The bar has been raised higher in recent years for blowout birthday parties for children. But for parents who prefer to keep things more low-key and manageable, a great party is not out of reach just because no one is renting out an entire water park or paying an NBA player to make an appearance. All it takes to make a memorable celebration is a theme, a plan and some valuable resources. We’ve gathered this list of useful tips that can help you pull off the event you want without worrying about party decoration or the ever-expanding guest list. With Cakest DIY Cake kits the cake decoration will be a piece of cake too!
Yes, parties can be successful without a theme, but having a general idea of what you want the motif to be will make preparations much simpler.

There are other areas of the party you can use to play out your motif or color scheme, such as the invitations, the party favors or the table settings. But again, it’s up to you. You can keep it minimal if you want because you know that the kids will have a great time even without a castle-sized bouncy house.
