After organizing few DIY and themed birthday parties, now I have some experience on organizing birthday parties especially for kids making them exciting about their party and the birthday celebration. Some people think small kids, especially those babies who celebrate their first birthday don’t really understand or they don’t actually enjoy it. It is wrong. It is an excuse for some who don’t want to organize a birthday party. With my experience, I found DIY birthday party is the best way to celebrate it with the kid.At the time I was planning our kid’s first birthday party,he enjoyed much with the decorations and other party activities regardless his age.Now as a preschooler,he really enjoys his Birthday celebrations and his friends’ celebrations.You can also read more tips on this post on how to throw a first birthday party which I found many useful tips for my DIY Birthday parties.

Here are few tips for you to organize a DIY birthday party which your kid would love to talk for long time.

Select a theme

You need to have a theme for your kid’s birthday party. If you search online, you’ll find tons of birthday party themes. But, don’t go for a birthday party theme which you like. Instead, be on alert of your kid’s interests. If your kid is above age 3, then sure they will suggest the party theme. If your kid is a toddler or infant, then decide a theme with his interests.

For our first birthday party, we decided animal theme because my son loved animal songs and animal toys. For his second birthday, we decided train theme simply because of his interest on his train toys and some YouTube nursery rhymes which feature a train(Bob the Train). Both times, my son enjoyed the party, his cake and decorations.Our Pororo themed birthday party was a hit when the kid was three years old.

Create DIY decorations and Birthday party invitations

Once you decide the birthday party theme then decide on the decorations. DIY decorations are always beautiful and unique. You can create birthday banner, birthday invitations, door banner and other decorations according to your theme.

Children are smart and quick learners these days. They observe a lot at other parties. So their expectations for celebrations are normal. And as a mom the job gets tougher as we have to work on newer themes. Loved how vividly you have presented the ideas here. The cake train is novel!

Love diy birthday party or any gathering. It not only put your creativity to test but also your patience. Your work definitely reflects your love for the celebrant. Sometimes, though, time hinders us to consider diy. But I guess if we involve everyone, it will be a lot more fun and easier.

I love DIY parties.. I did that several times for my nieces and nephews.. actually I'm the one who volunteer and probably more excited than the celebrants haha.. I just love how it tests your creativity and sometimes your resourcefulness while giving justice to the kind of theme they want!' love that cake train by the way
