The Dos and Don’ts for a Successful Kid’s Birthday Party
Your kid’s birthday is always a special occasion. It’s a momentous day for your child, marking another year passing. That’s why you should make sure that you celebrate it and make it a fun even for everyone involved.
Follow these dos and don’ts for a successful and fun kid’s birthday party:
- Do get a host
A host is a professional entertainer, so you won’t have to worry about if everyone is having a good time. They also make sure that everything is running smoothly so that you and your family can fully enjoy the party without interruption.
- Do get a caterer
Hiring caterers saves you time and often money too. Rather than spending the whole morning prepping the tables and cooking up the food, you can spend the day relaxing while you let the caterers do the work for you. Your only job is to make sure your birthday boy/girl is having a blast during his/her special day.
- Do talk to your birthday boy/girl
You can’t decide on a theme without consulting your kid. It’s just not done! Ask them what they want to have for their birthday party. It’s their party, so it just makes sense that they have a say in what goes on during their special day. And, you never know, they may think of something you would never have thought of.
- Do send invites
You need to make invitation cards. Sending invites makes the event’s details clear cut. This way, you won’t get calls from your guests asking for directions or asking what time the party will start. If all your guests are social media savvy, then it will be easier for you to make a Facebook event and invite them through that page. It also makes it easier to send reminders and notes to your guests this way. You can also monitor who will be coming and who will not be, so you can make an official headcount ahead of time.
- Don’t throw a massive birthday bash too early
When you’re celebrating the first three years of your child, you don’t have to throw a large birthday party. They don’t have the cognitive ability to appreciate your efforts fully. You can do something simple and just invite your close friends and relatives to the event. Anyway, you will have a lot of opportunities to celebrate their birthday in a bigger way in the future. Wait until they are a few years older before you plan a massive birthday bash.
- Don’t splurge on the goody bags
Giveaways and loot bags can contain simple and inexpensive things such as cheap toys, crayon sets and colouring books. These are kids! They’ll appreciate anything you give them. Keep the budget reasonable for each bag.
These dos and don’ts will surely make any birthday bash you plan a success, so follow this useful guide to get the party going easily.
