Top Tips to Plan Your Child’s Birthday Party

Whether your child is turning two or ten, a fun birthday party can help him/her feel special when surrounded by friends and family. Birthday party planning, however, can get overwhelming. Make planning simpler by focusing on these four important aspects of any party:

A Fun Theme

First, pick the theme of your child’s birthday party. Most kids have some sort of obsession. Whether they love movies, books, TV shows or games, plan your party around favorite themes. Buy decorations to match the theme or find simple DIY decorations to make on your own. You can even design the invitations and cake to match. A theme can make party decisions easier to make by giving you direction.

Delicious Party Foods

Children love foods of all kinds, but can make a mess. Consider serving a meal, instead of just leaving snacks out, to help control when and where kids can eat—and spill. Pick foods that they’ll enjoy like pizza, macaroni and cheese or hamburgers. Keep the food simple; as it doesn’t take much to please kids. Plus, simple food can help lower your stress levels. You can also have food catered or hold the party at a location where food—and clean-up—is provided.

A Great Cake

Many parents outsource the cake to a local bakery. Bakeries can make amazing themed designs that just might not be worth the stress or time at home. If you need to save some cash, find decorating kits to make your child’s homemade cake stand out without spending hours on frosting.

Kid-Friendly Activities

Kids need activities to keep them busy during a birthday party. Plan party games to help keep kids entertained. Or, make it easier on yourself by holding the party at a fun location. That way, you can focus on your child instead of having to entertain a dozen or more children.
