When my younger daughter Hannah was in preschool, I noticed that parents would tuck birthday party invitations into the children's open cubby squares. Though this method did not present a problem when all children in a class were invited to a party, when some youngsters were invited and others were not - particularly when the invitations were in brightly colored envelopes - it was all-too-clear to the ones not invited that there was no envelope in their cubbyhole. In the preschool years, it's better for parents to hand the invitations directly to the other parents or caregivers. Or, if that's not possible due to work schedules, to bite the bullet and mail them. Better yet, to email the invitations if that's an agreeable alternative.
From the time you order your supplies until the day of your kid's birthday party, you can help keep your child interested in the theme with some special activities. If you plan a Princess-themed party for a little girl, you can mail her a birthday card and sign the name of her favorite princess. You can take your little boy on a real train ride to keep him excited about a Thomas the Tank Engine theme, or take your child to the zoo if the theme of your kid's birthday party is jungle animals.
But, the question is how to make birthday parties electrifying and fun packed? Birthday gifts, decorative cakes and attractive invitation cards are a must for a birthday party and these effects make every birthday party the same in one way or the other, which eventually makes it mind-numbing and monotonous.
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.
Don't forget the extras-Just because it is a surprise birthday party, there is no reason to forget the extras. You can have games, activities, crafts, and even party bags that are all specific to the age group of the party. For a party that encompasses kids to adults, consider having theme tables. Crafts and activities for kids, with quieter spots for adults to gather and converse. As a final touch be sure to leave some disposable cameras around so that party guests can snap pictures of each other, and the birthday boy or girl enjoying the party.
