Looking to organise a children’s party?
Maybe you’re short on idea’s or cash or both!
This blog has been written to provide you with a brief set of hints and tips when organising an event or child’s party.
Firstly once you have decided on a date and time scale, decide on a venue. Would you like the event to be at your home. Plus points is that the event could work out cheaper or provide you with more money in your budget for other things.
If screaming kids in your house doesn’t appeal to you, why not check out the local community centres, social clubs, children’s play centres etc.
Your venue needs to be suitable to hold all your guests and provide enough room for activities. For example, a bouncy castle from SJ Leisure may be 10ft tall so does the room allow for this high item? Maybe, an indoor bouncy castle, under 9ft, would be more suitable.
Secondly, decide on how many guests will be invited and send invitations early to allow guests to make your event part of their plans. Make sure these invitations are clear and concise, detailing venue address and event timings. Maybe you could add a little google maps route.
Next, decide on entertainment, children’s entertainer? DJ? Pamper party? Bouncy castle? Party games?
Sometimes a selection depending on budget can be the best option so that children have a range of activities to keep them interested.
Other points that need to be addressed include party food and drink, check guests have no allergies or special dietary needs.
Little tips from us would be to plan in advance with a clear budget, be sure of event venue, times and available space.
Try to book as much as possible with one firm, looking to book a bouncy castle and mascot costumes? Companies such as SJ Leisure offer both and will provide discount for multiple item hire, also you have less companies you need to remember details of and also less deliveries.
Be sure that any company you use has all the correct safety procedures in place such as public liability insurance etc.
As a last point, the cheapest option isn’t always the best. In the case of bouncy castles, cheaper bouncy castles are usually cheaper due to poorer quality or because they are becoming worn and not as new as they should be. The company may not also have the right insurance or experience.
