Last Jacob's party, I was very keen with the party host regarding this.. But, on the event itself, I just let them to their thing.. It's not my business anymore..:)
It's a first birthday party so I asked for some alterations with the program they presented to me.
I always take note of the time the program starts. So with the invitation, instead of putting
"4 o'clock sharp", I opted for " The program starts at 4pm". So that, the guests knew that there will be a pre-party activity for the kids aside from the program proper. If they want to be part of it, they'll arrive earlier. End result, most of my guests came before 4pm - success indeed!
For the program, we followed this. (1st Birthday Party Program)
Welcoming of the Guests
Balloon Twisting/Coloring Contest /Story telling
Table Magic/ Practice of action songs
PARLOR GAMES for kids & ADULTS
Bubbly host from Lambert Flores' team. Sure knows how to entertain the guests!
Optical Illussion Show
CAKE BLOWING/GROUP PICTURE TAKING
Where are you, daddy? :)
The BUBBLE ARTISTRY & BUBBLESHOW
Distribution of Give Away bags/Souvenirs/Others
END of the PARTY
Take note of the Cake Blowing - in a usual party program, it's usually on the end/last part of the program, but i asked them to move it a bit earlier, my baby might be asleep during those times (though that didn't happened :) - Jacob really enjoyed his party).
