The cool mom’s checklist to throwing the best children’s party

Far from the typical birthday party fare of fried chicken, classic Pinoy style spaghetti, hotdogs and marshmallows on sticks, along with pabitins and games, children’s parties nowadays are on a whole new level. Some parents turn parties it into a one-of-a-kind event with themed stage and table decorations, costumes, games, entertainment, and even menu.

The cool mom’s checklist to throwing the best children’s party

If you want to give your kid the best party yet don’t have a clue on what to do, then this list may help you. El Real Pasta has come up with a checklist to help you throw a birthday bash that deserves its own trending hashtag.

Decide on the theme

Still don’t have a party theme? Discover what your kids are into these days. What are they watching? What are they craving for? What songs are they singing along or dancing to? Knowing the things that currently interests your little ones and making that the overall theme of their birthday bash can help ensure your kids and all the invited guests will have a blast.

Choose a location

Decide whether to throw the party at home or at another venue. Choose a location the soonest since you need enough time to clean up the house or the backyard if you want to throw it at home. You also need time to look for venues and make reservations if you want to have the party elsewhere. Whichever you choose, what’s important is to stick to your budget and theme.

Keep a guest list

Prepare a list of invitees and do RSVPs. Make sure you keep your kids’ friends and favorite people on top of the guest list. Having guests RSVP also helps you out in deciding the menu, the location, the games, and the loot bags. So, don’t forget to send out Save The Dates before the actual invitations.

Prepare party food with a twist

Even if we’re going beyond the typical birthday spaghetti, we can’t deny that kids love their pasta at parties. The key is adding a fun twist to pasta dishes by whipping up El Real Pasta and experimenting on some Spaghetti and Meatball on a stick — it’s basically the classic spaghetti pasta wrapped around a stick, with a meatball stuck on top of it. There’s also the Hotdog Pasta which you can make by sticking pasta on hotdogs before boiling them.
