. But if the party was planned to be outdoors, opt for a backup plan just in case it rains.
The number of guests has to be identified so that you can prepare the menu for the party. For a child’s birthday, parents will usually tag along as well to keep an eye on their kids, so do keep that in mind while drawing out your guest list.
The budget allocated in organising a birthday party had to be calculated beforehand. If you were to bring the party to any fast food chain or skating rinks, a small amount of fees are needed for each child. After so, the theme of the party has to be determine. During this stage, get your child involve as he/she knows what he/she likes. For younger child, decide on something simple, for instance a blue colour theme for a baby boy, and make the cakes and utensil blue as to match the theme of the party. Also, decorate the place with blue balloons and blue decorative. Older child can have a more complex theme to suits his/her likings.
If you are planning a party for pre-school children, duration of 90 minutes is usually sufficient. Party should be conducted in the morning and before nap time. However, if the child is older, a longer duration should be estimated.
Hence, when all is in place, you can sit back and watch your child having the time of his/her life. Also, remember to buy him/her a birthday present to add on to the happiness of your child because it is his/her birthday after all.
