We reached out to our friends at The BalloonZ Shop to give us three quick tips for preparing to host a children’s birthday party that will suit any budget.

A Party Planner’s Three Simple Tips for Throwing a Kid’s Birthday Party

1. Plan Early

We live in times with packed schedules and multiple commitments. Work hard to send out your birthday party invites (snail mail or electronic invite) at least one month in advance. You want to make sure your friends and family are fully aware of the fun to come. An early invite allows your party guests to begin to plan ahead for that special day. (Don’t forget to send a few additional gentle reminders to lock in that RSVP either by email or phone.)

2. Keep it Colorful & Simple

Don’t have time or the budget to buy fancy themed decorations? Simplify your deco process by adding color with balloons. Balloons can add flair, fun and of course, can brighten up any party.

Looking to keep the kids busy between arrival and birthday cake time? Plan your kiddo’s favorite simple hands-on or craft activity for party guests to take part in. Search your favorite party supply store or craft store website along with their Pinterest boards for free DIY/craft activities. Generally, these sites will not only list simple tutorials but will also price out the supplies needed.

When ordering your birthday cake skip the fancy fondant design work and go with your own store-bought cake or cupcake toppers to add color – keep things simple, colorful and budget-friendly.

3. Serve Up Bite-Size Themed Eats

Beyond the birthday cake, planning for other food items can be stressful at times.  This is why it is important to start planning early. Don’t break the bank on food items! Peruse through your favorite Pinterest Boards for inspiration and get creative with your party eats with themed food items. (Check out these Doc McStuffins Heart Bandage Cookies using Vanilla Sugar Wafers.) Best food tip:  Keep things simple when hosting a kid’s birthday party.  Don’t make the food items too complicated and remember that sometimes bite-size items can add fun and whimsy to your event.
