7 Tips for a Top Birthday Party

Age appropriate – it sounds obvious, but remember this party is for the kids! Keep the kiddos in mind every step of the way.

Budget – and we don’t just mean money! Although obviously it is important to keep an eye on the cash flow, remember to budget your time too. If you don’t have 3 days spare to hand whittle a life size raft for a ‘Moana’ themed party, then don’t do it! Get help, hire professionals, or keep plans within rage of what you can manage, without exhausting yourself.

Great expectations – let the birthday hero know what to expect, so when the details of the party are revealed, they are delighted! This is a great way to avoid disappointment.

Warm ups – kids often need time to warm up to their environments, even if the party is at home. Start the party with low key and gentle entertainment until the little ones feel confident and immersed in the party. Things like optional face painting and craft activities are a great idea to kick things off.

Everyone’s a winner – if you are incorporating a competition element into your party, try and keep it all-inclusive so everyone gets a prize of some kind. This is a party after all!

Outdoor vs Indoor – think about your venue carefully. Is there enough shade, and temperature control at your venue? Will kids require sunscreen/hats/swimwear in order to enjoy the party safely? Be sure to consider the practicalities of your venue for all, and give invitees all the information they need to come prepared too.

Pinterest is your friend! – Pinterest is bursting with brilliant decor hacks and inspiration for all budgets. If you are feeling uninspired, a browse on Pinterest is the perfect fix!
