Birthday Party Welcome Speech

Birthday parties are truly special for the person whose birthday is being celebrated. Organizing birthday parties is a popular activity nowadays, but these days, even welcome talks are arranged by the individual or by someone close to him or her, such as the individual's parents, brother, sister, or close friends. We have provided a few lines on birthday party speeches for students of Classes 1 to 12. Students can refer to the below-given speeches to get an idea of how to write a birthday speech for their friends, family, or school essay.


You don’t have to stick to the exact format. If you want to improvise, then go ahead! In case you are a beginner and need some assistance with introductions, then read through the whole article as we have presented various options for you to pick from. Either way, this article can help build your structure for a killer intro!

Long Welcome Speech for Birthday Party

First Example

So, at long last, it's my birthday, the day I've been looking forward to for so long. I couldn't be happier today because everyone is here, from my family to my friends, to fill my heart with joy and to bless me. The best part is that no one is missing, and everyone has shown up today. Thank you all so much for taking time out of your busy schedules to help me and make this celebration more graceful. Indeed, this goes above and beyond what I could have asked for.  


On my eighteenth birthday, I'd like to say a few words before we begin the cake cutting ceremony, especially for my parents. Mom and Dad, I barely have the words to express my love for you.


I've been sent to the best school for my education, and by God's grace, I've made such great friends who are truly like a second family to me. I pray to God for my parents' health and happiness. May they smile for the rest of their lives! Last but not least, I want to express my gratitude to my friends, who have been of tremendous assistance to me and have stood by me through difficult times.


My confidence had dropped to an all-time low, and I wasn't doing well in school; at that point, my friends yanked me out of that slump and forced me to recognize my efficiency levels. That is the value of friends. They're the ones who take the fun out of your life and turn you into a horde of drama queens. They keep you going.


So thank you all for being a part of my life, and thank God for blessing me with such a wonderful family and friends. 


Honestly, I think words are not enough to express how grateful I am to be a part of your life. Lastly, I would like to thank my sister for supporting me, always. You are a remarkable 16-year-old young lady. You have a great sense of self-sufficiency that I admire and respect. Whether you're spending hours at the "Math Club" or obsessing over every detail of any school project, you have the power to thrive. You inspire me to be the best version of myself.


Now, without further ado, I'd like to conclude my remarks and politely request that everyone proceed to the main corridor for the cake cutting ceremony. Dinner will be served after that, and there will also be a dance party for all of my friends who want to shake their legs.


I am confident that you will all appreciate our efforts and assist me in making my birthday even more memorable. 


Thank you for joining us today! Your presence means the world to me.

Second Example

Hey everyone!


Thank you so much for coming! I couldn’t think of anyone better to celebrate my birthday with other than you all. This year has been quite eventful and it was not easy for me. I am so thankful to my parents for helping me and being there by my side throughout this journey. I wouldn’t be the person I am today if it wasn’t for them.


I am so proud of my friend's circle because I know I found something genuine and this is the group that I want to stick with through life. These guys have been there with me through my highs and lows and they are the funniest bunch of people I have ever known in my life. They can make fun of the most boring thing and I have the best entertainment that I could have ever asked for.


To everyone else that is present here, I am grateful to have you in my life and I hope we all can have a great time today and make millions of memories. We are just getting started and please make sure that you eat and go as we have some exciting snacks and dishes cooked up for you! Thank you.

Short Birthday Speech in English

Good Evening! 


As we gather to celebrate my daughter's 15th birthday, I'd like to extend a warm welcome to everyone. So, my little girl has turned fifteen, and it's weird because I can't believe how quickly she's grown up. It seems like it was only yesterday that she used to walk with us holding our hands. 


As guardians, we think it's amazing. I will try my best not to stress her out but I won't go all soft on her, and we'll just talk about her mischief today. Try not to be surprised; I assure you that you will not be humiliated.


We've watched you grow up, taking those first steps, bumbling, stumbling, and getting back up again. Furthermore, I would now consider you to be a confident young woman full of hopes and aspirations, ready to take on the world. It fills me with joy to see our wonderful little girl blossom and experience childhood right before our eyes.


Honey, every time you do the right thing for us with your honorable discussions and attempts, you surprise us and we thank God for blessing us with you. It's safe to say that today is one of the most significant days of our lives.


I know without a doubt that one glorious day, a long time from now, you will reflect on this wonderful day, and a big grin will appear on your face. As a result, we can make the most of it and create unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime.


Last but not least, I'd like to express my gratitude to each one of our guests for attending our daughter's birthday celebration. The celebration would not have been as energizing if you hadn't all been near. You've all multiplied the fervor’s remainder, so the celebrations can begin right away.


I owe you a significant debt of gratitude for being such a patient audience.


Wishing you good health and a lot of love!

Second Example

Good evening people!


What a day! I still remember crying my eyes out seeing my little boy struggling to open his eyes as the light was too strong for him to bear. Somehow this is the day every mother dreads and loves because her little baby is all grown up now. I am so grateful to be your mother and today I hope you will know how loved and appreciated you are by every single person here. Well, not just today but every day, however since today is your birthday, you can get all the special treatment and extra love.


I hope you grow up to be a man of honor, integrity and discipline. May you respect everyone despite their opinions, gender, values and belief system. You always stood your ground for what you believed in and I love that about you. Don’t let anyone change that. May you be humble enough to accept growth and change in life but also confident and bold enough to not let people walk all over you or be naïve.


Your heart to help people regardless of what they’ve done inspires me. Don’t let the darkness of this world ever step onto your light. Don’t let your goodness be based on people’s actions towards you. I am so proud of you and I hope you will find everything that you are looking for!


Enough life lessons for today, now let's show this boy what real fun looks like in life!

  15.  We all need to show our support and love to him as he has no idea what’s about to him.


Birthday parties provide an opportunity for children to socialize outside of the classroom. They are not required to sit quietly at their desks, nor are they involved in academic activities. Instead, they're having fun and participating in activities that everyone enjoys. The welcome speech for the Birthday party is a way to show your gratitude towards all the guests and share your thoughts on the occasion.


It also helps set the tone for the party. It is very important to make sure that the introduction is lively and fun as it will create a sense of anticipation and excitement among the audience. All the elements of the party shouldn’t be given away at once as there won’t be any sense of mystery. Instead, the MC (Mic Controller) should make the guests aware of the fact that there might be some fun activities or surprises like a treasure hunt or a scavenger hunt but he should make sure to hold on to the fun details of it!

Welcome speeches can be personal as well as informal as this will create more connection between the guest and audience. Humor is a vital part of any speech, party, event etc. Nobody likes a monotonous speech, especially children. The MC should captivate everyone with quirky remarks or silly jokes as this will help keep them engaged. It's all about making the party fun and memorable for the birthday boy/girl as well as the guests.

Being an MC and speaking well is not as complicated as it seems to be. Just follow the phrases and tips given and create a structure for yourself. Let the rest just follow as you go forward with the program.
