Birthdays are the one day a year that is completely all about us. We get to be a little selfish on our birthdays and get things we wouldn't otherwise get on a normal day. We get to have a big cake, presents, and a birthday party where all our friends and family members are to celebrate us! What could be better than that? Well, while all of this sounds great, planning it isn't always the easiest of tasks, which is why those of us at Designs by Guzzardos in Chicago, IL put together this birthday party planning guide to make things a little bit easier for those of you planning a birthday party this August!
To start off your birthday party planning, you'll need to pick a theme and/or color scheme. Once you've selected your theme, it's time to start decorating! The All Wrapped Up can fit a number of themes and will make for a beautiful and fun centerpiece! Get creative with your theme, this flower arrangement would work wonderfully with a red circus theme, a fiesta, a Disney Mickey/Minnie Mouse theme, or even an ice cream party! The ideas are infinite, you've just got to pick the one that best fit you!
Food. Food is an essential part to every party. When planning your birthday party, think about the theme you've chosen and try your best to incorporate that into your menu. If you're planning a fiesta themed birthday party, consider serving Spanish dishes, or if you're planning a circus theme, have popcorn, peanuts, animal crackers, candy apples, or corndogs and burgers.
While birthday parties are always about us, the birthday girl/boy, party favors are a great way for us to thank our friends and family for celebrating our special day with us. When planning a birthday party, a small goodie bag or party favor for your guests to bring home or use at the party will put a smile on their face and make everyone feel included in the celebration! Candy is always a great place to start when choosing what goes into your party favors, particularly for a kid's birthday party. Remember to tie in the theme of the party one final time in the party favors. For a Star Wars theme, you might want to think about a glow stick as the light saber or a deck of cards for a magic show themed party. When planning a birthday party, get creative, the party favors don't need to be too expensive or extravagant, just a fun way of thanking your guests for attending.
Birthday parties are filled with fun and joy for everyone involved in the celebration, though, planning a birthday party isn't always as fun as the party itself. There's so many factors to consider when party planning but making sure you keep your focus on the theme will make planning significantly easier. A party starts with the idea of a theme and that theme should be spread all throughout the party. We, at Designs by Guzzardos in Chicago, IL hope our advice and suggestions helped and are always ready to help in any way possible with all your party planning needs.
