Your little one’s big day is coming up soon and you’re looking to make another special moment for them to remember. There are a lot of details involved and you might be getting overwhelmed dealing with all of them.
So how exactly are you supposed to pull any type of birthday celebration at this point? Well there are a few ways to prepare that we’ve mapped out for you. Keep reading to check out these seven tips throwing the perfect kids birthday party for your child.
1. Do Some Budgeting
Of course, you want to provide your child with the best experiences that you can. But, you have to consider what you’ll be able to afford and be realistic about setting a budget.
Before you buy any steamers or party hats, know how much money you can put to the side for the event. The earlier you make decisions on what size kids birthday party you want to throw, the sooner you can start saving and eliminate some of the financial pressure.
2. Plan a Menu
The type of food you serve is one of the most important decisions to make during planning. Since this is a kids birthday party, you don’t need to do anything to fancy. But you should have a family-friendly menu with sufficient options and enough to feed everyone.
Remember to ask other parents about any significant food allergies that their children may have.
3. Choose a Theme
Children are pretty easy to please most of the time. You can typically make them happy by giving them the things they love. In this case, it would be choosing a theme around one of your child’s interests, such as a character, cartoon show or video game.
Choosing a theme will help with picking out the perfect decorations that you know your kid will love.
4. Send Out Invites Early
There probably won’t be much of a party if no one shows up. Start creating your guest list as soon as possible. After you’ve figured out who’d you like to attend, create birthday invitations and send them out. You can get really creative with this step.
5. Find Entertainment
You don’t expect attendees at a kids birthday party to entertain themselves, right? Find some local talent that specializes in entertaining children. Try to hire relatable or universal entertainment, such as characters within the chosen theme, face painters or balloon artists.
6. Decide on Location
Now it’s time to figure out where you’ll actually have the event. If you have a large house, you may be able to host the kids birthday party there. Locating the perfect venue may take a little longer but will have its perks, such as holding more people and including amenities.
7. Include Activities
Although there will be entertainment, it’s always best to keep little ones engaged at a kids birthday party. Otherwise, things could get very chaotic. Make sure you have enough games and activities for children to make the entire time enjoyable.
