Children’s parties need not be a hassle. Instead of clambering up to adult-sized chairs and tables, let the little ones slide easily into their kiddy-sized table and chairs. They will love feeling all grown-up at the party.
Catering to Kids
If you are in the food catering business, you have to meet all the requirements of your clients for weddings, baptisms, school fetes, children’s parties, etc. For the latter, you need children’s table and chairs. It would complete the entire look for a child’s birthday party set up outdoors.
To break from the traditional pink and blue children’s table and chairs, you can request the supplier for custom colors to match with your business logo. You can have varying shades of reds, yellows, and greens. Be prepared with matching plastics – plates and cups, spoons and forks.
You will also need to match your menu to the eat-list of the kids. Perhaps you’ll have funny face cookies, ice cream, and a big birthday cake. You will also need to come up with better birthday party bags. Kids are becoming precocious when it comes to the coveted party bags. But all these would depend on the budget.
For very special catering projects, you can spruce up the children’s table and chairs. Tie balloons to each chair or place a party token on the table, one for each child at a four-seater table. You can also add little party pillows on the seats. Parents will thank you for this consideration.
Preparing for a child’s birthday bash
When there is an order of a children’s party, get the number of kids who will be going to the party. Also check out the number of boys and girls if the parents opt for the traditional blue and pink party theme.
You can also introduce the multi-colored theme. Ask them if they would like to have children’s table and chairs of different colors. If you have pictures of previously catered parties with this theme, show them. There is no doubt parents would go for it.
Check out the venue days before the party. You must be aware of the land if the party is to be held outdoors. Check the distance of the venue to the kitchen if you are allowed to use the family kitchen indoors for your goodies. When this has been confirmed, orient your staff.
Parties like these hold a lot of surprises. Be prepared for these. You may need extra plates, chairs, and tables. Perhaps you have hired a clown. Check his schedule and if he is new, ask for a demonstration of his work. You may add a few tricks yourself. Also, time how long it takes you to get from your place to the party site.
On the morning of the event, set up the venue with the children’s table and chairs and add all the party trimmings that would delight any child. With everything considered, you are ready for the party.
For your own kids’ parties, stock up on children’s table and chairs in colors they have personally chosen. For a personal touch, you can have their names painted alternately to prevent squabbles. How about that?
