But planning a kids birthday party is not a task as easy as it seems to be. With so many cartoons and Disney characters trending these days, every kid has picked a favorite for themselves. One of the most liked kids’ movies is the Minions. Almost every kid in the world loves to see them go bananas. No wonder minion has been one of the popular kids birthday party themes. So, if your kid is also a minion fan, plan for them an amazing minion themed birthday party. For that, here’s a guide specially curated to plan this party.
Kids birthday party checklist
The following are some things to keep in check before proceeding towards preparing for the party.
A full-fledged plan layout
Before you do anything, it is important to have a good plan to make the entire process less time consuming and organized. Start with the basic things like your kid’s likes and dislikes to plan a birthday party just the way he/she would want. Then move towards deciding things like the food menu, guest-list, venue, gifts, etc. It is always better to note all these things down somewhere so that nothing remains to be done.
The perfect kids birthday party menu
Parties are about fun & food and some people find their fun in the food. So, if you wish to make it a success, it is important to arrange the best kids birthday party food and according to the minion theme! Minion food can be things like banana bread or minion cupcakes. It can also be finger food shaped like bananas. Make sure to put things that everyone loves to eat, like burgers, pizzas, pasta, and noodles. Fast food is the new comfort food. Put in one or two dishes that are your kid’s favorite but don’t go overboard with that. Everyone is not going to love the same things as your kid right? Also, if parents are also invited to the party, put in some adult elements into the menu as well. Things like salads, fruits, and cocktail snacks would ensure a great time for the parents at the party.
A guest list
The next thing you should have on your checklist is the guest list. Figure out who all you wish to invite to your kid’s party. Have your child’s opinion on it. Ask them questions about who all they want to celebrate their birthday with, which friend has been excited about their birthday, etc.
Then put in the list people close to your family like close friends, grandparents, aunts, and uncles.
Kids birthday dress
Since it’s the minion theme, the outfit has to be around that too. The primary colors of the theme are yellow, grey, white, and blue. So, opt for a birthday outfit around the same color theme. You can also make it cooler by dressing your kid in a minion T-shirt or something similar. In short, the pictures would be amazing if you stay true to your theme and follow the color scheme to dress. Mom and Dad should also twin with their kid and dress in the same colors if they want.
Birthday party venue
The next thing you need to decide on is the birthday party venue. You can host the party at your residence or pick a party location like farmhouses, banquets, restaurants, etc. whatever suits you and your kid. But one thing to make sure while picking a venue is to pick a place that is accessible to everyone on your guest list. It would be sad for your baby if his/her best friend cannot make it to their party because of the distance.
This is the fun part. Since it’s the minion themed birthday party, the kids birthday decorations have to be according to that. Arrange for things like minion cut-outs, yellow, blue, and white balloons, and things relevant to the minion’s movie. This can be a very tedious task. You might have to run from store to store if you are planning to manage the decorations yourself. But there is something that can make this tedious task extremely easy for you. That’s CherishX. The CherishX services have a minion themed birthday party decoration option curated just for a party like this. They have everything that you would want in your decoration like cut-outs, balloon decorations, and balloon arches. All you have to do is book the experience on their site, put in your details like date, venue, time, and have the experienced people come and do the task for you
Every kid loves to get gifts. This is what return gifts are about, to give them a token of this amazing party you hosted. So, pick out a return gift for everyone. It could be things like minion stationery, a minion t-shirt, or chocolates. There are so many things that can be the perfect return gift. You can always look at Amazon to find the minion merchandise. But remember to order it way before so that you have them packed and ready on the birthday.
Kids birthday party games
What’s a party without games? I mean this is what makes any party fun. So, before the party, sit with your kid and plan out all the games that can be played on his/her birthday. Make sure to plan the games around the fun minion movie. Some great examples of minion party games are a minion whisper, pass the banana, guess which minion, etc. It is important to plan the games before so that you can arrange for props or anything related to that before the party itself.
How to execute the entire plan?
1. Book the venue and caterers
If you plan to host a party somewhere out and plan to hire caterers, it is always advisable to book them pre-hand. Doing it last minute can be problematic if there isn’t anything available. Moreover, banquets and caterers need the notice to get prepared for it as well. So, to avoid any sort of last-minute goof ups, get the bookings done at the earliest.
2. Design kids birthday invitation for an E-invite
The next step is to design an invitation for the birthday party. E- invites are the most preferable, easy, and an environment-friendly option for that. You can use software like Canva to do that as they have in-built templates to make it easier. If you have booked the decorations with CherishX, they have an option to add WhatsApp invitations at no extra cost. So, this is something you don’t have to worry about if you use the CherishX services. Once you’re done with the invite, share it with your guests and make sure to get their RSVPs.
3. Pre-order kids birthday cake
A minion themed birthday party calls for a minion themed kids birthday cake. So, pre-book this cake with your preferred bakery so that you can add this highlight to this amazing party you are hosting. Also, on booking a decoration with CherishX, you can add the minion themed birthday cake as customization. This way you wouldn’t have to follow up on the cake delivery as this cake will come to you along with the decorations.
4. Book for birthday party artists
Things like kids birthday activities just add extra life to any party. Magicians, clowns, photo booths, and game-coordinators never fail to amuse kids as well as parents. If you plan to have them at your party, remember to pre-book them. Another way of booking a magician for kids is through CherishX. You can also add it in as customization if you book the minion decor with us.
