HOW TO PUT ON A BETTER BIRTHDAY PARTY
Here is your free report on making your child’s birthday party fabulous and worry-free
Your child spends a whole year in anticipation of this one very special day. Their birthday is their day to shine, when he or she is the star of the show and their friends join them to celebrate another year.
As parents, we do everything to make this day special because we know that it’s more than just a year that is being celebrated – we have the perspective to know that our child is experiencing a personal milestone that only happens once in a lifetime.
While some parents seem to be able to plan and execute a perfect party with minimal effort, for many of us, hosting the perfect party is a challenge, to say the least.
We consult our friends, we contact our social media networks and we read every magazine article we can get our hands on.
Before long, we discover one interesting fact. Everyone’s advice is slightly different. So we’re left with the dilemma — whose advice do you listen to?
Or, if you’re the kind of parent who is continually adding to that bulging file folder of birthday cake ideas, goody bags and game suggestions, you sometimes run into this problem — life happens. You run out of time, you lose the folder or nothing seems to be good enough to suit your child’s interests or disposition.
These are the times that many parents turn to the real experts, those of us who specialize in holding birthday parties. We are best positioned to offer some real-world guidance based on experiences and observations from literally hundreds of parties.
Our facility, a popular and well-respected martial arts academy, hosts parties for boys and girls of all ages, all the way up to teens — so the advice we are sharing with you is based upon a wealth of experience with kids of all ages.
Keep reading for the practical kind of advice every parent needs in order to stop worrying — and bring on the fun.
BIRTHDAY PARTY BASICS
Once you’ve spoken with your birthday party provider and settled upon a date and time, much of the rest should fall into place.
Q: How soon should I send out invites?
A: Once you confirm the date and time of the party, you should send out the invitations. Make sure the other parents understand that, if they have any questions or concerns, they should contact either you or the party facility.
Q: What if I don’t hear back from parents?
A: Make it as easy as possible for parents to contact you. Provide your email, your home telephone number and cell phone number. That will allow other parents multiple options for contacting you with their RSVP.
Q: How should I advise parents to dress their children?
A: These days, birthday parties are more active than ever. The days of dressing up your 5-year-old in his or her “Sunday best” for a friend’s birthday party is gone.
Today, kids attend birthday parties with the expectation that they will be active and maybe also a little bit messy.
WHY A MARTIAL ARTS PARTY?
In our experience, kids of all ages love martial arts and consider it cool and fun. That’s reason one. If you hold a party with us, we guarantee your child will be bragging about it for months.
The second reason is that our birthday parties are supervised by professional martial arts instructors from beginning to end. We don’t allow kids to be bored or to run around wild. Instead, we structure each party with non-stop activities, which always include learning some cool martial arts moves.
The third reason is that all the kids attending the party will leave with some new life skills, including a boost in self confidence and better self discipline. You will notice the difference.
