If you are looking to throw a birthday party that your daughter or son will remember for months to come, a bowling party might be just the right thing for you. Bowling parties are inexpensive but can be a lot of fun. You don’t have to do most of the planning and can instead focus on other things going on in your life. If you want to do it up right, here are a few ideas to truly capitalize on an outstanding bowling party.
Get the Supplies You Need
Think about any supplies that you will need to make the party a real hit. This might include special napkins and cups for the birthday celebration. Decorations are also a great idea to take a party from fun to out of this world. If you’re going to host your party at a bowling alley, make sure you check what items you can bring in for your party. Think about things like bowling balloons or even small trophies for those who win games.
Build Fun Invitations
Get your guests excited for the upcoming party by offering a creative invitation. You can personalize them yourself with simple things like adding a bowling sticker. If you want to go further, you could make handmade invitations in the design of a bowling ball or pins. Everyone will be excited to come when these come in the mail. Make sure you decide on a venue first so you can include it with the note.
Consider Matching T-Shirts
Something that little children enjoy is matching with their friends, which makes matching bowling shirts a great idea. This will make everyone feel like a team. You can get inexpensive bowling tees and add a pin or have the children’s names added to the shirt. This has an added benefit in that it also makes it easy to look around and see the children from your group. This is useful if the bowling alley happens to be pretty busy when you hold the party.
Think About Snacks & Beverages
If you are at a bowling alley, there will be concessions which make feeding the group a cinch. Some of them will even have special party packages that offer food along with a game of bowling and laser tag. Most bowling centres will allow you to bring in a cake, but make sure other snacks are allowed if you decide to bring them in. There’s another plus in that the adults can choose what they want to eat from the offerings at the venue.
Bowling parties can be an outstanding idea for a birthday but adding on some extras will make it even more fun. Think about some of these ideas while planning your child’s party and ensure it’s a good time for everyone who comes.
