7 Reasons Why Hiring a Professional Birthday Party Planner is The Right Choice You’ll Make
It’s 2019, why are you still allowing yourself to break your back trying to host a birthday party? There are smarter and easier ways to do things in this day and age, so take advantage of them. The quickest and most care-free way to ensure that your birthday party goes exactly as planned is to hire a professional birthday party planner. If you’re still unsure about it, here’s seven reasons why you should.
1. Birthday Parties for Any Age
Professional birthday party planners don’t host parties for just kids; they do birthday parties for all ages. Whether you’re trying to find a party planner for your 1-year-old or your 90-year-old great grandma, they’ll take care of everything you’ll need to have the best party ever. Of course, there’ll be different types of decorations for a baby than for a grandma, but there’s no need to worry since your party planner will make the necessary and age-appropriate changes.
2. No Cooking Required
To most people, this is probably the best advantage of using a professional birthday party planner. Since they provide the cake and snacks, you don’t have to do any of the cooking.
On the other hand, if you want to have a meal made for guests and not just sweets, you might have to do some cooking. Even then, there are ways to get out of having to cook. One way to avoid cooking is by having the birthday party in a reserved party room at a restaurant or pizza place and then pre-pay for the guest’s food and drinks. The reserved room will allow your party planner to still bring a cake and decorations.
You could also hire a caterer, but that works better for larger parties. Another option is to pay the person planning the party a little extra to provide the desired food, but not all professional party planners will be willing to.
3. Personalized Cake and Decorations
The main reason that people hire professional birthday party planners is because of the personalized cake and decorations that they provide. It’s usually all homemade and unique, so you won’t see the same decorations or cake at anyone else’s party, and it provides an extra special touch to your dream party.
Sometimes it’s hard to find the specific-themed decorations you’re looking for, especially if it’s a movie or show on tv that’s not very popular anymore. Amazon and other sites have a lot of options for themed decorations, old and new, but they usually don’t have everything. Another problem is that if you buy your decorations from more than one store, they might not match each other perfectly. That’s not something you have to worry about if a party planner is making all the decorations by hand. Most professional party planners are bakers too, so the cake will even match everything.
4. Less Work for You to Do
Hosting a birthday party is a lot of work for one person. You have to set up tables and
seating, order or make a cake, buy snacks and beverages, find decorations, make invitations and clean everything up after the party’s over. If you’re planning on your birthday party being much more elaborate, then I’m sure the workload is doubled. It can be very hard to find the time to do all of this when you have other stuff going on in your life, like work and family time.
A birthday party planner takes away the stress of trying to plan a party; it’s their specialty. Let them take on the hard work so that you can enjoy yourself at the party. It’s worth the extra money.
5. If it’s your son or daughter’s birthday party, you’ll be the best parent ever!
Every kid dreams of having a gigantic birthday party. They want a party that they’ll remember forever. They’ll also remember how awesome of a parent you are for throwing an amazing party for them. Every parent wants their kid to be happy, even if it means going all out one year for your child's party. Hiring a professional will help you make this birthday the most special one yet. They can plan activities and games and also make sure that the parents that attend are well taken care of too.
6. A Strict Budget is Followed
Throwing a birthday party on your own can sometimes end up costing you more than it would cost to hire a professional party planner. When you’re out at a party supply store buying decorations, there are all sorts of cool stuff that you might want to buy, so a lot of people end up getting more than they need and go way over their initial budget. Impulse buying is a real problem with some people when they’re shopping for fun stuff like decorations.
Expenses add up a lot quicker than you think and will be hard to keep track of if you don’t have help. When you hire a party planner, one of the first things they will do with you is sit down and go over everything you want for the party and then they’ll give you an estimate of how much it will cost. You’ll also be asked the maximum amount you want to spend on the birthday party overall. They will keep track of everything purchased for the party and won’t go over your budget unless you tell them to. Because of their vast experience hosting birthday parties, you can rest assured that everything you need will be provided.
7. You Can Sit Back and Enjoy the Party
Everything is taken care of. The party planner has baked your cake and brought it to the party, they set up all of the decorations, sent out invitations based on your guest list and even put a birthday party sign down the street to help guests find your house. There’s no need for you to rush around getting things done the day of the birthday party, nothing to stress yourself over. Enjoy the birthday party and make lots of good memories with those who are closest to you.
