Children of all ages love to have a birthday party. All children anxiously wait for their day. For parents, planning a birthday party is a challenge. This is because kids are picky and want everything done their way. You can’t really argue with them because, at the end of the day, you have to organize a party which is enjoyed by children.
While many parents want to keep the party simple and believe that a large-scale celebration is not worth it, children often want their birthday celebrations to be an event to remember. You can throw your child an awesome birthday party without drilling holes in your pocket. For the venue, you can choose Crystal Ballroom and we can help you organize a party that is fun and entertaining and doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg.
What follows are the tried-and-tested tips that can help you organize a terrific birthday party for your child.
Almost all events are now theme-based. The theme is inspired by the latest trends or TV shows or movies. Children like superheroes and Disney princesses, and they choose a theme that best describes their interests. With children between ages three and five, you can choose whatever theme you like. Until this age, children don’t have any major preferences (while some might be picky). When you are deciding on a theme for a child under the six to eight age bracket, ask him/her what he/she prefers. If there is a particular character that your child likes or a show he/she loves, then plan the party accordingly. Once a theme is finalized, planning the rest of the event is a piece of cake.
The most important part of celebrations is cutting the cake. In the past, children were happy to cut a rectangular sheet cake with icing. But today, they are not too interested in keeping things simple. Now, everything at the party – from decor to food items – have to be the reflection of your children’s interests. Therefore, you have to pay more attention when it comes to selecting the right cake. You can choose the flavor that your child and his/her friends love the most. Order a cake whose design is related to the party’s theme. For example, if your child loves Batman, order a cake that has a Batman logo on it.
Printing invitations on papers is so 90s. Even if you decide to craft invitation letters by yourself, your hard work is going to go down the drain. This is the age of the internet. Send an e-invite to your guests and save the stationery cost.
Children do not like to sit and chat with each other. They keep themselves busy in activities. All that running around can be tiring for them. Choose a time slot when children are the most active. Normally, anytime between 3pm and 5pm will go well with children. Keep the party two to two-and-a-half-hour long.
To thank your guests for coming to the party, give them a beautiful goody bag. You can make ‘Thank you’ cards at home and add some baked cookies in the bags. Get an instant camera and click a picture of the guests with your child. Give the picture to the guest so that they can keep it with them for as long as they want.
