Throwing a Kids’ Birthday Party

Posted in Uncategorized
Thursday April 12th, 2018 •

We all want the best for our children. We love it when our friends gush about how cute they are—even more when they say “nagmana sa’yo!” So it’s no surprise if you find yourself stressing over your child’s upcoming birthday party. But hey, relax. Pause for a while and get your ducks in a row. Here are a few tips that will help you pull a seamless, memorable, and successful kiddie party with minimum strain.

Build on a Theme

First things first—the party theme. If you’ve got to start somewhere, start with the theme. Consider the ones that reflect your child’s likes and personality. Cars, Barbie dolls, dinosaurs—the best thing about throwing a children’s party is that you can play with the most out-of-this-world themes. Just make sure it’s something your child would like. After all, it’s technically their party. And once you’ve decided on a theme, the rest should roll in, from decorations to dress code.

Set the Date

Do it ASAP. You want people to come and celebrate this special occasion with you and your child. So the earlier you send out invites, the more likely it would be for guests to block their schedules and make it on that date. Here’s a tip, create an event page on Facebook, where you can post updates and teasers about the upcoming birthday party. That way, you won’t have to set all the details on stone just yet. With just your theme and date, you can go ahead and send invites on Facebook. After all, its 2018, even the folks who live under a rock have a Facebook account.

Choose an All-in-One Venue

Booking a party venue is one thing, but you also have to take care of everything that you should fill it up with including the set-up, food and drinks, decors, and the list would go on. So rather than braving all of these on your own, choose a venue that comes with the assistance of an expert team, such as in Discovery Suites Manila. You heard that right, their function rooms and events team can not only host elegant weddings, debuts, and reunions, but also really fun kiddie parties. Aside from the picture-perfect views from their function rooms, and food that’s to die for, their party experts will help you every step of the way, until you pull that unforgettable birthday party you’ve always wanted for your child.

Be on the Pictures

On your child’s “big day,” you’d probably want to capture every second of it. And a few years later, you would regret taking all those pictures instead of being in them. So don’t make that mistake; be in the pictures. Designate the task to a professional photographer, or a friend who loves his or her “inaanak” enough to happily do it for you. And while there will certainly be a whole lot of orchestrated photo ops, tell them to take more candid photos to really capture the moment. After all, that’s the whole reason behind collecting the pictures.

Give Yourself a Pat on the Back

A job well done comes with an exhausted you. By the time your child’s birthday party ends, you would need some R&R. So why don’t you go ahead and check-in at a hotel, make yourself a nice hot bath, lay in the bed, and order some room service. If you’re throwing your child’s birthday party at Discovery Suites, head right over to your own suite where the kids have enough room to play, and you have your own bedroom to relax and pat yourself on the back.

  • COMFORTABLE HOME AWAY FROM HOME. I stayed in the Discovery suites hotel for 7 weeks in March and April while in Manila for work.
