A Throwback to Traditional Values at Kidz birthday parties

Share Post:

When that time of the year comes around. Time to put on a party. A kidz birthday party!

Almost every little person I know lives, eats, sleeps, breathes and dreams only for that very next birthday! That special day when they get to be an entire year better, bigger and older than before. It is their big YAY day and IF you were able to forget the date (impossible, since YOU gave birth to them!) they would surely remind you again and again. And sure, you, more than anyone, want to make it super special for them. But the pressure around children’s parties can be more than a little overwhelming.

It’s all been done (many, many times) before

As the super special date starts to loom in your calendar, you can’t help but wreck your brain, thinking: how can we be different this year? Different from what we did last year, and different from every other classmates’ recent party.

The average pre- or primary school class has about 20 children, which means you and your little ones are probably invited to well over a dozen parties a year. Apart from this being quite an exhausting amount of celebrating, the standard clowns, magicians, jumping castles and balloon sculptures are bound to do the rounds. And you want to do something different! Something really special and fun for your most special one.

Without breaking the bank

Keeping up with children’s birthday party trends and expectations can be a costly affair! After a special present for the birthday boy(s) or girl(s), the catering, venue, decorations, entertainment etc, can all really add up. Maybe there are siblings’ birthdays just around the next corner or in the not so distant past.

You would love to throw the party at home

But the thought of a truck load of little boys aimlessly ploughing through your beautifully furnished living room gives you heart palpitations. Imagine the wreckage! But venue availability is a nightmare and adds to the costs.

Struggling Artist to Franchisor – Arts CAN BE commercially successful

Statistically: Arts graduates do not make money from their craft Many of us fall in love with the idea of stardom, that big role, the West End, Broadway, Hollywood, Oscars. In reality, the percentage of young artists (I use performing arts as a reference above but the same is true for writers, fine artists and all the rest) who truly “make it”, according to this Guardian article, is less than 2%! In other words, the odds of achieving the top of your game in ‘the arts’ is 98% likely NOT to happen for fully qualified artists. Yikes! Fully qualified lawyers,

Metamorphosis into Buzz Franchising

Adapt or Die Buzz was founded in 2012. We still deliver on the same promise and we still use the same tools; drama, dance and singing for kidz to build confidence, boost social skills, be creative and get buzzing. But wow, has this business shape-shifted, changed, adapted, almost died (thanks COVID) and now, thriving! And that is the essence of business, isn’t it? To adapt or die. It is Darwinian. It is cruel because there is only room for the strong, the persistent, the adaptable… to survive. It IS cut-throat and so it should be.  Illusions about franchising If you told me
