Posted by Ron William on October 11th, 2017

When it comes to planning a party for the kids, there is a lot that goes into it. Right from ensuring that the arrangements are in place to letting the kids be content with the arrangements that you have made, you are to take care of a lot of aspects. Hosting a party for the kids expects a lot of attention from your end as at the end of the day you have to ensure that your guests are content and have a good relationship with your child.

Most parents hire party planners who engage in activities such as face painting in Sydney and more to help them out with the arrangements while the rest take care of it all especially when there is a small list of invitees. If you are experienced with arranging parties for your child, you wouldn’t want much of help but when it comes to parents who are doing it for the first time, there are numerous myths that engulf them, and they do not find a way out.  Here are a few myths on children’s party arrangements cleared out to help you plan in a better way.

Myth 1 - I have to invite the classmates

There is no hard and fast rule that you have to invite classmates to their birthday party. It often depends on the way you and your child wants to celebrate the birthday. If your child is fine with not inviting them and intends to spend time with the family and neighbours, then be it. Just because the classmates invite your child to their parties, you do not have to do the same for them mandatorily. Moreover, your child may have numerous classmates and hosting a party with all of them would have to make you spend on the arrangements which may not be your budget.

Myth 2 – I have to book a party venue for the birthday

Well, not always do you have to look around for a party venue to host your child’s birthday party. If you have a cosy backyard or lawn, you could invite the guests over for a meal or probably a brunch. You could go out for a beachside picnic with your family, go out for a session of mobile laser tag or probably visit grandparents on your child’s birthday and that doesn’t necessarily mean having to throw a grand party. You would be surprised to see you child having fun where they get to do something worthwhile on their birthday.

Myth 3 – You are to serve junk foods

There are several who feel that since kids love to eat junk food such a fries, burgers aerated beverages, there has to be the inclusion of it with the food that they serve at the birthday party. Well, to a certain extent, the kids would get attracted to the food but they cannot eat a lot of it at once and lay out a variety could make you witness wastage. You could curb the presence of a cake and replace it with cupcakes that are baked with healthy and nutritious ingredients. The drinks could contain fruit juices and smoothies, and the starters could comprise of fruit salads especially the ones that are a favourite with the kids.
