Celebrate a child's 10th birthday with an incredible party
June 16, 2010
Believe it or not, turning 10 is often a designated a rite of passage by children. Of course, kids adore every one of their birthdays, but sometimes entering the double digits signifies the start of adulthood for the little ones. You can't help but want to give them a big hug for being so adorable.
Because of this, a birthday party such as this one should be considered extremely special by loving parents. Your son or daughter is likely to be counting down the days until they can wake up and exclaim to the world "I'm 10 years old!" A party should definitely match their enthusiasm.
To begin, ask your child where they would like to have the event. A lot of girls might enjoy roller skating or painting parties, while boys may prefer to go bowling or play baseball. It's their day, so try to find out how they envision their special affair.
Once you've got that squared away, try to go shopping for some incredible birthday decorations. These should stick to one particular theme, or better yet, match the locale where you are having the shindig.
For example, if your little girl decided she wants to slap on a pair of rollerblades and skate around a rink with a bunch of her best friends, try to find streamers, banners and birthday party supplies that call attention to the venue. Napkins and paper plates that have images of the 70s on them will really be great for the little ones, as this is when roller skating took off in pop culture.
If you've got a sports fan on your hands, birthday decorations should be easy. For instance, if your son decides he wants to head to the batting cages with his pals, make sure to buy banners and streamers with photos of his favorite team players. If you can find a bunch of baseball cards, put them in goody bags and hand them out to guests. Watch as a smile starts beaming on everyone's face.
Once you've got the decorations squared away, it's time to really get into the party-planning mood. This is where all the extra details come into play.
For example, why not buy some inflatable décor and place it around the event space? If you can find a blow up roller skating teen queen, your daughter is bound to go crazy for it. For your sports fan, a huge blow-up baseball bat is bound to create memories that will last a lifetime.
Remember, every birthday is important, but there's something about turning 10 that sends kids into a tizzy. It's the time that they can boast to their friends that they finally entered the double-digit years and prove that they are growing up. Try to make this bash a huge one - you won't have to work this hard for at least a few years after it's over!
