How to Plan Out Your Next Big Birthday Party: Our Guide

Home / Blog / How to Plan Out Your Next Big Birthday Party: Our Guide

Your birthday only happens once a year, so it’s only right to celebrate it big! If you’re in charge of your own birthday party plans or planning a big birthday party for someone else, we will help you with the preparation process. 

In this guide, we have listed all the things you need to take care of so that you wouldn’t miss anything when the big day comes. 

Let’s get to it!

1. Decide on the Birthday Party Venue

The first thing you need to take care of is the venue. There are many options you can choose from. You can hold the party at a house (it can be yours or someone else’s), outdoors (like parks, beaches or picnic areas) or you can rent a venue (like a pub, clubs or function centres). 

The place really depends on your preferences. Just make sure that it is available on your special day and can accommodate the number of people you will invite.

2. Think About Your Menu

Of course, you have to feed your guests. A party is not a party without good food. Once you’ve thought about your birthday party menu, you have three options to make that menu come to life. The first one is to hire a caterer. Caterers will come into any of your event spaces. They will prepare and serve the food, and some even take care of the cleaning. 

The second one is to cater the food yourself. If you are okay with all the hassle and preparing the food all by yourself, then it’s okay to choose this one. But remember, it’s your day, so don’t stress yourself out and just ask others to do it for you. 

Lastly, you can have a venue caterer or a restaurant. This option is only available if your chosen venue has one. Some may have an in-house caterer, or perhaps you’ve decided to do it in a restaurant. If that’s the case, then you don’t have to worry about anything about your birthday party food. 

Also, don’t forget about the drinks. Make sure that you have all kinds of beverages to offer for your guests.

3. Have a Birthday Party Theme

To make your party more memorable, try to set a theme. It can be your favourite movie or tv show, your favourite colour or anything you want. After all, it’s your birthday, so you get to decide what theme the party should be. You can have interesting photos to keep if you see your guests all dressed up according to your party’s theme. 

4. Include an Entertainment Area

Aside from music, you can also include other things to keep your guests entertained. One of the best things you can try is the photo booth. Your photo booth will surely be a big hit for everyone as they can have a memorable keepsake from your party. 


Planning your birthday bash shouldn’t be that hard. All you need to do is follow this guide so that you can plan out your birthday party perfectly. While your guests should enjoy your party, you should also enjoy it yourself. After all, it’s your day, so the attention and fun should be on you and with you.
