1. You are organising a birthday party for your 8 year old sister. There will be 14 children attending.

You have a budget of $250 and this is final. You have to remain within this set budget.

You task is to

  • design a theme and create a mood board around this theme

  • design and deliver the invitations

  • organise food [ after finding out if there are any dietary requirements of the children attending], and, produce a menu with timings showing when you will deliver the different items

  • organise drinks [make sure that there are low sugar options] 

  • organise activities [see below for more instructions]

  • organise and buy paper plates, cups etc. List down all the things you think you will need, price them and then design the actual party.

  • prepare your home as venue - that includes decorations and cleaning

  • organise photos of the day

  • create a spreadsheet of all your costs

 

What type of party do you think you will organise? Why? Share with a partner.

2. Activities and Games.

Your task is to find 6 very different party games to coordinate and run on the day. You need to have everything ready in advance. Your task is to entertain and involve all the children attending.

Brainstorm 10 games that could be suitable and enjoyable with a partner.

Think through each game and list all requirements. Choose the 6 games that you think will work best.

Write a list of all you will need and check each one off as you organise it. Don’t forget you may need to compile suitable music for some of the games.

3. Share with a partner all your ideas. Collaborate to work out the best party ever!

On paper, show all your planning in as much detail as possible.

4. Share your combined ideas with the class and show your planning.

1. In New York, there is a growing trend for Pop-Up Dining. One famous Pop-Up in NY is "I Forgot It's Wednesday" [IFIW]

I forgot it's Wednesday

Explore IFIW's website.

What are the characteristics of this pop-up? What do they offer clients?

List the details that have to be organised for each monthly event. Share with a partner and develop a flow chart of the details and their timing using Lucid Chart. For example, the time when the menu will be developed; the opening of the online booking; and, the hiring of the venue.
