There’s no “real” party without a cooler and kids’ birthday parties are not an exception! Your child’s birthday party should be memorable, fun-filled with lots of drinks and meals to feast on. I attended this toddler’s birthday party and beer and wine was served — a parent couldn’t hide their mortification at this huge party faux pas! However, I couldn’t find the justification for this obvious “disapproval”.
As a frequent party host myself, I think the best thing you could do for parents who are just meeting each other for the first time at your kid’s birthday party — is to serve something chilled, cold, and adult-ish that will break the “awkward” ice. Remember, a kids’ birthday celebration isn’t completely about the kids and their friends, you need to factor in the parents who did you a huge favor bringing the “invitees” to your kid’s celebration. So, the best thing you can do to show appreciation, is to make the party worth their while. You sure don’t want to have a party full of bored and restless parents!
While making a kids-approved beverage cooler for the kids, make a separate one for the parents and adults. Fill it with variety of refreshing ice-chilled drinks to keep the adults entertained and in a party mood. It goes without saying that this cooler should be off-limits for the kids and far out of their reach. The kids get their cooler, the adults get theirs and everyone is happy!
