How to Throw the Best Children’s Birthday Party

Many of people’s happiest childhood memories revolve around birthdays. A child’s birthday party is probably one of the first things they get to do where everything they want is hopefully provided for. Things like a theme, cakes, party games, their friends, silly dancing and if they are lucky, lots of presents. Despite this being something that pretty much everyone goes through, it can be hard to remember as a child what you wanted. So, if you are feeling stressed about organizing a children’s birthday party then here is a little bit of advice for you. 

  • Budget

The first thing you want to do is think about your budget. This will dictate many of your decisions and can help you rule out the unfeasible additions to your child’s wish list. The worst thing you can do to a child is to say that you are going to deliver something and then let them down. What you will start to notice is that small expenses really do start to build up the cost. So, make a budget and stick to it. Maybe you can manage the decorations by hand making them or look at discount backyard bounce houses rather than brand new ones. This will help you channel your money into the areas that need it.

  • Finding the right theme

This is a tough one. Especially if you are not aware of all of the latest trends in your child’s world. It also needs to be accessible to all of your guests. The classics of pirates and princesses may not be what your child wants. The best thing to do is to speak with your child and ask them what they want. Then you can have a better idea of what they are expecting and how you can deliver it to them. It will also help you pick out decorations and maybe decide on costumes. 

  • Guest numbers

Choosing how many people you are inviting is important. If you are having it at your home, you need to think about how many people you can comfortably get in there. Be aware of the toilets and how many children you are going to have running around. You should also consider if you are going to have parents stay or go. They are maybe thankful to have the day off, but it adds a lot of stress to your day.

  • Food

One of the most important parts of any party, no matter who it is for. For a children’s party, you need to make sure you have a good mix of savory and sweet. Having staples that everyone will be familiar with is essential. Think of things like pizza and chicken nuggets. You don’t want anyone upset because they can’t eat anything or hate everything you have provided. 


Birthdays may not seem important to you anymore, but they certainly are to your child. Make sure that you involve them in the planning of their birthday party. This will help you get everything right on the day and make a lasting memory.
