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.
If you are creative enough, then you know how to create DIY birthday party decors. But, most of the time it is easy to buy printable party decorations. Once you buy printable party decorations, then you only need to customize it with your kids name and print it. Your themed party decorations are ready in few minutes.
Check for Cake designs and food ideas
When you have a theme for the birthday,it is easy to select the cake design.If you contact a cake decorator,they will show you tons of ideas suit to your theme.Otherwise,you can also make your own cake and decorate it with matching theme.I sometimes order birthday cakes.For some birthdays,I decorated store bought cakes with simple cake toppers.Cake toppers are easy to buy if the theme is related to toys.Otherwise you can easily make some DIY cake toppers for birthday.
For food ideas,you can easily check online.Kids love candy and sweets.Other than that colourful fruits will make the birthday table beautiful.To make the dessert table match with the theme,use some figures or toppers with your theme in between food plates.That will be really cute and will create a beautiful dessert table!
When you are ready with all these ideas,it is time to order and start planing your DIY kids birthday party!
