A New Mom's Survival Guide to Planning a Birthday Party

As a parent, it is only natural for you to want to provide for nothing but the best for your child. As a new mom, the pressures of planning the perfect birthday party can be even more nerve-wracking. Not only do you want to make the event special for your first born, but you also want to make sure his/her friends have fun. Here are a few things you want to take into consideration to survive the party planning ordeal :


1.Picking the Right Venue

A Birthday Party Venueis the first decision you will have to make when planning your child’s big day. This will allow you to determine the size and scale of the event along with the possible themes you can work with. Find a venue that is kid friendly and and can accommodate all your guests. Indoor play areas prove to be an excellent venue choice. They are designed to maximize fun while offering a highly safe environment for kids to freely enjoy themselves. Furthermore, they allow the flexibility of hosting parties of all sizes.


2.Picking the Right Time

Depending on the age of your child and his friends, you may want to a pick a time that doesn’t clash with their naptime or a critical meal. The slot after nap time and before dinner is the best, when the guests do not expect a full meal and the kids are at their peak energy levels and can enjoy their playtime.


3.Start Planning Early

Make sure you take into account the extra time needed to hunt for supplies, sending out “save the dates” and discussing the nitty-gritty’s with the party organizers. If you choose to host your child’s birthday at an indoor play area, you will be able to work with a coordinator who can help you source theme-based supplies, create digital invitations and even help you with identifying the most appropriate party favors within your budget. All you will have to do is show up for the party!


If you are daunted with the process of planning a birthday party for your kid for the first time, involving coordinators at an indoor play area can significantly make the process a stress-free one. Hosting your first big event for your child at an indoor play center can open doors to a fun and memorable experience for your kid and his/her friends.
