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.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
