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.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
