Blow your kid away this year with a birthday party to remember! This is our list of the ten things you can do to make sure that you throw a party everyone will be envious of.
1. Give ‘em What They Want
Start by making sure you know what your child is really looking forward to for their birthday. You don’t have to over indulge them or be overly predictable. Just make sure that you include a theme or a gift that they have specifically mentioned.
2. Pick A Theme
A theme for a party brings everything together. There’s nothing memorable about a generic birthday party. You can choose something specific or general, it doesn’t matter. Once you have a theme, lots of new party ideas will pop out as you plan your event.
3. Have Great Invitations
Your party invitation is a physical reminder to everyone coming that this birthday party is something special. That is, of course, if your party invitations themselves are special. Spend some extra time here and do something creative.
4. Great Cake
The birthday cake has become an icon of a great birthday. It is the centerpoint of the entire party and is the one detail that everyone will notice. Whether you spend a lot of money or just do something unique, a great cake can make the party great!
5. Games, Games, Games
Children have much more energy to spend than adults do. Games are not only fun and memorable, but they can also assure that every kid has a positive outlet for their energy. Keep things fun and civil with lots of good clean fun games to play.
Your kid will be the star of the show. It goes a long way to give a little something special to all of their friends that come. The goodie bag is a quick and easy way to make everyone feel special.
7. Fun Music
It’s easy to forget to play music during your kid’s party. It doesn’t always come to mind as important. Take the time to put together a playlist of songs that are fun and easy to listen to.
8. Great Food
Keeping everyone’s tummy full will be part of keeping them happy. Make sure to have a party menu of popular foods.
9. Awesome Decorations
With a great theme in mind, half of the fun will be picking out the decorations. Can you make the cups look like the snowman from Frozen? How about streamers that look like vines in a jungle?
10. Happy Parents
Don’t forget the parents! Think of ways to make life easier for the adults who come. Every little thing you do will be more appreciated by the parents than even the big things that you do for their children.
Even if you only focus on a few of these things, your kids a are likely to have the best birthday party ever!
