When is the best kids birthday party time?
Hands down, it is on the weekend and a Saturday afternoon will reduce the amount of Feeding
you'll have to do. Schedule the party through lunch into the afternoon
if you want to cook a meal. Cake, snacks and combinations of store
bought and homemade 'Finger Foods' will keep it manageable.
With each of our Birthday parties we always try to reduce any extra preparations so we can get more time to enjoy the party.
Our first few parties for our kids that included 'outside of the
family' guests seemed to always run out of time. We would highly
recommend that you add an extra hour to the time frame you think will
work. A couple of times, parent pickup started before we even got to
the presents but we took pictures of the gifts with the birthday child
after the party and sent thank you cards with pictures of the gifts
given by each guest to make it special. We try to think in terms of 1
hour blocks of time for activities and sections of the party for the
best approximate party times. With each party we feel like we are
getting a bit better with froward planning out our kids birthday party
time, with practice we will improve with each kids birthday party.
Theme, Date, Party Location & Times, now our next kids party planning step is to...
Add Birthday Party Entertainment or Outside Entertainers for the Party.
Have an awesome Party!
