Throwing a party for a group of children can be a daunting experience. This article highlights the do’s and don’t of throwing a birthday party for young children
The whole children's birthday party process can be just as easy or as complicated as you're willing to make it. Just remember a few simple rules for planning a children's birthday party.
In this post I discuss the following topics:
Nowadays it seems that the way most parties are organised or planned includes paying someone else to do the activity, or booking a venue with an activity included. This is a fine way to do a kids party and quite possibly a whole lot less stressful for the parent…and perhaps even works as a treat for the birthday boy or girl if they're doing something they love but ordinarily wouldn't so.
I however, am a little old fashioned and still prefer to organise and run my children's parties at home (or at a rented hall if space is an issue). I like to be in charge of the activities they will be doing, I enjoy making the decorations and deciding what food to make. My favourite part of my children's parties is the making of the cake. I easily spend more time doing that , than on any other part of the event.
So, if you are like me, and want to do an@home party; what should you do to ensure you have a successful party?
Remember, young guests will be excited…
There are bound to be mishaps. Try to keep your sense of humour, and know that even if every aspect of the party doesn't go as planned, the most important thing that you and your child enjoy the day!
Most of all, make your child the centre of the day. Enjoy it together and remember to take lots of photos to look back on one day.
