We take fun seriously
A birthday is a once-a-year occasion that should be joyously celebrated. The best way to enjoy and commemorate the date of a loved one’s birth is to gather family and close friends together for a party and indulge in all the joy, laughter, and love. Plenty of touching moments and beautiful memories are sure to be created during this special event.
Of course, before the revelries can begin, you will need to make all the necessary arrangements. Throwing a birthday party, especially for children, can be a lot of work as it entails careful planning, money-saving, organisation, and creativity to ensure that everybody has a good time.
Be that is it may, the process of putting together a grand birthday bash does not need to be too stressful.

Our highly experienced team has awesome ideas to help you out. Eight of these ideas for fuss-free birthday party planning are listed below.
Rule of thumb: Birthday party food should be easy to consume. Since birthdays should always be about the celebrants and guests all having fun together, it is best to go with simple yet satisfying party fare such as sausages, meatballs, sandwiches, baked treats, and different kinds of finger food.
Simple, easy-to-make food items are always a hit. But if you want to fancy them up a bit, you can pair them up with special gourmet dips and sauces and improve the presentation.
Make it easy for everybody to get the drinks they like by filling up galvanised buckets with ice sprinkled with salt. And make sure to tie a can opener to the bucket so nobody has to scavenge through kitchen drawers for one. Guests can just pick up a bottle, open it, and continue socialising.
You can purchase a large variety of canned and bottled beverages wholesale online. Remember to add a few unfamiliar brands into the mix to pique the interest of the guests. People, especially children, are always curious about beverages that they cannot find in their local grocers and convenience stores and will have fun sampling them.
Here’s an extra tip: Want some ideas for unique drinks to serve at your party? Check out Buzzfeed’s video on international sodas. Children will surely love the featured Japanese-brand sodas that come with toy elements.
Every party should have a welcome wagon. It can contribute to the celebratory vibe.
For an outdoor birthday party, you can hang a birthday streamer (which you can have printed on a tarp for an affordable price) between two trees and your guests will automatically know where the fun is at. You can take the guests’ pictures in front of the sign using a phone or a laptop camera, and send them the image through your thank-you email as a nice souvenir.
As fun as decorating your party venue yourself may seem, it can actually be a tiring job. Plus, there’s always the risk of spending more money than necessary because of failed attempts at DIY party decorations.
So, do not sweat stress over the physical setup for your child’s birthday party. Instead, hire the services of party decorators who will bring in great-looking decor and set everything up in no time.
A banging party soundtrack is important in creating a fun ambience for the event. Gather all the popular tunes you love, and ask your guests to contribute their favourite songs, too.
A playlist that has everybody’s beloved songs is definitely a crowd-pleaser. It may even encourage your guests to start dancing and singing with each other.
Goodie bags can help set a playful tone if you hand them out at the start of the party. Great items to put in goodie bags are bubbles (who doesn’t love them?), bubble gum, disposable cameras, and sparklers — all affordable little items. These goodie bags will make sure that the party will begin and end with fun.
Hook up a projector to a laptop and show a classic crowd-pleaser for everybody to watch on a white wall. This will keep guests entertained especially when there are other activities and party treats that still need to be prepared. “Little Rascal,” “Home Alone,” “My Girl,” “Stand by Me,” and “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” are some highly recommended films to show.
The secret to throwing a successful and memorable birthday party for your sweet little one is to make every aspect of it fun. So, do not fuss too much and wear yourself out by being too extravagant and doing everything on your own. Choose to be a gracious hostess and have a mighty good time.
