Planning A Child's Birthday Party

Nov 9, 2007
When planning a birthday part start with a budget, how much are you willing to pay for this and how many people you want to invite. Do you think your birthday party should have many guests, or do you prefer a more intimate and small birthday party? Try not to plan a long party; children usually start to break down after a hour and a half. So a good length of time for a birthday party is about an hour to two hours.

The 1st birthday for a child is a very special event for the parents. Deciding on your party theme will help you decide on what kind of party invitations you need to send out.

Proper planning is the key. Don't forget to add your small personal touches to the party. Careful party theme planning will take care of this. This is especially true of children's parties. Party planning must be done in advance. What stops many a party in it's tracks is a warped perception of time and money. Creating a party theme does not have to be cost prohibited, you can come up with many different themes that will cost half the price as buying a theme in box.

Birthday party themes come in all sizes and shapes, you can find these different themes on the internet and at your local party store. Party ideas can also come from the guest of honor who may have some desires of his or her own.

Birthday candies, birthday confetti and chocolate fountain are some of the mouth watering recipes. The birthday cake is the piece de resistance of the party. Create a simple party checklist, this way you can keep all tasks in order and not forget anything when planning the party. Forgetting to place an order for the birthday cake is a disaster. The birthday cake should be prepared in accordance with the age of the birthday boy or birthday girl and the invitees. Candles that represent the age of the birthday child are used by many families. When placing the candles on the birthday cake you will need the exact count of the child's age plus one more for good luck.

Decorate your room with paper streamers, a flashing light and other decorations; this will make the birthday room look festive and inviting. Nicely designed plates can hold the food and drinks you will be serving your food on, don't forget about the party favors, these can be banks, key chains or any other fun item. Don't forget the party prizes, music and the most important thing the party favors, the party favors are a way of saying thank you for coming to my party. When choosing party favors you need to remember that the favors will be handed to many party guests so keep the cost to a minimum. Favors are one of the highlights for children at a birthday party.

Remember you do not need to go overboard. The main thing to focus is that you give yourself enough time to plan the party. Make sure you are able to carry out all tasks, this way your child's birthday will be great.
