The Best Time For A Birthday Party

✅ The first thing you need to decide on is a date and time. So just when is the best time for a birthday party? That depends on a number of things.


✅ Most people want to have their birthday party on a weekend afternoon. This is a good time for a party, but many times it interferes with other activities such as soccer games, family outings, other birthday parties, etc.

✅ Also, the best entertainers usually fill their weekend schedules first. If you want to have a party on a Saturday or Sunday, plan it as far in advance as you can. Saturday mornings are becoming more popular because that time interferes with fewer activities and when the party is over, the rest of the day is free.

✅ Weekdays, however, are becoming popular party days too. Weekday parties are not only a great day to break up the weekend, but they also leave your weekends free for other activities.


✅ Plan a few dates that you would like to have the party. Check your child’s activity schedules to make sure that it doesn’t interfere with the party. Also, make sure most of your child’s friends can make it to the party.


✅ If you want to use the recreation center in neighborhood or subdivision, then make sure to reserve the space as far in advance as you can. This goes for the social hall at your house of worship also. These convenient and low cost options can get booked far in advance so put your request in fast.
