The Venue

First, you should think about where you are throwing your birthday party. You can think about throwing the party at home if you have enough space and the time to set everything up. Alternatively, you could also choose a professional venue. The right venue can be more beneficial because they will typically sort everything out for you. This means that you don’t have to worry about getting stressed planning the different decorations as well as other elements. It will all be taken care of and handled perfectly.

When you choose a venue, you will also be able to explore different activities. For instance, you can think about going bowling or even planning a trip to a laser quest arcade. These are two of the classic choices but there are plenty of others that could be perfect for you as well. It’s definitely worth thinking about the type of activities that your kid enjoys and that you think will be a big hit at their birthday party.

The Food

Next, you should consider the food for your child’s birthday party. You could be bold here and make the cake yourself. If so, then we recommend that you look at a few different cookbooks and designs online. Most are easy to follow as long as you follow the steps down to a tee and ensure that you have the right ingredients, to begin with. You might want to look at a fondant recipe so that you have a delicious covering for your cake. It’s also worth completing a few trial runs to ensure that you feel comfortable creating the cake and you don’t have to resort to getting a store-bought one.

If you are strapped for time when preparing the food, then it does make sense to opt for buffet food choices. This can easily be prepared and you will be able to serve it hot or cold. It also allows party guests to pick and choose what they want to eat. So, as long as you serve quite a wide variety you also won’t have to panic about different diet preferences and requirements either.

Or, if you are inviting quite a large group of guests, then you want something that’s easy to dish out. Bolognese is an easy option because it’s quite simple to prepare and you can cook as much as you want, even filling multiple pots.


What about the entertainment for your kid’s birthday party? If you are holding it at a venue, then there’s not going to much need to worry about this too much. It’s likely that entertainment options will be included. However, if you are holding a party at home, then you might need to think about choosing your entertainment. There are lots of choices worth considering here.

For instance, you might want to think about hiring a magician or a stage performer. You could also consider using a DJ. It largely depends on the age of your child and their specific preferences. If you sit down with them, then you’ll soon find the perfect choice that is going to dazzle them and their friends.

Alternatively, you could hire an activity such as a bouncy castle. This can be great fun for the children as well as the adults!

The Guest List

Finally, you need to make sure that you think about choosing the right guests for your kid’s first party. There are a few ways that you can go with this. For instance, you might want to think about inviting their whole class. This isn’t always the best idea because it’s possible that your child doesn’t get on with everyone in their class. They might be more comfortable with a party that includes the friends they’re closest to.

We hope this helps you understand some of the key elements that you do need to get right when you are planning your kid’s first birthday party. Remember, this is always going to be an opportunity to have fun and be a little creative. You can come up with some unique decorations and even think about theming the entire birthday party to ensure that it feels completely fresh and unique.
