Remember when we were kids? We would debate for hours about who had the best birthday party. From the yummiest food, the best entertainment to the most beautiful decorations, we had a strict and comprehensive way of ranking our birthday parties. As parents, we must think this way. How can I plan the best birthday party ever for my child, to make him or her the happiest person in the world for just a day?
Let’s break this down into four different categories: Venue and Decorations, Food, Entertainment and Guests
VENUE AND DECORATIONS
One important thing to consider when planning the ultimate birthday party is the venue: where is it going to be held? Will it be held at the park? At church? At school? At home? Where is the best possible place to host this event? If you want to save money, home would be the best option. You can prepare all the food at home, host the party as long as you want without limits or extra fees, and it is more convenient for your guests, especially if they live nearby.
Preparing for the party takes a lot of effort, but will probably be the most enjoyable aspect of the entire process for you, as you rope in your child to do it with you. Sourcing decorations are not hard either. There are stores that sell balloon party decorations in Singapore. You can choose between plain coloured decorations, patterned, or even themed decorations. This will bring it to life and get it ready for a proper party.
One thing that every party needs is food. Logically speaking, the kind of food you serve at adult parties is obviously not the same kind you should serve at kid parties. Picture red wine and fancy canapés at a kid’s party. It just doesn’t compute. Of course, cake and ice-cream are traditional options, but also consider cookies, candy, fried chicken, nuggets, chips, pizza, hot dogs, and other snacks that kids love to eat. Having a party at home allows you to customise the menu exactly as you’d like it.
While being in the company of friends and family may be enough for some people, others get bored easily. This applies especially to kids. Music and board games count as entertainment, but have you considered a birthday party magic show? How about hiring some children party entertainers in Singapore? This will certainly bring laughter and enjoyment for everyone. If you are on a budget, there are much cheaper alternatives such as scavenger hunts, arts, and crafts, pin the tail on the donkey or even a piñata.
You can’t have a party without guests. The invite list should comprise of your child’s closest friends and their parents, family, and other family friends. Please remember this is not your party, so don’t go inviting people your child has never seen before. To add even more excitement of memorability, you can capture everyone having a great time when you get a party photo booth rental in Singapore.
With this advice, throwing the best birthday party for your kid should be a breeze. They’ll love every moment of it and will love you for it. And most importantly they will have great childhood memories.
