The Secrets of Planning a Successful Kiddie Party

October 20, 2023

Written by AVLCI

Seeing your children healthy and living a comfortable life is what makes every parent truly happy. As they say, “Parents’ love for their kids is infinite and unconditional.” There are countless ways to express your feelings towards your little ones. It could be by cooking their everyday meals, fetching them from school, reading to them their favorite storybook, taking them to beautiful places, or spending quality time with them.

While these can all create deep emotional bonds between a parent and a child, it is even more special and heartwarming if you could successfully plan a birthday party that your kid will remember forever. Here are a few tips on how you can make your kid’s event fantastic and memorable:

1.) Set your kid’s favorite story, hobby, or movie as the event’s theme.

Remember that you play an important role in making sure your child enjoys his or her party. Oftentimes, parents are inclined to add extra details just to guarantee an outstanding party and to impress other parents and visitors. To lessen the stress of planning, identify your kid’s biggest interest and set it as the event’s main theme. Is your kid fond of fairytales, superheroes, cars, or cartoons? No matter how you want to execute the party, we are sure that your kid will jump with excitement and joy once his or her favorite character and theme decorations are revealed.

2.) Choose a kid-friendly location.

Your kid’s safety is our top priority. If you are living in the city, and you want your kid to experience a stylishly exclusive event, then we highly suggest holding the party in one of our state-of-the-art function rooms at Astoria Plaza, our hotel in Ortigas, Pasig. Suitable for kiddie events, all our banquet halls are designed with the safety of our guests in mind and are embellished with top-notch interior decorations.



3.) Select personalized food options.

Be creative with the menu. Kids will be more enticed to eat if they see colorful food varieties in line with the event’s theme. You may request to have the munchies patterned after the shapes of your kid’s favorite game or Disney character. You may also add a dessert station filled with eye-catching decorations.

If you choose Astoria Plaza’s packages, your dearest one, as well as the other guests, will get to enjoy a special selection of dishes, snacks, desserts, and drinks.



4.) Prepare fun party games for the kids.

A party is no fun without games! Since you are planning to throw a kiddie event, then you must think of playful activities that will liven up the celebration. Why not hold games like scavenger hunt, pin the tail on the donkey, bring me, under-over relay, stop dance, piñata, or fishing game? Heads up! This is the most entertaining yet the most draining part of the program, not just for the kids but for the parents who will guide and support these energetic crew of preschoolers and grade schoolers, too. So, hang tight, mommies and daddies!

5.) Keep the party alive with children’s songs.

Turn the music up and let the party begin! To cultivate a light and happy atmosphere all throughout the event, prepare a good set of popular nursery rhymes or children’s songs that the kids can sing along and dance to. As a matter of fact, music can greatly help improve their cognitive, motor, and social skills.
