3 Tips for a Stress-Free Birthday Party

Posted on Jun 12, 2015

It's always exciting to celebrate your child's birthday, but sadly, the hustle and bustle of party planning and entertaining can often overshadow your enjoyment of those special moments. After rushing around to clean the house, buy and prepare food, decorate, and set up activities, excitement may be replaced by exhaustion. Not to mention the fact that you'll have to clean up after all of those cake-fueled kids afterwards just to get your house back to normal!

Fortunately there's a way to make your child's birthday wishes come true without running yourself ragged. Book a party package at Monkey Joe's Winter Park! Our indoor inflatable playground and party center is loved by kids and parents alike. Kids love jumping, sliding, and exploring the inflatables, while parents love that we take care of it all, from set up to clean up.

We're pros at this, which is why so many parents choose us to host their kids' birthday parties in Winter Park. But for those who aren't party professionals, read on for some more tips to de-stress party planning.

  • Be realistic about what your child will enjoy. Choose an age-appropriate activity and take into account your child's personality. For instance, young kids often get overwhelmed by large groups, so keep the guest list small for little ones. Our Mini Monkey Zone is designed just for kids up to 3 years old, so your little one can have just as much birthday fun as the big kids, in a safe and toddler-friendly environment.
  • Don't stress over the invitations. These days most people are fine with a digital invitation via e-mail, and they can't lose it like a physical invitation. However, if you want to send out invitations the old fashioned way, we provide free invitations with your party booking.
  • Simplify the decorations. Yes, we know it's fun to collect party ideas on Pinterest, but your kid probably won't even notice that custom bunting you spent hours on. Keep decor simple and focus on having fun with your child. When you have your party at Monkey Joe's you don't even have to worry about decorating because we have a decorated private party room all ready to go!
