What many people miss about being children, past the lessened need for responsibility, is the fact that many people throw a fuss about them. As a child, there is nothing more important to understand you are loved. Past material possessions, the amount of sugar you let them eat, and how lenient you are with their bedtime (all should be given in moderation to make them into good people,) is the necessity to give them memories they will remember and enjoy.
What better way to do this than to make a giant, huge and loving event out of your child’s birthday party?
Here a few places you can make the most of this.
The invitations you send your guests go a long way in making them appreciate the significance of your event. Sometimes, telling them in person doesn’t cut it. If you’re to treat your child’s birthday as the landmark event, it is. What’s more is that you needn’t hand cut the invitations out of silk and have them delivered by doves to make a memorable invite.
You can craft personal, beautiful and more importantly very reasonably priced themed invitations using a professional service such as Pure Invitation to craft the most heartfelt invitations you can/ Adding this degree of refinement in asking people to attend your party not only makes the event seem more ‘official,’ but shows the loving hand you’re willing to extend to the rest of the party, to your child and to those attending.
What is the temperament of your child? Are they interested in swimming? Why not host a swimming party? Are they a generally happy go lucky child with a birthday party in the summer? Why not hire a bouncy castle and some form of entertainment to go along with it? If you understand the way your child likes to play and behave, and also the temperament of their friends, you’ll understand how to best give your child the party they really want. This tailoring approach helps you seem aware and loving as a parent, which is of course what you really are.
Make them feel special
Make this your child’s special day by taking the time to sit them aside at the party and tell them how much you love them, how proud you are for them, and that you hope this party is nothing but completely enjoyable. You have gone to the effort to provide a beautiful day for your child, so let them know exactly how much they mean to you while you’re having fun.
Keep it to close friends
Sometimes, the largest party is not the best. Inviting many guests to your party to bolster numbers might not only be unnecessary, but in an effort to do so you might invite children from the same year group who will only serve to be boisterous and overbearing, taking the attention away from your child. Give your child some say over who comes to their party, and use your best judgment based on what they say. Sometimes a close-knit, enjoyable affair is much more pleasant than a huge party with the express intent to look impressive.
Use this simple tidbits of advice to give your child the party they really deserve.
