Tips In Holding A Successful Children's Party At Home

We've recently attended the first birthday celebration of the cute son of my nephew which was held in their house.  Of course, as usual, aside from the yummy dishes laid down on the buffet table, the guests especially the kids are always looking forward to fun and entertainment.  Children parties whether it's first or 7th birthday, usually have clowns and magicians to host the games and entertain the kids and in most cases, dancing will never be omitted. This is the reason why it is very important to have a reliable sound system on hand.  


Here are few tips to holding a successful children's party:

First, you have to make your party decors simple yet attractive.  If you don't have enough budget to hire an event stylist, you can make your own decors using simple and plain materials like papers, styro materials, ribbons and strings.  You could also make use of what's available at home.  

Second, foods should be a perfect balance of pasta or noodles, rice, few main courses, fruits, cakes and other desserts.  You may also want to install some food carts for the kids to keep them going all throughout the party.

Third, you have to get a good party host that could provide a perfect hosting plus a showcase a simple form of entertainment for the kids.  It's quite hard to keep the attention of the kids so they should be properly entertained all throughout.

Fourth, you have to provide a good sound system and have this tested before the event to avoid some technical problems.  A good sound system is always the heart of any party so this should be given special attention.

Fifth and the last, always make sure that the guests especially the kids are always on the safe zone.  It is but normal that misadventures will happen during parties like this where kids behaviour cannot be controlled all the times.  Everything must be in proper places and argosy speaker stands should be positioned properly and away from the area where kids run non stop.  Electrical outlets should be properly secured and checked for possible faulty wirings.

It is better to be safe than sorry.  Not taking these into consideration may spoil the fun and this translates to having all your efforts for the preparation wasted.

Party Table Centerpiece

We've done these cute party table center pieces for a client last April 12, during the 7th birthday celebration of her son Nash.  There are two sizes of tables, one for the adult guests and another one which is smaller for kids.  So, we have to come up with two sets of design for center pieces, as well.  


This design was used as a center piece for the adult table.  Since the party theme is Lego, we try to maintain the presence of the Lego characters but since the table is intended for the adults, we incorporate some twigs in a clear vase for an added drama.


For the kiddie table, we just manage to have a smaller version of the center piece minus the twigs. We retain the Lego characters though and the colorful pom-pom. The printed name of the celebrant was still included to add a personal touch.  We made a mini version for the kids table since the table is much smaller and we don't like the idea that the table would appear to be congested.  You know, kids are very playful so we have to lessen the objects or display on the table. :) 



This is the up close version of the adult table center piece.  It came out so cute and colorful that it really matches the party theme.  We are very pleased to know that our client and her guests were satisfied with the designs that we've came up with. 

This is very easy to do and all it takes is just a little sense of creativity plus hard work as making pompoms is also quite tedious if you need to come up with many.  But if you love arts and crafts, this is very easy.

You can have this design for your your future parties and change the cartoon character print outs to stay within the theme.
