To make things a little easier here are a few tips to help ease the pressure…


If you are choosing a children’s birthday party ‘theme’ then make sure it’s suitable for boys and girls.

Plan ahead – don’t leave sending out the birthday party invitations to the last minute as people may already be booked up.

Get help – ask some relatives to help (friends etc.) to give you a hand before, during and after the birthday party.

Have plenty to do – children get bored quickly so you need to keep them busy. Why not vary the options you organise for their birthday party: keep their interaction varied.

Write the names of each child on sticky address labels and stick them on as they arrive. They may not stay on for the duration of the party long, but you’ll have a better idea of who’s who at the beginning.

Take down the contact details for the parents. Many parents stay at the birthday party, but some readily welcome the chance to escape!
And finally, make sure you have some takeaway menus and maybe a bottle of wine handy for the evening as you’ll probably be happy to just collapse and recover after it’s all over!

Don’t worry, if you want to outsource the stress – we can help!
