In this blog post, we will go over the dos and don'ts of having a birthday celebration. From what type of food to serve, to what games to play, we have you covered!

1. DO send your invitations out early 

Yes, we're talking a month in advance. People are preoccupied and less inclined to say yes if it's Monday and your party is planned for this Saturday. This is especially true when it comes to holidays or summer, when family trips abound. And if there are many children in the class whose birthdays are close together, you'll want to take advantage of this!

2. DO  keep it simple

The greatest present we can give our children is to be in the moment with them and pay attention to them.

Keeping birthday celebrations simple is the greatest approach to stay focused on spending time with our children and remaining in the moment. It's vital to keep things under control as well as not overstimulate our kids.

3. DO include an RSVP date

Giving people a specific date by which to respond, as well as a means of contacting you, is an art that has been lost, similar to delivering a handwritten thank you note, but offering individuals a deadline by which to RSVP, and a method for reaching you, should encourage them to go!

4. DO communicate with your venue and your entertainers

“The more you know” is not only a public service announcement; it's also essential to a successful birthday party. Give performers some information about your child before the event if you are hiring one.

Let performers know if the birthday child is really shy, so they don't put him/her on the spot. Any allergies should also be discussed.

5. DO leave time for kids to just play

Kids want time to play together when they are in a group.

Allow the birthday kid to mingle with his or her friends. They want to let go and have a good time. Keep in mind that it's a party.

6. Don’t feel like you have to open presents in front of everyone

Parents should not feel obligated to display all of their children's presents in front of everyone.

After the birthday event, the youngster be given the chance to open one present each day. This is generally their natural pace, as you've seen a child open gifts. They check it out and then want to play with it.

7. DON’T give out goodie bags filled with useless stuff

Can we all agree to avoid those ridiculous, low-quality gadgets that every party store sells? Honestly, most parents don't keep most of it around long after their kids get home.

Instead of going out and buying a bunch of rubbish, give one thing that symbolizes the party's theme, such as a box of colorful Band-Aids for a doctor party or a light saber for a Star Wars event. You'll spend about the same amount, and the kids will most likely use it.

8. Don’t waste the day making it

It's your kid's day, not the cake's! If food isn't the centerpiece of the event, don't spend hours on it when you could be having fun with your child!
