Greetings and welcome back to TheMeetUpSG Blog!


Majority of you are aware of the services we provide and that we go above and beyond to meet our customers’ expectations for any type of event. When it comes to Birthday Events, we are even more careful due to the several requests of our beloved customers that we have to take note of. Also, this ensures that we do not run into any hiccups on the actual day!


In this article, we will share some insights and some key information that you REALLY need to know when planning for a smooth and joyous Birthday Event. Don’t worry, we are not perfectionists too so let’s learn together, shall we? ;)


Definitely, all of us want our birthday events to go as smooth as possible. Hence, we have to take certain factors into greater consideration to guide us into planning a memorable event. However, we should also take note of what we should not be doing while planning a birthday event.


Here are the 10 Things to NOT do when planning Birthday Events:


1. The golden rule is to never plan an event at the last minute, that’s a big NO!

Planning an event too close to the date can make you panic with all the nitty gritty details that you have to organise. Also, you might miss out on important components of an event.



2. Ordering your FOOD a few days before the event is a bad idea.

Food and desserts play a key role in birthday events. Ordering food at the last minute is not a good idea as caterers might already have orders on the same day and you might not be able to find a suitable caterer for your event. Remember to order in advance! P.S. We also do Catering! DM us for more info, by clicking here.



3. Do not decide on the VENUE after the entire planning of the event.

The location of a birthday event helps picture the aesthetics and theme for an event! The birthday decorations and theme should match accordingly to the venue. Deciding the venue after the event might result in you having to scrap what you have planned before, which means wasted time!



4. Always never depend on only one SUPPLIER for your quotes and credibility.

If that one supplier backed out on you at the last minute, it would be difficult for you to find a similar caterer that fit the theme of the party. Always have your alternatives and backup plans in case of emergency like us - TheMeetUpSG ;)


5. Do not neglect the selection of the appropriate GUESTS for your event.

Choosing the wrong guests can lead to unhappiness and unwanted tension during your event.


6. Never send INVITATIONS to guests when you’re only TWO weeks
