Planning a kid’s birthday party is arguably more stressful than planning one for adults; at least you know what adults want. Besides that, your brain is probably flush with questions concerning the process. What kind of food do kids like? Where do they want to have the party? How many guests will I invite? How are you, a grown adult, going to entertain so many children?
Well, the good news is that you don’t need to take a central role in the party. Children enjoy playing with their friends, so once the festivities begin, you can relax and supervise from far. However, your major task is organizing the party (since children typically can’t do that). Here are some tips for throwing the perfect birthday party for your kid.
Set a Budget
The birthday costs really begin to ramp up when you start finalizing the guest list. Most parents don’t have a clear idea of how many people they’ll be serving at the party. That’s why it’s a good idea to set a budget and stick with it. The budget limits how large the party gets, but it does let you experiment with food, guests, etc., to make a great party.
Pick the Date
It’s common knowledge that birthdays don’t need to be celebrated on the actual day.
Of course, you don’t want to delay the party months after the day. Find out which day works for the most important people to the party, such as your kid’s best friend, you and your spouse, et al.
Your Home or a Birthday Venue?
The choice between home and venue parties comes down to cost and convenience. Home parties typically cost less than booking a birthday venue since you can control the food and decoration costs. However, birthday venues are substantially more convenient than home parties since they take care of every detail before and during the party, leaving you stress-free.
Firstly, a home party means you need to organize catering and decorations. That could involve cooking and setting up all the decorations on your own. A birthday venue is significantly more convenient and has substantially more entertainment options (hence the greater cost). Besides setting up the party, you’ll also have to clean up if you keep it at home. If you have a flexible budget, renting out a venue is the more convenient and preferable option.
