For girls, think about having a tea party. Simple tea party etiquette tips and guidelines will help make your child's birthday tea party a great success and one they will remember fondly for years to come. You might want to make an etiquette guideline list and send it along with your invitations, informing your guests that you will be following this list of tea party etiquette guidelines. Be creative! Make it FUN!
The kind of idea that one uses in a birthday party also depends upon whether it is for the birthday of a girl or a boy. Even if you want to throw a superb birthday party for an adult, you can have a theme. This theme can be based on their hobby or interest. You can always have a rock and roll theme or even a Hollywood theme. You can also base the idea on the theme of a particular decade.
Don't be afraid to ask other people for help. While you may be in charge of the planning, that does not mean that others can't help with the decorating, food, or even delivering the birthday celebrant. Dividing up the party needs, can make the whole thing come together, smoother and easier.
For older kids, you can have the party at any of the locations mentioned above, plus more. But party guests are more demanding at this age, so you need to be careful in choosing something not too childish. Parties for older children tend to be more expensive and could last an entire day, so plan accordingly.
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.
