A kids birthday party would not be complete without the supplies needed. This is because the party supplies are the ones that will make the party more lively, exciting, and enjoyable for the birthday celebrator as well as for the guests.
Nowadays, there are so many one-stop-stores that offer almost all the supplies you need to pull off a kids birthday party. But since many of them would encourage you to buy as many items as possible, it is best if you have a list of the things that you really need. Aside from avoiding confusion, having a list of the supplies you need can also help you save money since you will only be buying the items that you really need. The following is a simple list of the supplies needed for a kids birthday party:
1. Invites and Thank you notes. These are the basic supplies you need for a kids birthday party simply because without these, no one will be informed about the party and there is no way that you can thank the attendees after the party. Today, there are so many ready made invitations and thank you notes that can match almost any theme you have in mind. These come in different sizes, colors, shapes, designs, and volume depending on your need and the number of guests you will be inviting. But, if you want to veer away from the common invites and thank you notes, you can make your very own using different colored papers, acetates, and frillings that you can attach on them.
2. Decorations for the party venue. If you are planning to hold the party at the comforts of your own home, you are in charge of decorating the place. Decorations will depend on the theme of the party. But, no matter what the theme is, make sure that the decorations are colorful and lively since this is a kids birthday party. To add more zest to the party, include banners, centerpieces, hats, blowers, and candles that match the theme. You can also make streamers that would welcome the guests to the venue. If you rented the venue, ask the owner to take charge of the decorations. You can give specific instructions so the decoration of the venue will fit the theme.
3. Party favors to be given away. After the party, it has been a tradition to give favors to those who have attended it. Giving party favors is one of the ways of thanking the guests for taking the time off and celebrate with you. Party favors will also depend on the theme of the party. Party favors may contain souvenirs, goodies such as candies and chocolates, as well as toys and other treats that kids usually enjoy.
4. Party ware to be used during the party. If you are holding the party at home, it is best to chose party wares such as plates, utensils, glasses and even napkins to suit the theme. In stores, you can choose from a wide variety of selections. The good thing about these options is that you can mix and match the items that you will be using.
Other supplies needed for kids birthday parties include balloons that come in many colors, shapes, and sizes depending on the theme, pi?atas that can be a favorite cartoon character or toy, and crafts needed for the games during the party.
