Your Child’s Birthday Party Checklist

Planning your child’s birthday party can be truly a strenuous work – what with phone calls to make, incorporating what dietary nutrition needs to be considered in the celebration, what entertaining games to come up with, and decorating the house with the chosen birthday theme. With all of these concerns in mind, a simple-to-follow checklist can be most beneficial so you can chart the planned activities in a time plan.

Sending Out Invitations

Assuming you have the budget, normally, about three months before the birthday date is the ideal preparation period in accomplishing all the important details of the birthday celebration. Have your kid be involved in his/her birthday preparation and the first thing that both of you must undertake is to discuss and decide who will be invited to the party. As soon as the list of guests have been decided, you may now work out with your kid on the kind of invitation – should it reflect a theme motif, design, color, etc. Birthday invitation cards can be secured in many ways – there are printed invitations in supply stores, make your own invitations, or print from an online birthday card template. Take about a month before the birthday date to issue out the invitations.

Planning the Right Food for the Party

Serious and safety considerations must be weighed down in preparing for the kind of food for the celebration, and these are – the nutritional value, will not cause allergy, stomach problems, food poisoning, and must be delicious. It’s always good planning to come up with a grocery list and schedule your cooking, if you have decided to cook the food yourself.

Plan for The List of Supplies

Planning ahead with a supply list, paper plates, napkins, disposable spoons and forks, etc, will help save time and effort for any missing item when you go grocery shopping.

Ordering for A Birthday Cake

It won’t be a birthday celebration without a birthday cake; therefore, you have to either buy one that can serve for all the guests or cook one yourself. It would be nice if you could come up with a surprise birthday cake that would delight your kid and to achieve this is to work this out to a baker or cake specialist.

Consider the Kind of Entertainment for the Party

It would be a good idea that you and your kid talk about the kind of games that will be introduced in the party so that there will still be enough time to prepare for it. You many choices to decide on, like rented games like board games or video game consoles, parlor games, hiring an entertainer like a magician or a birthday production number, and each choice will depend on cost, time, and available space in the house.
