Birthday Party Ideas

Little Edison’s past two birthday celebrations were simple affairs involving only family members. This year, since he has started pre-school, we decided to throw a more elaborated celebration for him. He is going to celebrate his third birthday with his classmates as well as family members.

It’s now less than two months before his third birthday. We need to start planning for it. We feel that it’s important to have a memorable celebration for him, especially when he has been such a good boy.

Firstly, we intend to throw a birthday party at school. We have to do it before the third term school holidays. I need to discuss with his teacher to fix the date, find a lovely birthday cake and prepare some goodie packs for his classmates. I believe he will be extremely delighted when all his classmates gather and sing a birthday song for him.

Secondly, we’re considering sticking to the same plan as last year, where we had a simple celebration at the comfort of our home with our family members. Birthday cake, buffet and simple decorations. This year, we will let Little Edison decides on the theme of the cake.

Thirdly, we’re planning for a simple celebration in a restaurant, just for three of us. Or perhaps a short holiday (if time permits). We’re still undecided.

My dear readers, do you have any suggestions for me? I’m wondering what to prepare for the goodie packs for his classmates. Do you any interesting ideas to share? I love to hear them. Thanks!

      Hi Mico,
      I intend to buy cupcakes from Sweetest Moments. Regarding the goodie packs, I’m not sure yet. My colleague commented that it may not be suitable to buy snacks or sweets because some parents don’t allow their kids to eat junk food. She suggested stationeries instead.
      The problem is who to deliver the cupcakes to school. I’ve to work on that day, so I don’t intend to take leave. I’m not sure if I can buy them the night before and keep them in the fridge.
