Kids Birthday Party Venues Rental Guide

Children love birthday parties but let’s be honest: adults love throwing their bundle of joy a fantastic celebration even more! Birthday parties allow kids to have fun with their friends outside of school, experience something new and unique, as well as celebrate a big milestone! If you’re thinking of throwing one for your child, the options are endless. You can either host a big feast where both family and friends will be invited or consider throwing two separate gatherings for each group. It all depends on your guest list, budget and preferences. To help you create a one-of-a-kind birthday party, we’ve put down a few tips and tricks that you might find helpful.


Tips & Tricks for a Great Kids Birthday Party:

A theme. Picking one can be helpful when choosing the decorations you’ll need to buy, as well as what kind of food to prepare that’ll match it. But a theme also makes the party lots of fun! There are tons of them that you can choose for your child’s birthday party - it all depends on their preferences and interests. You can either go for a superhero-themed event or one inspired by their favorite cartoon, animated movie or book.

Decorations. You’ve already got a theme, so you can’t forget about the decorations to go with it! You can either buy some, such as paper plates, cups, napkins, cutouts and balloons with the same motif or prepare the embellishments yourself. In the latter case, you can ask your child to help you with preparing them which will only make the whole experience even more special. Confetti, garlands, banners and many more will (hopefully) fill all of the partygoers with joy and make them extra ready to celebrate. A good idea would be to go for decorations that the guests can take home with them as party favors. This will not only remind them of the fun they had at a party but also be a nice step towards their awareness about ecology.

Choose crafts that double as favors. Since we’re already on the topic of favors, why not prepare crafts to do during the party and then bring them home as a little souvenir? It can be extra entertainment and eliminates the problems posed by goody bags that will need to be prepared on top of all the other arrangements. If you think it will cost you a lot of effort, we can assure you: it won’t. The easiest way to come up with something cool and related to the theme of your kid’s birthday party is to type ‘blank’ or ‘DIY’ on any party-supply website and see the results. You can either buy materials from there or just get inspired, go to your local stationery store and get things you’ll need.

Entertainment. Planning fun games and activities (such as crafts) before the party is a must-have! It will ensure that kiddos stay busy and you won’t have to come up with ideas on the spot. If you’re lost for entertainment options and need some inspiration, feel free to browse the internet as much as possible. There are plenty of websites where you’ll be able to find unique and absorbing activities. You can also ask the source closest to you - your child - about games that they played at other birthday parties and loved. And in case you don’t have a strict budget, consider hiring a professional entertainer for your celebration who will not only take the strain off of your shoulders but also ensure that everyone has lots of fun.

Food and cake. Kids are quite often picky eaters, so we suggest you prepare colorful finger food and snacks for your party. A buffet for them to graze on is a great option for children as they’ll probably be constantly on the go during the whole party and will only have time to eat between games and other activities. If you want to smuggle in healthy food, cut out fruit in funny shapes or make smiley faces from veggies on the plates. Another very important aspect of any kids party is the birthday cake! It should look good and taste good. Think of getting a cake that matches the theme of the party and has the birthday person’s name written on it. Or go for a rainbow one decorated with colorful sprinkles. You can make it yourself or have a professional do one, but one thing is certain: plan it in advance!

These are just some of the things that’ll hopefully help you with organizing your kid’s birthday party and get you inspired to hold an amazing celebration. Just remember to give yourself enough time to plan everything in order to avoid any stress and last-minute preparations. Have a careful look around the city, compare venues and pick the one that ticks all of your boxes. Once you’ve secured the place, the rest should be a walk in the park and before you know it, the date of your party will come.
