Birthday parties are some of my most fun memories. My parents were always into planning over-the-top celebrations for my brother and me. These include pool parties in the summer to birthday bashes in the winter and spring, respectively. Though my parents would on occasion host birthday celebrations at gymnastics studios and at bowling alleys, most of our parties were celebrated at home.
My parents would decorate the house either at night while we were sleeping or while either of us were at school or at grandma and grandpa’s house not too far from our own home. They would practically fill an entire photo album filled with the day’s celebrations!
For me and my family, things are a little bit different. My parents were already retired and were blessed with having a great amount of free time to plan and execute parties. My husband is a physician who often works five to six days per week and I am running my digital publication from home while raising my two young children. Juggling a full schedule can be very challenging and planning birthday parties, or any get together in fact, always seemed so overwhelming and time consuming.
A One-Stop Shop
Simplicity and being mindful of time is so important for working moms (and parents) to consider when planning your child’s birthday party. This year for our son’s fourth birthday party, we were very grateful to Big Dot of Happiness for being there during one of my son’s milestone birthdays. It is also a very special occasion because my son starts preschool in just a few days!
Personalize the Party
With Big Dot of Happiness, we were able to source so many cute party supplies and decorations to add that perfect element of fun and surprise. My son was elated at seeing the Barnyard Party Theme as the centerpiece for his birthday celebration. He went to nursery school on a farm and loves animals to bits.
Each piece of décor is so adorable and interactive, including their photo booth props, table toppers, and treat boxes.
Additional Kids Birthday Themes by Big Dot of Happiness include Shark Zone, Let’s Be Mermaids, Royal Prince Charming, and Woodland Creatures.
Play Your Child’s Favorite Game
Our son is so fun loving and always ready to play. With young children, incorporate some easy, fun games for them to play during the birthday party as they open up presents or in between snacks and the cake/cupcakes. My son’s favorite games are soccer and hide and seek, so we incorporated those games on a schedule and played each game for about 15 minutes.
In addition, we had photographed Ben and his friends utilizing the fun photo props by Big Dot of Happiness. The children ended up creating their own fun games with the props by pretending they were their favorite farm animals from nursery school.
Bring Home the Fun
Big Dot of Happiness has corresponding themed favor boxes that can be pre-filled or partygoers can fill them with their favorite treats. It is so easy and fun to create a spectacular birthday party with Big Dot of Happiness.
