Caleb Turns 5 - Paw Patrol Themed Birthday Party!

Post image
  Having experienced over-the-top and elaborate birthday parties done by other parents for their child, and as a parent who dislikes planning and organising birthday parties, the forthcoming birthdays of our three kids are viewed with a mixture of excitement, dread and trepidation. We do really want our kids to enjoy and remember their birthday parties, but we do not want them to believe that fun comes at a high cost. So we were a bit concerned and reluctant when our soon-to-be 5-year-old started asking for a magic show for his birthday. We tried to convince him to skip the whole birthday party idea and instead go for a magic show with the entire family and a couple of friends. However, his little heart was set on a fun birthday party and a magic show. Sourcing magicians proved to be tiresome as we had to call, email and send Facebook messages individually to the various magicians we found via word of mouth. The magicians' prices did leave me rather speechless and the whole process was quite time-consuming. Luckily I came across KidiParty along the way and found a quicker method of sourcing a number of entertainers and contacting them directly through this platform.  Then after reviewing our other options, we happened to be offered to hold our kid's birthday party indoor at the Qiren function rooms! It is located at the east side of Singapore - Tampines. The air-conditioned room was clean and spacious, with chairs and tables provided.   Imagine our relief when our Qiren agent, Doris Kho, mentioned that on top of providing a lovely venue, they would decorate and set up the room for us (that was my most hated job) and hire a magician. That left us with the food, birthday cake and goodie bags to organise (which was the fun part)! What was the most amazing part of our 5-year-old son's birthday party? The wonderful Paw Patrol themed decorations, backdrop banner and balloons – the look of excitement when we arrived said it all. The magician, Derek Magic, provided 45 minutes of entertainment and thrilled the young guests. My son was delighted beyond his wildest dreams and to be singled out to help was a dream come true. He spent much of the show chortling with laughter and cackling with the hilarity. Derek also gave him his own wand to his absolute joy. That’s now his greatest treasure, his magic wand from a real magician and he has been inspired to practice magic tricks since. Beyond that, it was easy to decide on what food to order. KFC provided bucketloads of well-received fried chicken and California Pizza served us a range of pizzas which kept our guests well fed. The main effort for us was lugging the excessive amount of chocolate, jellies, chips and drinks to the venue.  Goodie bags were an assortment of Paw Patrol bags provided by Qiren as well as the ones we organised ourselves which were divided into those for really young kids, toddlers, the 4-5-year-olds and ones for older siblings. As usual, stickers, colouring pencils, books and travel activity mats were a hit. Overall, it was a memorable and fun birthday party for us and our son with minimal effort on our part! Even better, the Qiren agents did the worst part of the birthday party - clean up after the party!

Haizel's Enchanted Forest First Birthday Party

Post image
  In celebration of Haizel's 1-year-old birthday, Haizel's Mommy had prepared an amazing and magical Enchanted Forest party. Read on to find out how she made this enchanting birthday party possible! Decision on Birthday Party Theme "I chose Enchanted Forest as the birthday party theme for Haizel as her gentle mannerisms reminded me of a deer. I wanted her first birthday to be magical with a rustic feel." Birthday Party Venue "As we expected around 80 guests, it was quite difficult to hold the birthday party in a restaurant. Thus, the party venue options was narrowed down to chalets. We chose the National Service Resort & Country Club (NSRCC) chalet as it was easy to book and we managed to get the chalet next to the eco-pond for an outdoor mystical feel."    Dessert Table Set-up "Our original plan was to set up the tent near the pond with the kids crafting area beside it. Unfortunately, a thunderstorm raged on that day. The Enchanted Diary, whom I hired to set up the location, was not fazed. The team thought on their feet and moved the set-up indoor beside the dessert table. They also surprised me with fairy lights, which were not included in the mock-up they had sent me earlier." Buffet Catering "Other than the buffet dinner from the reliable Neo Garden, the dessert table food was varied and well received. It was great to see the adults mingling and chatting while waiting for their chance to grab the birthday girl. There were fruits, popcorn, swiss rolls, donuts and baby puffs for the little tots."  Birthday Party Activities "There was a crafting table for the children to design their binoculars from scrap materials for the 1st game. Despite the mess, their designs were very innovative.  The 2nd game was to hunt for cardboard animals which my elder daughter had painstakingly hidden all over the chalet. The animals have some stickers hidden with them and the last game was to collect all the different stickers. This last game was very memorable to me as the parents had to get involved to help their kids in collecting the different stickers. Some older kids helped the younger ones too. The mad dash around the chalet was hectic yet heart-warming."  "After tiring out our little Haizel, we gathered everyone to cut the birthday cake. Little Haizel was so happy that she waved her hands around as everyone sang the birthday song for her."  Vendor Credits Food Catering: Neo GardenDecorations set-up & Dessert Table: The Enchanted DiaryVenue: National Service Resort & Country Club (NSRCC)   We hope this story inspires parents who are planning your upcoming baby shower, kid's birthday party or any other party!  This article was submitted by Lim Zhiying.  Sharing is caring.

Animal-themed Birthday Party: Danielle's 1st Birthday Bash

Post image
Want to throw an animal-themed birthday party for your little one, but don't know where to start? Get inspired here! This will give you some tips and ideas for planning an amazing kid’s birthday party from a parent.   What are the challenges you faced when planning for your child’s birthday party? We initially planned to DIY everything, so there was a lot of planning, researching, co-ordinating and liaising with various vendors. All this while looking after my baby alone! Later on, I had intended to order all desserts from the same baker to cut down on the amount of coordination. I learnt that it is better to have a simple and fuss-free birthday party. KidiParty has a useful guide on planning a kids birthday party to help ease the planning process. Another challenge we faced was our photographer played us out 2 days before the birthday party! We had to scramble and search for an alternative photographer at the last minute. What do you think of having Dessert Table in your child's birthday party? We managed to book the Dessert Table package through KidiParty. KidiParty is great as a one-stop place for organising a kid’s birthday party. The dessert table vendor whom we liaised with was also great! They were able to come up with all the items within a short timeframe. They were punctual and they setup and packed up in the background without disturbing the birthday party. The dessert table has a pretty setup during the birthday party, with the customised printed backdrop banner and milestones journey memory board. The macarons and fruit tartlets were delicious. The plate of macarons and fruit tartlets were all gone before the party was halfway through!   What was the most memorable part about the birthday party? During the birthday cake cutting, we totally forgot about the knife and birthday candles! We could not find a knife and in the end, we were cutting the birthday cake with a plastic fork! We learnt that we need to ensure that a knife and birthday candles (and a lighter to light the candle) are ready before the birthday cake cutting. On your child’s birthday, what would you like to say to your child? "Love you little monster!" 3 TIPS for other parents on planning a kid's birthday party: 1. Hire a good photographer to capture the birthday party moment and memories.   2. KidiParty is pretty much fuss-free. Simple and fuss-free kid’s birthday party is the best!   3. If you’re engaging a home baker for the birthday cake, do enquire if they will be providing a knife.   Once again, Happy 1st Birthday, Danielle!   Vendor Credits Birthday Cake: KaybakesDessert Table Package: Booked through KidiParty Overall Ratings by KidiParty Value for Money           Entertainment Factor           Overall Rating           KidiParty is a one-stop community e-marketplace platform that focuses on baby and kids birthday party celebrations in Singapore.
