Birthday Party Secrets – For today’s busy working adults, planning a good birthday party and shopping for supplies is a task that often takes up too much valuable time. Proud parents of newborns are also too busy to do much celebrating but they are usually prone to get more involved when choosing party themes.

After all, it’s the child’s “first” birthday. And if the child is the “first” child, even more reason to set valuable time aside. Whether the child is the “first” one or if you are planning a party for any other aged child, let us give you a few tips, ideas and secrets to make the occasion more enjoyable for everyone.

If the child is old enough, let your child choose the theme of the ‘birthday party‘ (which is also known as ‘Geburtstagsparty‘ in the German language) and be actively involved in the planning stages of the event. After all, it is the “child’s” birthday and the “child’s” party.

While planning a birthday party can be a bit time consuming and challenging, all the work will be worth it when you see how much fun everyone has. Think of labour pains and how you forget them once you’ve laid eyes on your new baby. Well, certainly party planning is not to “that” degree!

Think about having a Birthday Treasure Hunt. You’ll need your video camera for this one. It is a one-of-a-kind, birthday party movie-making adventure that starts your birthday child and all their guests in a simple but extremely fun mini-movie they will be talking about for a long time to come. Be creative with what you will use for “treasures” and where you will hide them.

For girls, think about having a tea party. Simple tea party etiquette tips and guidelines will help make your child’s birthday tea party a great success and one they will remember fondly for years to come. You might want to make an etiquette guideline list and send it along with your invitations, informing your guests that you will be following this list of tea party etiquette guidelines. Be creative! Make it FUN!
