Everyone wants their birthday to be special and the party to be unique. This is true not only for the person whose birthday it is, but it also holds true for the people who are organising the party. The key is to hold the kind of party that is unforgettable and exciting. This requires that you have some unique ideas for the birthday party that are going to make the event outstanding.
For within the planning of children's birthday parties and the offering of invitations is a minefield fraught with ethical stumbling blocks and booby traps. Here are three pointers to help you maneuver the maze.
Planning a surprise birthday party can be stressful, but if you are determined, to provide the birthday boy or girl, a party they won't ever forget, it just may be the right choice! A surprise birthday party can let that special someone know, that you really care about their special day! It should be noted that if the birthday boy or girl, especially hates surprise parties (and has mentioned this repeatedly), don't be lulled into thinking you can change their mind. However, for most people, they are thrilled and happily surprised that someone took the time to remember them. So if you think planning a surprise birthday party, for someone close to you is a good idea, then here is what you should know-
Be creative with the food! While birthday cake and punch is fine, for a casual gathering, it doesn't take much more effort to make the party food really shine. If you are worried about budget, you can ask each party guest to bring a favorite party dish (or something reminiscent of the birthday boy or girl), to add as a potluck favorite. A taco, soup or potato bar, can feed a lot of people, without putting a major dent in the budget, and best of all most of the food can be prepared ahead. For a really easy solution for food, you can have the party at the birthday celebrant's favorite restaurant, just be sure to let the each of the party guests know the menu prices, if you won't be picking up the tab.
The tendency to hand out invitations in public places tracks through the grades. In the hubbub that followed a middle school play, I witnessed one preteen distributing birthday party invitations to a delighted crowd surrounding her. Glancing around, I noticed other youngsters also watched the excitement, and were not as pleased about it.
