How to Throw a Memorable Children’s Party

Although it is not quite up there amongst the stresses of organizing a wedding, sorting out a children’s party is often still a logistical challenge. From catering, to specialist dietary requirements, to arranging entertainment, there are various things to consider when throwing a party.

Yet, despite being a lot of work, a party of this kind is something that will leave a lasting impression on your child. Plus the event doesn’t have to be an extravagant affair to be memorable – as long as it caters to the interests and tastes of the birthday boy/girl, they are sure to have a great time.

Read on for a few top tips on how to craft a children’s party to remember.

Get the word out there
The main thing for a successful party is guests, so it is important to send out invites to those that you want to attend. Posting the party info on social media leaves you open to requests from people you don’t want to come, so stick to delivering personal invitations. While you can purchase blank invitation templates, going with an online invitation maker is great if you’re looking to add some extra personal touches.
Although, do keep in mind the amount of guests you feel you can handle. It is important to trust your judgement with that aspect, as you don’t want to be overrun with too many kids!

Food for all
Food is an integral part of any party. You might think that, due to your audience being kids, the food won’t need to be anything special. While that is true to an extent, you should supply plenty of comfort food that impresses young palates. Think sausages, pizza, burgers, chips, etc. 
Also, the main focal point regarding food is no doubt the birthday cake. Purchasing a bespoke cake could well make a big impression, but a standard store bought cake should do the trick – especially if the party is for younger children.

Let the games begin
Having fun is what a children’s party is all about. Along with some music to keep things energetic, you should have plenty of games planned out in advance. Think of traditional activities such as a three-legged race, water balloon fights and a tug of war – stuff that can get everyone active and involved.
However, if you want to reach that next level with your entertainment, you will have to splash a bit of cash. Doing so means you could hire the likes of a bouncy castle, live DJ and professional performers (think clowns or magicians).  
Send them on their way
Now while your child is rightfully the center of attention when it’s their party, this doesn’t mean that you should disregard those that have attended the event. An ideal way of showing your appreciation for them turning up is by providing goody bags.
As for what to put in a goody bag, it doesn’t matter all that much – kids just love to receive any sort of treat! As a result, stick with inexpensive – yet fun – items like a bottle of bubbles, coloring pens and bags of sweets.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
