When you are planning a birthday party the first thing to consider is your guests, there will of course be many thousands who would wish to celebrate your birthday so you will need to cut the guests list to the select and lucky few. These important guests will need time to make a hole in their diary, select what to wear for the big occasion and most importantly decide what they are going to get you for your birthday. The next thing to consider is the party venue and whether this venue sets the right tone for the auspicious event of your birthday party celebration.

When choosing the right venue consider who your guests are, and does the venue match their requirements. For example if your party is on the first floor or above a pub and the loos are on the ground floor how will your older guests cope with the stairs. Its also true you will need to think about your smokers, they will need a safe outside space that they can easily get to. If your party is during the summer months your venue must have a way to draw the blinds as a disco party atmosphere will not properly develop until it gets dark. Parties that take place in midsummer are much slower getting going than midwinter.

After finding the right venue the next thing you will need to think about is some birthday party entertainment. If you have loads of spare cash then consider a sparkling cabaret with singers, comedians maybe a magician and a party DJ for when the dancing starts. On the other hand if you are working with a smaller budget then just book the party DJ. DJs and mobile discos are perhaps the most economical and versatile entertainment solution for any party and a great birthday party DJ can make your your occasion a extra special celebration.

More Party Tips

If you have decided to make the party more informal you are probably going for a buffet rather than a sit down dinner. There needs to be plenty of food for everyone but in most cases people will just snack, so in our experience loads of party food is normally thrown out at the end of the night. If you have hired a professional caterer, what will end up in the bin would have cost you a fortune. Its always a good idea to add some bulk to the professionally prepared fare with some home made or shop bought items. That way everyone is impressed by the delicious canapes but is full to bursting with the cheese sandwiches and sausage rolls you made.

Its probably best to forget disposable cameras which cost a fortune, and the technique of getting the best shots will be unfamiliar. Your guests are more likely to take blurred shots with heads cut off. Everyone has a camera on their mobile phone and because this is something they are used to, they can take happy snaps and email you the results. Or set up a facebook page where everyone can share photos.
