by Anita Kearney on August 9, 2013

Let’s be honest, parents, at this age the extravagant birthday parties are mainly about you. Whether it is social standing, or an attempt to one-up a neighbor or relative we tend to go overboard on a party that mainly entertain the adults. At this tender age kids are pretty much satisfied with ice cream, cake and pizza as long as they can play and have fun with friends.

There are parents who spend $1000.00 or more on a 1st birthday party with clowns (that the kids are afraid of) and animals( again most kids are afraid of these too) just to be able to brag about it to their friends. If you really want to make an impression on others and have a fun, easy and economical party, follow these tips…


Children’s Birthday Party Ages 1- 5

1. Decide on a theme- Themed parties are trending right now. Most party rental companies have inflatables for just about everything, Mickey Mouse, Sponge Bob and Transformers can be had for about the same price as non-themed inflatables.

2. Don’t wait until a week before to start planning – Many companies that carry bounce houses and other inflatables usually only have one of each. You must reserve it early so that you are sure to get it on the date you need it. Also finding or making the costume for your themed birthday party may take a bit of time. Children’s entertainers all book clients well in advance.

3. Do you have the room – Contact the companies well in advance to get the measurements for the item you want to have. Measure your space carefully and consider other logistics like can it fit through the space leading to the back yard and will you need a generator. This last is especially important if you are having a birthday party in a park.

4. Reviews are important – You are relying on these people to arrive and set up so that your party starts on time and to be helpful and courteous. Reading reviews from other users is your best gauge for how the company will perform

Look for ways to save money and also make an impact by holding the birthday party at an unexpected venue. Boys love fire trucks, check with your local fire department to see if they allow birthday parties often they will even give the kids a tour of the station and let you take pictures on a truck.
