Planning what to do for a toddler's birthday party is no easy feat. Based from experience of attending several kiddie parties, the following must be taken into consideration:
The Time: The party must not be longer than 2 hours and it shouldn't be during your child's nap time. You don't want a cranky and whiny celebrant.
The Venue: It should be spacious and accessible for guests, especially for those with young children.
The Activities: This should be appropriate to the age groups attending the party. Better yet, this should focus on what your child really likes. Don't choose a theme based on what you want; choose it based on your child's interests.
The Food: Again, this will depend on your guests. It is important to have a sit-down party especially if there are plenty of children in attendance. Having a buffet is a big no-no.
The Giveaways / Goody bags: I highly suggest that loot bags for the kids contain useful materials; not sweets or candies. This is just my 2 cents because we don't promote consumption of refined sugar. It would be great to give away coloring materials or other items which they can use later on (and not just meant for display).
Given all these considerations, we decided to throw Kara a Jollibee Party. She loves Jollibee - not just the food but also Jollibee himself. I have never had a Jollibee party myself and I guess, this is my way of fulfilling a dream. LOL.
I was pleasantly surprised to find out how EASY AND CONVENIENT it was to book a party! Online Booking is available NATIONWIDE.
After you select the store and the date of the event, the system will tell you the available time slots. Do take note of the different room capacity per store while selecting.
Once you've selected the venue, time, and date, you can select the theme of the party, the loot bag contents, and the meals. Everything can be customized - from the content of the party bags to the meals to be served. Since majority of our guests are adults, we selected the following for the meals:
! piece Chicken Joy with Rice
The cost per head for the venue, the styling, and the food was Php 224 and we have around 100 guests. The party fee for the giveaways was only P1,500 so our total spend for booking the party was less than P25,000!!!!!
Previously, I spent that same amount for Kara's party on styling alone. What's more, there will be a program and a host. Based from what I've heard and witnessed from the Jollibee parties we've attended, guests including the celebrant had such a blast. There were games for kids and for adults.
By the way, we selected their 1000th store because it has the biggest space available and there is ample parking for guests. After paying the down payment online (worth P3,000), you just need to visit the store you booked to sign the contract and collect the invites. The remaining balance will be paid on the actual date itself.
There you go! I hope you find this post helpful. Can I just say, I'm so excited to see Jollibee and the other mascots dance!!! hahaha I'm sure everyone will enjoy :)
