The prerequisite for a children’s birthday party outdoors is nice weather. If the sun is shining, success is guaranteed, so the months from April to September are best for this. If the weather forecast is still bad, then you should always have a plan B. A terrace with a roof or at least a party tent are recommended in this case. That way, even if it rains, guests won’t get soaked to the bone.

If you have your own garden, then you can have the birthday party at your home. A lawn, some garden furniture and trees should ideally be available. The lawn is perfect for fun games, you can design the garden table as a festive table and the trees will perfectly fit the exhibition of children’s birthday party decorations. If you have chosen this option, then you need to clean up the garden before the party. Tools such as rakes and hoes should be put away in the garden shed, so that there is no risk of injury to the little guests.

Even if your backyard is unsuitable or you don’t have one at all, you shouldn’t forgo an outdoor party. Public parks or other green spaces in or out of town are perfect for the occasion. Many parks even have dining tables and benches for you to use. However, if you decide to have a birthday party in the park, please protect the environment! Collect your trash and throw it only in the bins provided!

Regardless of whether you celebrate the children’s birthday in your own garden or in the park, a suitable decoration should not be missing. Even a motto always goes down well and gives the whole party a clear structure. Children’s birthday parties with a theme are very popular with both big and small children and to some extent also facilitate the parents. The theme serves as a practical guide for decorations, food, drinks and games. All that is needed is a little creativity.
