We have partnered with Spotlight to bring you this piece but it is all my own words. Mx
There’s one birthday party I had growing up that stood out from all the rest. My mum converted our front room into a spook spectacular and a handful of girlfriends and I dressed up as witches and played cut the chocolate and pass the parcel amongst the best-decorated room ever. If only iPhones were available at the time…I’d have a plethora of pics to show you but I don’t have a single snap of the day. Typical second child!
The windows were blacked out with crepe paper and the black balloons and streamers hanging around the room with random witches’ hats and the odd cobweb hanging from the lamps were a big WOW factor to my little sugar fiend friends and me.
Looking back it was so simple, like legit just black basic party goods but sprinkled with a bit of mum’s effort and party flare, it felt epic. It was a party my mates told tales about for years to come.
Now, I have two offspring of my own, I have witnessed some epic party displays that kids born in the 2000’s think are just the way every party roll. Some shindigs my 5 and 8-year-old have been to are ridonk and just a tadddd over the top. More often than not the parents are trying to wow the other folks and the tots could care less about the chocolate-dipped strawberries and gold-rimmed china plates displayed with gourmet food. The kids much prefer to jump on the tramp than ride on one of the camel’s hired to takes kids for terrifying fun rides (not a joke, I witnessed first hand).
There are ways to make parties look beyond incredible and jammed full of fun without having to mortgage your house or get premature greys from party induced stress.
If it’s a themed party you are wanting to conquer, Spotlight have you covered. How does an Avengers party float your kid’s boat? Or maybe a Paw Patrol themed get together? Of course, there is also everything in between.
