5 Quick Tips to make your Child’s Party Perfect:

May 17, 2018

1)      No need to splash the cash   

When it comes to your child’s special day you don’t need to spend thousands of pounds to make it amazing. There are so many good places out there that are great for parties, here are some of my favourites:


Hobby Craft – Great for Arts and Crafts

Baker Ross – Perfect for activity packs and lots more

Poundland – Amazing for party bag fillers



2)      Planning

Before the event, depending on the theme, give your afternoon some sort of structure. Children’s parties rarely last longer than 3 hours or so. I would suggest something along the lines of:


11:00 – 11:30 – Welcome

11:30 - 12:30 – First Activity

12:30 – 1:00 – Lunch

1:00 – 1:15 – Cake Cutting

1:15 – 2:00 – Second Activity



3)      A few decorations go a long way

There are certain decorations that Pop up, Party & Play always use and they can turn a dark windowless room into a fun play zone. Our answer is bunting, we swear by it as you can see from the picture below. We found balloons can rack up the cost a lot and don't always have the same impact as they are normally situated in one corner of the room.



4)      Let it Flow, Let it Flow!

If things aren’t going to plan don’t worry at all! If the children want to play party games and you have organised arts and crafts that’s ok! The important thing is that they are having fun. Children are so creative and they will find the smallest thing to entertain them for hours!


5)      Helping hand

I always recommend on the day to ask a good friend or your partner to give you a helping hand. Having ten 8-year-old kids running around isn’t always easy. So, having an extra pair of hands who knows the structure of the party is extremely helpful.
