A spring 2008 survey by General Mills, Inc. asked parents how they select a birthday party theme for their birthday boy or girl. Here are some typical responses:
“For a child’s party, I usually ask the child if they want a theme or a certain character.”
I decide the food a week or so in advance and try and get things most will like.”
“Just think of something fun for everybody involved.”
“As a parent, one of the best gifts I can give my child in an incredible party,” said Ann Stuart of The Betty Crocker Kitchens. “When planning the food and activities for themed parties, it is important to enjoy the party-giving experience so it’s memorable for both parents and kids. After all, birthdays only come around once a year. ”
