Forward planning is the key to creating a successful event. If you’re longing to do something fun for your birthday this year, but are beginning to feel overwhelmed by all the things you have to organise, keep reading. Here at Solid State UK, we have put together a list of helpful tips so you can breeze through your birthday plans.


Before you move forward with your birthday plans, you need to ensure you set a clear budget. By setting a limit on the amount you are willing to spend, you can easily keep track of every outgoing, whilst calculating how much you will have left over for other things.

When you begin planning your own or someone else’s birthday party, it can be very tempting to overspend every time you spot something you know would complement the chosen theme. However, a clear budget serves to ensure you only purchase items that will be perfect for the event, without overdoing it on extra accessories you don’t truly love.

Time Your Invites Right

Whether you plan to host a huge event with both friends and family or a more intimate occasion with only those you are closest to, you will want to ensure that those on the guest list can actually attend.

By timing your invites right, you will provide your guests with plenty of notice that will help them work your birthday plans around their other possible commitments.

Try to give your guests at least 3 weeks notice before the event and up to 5 weeks notice if a certain costume or fancy dress piece will be required.

Size up Your Venue

If you’re hiring a venue to hold your birthday party in, be sure to measure up the space before hiring decorations. You don’t want to spend half of your budget on a huge display, only to find out that it won’t fit in the room. If you’re looking for a smaller venue, but can’t find anywhere convenient, you may consider asking the venue owner if you could use a partition or room divider to make the space feel a little more intimate.

The team at Solid State UK have been providing a wide range of services to help you finalise your birthday plans for many years. We understand how to make your event special and welcome you to contact us for more information. Call today on 0116 2885956.
