It’s another birthday party for your kid! As the day approaches, you decided that you want to make this party BETTER than the last one. However, just as how often you do the planning for your kid’s party, every time you plan a birthday party you are back to frustrating moments again.
If you want to plan a birthday party, it’s not difficult, here are some help to make the birthday bash as wonderful and memorable the way you planned it to be.
Brainstorming of Party Ideas
To plan a birthday party means to come up with bright ideas with your spouse and the rest of your children. If you’re going to celebrate a first birthday party for your only child, get ideas and inspirations from other family members and friends. Asking others for ideas could help make your planning faster and more fool-proof. Remember, birthday party planning is not one person’s effort, it requires help from everyone.
Make a Checklist
If you plan a birthday party for your kid, party supplies are major consideration. From the cake, foods, refreshments, venue, number of people; all these must be featured in your checklist. To make everything well planned and organized, jotting these down to a notebook will help. If you plan for an event, writing down the nitty-gritty will play a big role in your planning stage. This is also the time where you can weigh things properly. If you are aiming for a particular cake for the party, you can compare prices and list cake prices down on your checklist. This will facilitate in coming up with a well thought out particulars in your child’s party. Lastly, if you don’t want to miss a single detail for the big day, providing a checklist will contribute a big difference.
The next important thing to look at is the guests invitation. If you’re holding a kid’s party, most of the time you will have guests who are the same age as your birthday child, plus parents who may turn up too. With this, always plan it as 1 + 1 invitation: one child will come with one parent. But you can just provide one invitation for each child. Make sure that you also give the invitation at least 2 weeks before the party. This will give guests the chance to arrange their schedules and spend time with your child’s birthday bash.
It’s Party Time!
Just when you thought the planning stage is through the moment the party is being held, it doesn’t. The actual party will be the execution of your plans. To plan a birthday party means to be in constant monitor of the entire event until it comes to an end, do not panic if anything goes wrong. If you have planned for emergencies you shouldn’t worry too much.
Planning a birthday party is not easy, but all your effort and planning will be worthwhile when your child say, “This is the best birthday party I have ever had!”.
