Kids Party Planner
Having a kids party is fun but not always as easy as you think it should be. We have put this planner together to help you make the processes as easy as possible. the timetable is a rough guide and is there to try and give you ideas to make the party go as smoothly.
4 to 6 Weeks Before
Planning ahead is well worth it. This way you know how many children are likely to be turning up. There is nothing worse than too many or too few turning up for the day. Too many you can just about cope with too few and it can be a disappointment for the child.
How many to invite
If you are going to be booking a venue then you need to decide quite early how many to people you are going to invite. Always worth remembering that in the school holidays some of the children will be away.
Choosing a time and place
If you are not going to be having the party at home then you will need to book a venue. This should be done well in advance to make sure you get the one you want
Deciding on a theme
There are many themes to choose from and we have plenty of them for a boy or a girl. Once you have decided on a theme be it a TV or film party or just some plain colours you have plenty of time to sort out the invitations.
If you are getting in an entertainer again you will need to do this well in advance. Choosing the theme with you child first is worth it as you may not want a clown at a Dr who party and you may want a magician at a Harry Potter Party
3 to 4 Weeks Before
This is the time to make or buy the invitations for the day and send them to the guests.
Games and activities
It is worth having a think about what you want to do and when you want to do it. First decide how long you want the party to last, decide when you are going to be having the food and how you want to end the party.
