If you are planning to organise a birthday party for the coming birthday of your child then there are lots of things you need to plan. Celebrating a birthday at home leads to a lot of effort required and preparation needs to be started early. Here are a few tips from Chinese kindergartens to make this birthday bash a big success:
First of all, you need to ask your child about the type of birthday party he/she wishes to have because it is their special day and it is important to know their opinion. The theme of the party made according to your child’s guidelines will help you to narrow down your decoration choices and steer the other activities into right direction.
Make decisions about who will be the guests for the party; your child may wish to invite some of his/her close friends so make your list accordingly. Also make a decision on how you can host the children in the party so that it does not become a mess while managing their activities.
Line up the type of entertainment you wish to have during the party and make sure it is entertaining for all age groups that you are thinking of inviting to the party.
It is important to send invitations on time so that your guests can manage their schedules accordingly. It is also good to make some creative invitations that fit with the theme of the party and clearly indicate the timings of party because most of them will come with toddlers and they may need specific timing details that will fit their baby’s schedule.
The list of items that you need for party must be prepared carefully. If you are thinking of cooking food for all the guests at home, you need to buy all the items and ingredients for cooking. If you are planning to order it from a caterer then you have to search for the best caterers in town. If you have to, plan for cake and decorate on items as necessary.
Make decisions whether this party will be celebrated in the lawn or inside the house. Outdoor parties are suitable for specific timings and seasons as a rainy day can spoil all your plans.
Find some time to decide on the menu for the day. It would be better to decide something palatable to kids because there will be numbers of kids in the party and you need to care about their preferences to make them happy on the day.
Before the big day, you have to set up your house for party mode and it will demand hours of cleaning and decoration. Call up those who can help you in this task and try to finish all the decoration work one day before the party.
On the day of party, prepare the food on time and then get ready along with your birthday baby. It is time to welcome all your guests and have a lovely and memorable time together.
Never forget to send thank you cards to all those who made your party awesome.
