How to throw the best birthday without spending a million bucks, is what that title should read. My son had his 7th birthday get-together not long ago and in planning the occasion, I realized a few things. Now, I’m not one of those mothers who go all out on decorations and party favors. But I try to make the day special with little touches instead.
1. Balloons. I’ve always said it’s not a party in our house unless there’s balloons and my kids have come to expect waking up to a room full of helium color on their special day. This not only benefits the birthday kid, but every child invited. Because who doesn’t love balloons?
2. Invitations. Now our get-togethers are not large affairs. It’s mostly an afternoon spent with family. It’s still never a bad idea to send out invitations, however. Not only do they mark who, what, when, and where but it’s a beautiful way to remember the day. Luckily, I can get great deals on Vistaprint products, including birthday invitations.
3. Themes. As I said before, I’m not a stickler for decorations and detail, but I do like to tailor the theme of the party specifically for the child intended. The birthday before last for my son was all about The Avengers. This time, it was Angry Birds. Making it all about their favorite things is just another small way to make the day special.
The most important thing, though, is that your child has fun. Because when they look back on it, that’s really all they’re going to remember.
