Birthday party checklist - everything you need to cover

It’s hard to beat a good birthday celebration.

Seeing family and friends, indulging in delicious food, and enjoying party games.

What’s not to love?

Well, if you’re the one planning the day, things can get a little bit stressful. So we thought we’d lend a helping hand.

Below is our ultimate birthday party checklist. If you can tick all of these boxes, you’re on the right track for a top-notch celebration!

1.   Decorations

Choosing the right decorations can instantly create the perfect party atmosphere.

But you don’t need anything complicated!

A few colourful streamers, balloons and banners can make a world of difference. However, if you’re planning on a specific theme, it’s a good idea to order your props in advance.

Just gather your decorations ahead of time, and set up the party space a few hours before the fun begins.

2.   Party games and entertainment

Planning some fun party games for your birthday gathering is also a fantastic idea.

(Particularly if you’ll have some smaller party guests running around!)

Sometimes you can’t beat the classics. Games like musical chairs, pin-the-tail and treasure hunts are fun for all ages. Plus, you don’t need any expensive equipment to get started.

Just plan out a few entertainment ideas for the day, organise your guests, and enjoy the fun.

3.   Birthday cake

The birthday cake is the centrepiece of any party. 

Not only is it a delicious addition to the celebration, but it also comes with some brilliant traditions - the big reveal, blowing out the candles, cutting the first slice. It all starts with the cake!

Luckily, birthday cakes are our speciality here at EveryCake. 

We’ve got 100s of unique themes and stunning designs to choose from, so you can select the perfect cake for a lucky recipient.

We also know the importance of a personal touch. That’s why we offer free customisation and personalisation with every order.

Just select your favourite design, add a special message, and choose from our selection of delectable flavours. Finding your dream cake is as easy as that!

4.   Guestlist and invitations 

Last, but certainly not least, is your guestlist. 

It’s better to send out party invitations as soon as possible, so that friends and family can check their diaries and mark their calendars.

If you’re keen to impress, you can always hand-write your party invitations and send them off in a fancy envelope. Otherwise, social media is your friend - a virtual invite is quick and easy, and people can respond instantly.

If you can cover all of the above before the birthday bash, you can give yourself a firm pat on the back. Oh, and one more thing - don’t forget to enjoy the day!
