Your 5-Step Guide To Birthday Party Planning

The time for your toddler’s next birthday is here. It’s a big day for them, and it’s your responsibility to make that day special. When it comes to birthday party planning, your head is probably spinning with questions like “Where do I start?” or “What should I get done first?”

As party experts in Seattle, we know birthday party planning can be a daunting task, especially if it’s right around the corner. In this article, we’ll focus on learning about when you should start planning a birthday party, what type of events you could have, and a lot more.

So without further ado, let’s get started.

When Should You Start Planning a Birthday Party?

Well, there’s no one size fits all approach here. Over the years, we’ve seen parents plan their little ones big day months before and or even at a moment’s notice. In our opinion, it’s better to have everything planned out and ready to go at least a week before the event.

If you’re keen on playing parties yourself, you can follow the birthday party planning checklist to create a memorable experience.

Your 5-Step Birthday Party Planning Checklist

Birthday party planning can be a difficult task, but there’s no need to break a sweat over it. Just follow the steps below, and you’ll be good to go.

  1. Create a Budget

Birthday party planning can get a bit out of hand when you look at all the possibilities that are available. So, it’s important to have a budget beforehand. When you’re creating a budget, you’ll want to include everything from event arrangement to the icing on the cake (even that extra pack of Doritos).

2. Book an Ideal Venue

Now that you have a budget, it’s time to let the money do the talking. You’ll need to decide where you’re going to have the event. If you’re thinking “my backyard,” you might want to give it a second thought. The weather in Seattle can ruin outdoor events. Party Baby Seattle is a proud partner of different event venues in Seattle, and we can help find the perfect fit for you.

3. Choose A Party Theme

Your little ones big day is about them having fun with the their friends, right? As party experts, we know for a fact that the littles love to have a themed birthday party. It’s their chance to be Superman or Wonder Woman or dress up as Captain America and save the day! So, you’ll want to have a party theme that promotes an imaginative and playful environment.

4. Hire An Expert

Sometimes all the birthday party planning in the world can fall short, and believe it or not, booking your event with an expert can make all the difference. As toddler party experts in Seattle, we have the best birthday party packages to help you and your toddlers experience like never before.

5. Enjoy the Party

Now all you have to do is enjoy the party with the little ones. But before you do that, don’t forget to bring the cake, some popsicles, and a couple of other healthy birthday party snacks for toddlers. Trust me, they’ll want to load up on the carbs and protein after a good time in the bounce house.
