It’s not the era of the same old birthday cakes. It's now important that the cake at your party makes a statement. It should also have a design that reflects the overall theme of your party. If your little girl is a fan of Barbie, then that might be the theme of the party and a classic 'Barbie silhouette' might be the shape of your cake. If your grown-up son is a race fan, then NASCAR could be the theme, with the cake designed in the shape of a car or race track. If there are a large amount of guests attending your party, your will need a two-tier or three-tier cake.
2. Serve Fun Drinks
Try serving interesting cocktails, mocktails or innovative shakes topped with ice-cream. This is sure to be a hit among children who are attending as well as adults. Who can resist the beauty of a glass filled with chocolate, ice-cream and topped with a cherry?
3. Wet their Appetite with Delicious Appetizers
Starters or appetizers play a pivotal role in any birthday party. Be it a children or adults, guests just love to fill themselves up with enticing starters. The specific appetizers that are served at your party should also fit with the overall theme of the birthday celebration. Some creative appetizer ideas are Smoked Salmon Potato Chips, Bratwurst Sliders and Ahi Tuna Towers.
4. The Main Course is Crucial
Again we refer to the overall personality of the guest and theme of the birthday party. If your birthday boy or girl loves movies and you have selected a 'Hollywood' theme, then try serving a main course that reminds them of their favorite film(s).
5. 5-Star Candy Bar
Having a candy bar at your birthday party is just the way to tell your guests and honoree how 'sweet' they are. The most popular sweet treats that could be offered to guests at your party are a variety of candies, cake pops, sugar sticks, etc. A candy/sweet treat bar will add an additional layer of excitement to your party and the treats should be arranged according to your theme.
6. Add a Decadent Dessert Menu
Some might feel that having a cake and candy/sweet treat bar is sufficient for your party but that’s not true. Having a side dessert menu can complete your entire birthday party. When it comes to a desert menu, think creatively! If you are having a '50s' themed party, delicious cheese cake, served in various flavors or hot fudge sundaes are great ideas.
