  1. Pick a standout birthday party theme: A great way to make a good first impression is to decorate your home according to a certain theme. Here are a couple of popular theme ideas to inspire you:
  • Arabian Nights: A red table cloth, lanterns and a magic genie lamp should be your go-to decorations. Ask the kids (and adults) to dress up in traditional Arab clothes, and put on some traditional Arab music to really get everyone in the mood.
  • Frozen: A current favourite. Pick up light blue table decorations and blue and white balloons to pull this one off. You can even get some plastic tiaras to give to the guests when they arrive to turn everyone into mini princesses. Consider asking one of the adults to dress up as Elsa for a surprise birthday visit.
  • Pirates and Ships: Ahoy Matey, Ye want t’ be a pirate aye, well then, choose some blue and red decorations for your house an’ ye’ll be on yer way. For an extra special touch, set up a pirate treasure hunt and hang up a pirate ship piñata!

  1. Ask guests to dress up: Kids have a wild imagination and many of them love to dress up and get into character. Ask the guests to dress up in line with the party’s theme. You could even have a prize for the best dressed guest. Just make sure to give the guests plenty of notice so that you don’t stress any parents out. If you’re not so keen on having a dress-up party, you could hire a face painter to add a bit of excitement to the event.

  1. Set up a photo station: This always leads to lots of laughs and happy memories. Create a themed background and buy some cheap props which people can use to pose in front of it for photos. Hire a professional photographer to capture these wonderful memories so that you can focus on mingling with the other parents. You could even ask the photographer to also take some photos using a polaroid camera, or have a printer handy, so that guests can take a photo home with them.
