Ever wondered what all it takes to have a birthday?
Well, here we have the ABC’s of it… have fun!
When you are younger growing old is fun…. it means you can now do so much more than you could as a child… You are suddenly old enough for post dinner tv, or to stay over at your friends house… or to go for a party! Ageing is fun till a certain age!!
No party is complete without balloons! And today the balloons are crazier in shapes and sizes than even a few years ago…. They are just such happy things floating around that they really make any place look like its celebrating!
The only thing that screams birthday more than a balloon is the cake!! Two tiered cakes… cakes in the shapes of buses or animals… buttercream and vanilla cakes or cranberries and dark chocolate cakes… something about “bringing the cake out” is such a magical moment!
As an activity, this is easily the most fun and the cheapest activity around!! Just play some funky music and start dancing… soon you’ll have everyone on the dance floor loosening it up!!
Food is an important part of life… and sometimes it becomes the life of a party!!! Serving great food can really make a party memorable… The best part are the snacks and the desserts….!
This is probably the one thing most hosts forget… Have FUN!!! no matter what… remember that after all your planning and organising… you have to sit back and enjoy the day…
This is my favorite part of birthdays… getting gifts and gift wrapping are as much fun as each other!
Party hats…. they really add a sense of celebration to a room… Party hats can also help people loosen up… it brings out their fun side …. the child in them really!
On a hot summer day…. there is nothing better than a cold yummy ice cream!!!
Something that I feel is missing in today’s birthdays, because there are so many more cartoon characters from kids to choose from… but what fun the good ol’ joker was with his red nose!
Not only is it fun to fly, it also makes for a great decor element for a birthday! Colorful and bright … it can cheer up any space…
A childhood memory that still makes me smile…. We would get cadbury lollipops for 5 bucks and it was the greatest five minutes of our lives!!
This is what sets the tone of the party…. funky music gets people dancing…. chilled out music indicates the end of the party….. make a few kinds of CDs and keep them ready!
This is by far the best food to serve at a kids party… a win win for mommy and kiddo! I have yet to meet a kid who didn’t go for the noodles!!
What fun parties are…. there is food, drinks, music, good friends and family and there is always cake and presents!! We love everything about birthday because they are “oh what fun!”
YUp… presents.. come on thats the only reason we loved birthdays as kids didn’t we… because back then we always got these big boxes full of fun things…. today they come in sleek envelopes- gift cards
These make for some great activities… print out sheets, or make custom book full of puzzles and quizzes related to the birthday theme… and enjoy while the kids are busy solving them!!
Boys will be Boys… and at one age or another they will want a racing car party….!
Again, kind of old school but so pretty…. they really make for a great decor element…
The favorite party stall at any party…. the girls will come for glitter unicorns and flowers and the boys will come for swords and cars…. but come they shall all!!!
For the birthdays you don’t want to do something too dramatic…. but have to do something… get up-cycling… get DIY-ing! Make something great out of your everyday things and see your kid enjoy it!
Don’t forget to take plenty…. because the party will get over… and several years later the only memory will be in those videos….
Do that one whimsical thing at your party that stays in peoples minds…. Have a fun photo booth for example… or give everyone a really funny return gift… Something mad that adds that quirk to your party!
These are my all time favorite lights… they are super versatile in the sense you can wrap them around your balcony railing, or stuff them into your old wine bottles or simply hang them around your tv and they will make a space look festive!
The best part about birthdays is that it comes every year!!! So all of that fun… you can experience it again and again!
An all time favorite theme… which kid doesn’t love animals and safaris and the jungle? Almost every nursery rhyme is dedicated to animals!!
There you have at…. you are now ready to throw a big party… call us if you need any help!!!
