Let’s dive in!
How to plan a birthday party
Below is a checklist of aspects to keep in mind when planning your very first party:
Pick a date
This is a simple one. First, check your friends’ and family’s schedules to make sure there are no conflicts with other parties, vacations, and more. Then, pick a day that works for you, barring any holidays!
Decide about location
A house is the easiest, of course, but you can also choose a mall café. In Singapore, there are many locations suitable for birthday parties/events, including cafes, family businesses, and even parks.
Which people will attend?
Pick your closest friends and family members first and think about who else you need to invite. Come up with a schedule by which you can meet these people.
Decide on the name of your party
This is a very fun part! The birthday boy/girl gets to pick the name of the party. For example, if it is your friend’s birthday, maybe you can make a pun on his/her name. Additionally, everyone present has to wear something related to the name of the party.
Decide on a theme (subject or occasion)
This is a very important part to consider. A birthday party needs to be fun and memorable, so think about what your family/friends are interested in. Moreover, you can have a theme that matches your friends’/family member’s personalities.
Activities are important to keep everyone busy and active. Go outside, have fun games inside, or even do another activity with just you and the birthday boy/girl.
Design a menu
The food and drinks are as important as the activities and games. Make sure your guests will enjoy what you prepare for them. Do not forget to make your menu balanced, with both food and drink. Make sure everyone is satisfied with their food. A birthday party is about celebrating the birthday boy/girl! So make sure the venue, menu, activities, and decorations will all be in consideration.
Set a budget
Make sure you have enough money to prepare for the party, before making any other preparations. According to

How can you keep everyone busy? This is the hardest part! Even though it’s easy to think of ideas, you have to make sure your guests enjoy themselves. A good idea is to organize different activities with different themes at different times to allow everyone to participate. Consider your guests; what they like to do.
Birthday party packages
Instead of buying all these supplies yourself, you can get everything ready with a package. For example, ask your friends to make decorations and create a menu for you. You can also choose birthday party packages from stores and online websites. The good thing about birthday party packages is that you can save quite a lot of money compared to buying all the supplies yourself. But make sure that your friends and family will agree to it. It’s best to choose birthday party packages that are available online.
Well, there you have it, the ultimate checklist when planning and organizing a birthday party. The whole process might seem challenging, but with a little bit of effort, you’ll be able to have a fun and memorable party. When it comes to the birthday boy/girl, you can give him/her an unforgettable time at his/her special event.
