Birthday is the most precious day of every child and the parents try to make this day even more precious and memorable for their dear ones. In this article we are discussing about how we can plan a great birthday party for our kids which they will never forget till their next birthday.

Everybody like Birthday parties especially the kids not only because they got lots of gifts but they also enjoy these parties a lot with their friends and family. There are many birthday party themes which you can use to celebrate your kids birthday, but first you have to take care of some most important things before planning the theme birthday party for your kids.

Checklist for Birthday Party

1. Prepare your guest list this will give you the idea that for how much people you have to arrange the food and sitting arrangements. Ask your Kid also that whom he wants to invite.

2. Decide the venue for the Birthday party keeping in mind your guest list, the venue should be easily approachable and sufficient space for the entire guest you are inviting.

3. Send the invitation; this is the most important part of your planning as this is the first interaction of yours with guest. Try to send the self made invitation cards (according to your birthday party theme which we will discuss later) this will attract your guest and they will understand the event better.

4. Order cake for your party; take the help of your child to decide what type of cake he or she wants to have. Again check your guest list to decide the quantity of Birthday cake. Choose the cake which has some good shape like favorite cartoon character, animal or any other shape of your child.

5. Order other food items which you want to serve with the cake like wafers, toffees, cold drinks, biscuits, sweets or any other eatables (birthday menu for kids) which you can serve as a complimentary with cake. Use disposable items like paper plates, paper cups, tissues to serve this will save your time.

6. Arrange some Entertainment programs for kids' birthday like magic show, puppet show, dance competition, fancy dress competition or anything else which can entertain the children as well as the adults also.

7. Plan some games for kids and their parents like dumb charades, memory games, find the treasure etc which will keep your guests occupied and they will enjoy the birthday party.

8. Do not forget to give return gifts to the kids who came for the birthday party. Choose the gifts depending on the age of the invited kids.

9. Arrange prizes for the winner kids as well losers so that they will feel special.

10. Photography and Video can make this day memorable for many years. So do not forget to arrange the photographer for your kid birthday party.

11. Last but not the least always take care of the Child safety measures

Do not forget to involve the birthday kid in your birthday planning chores as your kid is the one for whom you are doing all this so his or her choice is equally important and plan everything according to your budget as over budget can ruin the enjoyment of the party.

If you think that you cannot handle or organize the birthday party, at your own than you can hire some event management company which will take your all burden on their shoulder and make your day memorable and enjoyable.
