3 Ways to Rock Your Home Birthday Party!

Are you ready to plan the best home birthday party ever? Whether your kids birthday party is at home or at a venue, here are the three key elements you need for a rockin’ party.

(1) Pick an Activity!

The most important part to any kid’s birthday party is planning an activity that the kids can do together!  Try to pick an idea that will keep children interacting with each other rather than scattered over a large area.

This could be something simple or something that takes a lot of planning.  However, this activity will be the highlight of your at home birthday party & will probably be the only thing kids remember about the day.

Make sure you pick an activity that appeals to the birthday child & the age range of guests.  Once you’ve chosen your activity, organize it in a way that will be easy for the kids to do & that it has an adult overseeing the fun.

(2) Plan For Rain or Hot Weather

Most at home birthday parties are hosted outside.  Don’t let the weather rain on your day!  Plan for hot weather or rain by renting tents to shield your guests from the elements.  Ideally, you’d like one area to house the food, drinks, tables and chairs with a separate tent to put the kid activities under.  This gives you the recipe to success no matter what mother nature throws your way.

Need tents? Search for a local business on google

(3) Have Enough Seating

Make sure to plan for your guests comfort. Seating is the key to getting your older guests to relax & have a great time. Ideally, you’d love to have a chair for each adult guest.  This can be broken up into many different seating options, including tables & chairs, picnic tables, benches, lounge chairs or outdoor couches.
