Hi, I’m Teri, and in this segment, we’re going
to talk about how to plan a child’s birthday party. Now a child’s birthday party, if done
right, is something they’ll remember for years, something very special to them, so let’s do
it right. My best advice to you is to choose a theme, and stick with that theme and incorporate
it in everything that you do with this party. Write down, starting with of course, the invitations.
Now the example I’m going to use is a princess party for a young girl. Maybe between the
ages of about five to ten. So you can buy your own invitations. Disney sells some great
princess invitations, or you can print your own up on the computer, very inexpensively.
Now in the invitation, it’s a great idea to invite the other children to dress up like
their favorite princess, or if there’s boys coming, their favorite prince. And then, write
down, from the plates, the napkins, the cups, you want to try to follow that princess theme,
and then when it comes to times when you want to play games with the kids, use and incorporate
that princess theme in the games, as well. And it doesn’t have to be difficult. For example,
Duck, Duck, Goose, could now be step-sister, step-sister, step-sister, Cinderella. And
instead of Pin the Tail on the Donkey, it could be Pin the Tiara on the Princess, or
instead of Musical Chairs, it could be Musical Thrones. Those are a few examples right there,
and then gift bags, you can just buy some simple little um…these are wings, these
are gem rings, tiaras, colorful suckers, get a nice decorative bag. Place these all in
there, and voila! You have some great goody bags as well, for the kids to take home. Memories
from your princess party, and that is how to plan a wonderful children’s birthday party.
