We recently wrote about birthday party gift giving on a budget, and how for many families, all those birthday parties can start to be a strain on their bank accounts. For a lot of adults, it’s not the gift giving that is the hard part. it’s attending the party itself. Let’s face it: going to a children’s birthday party isn’t always fun as an adult. Sure, you want your kids to have a good time, enjoy themselves, and build relationships with their peers. But you could probably do without some of the other things that come with attending a kid’s birthday party, like the cleanup, the boring small talk, and the constantly glancing at the clock.
If you want to throw a birthday party that’s fun for the adults to attend, too, we have some suggestions! As Rohnert Part’s premier place for kid’s birthday parties, we have seen a lot of parties over the years and we know what makes them fun for both kids and adults. Here are some of our suggestions for making it a successful party for everyone involved.
One of the worst things you can do to a parent is to make their weekend more confusing or more of a hassle. Start the party off right by setting clear expectations on the invitations. Let parents know where or not the siblings are invited, or if they drop off their child and pick them up later (provided there will be plenty of safe adult supervision, of course!). You can also put on the invitation whether you have any requests about gifts, dress code, or allergy warnings. When all of the information is clear, you can get the party off to the right start!
Parties should be about the birthday child and their guests, of course. But it won’t hurt (and will definitely help!) to have some activities there for the grown-ups, too. Keeping the grown-ups happy means they’ll be more likely to stay longer and allow kids more time to play. You can do things as simple as providing more grown-up snacks and beverages so they don’t have to ruin their diets with pizza and soda. Or you can go all out and provide them with board games or a space to watch the latest football game.
Sometimes, adults just want some peace and quiet…and wifi. Make an “adults only” space at the party where the grown-ups can go hang out and get some time with other adults without participating in the noise and frenzy of the birthday party. Just having a few quiet minutes to check in on Facebook or send a couple emails can make a parent’s day. Suddenly your event will be their favorite one of the year!
We have created a space that’s built around both kids and their parents, making it ideal for birthday parties and more. Here are some of the things the adults at your next kid’s birthday party will love about Rebounderz.
