Dealing with Stress of Planning A Birthday

Birthday party entertainment is supposed to cheer everyone up. People at a birthday party are meant to be having a great time, laughing and appreciating the gift of life. Unfortunately, have you ever looked at the parents hosting a birthday party? You probably agree that they often wear the most tired-looking and stressed faces in the entire room. Planning the ultimate celebration for your beloved kid can be tiring. Here’s how you can cut out a great deal of the stress when planning the entertainment.

Get Entertainment That Resonates with Your Life

It is important that you get to the heart of your motivations for throwing the birthday bash. Most of the time it even isn’t about the birthday child. Parents only put up the birthday parties to show off to their friends, colleagues and sometimes even relatives. Other parents hire the entertainment to compensate for things they missed when they were children.

Get birthday party entertainment with a genuine motivation of wanting the kids to have a good time. When you see your kids happy, you will feel happy no matter how tiring the events of the day are. Again, avoid entertainment that reminds you of the current shortcomings in your life.

Get Entertainment That Your Kid Will Enjoy

Always remember that the birthday celebrations are for the birthday honoree. Though everyone should enjoy the party, it is best that you put the priorities of the birthday boy or girl first. Since everyone else at the party wants to make the birthday child happy, they will love that he or she loves the entertainment. If he or she doesn’t like the entertainment, most of his or her friends will most certainly not like it either.

Plan to Your Strengths

It often becomes frustrating when you set up a party that you can’t handle. You, for instance, may invite more guests than the entertainment can satisfy. You must, therefore, be reasonable with the guest list; alternatively, hire more entertainers!

Help Yourself with Hiring a Planner

Use an event planner or hire entertainment through a company that is used to performing at LOTS of events. By doing so, you can take tons of stress off your plate and relax while everyone is having fun. YTE Orlando does its best to make sure that you can sit back and enjoy the Mimosas with your family and friends while the children are entertained by us.

Exciting Activities for A Character-Themed Birthday Party

When you put together a character-themed party, you should look for a skilled professional performer to put on the show. Such people know what to bring to your party to make it delightful to both the children and adults. Here are some of the exciting aspects of hiring a mascot character for a birthday party.

They Come with A Fantastic Music Playlist

Mascot characters are particularly loved because they come with music that appeals to their young audiences. On top of that, the characters sing and often dance to their awesome tunes. History shows that clowns and costume characters often got the structure of their acts from the music they played. Therefore, to make the show exciting, the mascot character will bring in the best songs that children at the party will love. It is advisable that, as the planner of the party, you provide and excellent music system so that everyone can get down when Elmo hits the music play button.

The Party Games Are Wild and Fun

Mascot character entertainers are geniuses when it comes to planning children games. As mentioned, music does form a significant portion of their shows. You can, therefore, expect music-based party games such as musical chairs, musical corners, balloon limbo, hot potato, The Freeze and Odd One Out just to mention a few. Dancing typically accompanies music. Therefore, simple dancing games such as Hokey Pokey and The Chicken Dance will keep the party turned up. Of course, this will be mixed up seamlessly with other traditional games such as The Blob and Duck Duck Goose. The games are often marked with heightened drama which keeps the party spirits flying high.

Kids Will Love the Mascot Character

Some of the best mascot party entertainers never break character unless absolutely necessary. Kids will thus end up being convinced that the Easter Bunny or Sponge Bob is at the party. The performers have mastered even the most minor spoken phrases and mannerisms that kids find entertaining about a certain character. They then capitalize on these to consistently and relentlessly entertain their audience.

Teal and Purple Shower

Baby Shower Balloon Arch with baby on cloud and teddy bearThis baby shower was tons of fun to put together and to plan. We worked off a few photos that the client found online and we tweaked them and changed them until we found a pattern that worked for her, her theme, and the overall ambiance of the party. We ended up making a column to greet people at the door (not pictured), a beautiful baby themed balloon archway to highlight mom’s chair, and we also made a specialty centerpiece for the food table. The picture immediately below is the arch. The teal and lilac balloons swirled with white made for a really great photo opportunity for Josephine and her mother. The foil baby balloon was also on the column outside to help tie some of the balloon decor together and make more sense for those attending the shower.

The highlight of the entire party was possibly the centerpiece on the table. It was the piece most excited about when they called us and it was the piece we were happy that we were able to create for them. Other than a few minor color changes, it was almost an exact replica of the original photo shown to us for inspiration. Luckily, we have a very talented crew able to mimic nearly any balloon design. Though we prefer to make our own unique balloon designs for our clients, we can certainly recreate balloon figures and sculptures that are found elsewhere. So, please do not hesitate to share a design you are interested in if you would like to see it at your event.

Indian Cultural Center Jungle Theme Baby Shower

This was a great event that we had a lot of fun putting together. Between the design process and the actual building of all the decor, we had a blast transforming the Indian Cultural Center into an amazing feat of balloon decoration. It started over a month ago as we planned the Jungle themed decor around the small stage area they would be highlighting. They were looking for palm trees, lions, giraffes, and other jungle animals to accent their party. The client was also interested in making sure the ceilings and the walls were covered with balloons so that the whole room popped with excitement and color.

Getting straight to the fun part, here is a photo of the balloon backdrop we did for the stage as well as the palm tree accents we included. As you can see, we also included some animals and some grass to decorate the floor and the bottom of the stage. This was the centerpiece of the room and where all the focus was directed for the decorations.

Jungle Stage Balloons and balloon wall

On the opposite side of the room, at the entrance after you walk in, you could see another small jungle theme to tie everything together for the room and create a full jungle atmosphere. This scene had a giraffe, palm tree, and a number of little grass pieces for the floor. It also doubled as a photo opportunity for the guests as they entered the room and became engulfed in the forest of balloon trees we set among the venue.

Jungle Giraffe Balloon Column and Palm Tree Decor

On the opposite side of this figure was the door and the main entrance for the guests arriving. We decided upon a very simple entrance with a display piece letting people know it was for a baby shower. This simple piece was to tie the decor together and to give a sneak peak at the fun that was going to be inside the room. It had the “Welcome Baby” foil balloon on top of a column as well as a palm tree behind it. It filled the space between the two sets of double doors and it gave a welcoming atmosphere as people entered the room as well.

Jungle Baby Shower Welcome Baby Foil Balloon Column and Palm Tree welcome baby

The next thing we put together for the baby shower were a number of pieces of ceiling decor which hung around the room. We placed 18 different balloons around the ceiling to accent the space. The light blue and dark blue added to the look of a sky and also tied into the colors of the linens on the tables and chairs. Each of these large balloons was blown up to a whopping two and a half feet in diameter. They were huge and made just as big of an impact as party guests entered the room. In this photo, you can also see a few of the palm trees which sit on the tables and which line the back of the room near the door. It was meant to feel like they were literally walking into a jungle of trees and fun. We kept slightly to a palm tree look as the party was in Florida and we felt it fit their theme nicely. If you look at the back of the room in this photo, you can also see other types of ceiling decor that we did. We put together seven different pieces on either side of the room. It was meant to tie in the forest theme as well as the colors of the other pieces of decor. As you can imagine from this picture, the guests of the baby shower absolutely LOVED the balloons we put up for them.

The decorations were finished up with about 12 different balloon palm tree centerpieces spread throughout the room. Each and every tree had a different animal represented on it. There were monkeys, tigers, elephants, geckos, snakes, and even a sloth! We took time to twist something special for each and every table getting a centerpiece. Below are a few of my favorite ones that were photographed. We did not get photos of all of them as we had another event to get to, but it was still tons of fun to twist them. The next day, before the event started, we came back and added some more to the pieces shown below. We added a second animal to each tree. So, some also got parrots, ladybugs, or something extra. The double animals made for a much more substantial centerpiece and we feel looked much better as they accented the tables.
