Planning the Best Kids Birthday Party in Charlotte

Dailypost130 343

The first birthday party I threw for my son, I invited at least 30 people. Mind you these were not all kids, but rather a lot of aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends, and even a favorite daycare teacher. We had a big cookout that left my husband sweating over a grill in the dead of summer, and me bouncing around trying to be sure all the guests had what they needed. Was it fun? Yes! Was it a lot of work? Yes! And will he remember any of it? No, but I do, and I really appreciated each and every person who came to celebrate our guy and our family.

This year my son is ready for something different, and so am I. I’m ready to take the bash (and the trash and mess) away from my house and to one of the great birthday party venues in Charlotte. I’m also glad the digital invitation exists and am downsizing the goody bag. Whether your style is big or small, the July issue is about how to make a birthday party special for your child at more than 35 Charlotte family attractions. To get your party planning started, we came up with themes with venues to match that we think take the cake, including:

Go Wild: Animal-Themed Birthday Party Ideas

In Motion: Transportation-Themed Birthday Party Ideas

Splashy Bash: Summer Birthday Party Ideas

Good Sport: Sports-Themed Birthday Pary Ideas

Give Back: Creating a Charitable Party With Purpose
