If we let kids plan birthday parties, each one would be “epic”. They would invite the entire class, anyone under 12 that lives in your suburb and the grocer down the road that sells their favourite ice cream. And a live Pokemon would jump out of the cake. Which would be made entirely of icing and fashioned into their favourite footy player. And the celebration would last until their next birthday. Oh, and each guest would take home a new puppy as a a party favour.
The finer points of negotiating the party planning aspects with the birthday child can feel a little bit like being poked repetitively and ferociously with a rusty fork; and guest lists are often first on the agenda. So, here are a couple of loose guidelines to get you through to the fun parts. (Like choosing decorations, menu options and themes, as well as your wine list for the evening after):
Birthday parties are meant to be fun - not just for your child, but also for you, the host. With a little forward planning (and a lot of wine following) you can leave the guest invite stress behind and focus on the sound of oohs and ahhs coming from your fabulous shindig.
