A birthday is the most special day in the life of a child. At a , they are the center of attention; they are showered with gifts, pampered and absolutely indulged in. It can be a little taxing to plan a different birthday party year on year given that their likes and dislikes keep changing with the blink of an eye.
Child wants to go back to school the next day and have his friends talk about his party, how cool the return gifts were, how good the cake was and how everyone went home, winning at least one game. The celebration for the birthday party starts a week in advance when the invitations go out. The invitation needs to be alluring and make the children feel that they are going to miss something if they are not present.
If you have a big budget you could hire a clown and have him prance into your child's class in the middle of a lesson. Through some song and dance he would distribute invitation cards and invite all to a magnificent birthday. Next is the theme of the birthday partyThe theme has to be relevant; it has to be something the children are aware of, something they come across everyday, something that makes them tick. Their favorite cartoons, their favorite pop star, even their favorite movie star. This is one occasion, education needs to be kept out of the picture, and the theme should be hooked on fun. Intimate the kids in advance, to dress up according to the theme of the party, it will add color and give the party another dimension. Gifts for the best dressed child can also be given.
The decor should match the theme of the party. Party planners have cut outs and outfits of popular themes made to order. They are inexpensive as they are very popular and simply add more joy to the party. Balloons are essential to any party, children love bursting balloons so make sure you have a lot of balloons adorning the place. The music and entertainment are also very important. Gone are the days when children sung along to nursery rhymes, today, only current pop music will get them swinging? A good magic act will do the trick and a good host to steer the children through a series of simple games like musical chairs will add more cheer to the party.
What children look forward to the most at any is the return gifts! Well, a good thing to consider while purchasing return gifts is how often the children are going to use it. Ideally gifts they would use on a daily basis. Things they can take with them to school, they see everyday. That way, your party will always be on top of mind recall.
All set, now get those invitations rolling!
