Expert Tips & Tricks for Planning Your Child’s Next Birthday Bash

Planning and throwing birthday parties for your little one can be fun and exciting, but it’s easy to get overwhelmed toThis year, take some extra steps to stay ahead of the chaos, so you can enjoy your child’s special day right along with them. Here are some simple tricks to help your next birthday party go off without a hitch!

Limit the guest list, but be prepared for a few extra guests

In general, it’s a good idea to decide how many kids you want to invite to the party before you start planning any of the other elements. While you may feel obligated to invite your child’s entire class, the stress of 22 little ones running around may put a damper on the fun. Lay the groundwork for a guest list before you start organizing food and activities, but be sure you have extra place settings, party favors, etc. in case one of your child’s friends brings along a sibling or too.

Plan at least one month ahead

With all of the extracurricular events going on each weekend, it can be difficult for some children to attend your party on short notice. Planning ahead will not only give you more time to iron out the details of the celebration, it will also increase the number of invitees who can attend your child’s party.

Choose a theme and stick to it!

Themed parties are the perfect way to customize your child’s day to their specific interest. Once you decide on the perfect theme, be sure all of the décor, refreshments and party favors align with it. Focusing on a single theme will help simplify your decision-making throughout the planning process.

Take party favors to the next level

Everyone will expect the typical goodie bag full of candy and other little trinkets. Why not take your guests (and their parents) by surprise with some totally unique party favors? Think personalized water bottles for a sports party, take-home arts & crafts kits, personalized notebooks; the possibilities are endless!

Choose a fun, kid-friendly venue

In most cases, location can make or break a birthday party.
