If you want your birthday party to be an occasion to remember, you should consider using personalized shot glasses as your birthday party favors. Personalized shot glasses are quite a very wonderful idea for a birthday party favor and they can be engraved with the name of the person having the birthday and the dates of the birthday or even just a number that is symbolically the age of the person celebrating the birthday. Guests are always very appreciative of any party favor and personalized shot glasses would certainly be a welcome gift.
Children are developing their own personalities, so their likes and dislikes can change dramatically in just a short period of time. On several occasions, I've heard stories from party-planning parents who began planning their kids birthday party a couple months in advance, only to have their child lose interest in the theme completely before their big day arrived. There are a few ways you can try to avoid this.
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.
Gone are the days when birthday parties were limited to celebrations with family and friends in the home decked with birthday decorations. Nowadays, birthday parties have moved out of homes to attractive venues where the traditional birthday festivities are combined with events to entertain guests.
