A child’s age milestone is something to be celebrated, and birthday parties have become more and more elaborate over the years. Parents wanting the best for their children shell out some serious cash in order to commemorate their child’s natal day. If you’re feeling extra, you can pull off an enjoyable but inexpensive party with advanced planning and DIY projects to offset the costs of decors and other expensive stuff.
There are a lot of things to consider when it comes to planning a kid’s birthday party. Firstly, if you’re going to organize a party, it is recommended to pick an age-appropriate theme so all the elements will be cohesive. Think about the guest list and how many of your child’s playmates you want to invite, plus their parent or guardian. You also need to think about the venue and book it ahead of time.
Invitations are a formal way to let your guests know that you’ll be having a get-together. Most people are opting to text, email, or use social media for that. However, if you want a personalized paper invite, remember that it will cost money too. Take note of the food and drinks too, and make sure these are appealing to both children and adults.
As for cake and desserts, you’ll save up more if you bake and make them yourself. Then there are decorations such as streamers and backdrops and matching cups, plates, and napkins. You’ll also need to think about the games that the children will play and the prizes they’ll compete for. And lastly, if you don’t want your guests to leave empty-handed, then you’ll also need party favors.
The costs vary for the majority of the things needed to pull off a kid’s birthday party. Check out the infographic below.
