It doesn’t take a lot of work to have a great children’s birthday party or find entertainment for kids, says Fun Factory Parties (based at Beverly Hills, Portola Valley, Belvedere Tiburon, San Francisco California)
Your children’s birthday, back to school, holiday, or other party celebration is important to you. The time, expense, and effort you put into it is a testimony of your love and care for them so you don’t want to trust the details to just anyone.
There are many important considerations to pulling off an amazing celebration. Some of these include:
· Inviting the right number of friends for the venue and the occasion
· Considering the time of day or evening for your event in relation to your guests
· Addressing the amount and type of food or snacks available
· What sort of entertainment or activities to have available
The number of guests is no small detail. Young children can easily become overwhelmed in crowds and a gathering of a hundred friends for a three year olds birthday party could very well end in tears for many of the children (and their parents). Alternatively, a 15 year old might get easily bored with just five of his friends and a cake. Knowing your child and their friend’s activity level and attention span is an important part of planning a successful party.
The time of day for your party is also an important detail that is sometimes overlooked. If young children are the attendees, do they have naptimes that might need to be considered? What about curfews for older children? Additionally, children of all ages have sports and other activities that might interfere, and nothing is worse than throwing a party that no one comes to because of a conflicting event.
While most kids love cupcakes, candy, and party food like nachos or sandwiches, it is important to remember that food allergies are potentially dangerous and must be considered. Asking the guests’ parents to RSVP with any pertinent information about diet restrictions is one way to ensure that your guests will leave feeling satisfied.
Other than the guest of honor, entertainment is often the highlight of a party. Bounce houses and inflatable activities such as slides and obstacles courses are a huge hit for all children. Themed parties that include clowns, magicians, or a favorite character can be the talk of the cafeteria for weeks after the event. When choosing the theme or activity for your child’s party, consider their age, activity level, and interests.
Paying attention to the details will result in your child’s party being the fun celebration you envisioned.
