Collaborative Post¦ Every year your little one’s birthday rolls around and you start to panic slightly about their dream party. Each time you discuss it with them they have a different vision or grand plan that you’re not entirely sure how to execute. Creating the best possible kid’s birthday party feels like a lot of pressure as a parent, but you have totally got this under control. First of all, you need to take it one step at a time so you don’t get overwhelmed by everything there is to do. As soon as you have conquered these five things you’ll be well on your way to planning the most incredible kid’s birthday party ever!
- Themed Decor
Choosing the theme for your little one’s birthday is probably a no-brainer, especially if they’ve told you outright what they want! From Disney themed to pirate style, there are so many different options to explore. Why not make things extra special with stunning confetti cannons for a real show stopping entrance too?!
- A Bouncy Castle or Entertainer
Every kids party needs some sort of entertainment whether that’s a bouncy castle or a dedicated entertainer on the day. You and your child can decide what would be best depending on the ages of the party guests. Magicians, pizza makers and circus entertainers are just a few ideas to get the ball rolling for you!
- Delicious Food
Why settle for a few cold cocktail sausages and soggy sandwiches? It’s time to up your game when it comes to kids’ party food, especially because the parents always love to nibble it themselves! You could fill up a few slow cookers with hot food and serve up bolognese with crusty bread or mild curry with white rice. Thinking of something a little different is always sure to impress your tiny party guests!
- An Epic Cake
What’s the best part of a birthday party? Cake of course! If you have some time to spare it’s definitely worth thinking more about the cake as it can often be the centrepiece for the whole party. Whether you make it yourself or hire a talented baker to help bring your vision to life, there are no doubts that it will be incredible to look at and taste!
- Party Favours
After attending so many birthday parties with your own child, it can feel so difficult to find party favours that your child’s friends are actually going to love. Often you are handed a bag full of useless plastic items that you really don’t want to take home and keep in your house! Why make other parents suffer the same emotions? Give your child something they are actually going to appreciate and use in the future, whether it’s a personalised cup with their name on it or a cute pencil case for school!
Work your way through each of the five steps mentioned above and you will soon feel totally confident with your child’s upcoming birthday party!
