"Less is More" ,Why Small Parties ALWAYS Win!

Updated: Dec 19, 2019

There really is nothing like going all out for your kids birthday – large venue, tons of guests, entertainment, the whole shebang, but let’s talk quality vs. quantity here. We’re not saying that you can’t throw a banging party with tons of guests… it’s just... REALLY hard. Smaller intimate parties take a load off of you, allow guests to spend quality time together, and experience meaningful interactions.

All the reasons why 10 guests maximum is a good idea:

  1. Less Kids = Less Mess = Less Stress

  2. Strategic Budgeting, more bang for your buck. Hello loot bags, party favours, yummy snacks Quality Programs and Activities

  3. Minimal Planning

  4. Ability to meet other parents – have parents join you for coffee/tea in kitchen while the kids do their thing!

  5. Creating memories with close friends

  6. Simple entertainment/programming (less differing interests to work with)

Ideas For Small Parties:

  1. Pyjama Party/Sleepover

  2. Dinner and a Movie (at home or in theatres)

  3. Laser Tag

  4. Skyzone

  5. Mall Scavenger Hunt

  6. Craft Parties (Bath Bombs, Slime, Candle Making, Paint Nite, DIY Mugs)

  7. Yoga, Fitness, or Dance Class

  8. Double Trouble – Parents Upstairs, Kids Downstairs

  9. High Tea – Children’s Edition

  10. Photoshoot

  11. Top Chef Cook off

  12. Indoor/Outdoor Camping

  13. BBQ

  14. Cake Decorating

  15. Spa Party

  16. Ceramic Painting

If you’re worried about folks feeling left out (since they weren't invited you can plan a family dinner at a restaurant (less work for you!), and maybe bring a treat in for the class, something easy like nut-free cupcakes or pencils. Remember, this day is about the Birthday Kid, think about what would make them happy and the activities they enjoy.

Peace out!
