Remember when going to a birthday party as a kid was the highlight of the week? Whether it was a pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey and cupcakes party or a no-adult teen bash, the anticipation and getting ready was part of the fun. Getting older rarely inspires excitement. Add in work, kids, laundry, grocery shopping and more obligations than there are hours in the day. Who has time, not to mention desire, to plan a party?
That’s where Birthday Party Ideas comes in. This e-book is designed to help put the fun back into birthdays. From poking fun at the number of candles on the cake to helpful hints, the following pages will get your creative juices flowing with party themes and paraphernalia, gag gift suggestions and places to find all the things you’ll need.
Divided into four sections, Birthday Party Ideas begins with Party Planning: suggested themes for aging family, friends and coworkers in your life ranging from the traditional, such as a scavenger hunt, to the remaking of a kids birthday favorite – the slumber party – including tips for how to get party-goers into the spirit, decorations, games and other ideas for creating a festive atmosphere. Marking the occasion of another passing year with the perfect gift is an opportunity to continue the theme of a party or just tease the aging adult in your life. So we’ve included a list of presents the birthday boy or girl simply can’t (or shouldn’t) do without. Whether you’re struggling to find a unique gag gift or helping guests figure out what to get, Gifts offers ideas from a single item to a gift basket.
The Bonus Section will make finding party supplies, decorations, accessories and games a breeze. Access to the Internet makes a variety of specialty stores and retailers available regardless of location. However, sometimes exploring local shops is more inspiring and fun, so we’ve included some places to begin your quest.
Whether you need a quote to add to the cake, a thought to include with the invitation to help set the tone for guests or a party banner, Pearls of Wisdom includes fun and serious thoughts on aging from a variety of people.
