How Early Should You Start Planning A Birthday Party?

Birthday parties are an exciting time for kids of all ages!  Some families prefer to have big elaborate parties and others choose small simple ones.  Either way, all parties require some sort of organizing and planning. There are many variables when it comes to planning a party.  But the most important part is to ensure the birthday boy/girl feels special on their big day.Planning a Birthday Party

  • Six – Eight Weeks Out: On average, planning typically starts about six to eight weeks before the party. At this time, the basics are decided such as party theme, date, venue, budget and guest list. Picking a party theme early in the planning process is important because it will determine overall decorations. At Amazing Gaming on Wheels, our more popular themes for gaming parties are: Marvel, DC, Fortnite, Minecraft and Pokemon.
  • Four Weeks Out: About four weeks before the party, more specifics are determined such as a list of guests and decisions on activities and food for the big day are made. Traditionally, you can’t go wrong with the typical party food such as pizza, burgers, hot dogs, etc. For activities, some ideas for video game themes include: scavenger hunts, Nerf battles or board games. Some even ask guests to dress up as their favorite characters.
  • Final Prep: Three weeks before, invitations are mailed so that guests can save-the-date and start responding. One week before the party, the planner writes a final guest list of those who are coming. This is the time to start purchasing supplies and favors so an accurate headcount is needed. Once everything is ordered and/or purchased it is time to wait party day to arrive!
