Some people are lucky. Theirs and their kids’ birthday parties fall on weekends. Others are not so lucky. If a family member’s birthday happens to fall on a weekday when you will be working 10 hours a day, planning in advance can be a challenge. However, you can always plan such an event with some careful time management skills, and the following tips:
Order the Cake from a Bakery
You will certainly not have time to bake a cake and decorate it while doing a full-time job, unless you can bake really fast. Therefore, it makes sense to order a cake and ask delivery services to bring it to your house. Don’t bother baking a cake and saving it for the special day. You will be eating stale cake that tastes like mould. You can easily order a birthday cake online and have it arrive right at your doorstep on time.
Call a Party Planner
If you need to plan a big birthday party in a rush, you can save time and get things done right by hiring a professional party planner. Of course, this will be a significant expense that needs to be calculated into your budget. But if you can afford it, a party planner will make life so much easy for you. For a large birthday party, a party planner might be necessary, even if it costs more.
Buy Snacks from Outside
Making snacks at home is a luxury for busy working people. Therefore, you should have your party snacks ordered and brought to your home by delivery service Melbourne. Or, on your way home from work, you can stop by a local bakery or a convenience store and buy the snacks you need. Some bakers might need advance notice to make snacks for a small group of people.
Celebrate at a Hotel
If arranging everything at home is difficult for you, find a hotel to take care of the party. The hotel staff will take care of all the planning, serving food and washing plates afterwards. All you have to do will be to choose the cake, the party snacks, a theme and then show up on the special day. It will be worth the money you spend.
If all this birthday planning on a weekday is too much for you, consider asking your employer for a day off. Most employers are understanding and will let you spend your birthday or your child’s birthday with time off from work. Remember, birthdays are happy occasions and no one should stress out too much about them.
