Planning the Ultimate Children’s Backyard Birthday Party

Planning the Ultimate Children’s Backyard Birthday Party

Warmer weather is on the way, which means fun in the sun, barbecues, and backyard parties! As the seasons change, now is a great time to start planning your child’s birthday party.

Here are a few tips to bring this party together:

Get the Word Out Early

If your child’s birthday occurs over the summer, be sure to notify their friends and parents before school lets out. Many people have a variety of summer plans like vacations, camps, and other things. Even if everyone cannot attend the party be sure to let them know before their summer plans get fully booked. Print out paper invitations and have your child distribute them at school, then follow-up over the summer with their parents via email/text.

Set Up

Hosting a party in your backyard can be quite easy with the right preparations. Make sure your backyard is clean by clearing away any leaves or debris. You should also make sure there is an easy way for guests to get to your bathroom. If you have to rearrange some furniture in our home that is fine but make sure they will be able to find it with ease. If you will be grilling on a barbecue pit be sure it is out of the way of anything flammable and has enough space, so the children won’t bump into it. Be sure to set up a snack table for guests to enjoy while they wait for the barbecue to be ready.
