• Organising venues, entertainers and hireage should be done before setting the date and time
  • Write each child’s name on their cup to reduce the number of misplaced cups
  • Multiple activities can be fun but also overwhelming if done simultaneously
  • Personalising party favour bags adds a special touch
  • When planning an outdoor party have a backup venue in case of inclement weather
  • Avoid scheduling during school holidays when everyone is away
  • Avoid scheduling on days with large special events e.g. Santa Parade
  • Send your invites at least three weeks in advance
  • Involve the parents in party activities
