How Do Parents Make Each Birthday Count?


Having a child changes your life forever, and it also gives you a new perspective on life. All parents want the best for their children. It’s not only a beautiful feeling, but it’s also a natural part of the evolution theory: it’s about making the world a better place for the next generation. Nevertheless, science aside, mummies and daddies from all around the planet agree that children grow up so fast that it’s essential to enjoy the magical moments of their first years. Being there for their child, while it sounds like the most obvious thing to do, remains a difficult topic for young parents who struggle with professional responsibilities. But that’s why reviewing your priorities in life is key to taking the time to watch your child grow. At the end of the day, it’s about creating valuable and precious memories for you and them, so that you can be sure that you haven’t missed anything of your child’s development. Behind each memory, there’s a family bond that keeps you together and makes it count. Here’s how to turn one of the most symbolic events in your child’s life, the birthday, into an unforgettable moment.



#1. A themed party for the little ones
Young children are quick to develop passions, whether they have a fascination for Frozen or they find dinosaurs exciting. These passions often last for a few years before your child moves on to something different. However, while they’re still small, anything that relates to their hobby is a much-appreciated gift. So why not create a themed birthday party that reflects their favourite thing? The most common choice for the 3 to 7-year-old are:
  • Frozen
  • Princesses
  • Pirates
  • Dinosaurs
  • Cars
  • Dragons

You will find plenty of specialist decor shops that can give you a hand to find the right accessories and even the right costumes for your child’s birthday party.


#2. There’s no birthday without a treat
Let’s be honest: birthday parties are all about the sugar rush. It doesn’t matter how healthy every other day is and whether your child is eating enough greens. When it’s their big day, the focus switches to birthday cakes and more because it’s not a birthday if you can’t have a treat. If you want to ensure that their cake is as healthy as it can be while remaining yummy, try a tradition-breaking Apple strudel or maybe a fruit cheesecake. Otherwise, let them indulge a little; there’s still time to eat healthy vegetables tomorrow!


#3. Bringing everyone together
There’s no party without guests! While during the first years of your child, it’s likely that your main guests will be relatives. However, once your child is old enough to go to school, you’ll soon be preparing invitation cards for school friends, neighbours, and other friends. There are some unspoken birthday invite etiquette to follow: If you don’t know all parents personally, paper invites are a great way to let your child hand out invitations at school. You should send the invitation at least 3 to 4 weeks before the events so that you can set a RSVP date enough in advance to plan the party.


Building memories together is essential to create birthday parties that your child will cherish. Revive your sense of playfulness with themed parties, custom-made cakes and exciting invites!
