Your kiddie birthday party is a big deal so make sure you plan everything ahead of time so nothing is left out. To do that, it will be a good idea to make a checklist which you must follow until the event is finally over.
Planning for the kiddie birthday party must be done a month or two in advance. You can start by thinking already where will the party be held, who will be invited, what is the theme of the party, what time will this be held and how long will be party be.
Since this is your kid’s party, let them get involved with the decision making. If they wish to have the party held in their favorite restaurant, so be it. Go to the restaurant and reserve the place. Just hope that no one has reserved the date and the time because if you do, you will have to reschedule everything.
The advantage of having a kiddie party done in a restaurant is that you don’t have to worry about the decorations, activities, prizes and the other details. If the restaurant does this on a regular basis, they already have a program prepared and all you have to do is choose the package which already includes the food that will be served.
Let’s say your kid does not want to have the party in a restaurant and instead want to have this done at home. If that is the case, you will have to start planning based on theme the d?cor you will be using, the prizes that will be handed out, the activities that will be done and the food that will be served.
There are many advantages of having the kiddie birthday party done at home. You don’t have to make a reservation since the place is yours, it is your decision what food to be served and you get to decide how long will the party last. Parties held in restaurants are usually over in two to three hours and that is a bit short for those who want to stay longer.
Two to three weeks before the kiddie party, you should have already sent out the invitations to all your guests. Make sure there you put your contact number so the guests can confirm if they can make it or not.
If there are a few other details that have not yet been taken cared of, you better get help from your friends and relatives.
A week or two before the party, already order the cake from the store if you don’t plan to make it yourself. Again, let your kid help out by letting him choose how the cake should look like because this is their birthday cake.
For those who plan to serve home made food, make sure this is done ahead of time then stored in the freezer. You wouldn’t want to cram a day before since that is going to very difficult.
The day before the party, buy film and charge the video camera. Confirm with people who you invited if they are attending or not. If this is done at home, decorate the place the night before.
On the day of the kiddie birthday party, bring out the food and just have fun with your kid and all of those you invited.
