Birthday parties are always fun and exciting. Kids’ parties are more fun than adults’ parties; as it is way easier to satisfy kids compared to adults. First of all set a budget for the party; otherwise things will get out of hand. Let your child participate in the preparations; that will make him so excited and happy.
With your child, pick a theme for the party. There are several options concerning that matter; either you set a general theme for the birthday (pirates, cowboys, princesses…etc), or set a certain character (a certain Disney princess, spider man, ben10, minions…etc).
Setting the theme will help you determine the shape of the cake and all the decorations for the day (tablecloth, napkins, paper plates and cups, posters and even the program) There are few questions you should run in your mind before throwing the party.
When would it be (what day of the week)? How many people will be invited? Where will it be held? How long will the party last? How many adults will be there? Who will supervise it? And you should take your kid’s age into consideration; the younger he is, the earlier the party should be.
Plan the party food. When would you buy the food? will you bake the cake or order it? Cupcakes are so trendy these days and make less mess. You need more than just a cake anyway; pizza is a winner in any party. Or you can order any restaurant’s kids meals. If you plan a barbeque party, kids will love hotdogs and burgers (but don’t forget the fries and ketchup). Just don’t choose messy food.
Make sure that your kid’s happiness and preferences come first no matter how you plan the party.
