Birthday Parties: Five Shared Characteristics Of The Best Parties

Five Characteristics Of The Best Birthday Parties

For a young child, there isn’t an event more monumental than their own birthday party. For one day each year, for better or for worse, the whole universe revolves around them. They are surrounded by friends with presents along with cake and ice cream.

As a parent, however, throwing the party is more difficult. There is pressure to put together the perfect party, not just for your child, but also to become the pinnacle parent to other parents. You wouldn’t think an event that features screaming children and endless amounts of sugar would be this important. In today’s post, Rocky Mount Event Center will look at five shared characteristics of the best birthday parties.

  1. Great Invitations

One very underrated aspect of birthday parties are the invitations. While it may seem insignificant, a great themed invitation will be a great party favor for your child and their guests. Make it interactive, as well. Don’t just give a boring RSVP notice. You should look for any and all ways to make the party one to remember and invitations are a great starting point.

  1. A Robust Guest List

When we say “robust,” we mean “as many friends as you can fit into the venue.” Obviously, there are some parameters and limitations, but having a large group of friends invited will not only help your child build relationships with a larger group of people, but it will help other kids connect with each other. As the saying goes, the more the merrier.

  1. The Best Cakes and Goodies

The food that is served at these parties is always a major factor. For older kids, that food might look like pizza or grilling burgers. But for younger children, they care about two food groups: cake and ice cream. We’ll be honest with you. You probably won’t have a cake that tops presents as the favorite part of your child’s birthday parties. However, a customized cake with their favorite colors or character — that just so happens to be delicious — will be something to remember.

And don’t forget the goodies! You want your child to have a great time, but you also want their friends to have a memorable experience. Giving away goodie bags at birthday parties is a great way to do that.

  1. A Unique Activity

Your child will attend quite a few birthday parties in his younger years and many of them will include similar games and activities. If you want their party to be truly special, plan a unique activity that goes beyond the normal party conquests. A few things that come to mind:

  • Ziplining
  • Trampoline Park
  • Scavenger hunts

You will do a lot at a birthday party, but everybody remembers the activity.

  1. No Adult Seriousness

This one is difficult, we know. Being around a group of screaming kids for a few hours is tiresome, but the best way to host great birthday parties for your children is to embrace your childhood whimsy for those few hours. You’ll have time to rest later.
