A couple of years ago, cake, ice cream and simple games would the recipe for the ultimate birthday party. They were affordable yet always fun. Nowadays, things have changed for the better – or perhaps the worse. Such a setting would no longer be enough for most kids and some adults. Birthday parties have grown into costly ventures held at fancy venues full of presents and expensive liquor.
Regatta Hotel shares some simple ways to make a birthday as fun-filled as possible without spending a fortune.
Choose a Creative Theme
A good party should revolve around a specific theme. This would determine the food, the decoration and dress code. Choosing something that delimits fancy presents will shape the budget without pointing fingers. Also, consider the venue. You can choose from a party venue in nearby hotels, so you won’t have to spend much on transportation.
Create a Fun-packed Schedule
Determine what will happen at the birthday party in advance. This will keep all the visitors busy and entertained. Such an audience will have no time to think of, let alone indulge, in pricey ventures that will bloat your budget.
Understand Your visitors
Taking the time to understand your audience’s definition of fun in advance will help you make all the right preparations. Some people would find computer games fun. An investment in a play station and some popcorn could be enough.
Others like dancing around, eating and playing real games. Organising a full-fledged fun day would cater for such an audience.
Involve the Key Players
Involving the important people in the planning and preparation gives a sense of belonging. This will take the burden of making the party fun off your shoulders. A couple of hands has a better chance at helping people have fun than you would on your own.
