Celebrating your child's first birthday is a big deal but it doesn't stop there. Many parents celebrate with elaborate parties for their first 10 birthdays. There are many elements to planning a child's birthday party. Starting with picking a theme: licensed characters, animals, sports, dress up or maybe just a simple color.
Will you have a house party or will you host your party at a location?
Invitations? Who will you invite? The whole class plus family friends or only a handful of his closest buddies?
Will you need to serve a meal? Not necessarily, try to throw a party between meal hours and you can get away with serving light snacks, cake and beverages.
How will you entertain the kids? Some locations will have built in entertainment value, such as bowling or arcade games. If you choose to host the party at your house get some ideas off pinterest based on your theme or contact a local company to come entertain the kids with balloon animals or a magic show.
Have your party favors and some of decor do double duty. Use a filled piñata with balloons attached as a centerpiece. Order pre-twisted balloon flowers and arrange in a container and every little girl can take one home.
