Planning a birthday party for your little one? Between work, making lunches every day, shuttling everyone to ballet and soccer, you might not know where to start!Top 10 Check List for Your Child’s Birthday Party

Here’s an easy ten-step checklist of things you’ll need for your child’s birthday party.

  1. A theme: Let your child choose her favorite theme. Whether she’s into a specific character, like Dora the Explorer, or is enthusiastic about a more general theme, like dinosaurs or pirates, let her guide the way.
  2. A venue: You may choose a fun venue like a farm, bowling alley or ice cream parlor, or you can choose to have the party in the comfort of your own home (especially if it has a backyard for the kids to play).
  3. A time and date: Make sure key guests, like your child’s best friends, can attend before setting a date.
  4. Invitations: Online services like Paperless Post will let you design your own invitations while being kind to the environment.
  5. Entertainment: Ask your child what she would prefer –a magician or a balloon artist, perhaps? Make sure you book well in advance to avoid disappointment.
  6. Party favors: Fill gift bags with fun trinkets all kids will love, like bubble wands.
  7. Decorations: Decorate with colorful balloons, as well as cardboard cutouts and other decorations that fit your party’s theme.
  8. Munchies: Plan your menu about three weeks in advance, and fill it with kid-friendly favorites like pizza and hot dogs. Don’t forget to order or bake a cake!
  9. Drinks: The kids will enjoy punch made with fresh juices, which could also go into a signature cocktail for the adults.
  10. Games and activities: Fun activities like pony rides, bounce houses and face painting are all available through New Joy Entertainment. Give us a call today at 908-376-9375 to find out more about how we can make your child’s birthday a day to remember!
