How to Plan a birthday party for a 9 Year Old Birthday Girl
Emily Cleaton a wedding planner based in London has kindly shared top tips for organising a little girl’s birthday party.
Every little girl loves the idea of a day celebrated with her best pals and being treated like a princess. So, why not make your girl feel special on her birthday party. She might remember this occasion in the future and she will certainly silly laugh at photographs capturing special memories.
To make your girl’s celebration special and memorable, you need to be sensitive about her choices. Your baby girl may have a penchant for ‘Alice in Wonderland’ birthday theme, be obsessed with One Direction or may have a fondness for ‘Hello Kitty’ . Be in favour of her suggestions and plan accordingly. Here are some tips and tricks to help you plan a hearty little party for your child.
Hire a Kid-Friendly Venue
Your girl’s birthday is approaching, and you’re not sure where to host it. A lot of parents opt to hold parties at outdoor venues either because they don’t have sufficient space at home or they want the party activity to be handled by professionals.
As we all know, the venue plays an important role in setting the mood of the party. You need to search a space that is kid-friendly and colourful.
Themed cafes, soft play areas, local zoos, and outdoor garden venues are just some of the spots that you can take into consideration. Before choosing the venue, make sure that the location is easily accessible for all guests attending with kids. Alternatively why not look at setting up a marquee in the garden. Cake Cetera recently hosted a cupcake decorating party in a marquee and it looked beautiful. The marquees aren’t very expensive and can be bought on ebay for approx. £60 and decorated to suit your party theme.
Select a Girly Theme
What’s precious to your baby girl’s heart? Frozen, Princesses, Barbie? Let her decide the theme for her special birthday and involve her in the planning.
Don’t Forget the Cake
Obviously, no birthday bash would complete without a cake. To make her birthday party the best ever, you need to have a delicious cake that will enchant your little princess.
Check out Cake Cetera’s cupcake bouquets which contain 7 cupcakes presented in a little pot topped with chocolate leaves. Cake Push pops also make a great alternative to cake and they can be personalised with labels detailing names, date and themes.
Design the Invitations
Are you done with the theme & venue? Then, the next step that comes into action is designing the invitations. There is no end to creativity that you can show with the invitations.
The best way is to use bright colours and patterns, as your invitations will set the tone of the party. There are lots of websites that let you design invitations online or alternatively print your own with a range of free printable designs.
Serve a Kid-Pleasing Menu
Kids are usually picky eaters so choosing the right food can be a little tricky. It is possibly one of the most difficult tasks on your party planning process.
To ease this job, make sure to serve the meals that don’t strain kid’s attire and are healthy too. Veggie dips, pizzas, pastas and bite-size cupcakes are some of the options that kids will love to have.
Relax and Have Fun
The juices will spill, kids will cry, and things will happen, but you shouldn’t sweat the small stuff. It’s your girl’s birthday party, so just relax and have fun with your princess. Don’t get caught up in the little details. It’s the smile on your wee one’s face that matters and nothing else.
Follow these tips and suggestions that will help you plan a special and hassle-free birthday party bash for your big girl. For more amazing inspiration for birthday parties and wedding themes pop over to Emily’s pinterest page
