Birthday Party Secrets - For today's busy working adults, planning a good birthday party and shopping for supplies is a task that often takes up too much valuable time. Proud parents of newborns are also too busy to do much celebrating but they are usually prone to get more involved when choosing party themes. After all, it's the child's "first" birthday. And if the child is the "first" child, even more reason to set valuable time aside.
Common themes of birthday party sets are Disney characters, Halloween, favourite cartoon characters, fancy dress show, ice skating, wild life, favourite colours of the birthday child and many more, which not only sound attention-grabbing and bizarre at times, but in reality are a lot of fun to organize.
Plan the date and time of your kids birthday party first, worry about the theme and party supplies when the date gets nearer. If you buy invitations and send them out in advance with a request that your guests RSVP about 3 weeks before the party, you can delay buying theme party supplies for your kids birthday party until you know who is coming. As a result, your child has less time to change their mind about the theme!
Involve your child in the party planning process. Let them choose some of the decorations or the party favors they want to give the guests at their party. You can even get supplies for some neat and unique craft projects for your kid's birthday. Let them make their own personalized banner or decorate place-mats for the table.
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.
