How To Organize An Intimate Birthday Party?

Birthdays parties are always fun; both for the person for who it is for, and for the one who organizes it. It is especially fun, if it happens exactly as you want. If an intimate party is what you want, then here are a few tips to help you achieve that…

  • Decide how small a party you want – how small should the party be for you to make it feel intimate? If this is the birthday party of a spouse, then a party for two would be perfect. But if you want to include a few more people, you need to decide the exact number of guests before starting on any other part of the organizing. Knowing if you are going 2 or 20 guests will also help you decide if you’re doing the food and the decorations yourself…or hiring professional help like afternoon and morning tea catering Sydney.
  • Hand made invitations – nothing says intimate and personal more than hand made invitation cards. Sure, video message invitations are now more “in”; but not very personal. Not unless you plan on making personalized video messages for each of your guests. So tap into your inner creativity and pull out those stationary supplies and get to it! who knows…you might even find a new hobby!
  • Cake or cupcakes; dinner or tea? – this again, depends on the birthday boy or girl’s preferences, and the number of guests you plan on inviting. If you are opting for a romantic, candle lit occasion, then dinner is perfect. If you are opting for a relaxed event with less than 10 guests in mind, then opt for a tea party with professionally done high tea catering. If you decide on the later option, consider having the even unfold in the comfort of your home and garden. This sort of even is ideal in the picnic like setting.
  • Find the ideal location – if your home is not an option, then you need to find the right location and venue to host your event. A high end restaurant with a personal room will be perfect for a group less than 10. If you are not going to be fussing with the likes of cakes or fancy foods, then even your favorite bar could be the ideal location for your birthday bash. This, of course, again depends on who the birthday event is planned for…
  • Knowing how to control your decorative flare – one of the things that will turn your intimate affair into something bigger than you want, is the decorations you chose for the event. Try to keep a lid on your creative and decorative flare. If you let it out of hand, you will definitely come to regret it…
