How to Plan a Birthday Party

Planning a party can be a lot of fun!  With a few prepared steps, you can breeze through the planning and enjoy the party.

  1. Select a date for the party and the venue.  This is the critical first step so that everyone can put a date on their calendars and join you for the fun.  Send out invitations to guests.
  2. Secure vendors like photographers, party rental and supplies, entertainment, etc.  You’ll want to book these in advance so that the vendors can also put the event on their calendars.
  3. Prepare for food and drinks.  Every party needs food and drinks, or at the very least, cake!!  You can make food yourself or have it catered.  Either way, plan ahead and adjust as RSVPs come in.
  4. Plan the details.  This step can be done in the weeks leading up to the party but it’s an important one.  All of those tiny details like party favors (if you’re having them), and water for guests, and where people will store purses, etc.

Aliza’s Second Birthday

I’m so honored to have been asked to capture Aliza’s second birthday party.  To date, I have photographed her baptism, first birthday party, family photos, and now her second birthday party.  I feel like part of the family!  And this family knows how to plan a birthday party!  Attention is paid to every tiny detail, from the personalized water bottles to the food and beverages to the cake and dessert.  Family and friends gathered to celebrate Aliza’s second birthday this past weekend.  As you walked into the home, you were greeted with a personalized book for Aliza that guests could sign and wish her a happy birthday.  She will love to look at this when she’s older!  Guests then mingled while the kids played in the bouncy house and with the bubbles.  Elmo made a special appearance and was a delight for the kids!  After lunch, Aliza dug into her very own cake.  Then it was time for the pinata and candy galore.  At the end of the party, there was time for a few more family photos.  Happy birthday, Aliza!  Your family loves you very much.
