Children's birthday parties have become much more detailed and complicated than they were fifteen years ago. So, parents easily get overwhelmed with preparing extravagant birthday parties. However, if you just ask kids what their favorite thing about a birthday is, you will be shocked by the answer. The only thing they care about is being with their friends. So, parents, you don't need fancy napkins or an expensive bounce house. All you have to do is to be a bit creative and you can throw a perfect birthday party for your little one at home. Here, we are giving you a few tips to help you organize an amazing kid's birthday party in your home, and we promise you the party will be magical for kids, fun for you, and inexpensive.
Pick A Theme
Deciding on a theme is one of the most important parts of a home birthday party. To choose the perfect theme for your little one's birthday party will have to ask your kid for help. And your child probably already has a few ideas. Ask your little one what is his/her favorite show, game, sport, or toy. If your child loves baseball, for example, then you can serve hot-dogs and caramel corn. However, if your kid is too young to choose a theme then you decide on the theme. Think outside the box and make the birthday party memorable. If you can't make up your mind and pick a theme then select a color that will be dominant. You can also find a cute birthday outfit in that color for your little one and everything will look great.
Decorations are essential for throwing a perfect birthday party for your little one at home
For organizing a perfect birthday party at home, the decoration is essential. When you decide on the theme, the next step is to find the decorations that will match the theme. You have two options here:
- You can buy already-made decorations that you simply need to take out of the package,
- or, if you are crafty, you can make your decorations. Many DIY options will help you make cake table backdrops, colorful vases, and more.
Also, balloons and party hats are a good place to start with decoration and they can be found in any color combination you can imagine. If you want to add another layer of excitement, go with confetti-filled balloons! Kids will love it! Another great idea is to have somewhere in the house a photo backdrop where you can capture the whimsical moment and create memorable family photos.
Plan some activities
Apart from the cake and special gifts, a home birthday party sticks out if there are some activities to keep the kids entertained. To be honest, kids are pretty good at entertaining themselves, so you don't need to hire a magician or clown to make the birthday party fun. However, you will need a few activities to keep little guests occupied and happy and the options are limitless. You can go with traditional favorites like hiding and seek or the pinata, but there are many other ways to entertain kids of all ages. If kids are old enough, try some fun crafts like playing with clay or let them decorate their cupcakes. They can play board games or other party games like Twister or musical chairs that involve everyone and appeal to toddlers and bigger kids. The options are endless, and the kids will have a blast.
Keep the food simple
If you want to throw a perfect birthday party for your little one at home, you don’t need to bother with the catering company or to make a 15-layer cake. All you have to do is to prepare the kids' favorites, and luckily, it's finger food. For younger kids, you can go with chicken fingers, prepare some mini peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and fruit. For bigger kids, you will never go wrong with pizza or hot dogs. If you want to show a little creativity, cut the hotdogs into interesting shapes, or make a spectacle of colorful or on-theme dishes. Stick with the kids' favorites and save yourself the time and hassle.
Make the goody bags
If you want your little guests to feel special and to remember your kid's birthday party, then don't forget to prepare goody bags. You can put together an awesome goody bag that won't cost you a lot but will make a huge difference. Find some inexpensive toys like kazoos, and you can also match them to the theme, even if you just used a particular color as a theme. This way, you will make sure that the birthday party for your little one is perfect and that every guest is happy.
A Birthday to remember
Throwing a perfect birthday party for your little one at home can be even more magical and special than one held at a fancy venue. If you want to make a memorable birthday party, the only thing you have to do is to make the birthday boy or girl feel special and loved and you can do that at home. Organizing kids' birthday party at home comes with many advantages, but you also have some planning to do. Now, we give you all the instructions you need for throwing an unforgettable birthday party at home, so go for it, and make your little one's birthday party unforgettable.
