6 Ways to Create the Perfect Kids Birthday Party

>> Sep 17, 2011

There shouldn’t be any feeling other than excitement at planning a birthday party for your young child. The best parties are a reminder to us of how great it is to be young and hopefully makes us think back to fond memories of our own birthday parties as children. Unfortunately, often these parties turn out to be a lot more stressful than they need to be. It can be easy to over-think things and crack under the pressure to make the day perfect. Here are 6 ways to help you create a birthday party that is nothing than a whole lot of simple, pure fun.

1. Send invitations out well in advance.
Printing and sending out cute invitations to all those invited is absolutely key. You need to make sure all your child’s friends and their parents can make the occasion, so be sure to give plenty of notice. It also helps to put an RSVP date on the invites, so that you can get an idea of exact numbers. Knowing exactly how many will be attending will make planning everything else for the party a whole lot easier.

2. Invite as many parents as you can.
It’s unlikely that all the parents will be able to come, but making sure that they know they are all welcome will help take the pressure off on the day. A large number of children, who’ve all consumed a large amount of sugar, can be a significant challenge to keep under control.

If you make sure to provide some entertainment for the parents who attend, the day will run a lot smoother and you will find you are able to relax and enjoy the party.

3. Fancy dress.
This is the simplest way to create a fun environment for the children. Everyone loves an occasion to dress up, and role-playing will be the easiest way to keep the kids preoccupied for hours and hours.

There’s no need to come up with an elaborate theme: something simple like ‘what I want to be when I grow up’ or ‘favourite character’ is all you need. This means the other parents don’t need to worry about purchasing a new costume, and all the fairies, princesses, pirates and peter pans will make for great photos and help create an exciting atmosphere.

4. Balloons, bubbles, music.
This is essentially all you need to create the perfect party atmosphere. Have a bunch of kid’s albums ready to play so you don’t go crazy from hearing the same music over and over. The kids probably won’t mind but you certainly will! And never underestimate the power of bubbles in providing hours of entertainment. So simple, yet so effective.

5. Get creative with the birthday cake.
This is always the highlight of the day, so it deserves a bit of attention. Visit your local bookstore or library for ideas on creating a cake that stands out.

You could also look into creating a birthday cake out of a lot of mini cupcakes, which has become quite popular recently. A lot of nicely iced little cupcakes can look very impressive and take the pressure off making sure that the one birthday cake is decorated to perfection. Of course, the easiest option is always to simply purchase the cake or rope someone else into baking it for you.

6. Take lots of photos on the day.
You will regret it if you don’t. Children typically enjoy having photos taken, and it really is to your benefit to document the special day.

After the occasion, you can use your local printing services to send some of the pictures to the other parents, or create an album from the day that will make for a great memento. If you’ve followed the steps outlined here, the party will have been a success and you deserve to have something special to remind you of it.
