Oslo - Parties

Attending a birthday party   
It is expected that both children and adults dress smartly for birthday parties, or if it a sports or outdoor event, more practical clothing would apply. Dress code is often specified in the invitation, as well as the date for an RSVP. Arrive with a card and a present (or money enclosed with the card), promptly. If it is a child's party at home, make sure you take the shoes off before you go in.

Birthday parties  
Traditionally, Norwegian families organize their children's birthday parties at home, but this is changing. The trend of taking the party to another location, such as restaurants and sports clubs, for instance, is increasing. McDonald's and Burger King organize birthday parties, as does Peppe's Pizza restaurant. You may also inquire with other restaurants that welcome children (see Restaurants) if it is possible to have a birthday party organized there. This could be combined with a visit to the cinema or theatre. Swimming pools and bowling alleys would also cater for birthday parties, as would many sports clubs (see Sports).
