Making Your Banquet Hall Party Kid-Friendly: Tips and Tricks

Making Your Banquet Hall Party Kid-Friendly: Tips and Tricks

Hosting a party in a banquet hall can be a lot of fun, but if you have children attending, it’s essential to ensure the party is kid-friendly. How do you make the banquet hall party kid-friendly? Here are some tips and tricks:

Create a designated play area

Set up a designated play area for children with age-appropriate toys and games. This will give children a space to play and have fun without getting in the way of the adults. Make sure the area is safe and adult-supervised.

Offer kid-friendly food

When planning the menu, include kid-friendly options such as pizza, chicken fingers, and fruit platters. Consider offering a separate menu for children, including smaller portions and easy-to-eat finger foods.

Provide entertainment

Hire a magician, clown, or face painter to entertain the kids. Alternatively, set up a craft station with supplies for children to make their own party favors or decorations. If you can access a projector and screen, consider showing a children’s movie to keep them entertained and engaged.

Keep it safe

Make sure your banquet hall is safe for children. For example, cover sharp edges or corners and secure loose cords or wires. Also, ensure that any potentially hazardous items, such as alcohol or glassware, are out of reach of children.

Have a designated adult supervise children

Designate one or more adults to supervise the children and ensure their safety. These adults can also lead games or activities to keep the children entertained.

It’s essential to ensure that the designated adult is responsible and can handle the responsibility of watching over the children.

Provide goodie bags

At the end of the party, give children goodie bags filled with treats and small toys. This will make them feel special and ensure they leave with a positive memory of the event.

Tips on Holding a Successful Hanukkah Party

Tips on Holding a Successful Hanukkah Party

People attending a Hanukkah party expect to have fun, and a traditional-themed one provides the largest dose of it and more food. That’s the idea!

A Hanukkah party with a traditional theme will often feature decorations such as a menorah and dreidel, and the menu includes a variety of latkes, sufganiyot, and other traditional Hanukkah foods.

For entertainment, it’ll include games such as dreidel spinning and a Hanukkah gift exchange.

Here are some pointers on hosting a successful Hanukkah party:

Time and Location Matters

Pick a convenient date and time for the party that works for most guests. Consider important dates or events, such as school or work schedules, and avoid conflicts with other holiday events.

Also, select a comfortable and accessible location for all guests, which can be a person’s home, a community center, or a rented event space such as Villa Ragusa. Consider the size of the space and the number of guests who will be attending.

Decorate the space with colors and themes associated with Hanukkah, and consider incorporating elements such as a menorah, dreidel, and blue and white decorations.

Next, plan a fun and engaging entertainment and activities. This can include traditional Hanukkah music, games, and rituals, such as lighting the menorah and spinning the dreidel.

The Guest List and Budget

It pays to plan the guest list carefully and invite only the people who are important to you. You cannot invite everyone in your phonebook.

For the event space, consider the size. You need a space that can comfortably accommodate the number of guests you have, and then create a budget and stick to it.

And since the Hanukkah party menu is an essential item of the event, do it right the first time. Therefore, plan the menu and beverages, and include traditional Hanukkah foods, such as latkes, sufganiyot, and gelt. Villa Ragusa allows you to bring your own caterer.

Consider any dietary restrictions or allergies that guests may have.

After a successful event, consider providing favors for guests as a thank-you for attending the party. These can be small, practical items related to Hanukkah, such as chocolate gelt or dreidel keychains.

Above all, make sure to have fun and enjoy the event! A successful Hanukkah party is enjoyable for both you and your guests.
