5 tips to minimise birthday party stress
Here are some ways to minimise the stress of organising and hosting a birthday party and make the day fun – for all.

Birthday parties are stressful. Ask me, I know. Just this weekend we didn't throw my son a birthday party. We "just had cake and tea" for his grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins (who number around 16 people) and that was stressful as is.

So I can't imagine what it's going to be like when we throw him an actually birthday party next year when he turns three.

Thankfully Elle, from our favourite YouTube channel What's Up Moms, has 5 tips to ensure that your next party is a little less stressful.
