With the greater globalization of the world, it is getting more and more difficult to not adopt trends of other people or countries. The old trend of having a simple cake cutting ceremony or even not celebrating at all has given way to large colorfully decorated or themed birthday parties in Dubai. Nowadays, not having a party will crush the spirit of the person.
Throwing any party calls for a lot of work and time investment to pull out the best birthday party ever. Thinking through all the details, organizing the guest list, setting a party venue, purchasing decorations, and ensuring all details are met, is a huge amount of work.
But with the year ending and lots of celebrations approaching, you would probably want to try something new and take a more DIY approach. It is difficult to plan a small gathering let alone a party with all the easily available themes and decorations. So many decisions to make and so many things to be set up and about. For that, we have curated some ideas for you to adapt and adopt your own. Let’s take a look at them:
Theme Sets the Tone
The first thing that needs to be done, is to set the feeling of the party, aka the theme. Correctly choosing this is crucial as it must be the correct representation of what the party girl/boy wants. There is a wide range of themes from which a person can choose from or they can have customized themes.
Once the major part of choosing the theme is done, you can either hire someone to make and put up related decor or you can do it yourself. These decorations will include;
Cake Gets the Spotlight
No birthday party is complete without a cake. It is the one constant in it all, even with all the changes in trends and whatnot. This is the true reason for happiness at a birthday party. The single-tiered or multiple-tiered cake has various assortments and decor on top. This sugary attraction is what everyone looks forward to at the party.
Add a Classic Element
Ever since parties became the trend, something’s become a part of it so much that now it is kind of like a tradition, e.g. cake, balloons, etc. This does not mean that you are forced to have them. You can always have your own twist to the classic. This can very easily be a cupcake cake instead of the traditional one, or you can have confetti balloons instead of simple balloons or you can even switch the old juggling clown for Mickey Mouse or another. These all allow you to have your own touch and make it more to your taste instead of the same old one.
Every party needs to have more interactive things than the simple old cake cutting and gift opening. So, you can add games like Prize Walk, Bubble wrap Race, Photo Scavenger Hunt, Pin the Tail, Balloon Pop, and Musical Chairs. These will keep the energy high, and also make sure that no one is left behind.
In addition to this, keep the games short. Don’t drag them for too long, as kids will get bored of them. Long games are unlikely to get much attention, and will only drag down the spirit of the party.
While most of us have our eyes on the cake, there is a variety of other food delicacies available too. One can include different shapes of donuts, pizza, meatballs, or even sushi to fit the menu. While these are some quick handpicked food items, make sure that you have a proper meal in place. After all, once everyone is done with all the fun, everyone will get hungry and want food. Make sure to serve it nice and warm on time.
Adding desserts, cocktails, and ice cream will also add fun to it. After the food goes out, guests can munch on these while having fun with their friends. It surely will turn out to be a fun and interesting day.
Kids’ birthday parties can be a fun event where you can interact with the kids your child is friends with. It can act as a social function for parents to meet and interact with, as well. However, planning a fool-proof party for your little one can be a long and tiring process. The key is to prepare well in advance and incorporate these little fun games and ideas. Incorporating such team building activities in Dubai will keep them occupied and excited, throughout the party.
