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.

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
