When you have a big family, those all-important birthdays come around pretty regularly. It can be quite challenging to come up with fresh ideas to celebrate each time. It’s also tricky to budget for large parties or events when you want each child to feel the day is special. You can’t always do the same things for one as you do for the others. So how can you make sure each of your children loves their birthday celebration?
Parties can be expensive to host. And they can take a lot of time and effort on your part. Fortunately, there are many great party planners out there that can take all the stress and worry out of an event like this. Party planners like Pickle Pie Parties can even cover your catering, decorating and photography on your behalf. Having an all-in-one service provider means you can get involved in the fun part without worrying about the planning.
If you are hoping to host a party at your home, you might also need to consider making some space for all your guests. Kids just love to run around and make plenty of noise. It’s a courtesy to invite the neighbors over to join in or, at least, warn them about the disturbance. Moving the furniture out of the way may be as simple as pushing it back against the wall. If you need more space than that, consider rehoming it in the garage, basement or garden for a few hours.
Most parents like to stay when their kids come to a birthday party. As children get older, some parents may be happy leaving their child with you while they grab a couple of hours of peace and quiet! Make sure you have their contact details incase their children want to leave early. You should also ensure you have a good first aid kit to hand. Bumps and scrapes tend to happen when children are excited. Toys and gadgets can also lead to injuries as they’re grabbed and used in the wrong way!
Of course, hosting the party at another venue is always an option. This saves your home from getting messy! Hiring a community hall gives you the space without the hassle. You can still hire a party planner to set up the venue ready and provide the food and entertainment. It can be one of the easiest and stress-free ways to celebrate your child’s birthday.
You may still have relatives visiting to celebrate with you. We often offer our spare rooms for overnight accommodation too. If you have siblings or parents coming to stay, you might need to consider preparing your bedding and spare room for guests. You may also need to buy extra groceries and consider catering for larger numbers for a couple of meals. When you combine this with the pressure of hosting a birthday party, you might start to struggle without help.
It’s not easy planning, preparing, and hosting a kid’s birthday party. It takes a lot of time, organization, and hard work to pull it all together. Hiring a party planner to take on the stressful part of the event can save you a lot of time and hassle. Best of all, it frees you up to be able to spend more quality time with your kids and family.
