If you’re not into celebrating parties at home or want a change in location, one can find lots of venues that range from hotels to small spaces that you can rent out depending on your preferred budget. Check out Cebuana MaMa as this blog can help you narrow down your selection (the site is complete with all the necessary information).

Children’s parties are all about themes and motifs—no matter how whimsical or peculiar they can be. Ask your child what they envision so that they can feel that they’re in control and at the same time, help boost their creativity. Find inspiration from sites like Pinterest or random articles like this. Make the event memorable by giving away loot bags and giveaways to attendees.
3. Decorate to Your Heart’s Content

Is your dashing boy a huge fan of Adventure Time? Does your little princess adore Anna or Elsa and can’t stop singing to the tune of “Let it Go”? If your party of choice is geared towards a theme, then it’s a given that you’ll have to deck out your venue with the appropriate decorations. Other parents opt to go the DIY route since this is more budget-friendly and kids can be involved in the process. Willing to spend extra? There are several party planners/organizers who can help out with all the party needs from the balloons to the plates. Cebu Balloons, Hannah’s, and Sparkles are just some of a few party suppliers to choose from.
4. No Dull Moment Allowed
Kids, being the super duper energized creatures that they are, can’t stand still if they’re feeling bored. Play up the hype by giving them the entertainment they need to keep things fun. Hire a clown to joke around. Bring in a magician to keep them in awe. Pin the tail on the donkey or have them giddy over musical chairs—any activity will do as long as it’s got all the guests involved.
5. Great Food Equals Happy Tummies
And happy tummies mean happy guests. Cebu City is known for its range of delectable traditional dishes so why not cook some yourself or hire a caterer to do the job? No children’s party will ever be complete without a cake to cap off the moment. If you want quality cakes that are affordable and customizable, Chedz Cakes of Cebu is the ideal choice. A home grown name that has resonated with Cebuanos over the years, leave it to Chedz Cakes to create not only a scrumptious treat but a beautiful symbol of your child’s special day.
Lavish or laidback, what matters most is the happiness of your child. May these tips help you create an unforgettable day for your little one.
