Celebrate with your child in style so that when they blow out their candles, they’ll be wishing next year will be just as good. Each age your child reaches is a milestone, so it makes sense why you want to make the celebration special. This is their birthday party so try and include them in the process. Planning the perfect children’s birthday party can be very stressful as you consider you need to please both children and their parent. Don’t worry, we’re here to help you break this down so the day is as stress free as possible.

1. Budget

Before you sit down with your child to get a rough idea of what they want, consider how much money you are willing to spend. Once you have a figure you are happy with in your mind, write down a list of suggestions within budget that you can propose to your child and allow them to choose.

2. Set a time

Children’s birthday parties don’t typically last too long because participants tend to get tired, grow restless, and get bored. Set a timeframe of up to 2 hours, as they get older you’ll see that they can party a little longer, or will want to do something more adventurous like a trampoline party.

3. Invitations

Send the invitations out early so parents and children can prepare in advance. Important information to include in your invitations are: Your child’s full name, the time and place of the party – with full address, and what the duration of the event is. Include the option to reply by putting down your phone number or email address, and decide a deadline you would like to hear back by.

4. Decorations

Some of you may choose to make your own decorations, if you do, this can be a truly fun, and bonding experience to have with your child. Some of you may lean towards buying decorations, or perhaps doing a mixture of both. Whichever you choose, there’s no right or wrong option. Save time and find birthday decorations online, and if you decide to book your children’s birthday party at a venue, you might not need to buy too many decorations, if at all.

5. Entertainment

If you are organising all the activities and entertainment yourself, be sure to have planned many options and filled the time slot. However, if you wish to save yourself time, energy and stress, book professional children’s entertainment so that the kids can be engaged for whole party and letting you relax. Consider magicians, clowns, a mime artist, face painting, or jugglers.

6. Food

There are many options for food at a children’s birthday party, but a buffet is the best option. Remember to check if anyone has any allergies or dietary issues. At children’s birthday parties, the food always around so that it is always readily available to hungry children. For a main dish, think about simple food like pizza, burgers, raw vegetables, sausages, and pasta.

7. Party bags

Generally, these party bags are like a little thank you gift to the party guests for coming. It is entirely up to you what you decide to put in the bags. Usually there are sweets, treats, books, and sometimes even little toys – the choice is up to you. Just make sure you have enough for all of your guests and some extra.

8. Theme

An option for a children’s birthday party is bring fantasy to life. Is there a children’s movie that your child loves? Or a comic character they really enjoy? Remember, whatever theme you go with, your whole party will be centred around that theme, the decorations, the activities, and potentially the cake. Write down theme ideas to bring to your child such as: Disney, Pirates, animals, Lego, Super heroes, Cars, Unicorns, Trolls, or even Emojis. If you decide to have the children’s party at a venue, some of them may cater for your chosen theme.
