How to make your next kids’ party a success?
It’s completely natural to want to throw the best and most special party for your child, one they truly want and deserve, particularly when you’re celebrating something as important as their birthday. However, during these unprecedented times, it seems like booking a venue and organizing a large event might not be a viable option. Instead, it would be wiser to throw a smaller party at home, inviting only the closest friends and family, to ensure everyone’s safety, and protect their health.
So, here are some ways to organize a fun, successful, and enjoyable kid’s party, even during these uncertain times:
1. Choose an exciting theme
By choosing the right theme, you can easily elevate both the décor and the fun aspect of the party, while also getting your kid even more excited about their special day. While you can always opt for a seasonal theme, such as spring flowers or summer fun, a better idea would be to choose something your baby truly loves, whether it’s a superhero like Batman or Spider Man, or their favorite movie, such as Frozen or The Little Mermaid.
No matter which theme you opt for, there are bound to be endless decorations available, both in-store and online, including cups, plates, napkins, costumes, and more. Just remember to include your kid in the party planning process as well, to make the celebration than much more special.
2. Serve the right food and drinks
When holding a party at home, you can easily keep the food simple, while still satisfying the young palates, by opting for pizza bites, mini pastries, or even a selection of sandwiches cut into fun shapes with cookie molds, depending on your kid’s age. If you decide on catering, however, you can also choose more traditional options, such as mini burgers, sausage rolls, cheese cubes, and breadsticks with dips, to keep those tiny tummies full.
When it comes to drinks, it would be best to stick to something like squash or freshly squeezed juices, to avoid an unfavorable sugar rush, even though older kids might enjoy a fizzy drink once in a while. Don’t forget to keep the adults happy with a cup of tea or coffee as well.
3. Invest in a beautiful cake
Once the theme and the food are set, the next thing to do is decide on the perfect birthday cake. The cake is often the star of the show of any kids’ celebration, as they’re the best and tastiest treat the little ones are going to get, while still being a gorgeous and important centerpiece.
For that reason, it might be best to opt for a birthday cake delivery, and put your trust in the professionals. Not only will this ensure quality and delicious dessert, but also a beautifully decorated cake that’s bound to leave everyone in awe. What’s more, they might also be able to provide you with a gorgeous cake that perfectly fits your chosen theme.
4. Prepare lots of entertainment options
From bouncy castles and Disney princesses to fascinating magicians and funny clowns, there are endless entertainment options you can hire for your child’s birthday party. However, professional entertainers can often be quite costly, and might not be the best option for a small home gathering.
If you want something a bit more low-key, while still fun for the little ones, you can also opt for interesting party games the kids are bound to love, such as dress-ups, musical chairs, or treasure hunts in the backyard.
5. Think about fun party bags
Party favors are also part of the birthday magic – they’re quick and simple to put together, but they bring the kids so much joy, and make them feel more included in the celebration. Whether you decide to fill them with a slice of the birthday cake, homemade cookies, sweets or little toys, there’s no denying the little ones are going to love them. You could also opt for things like stickers, crayons and little writing books, for a sugar-free alternative. Either way, make sure to add a name tag on the bag for each child, as a nice way of thanking them for coming to the party.
No matter how big or small, throwing a party for your kid at home can truly be a piece of cake. With just a bit of advanced preparation, the right décor, and lots of entertainment, any child’s birthday party can be an interesting, enjoyable and successful event.
