tips on organising a girls birthday party

Decide on the venue for your girl’s birthday party:

If you want to have it at home instead of a custom designed kids birthday venue then here are some tips.

Designate a room for the party but be realistic in your expectations, kids will gravitate to your daughters’ bedroom. Discuss your boundaries with your daughter before hand, so all you need is a gentle reminder once in a while during the party. If you plan to keep children out of the house and in the yard make sure you have cleaned up the dog poop so the kids can play.

Remember to have a wet weather alternative like a garage cleared and ready for use. If you do have a pet be aware that not all kids are comfortable around animals, and that even the gentlest of dogs can get excitable around a group of children.

Have fun girl’s party Invitations

Madfun Kids Birthday Parties supply free pre filled email Kids Party Invitations ready to print with all the information about the venue, date time filled in when you book your party

Birthday girls love to be included in making invitations. Create your own on the computer, just make sure you have all the basics covered –Address, Day, Date and Time, RSVP and Contact Phone Number. If you don’t have a colour printer just decorate them with a few stickers, or print them out on coloured paper.

Don’t be upset if people don’t RSVP – in this day and age where anyone can quickly shoot off a text or email there really is no excuse not to respond to a party invitation. If they haven’t responded you can usually assume they aren’t coming.

Timing:Allow 1 ½ hours for a party for 4-6 year olds, 2 hours for 7-12 year olds.

Kids Birthday Lolly Bags

can be a great craft activity. Have a craft table set aside with felt pens and some stickers ready for the kids to name and decorate their own lolly bags or boxes. Collect them all and pop in your pre-organised lollies to give out as they leave. That will take care of the first 30 mins of your party.

Kids Birthday Presents

You want your daughter to be available to say hello to her guests at the start of the party so leave opening the presents until the end. Otherwise you’ll run out of time for any planned activities, or brand new toys will get lost or broken before she’s had a chance to play with them.

Birthday Party Food

Have drinks especially and a few snacks available throughout the party and then bring out hot food or sandwiches after games are played. Keep it simple – do you really want to be stuck trying to cook party pies in the oven at one temperature and vegetarian pasties at another? If you plan on having parents of guests staying also, again keep it simple, if you put on an amazing spread they’ll feel pressured to do the same for their child’s party. Dips and biscuits work just fine.

Birthday Party Entertainers

Do you want the entertainer to look after the whole group of children at once like a clown or magician? Or are you happy to have a Face Painter who can only look after one child at a time? If you wish to book someone to come to your home have them ready to start at least 15 minutes after the party start time so the birthday girl has time to greet all her guests first, then the entertainer can get and keep everyone’s attention. Most entertainers take cash on the day, so pop it in an envelope on the fridge ready so you’re not running around in a panic. If you’re celebrating say a 3rd birthday but 15 out of the 20 invited guests will be 10 years old it will make a difference, so be sure to let your entertainer know beforehand. Plan to serve hot food or cake before or after, not during, the entertainers show.

When Birthday Cakes Go Wrong

You’ve chosen your cake with care and then disaster strikes. I’ve seen cake boxes get sat on in cars, Ice cream cakes left out of the freezer and pre-ordered cakes just not delivered, or you planned to make it yourself but have just run out of time. Coles and Woolworths have Themed Cakes, Decorated Cupcakes and the good ol’ Fredo Frog Ice-Cream Cake always in stock and very affordable. I’ve never seen a party of kids disappointed in any of these last minute buys. A fantastic cheat tip: get two Woolies or Coles chocolate cakes & pop them on top of each other, surround the outside with KitKats (stick them on with a little bit of icing sugar) and pour mini m&m’s over the top. It looks like an expensive specialty made cake at quarter of the cost AND you won’t be up at 2am trying to make it. Very quick, simple and impressive looking.

If you have any party tips you’d like to share, or even funny stories about when things did not go to plan, please drop us a line so we can pass them on to other mum’s and dad’s.

Happy Partying!

Having a shy child at a children’s birthday party

Having a shy child at a children’s birthday party

When  the kids enter the Madfun room they will be surrounded by light sound and activity and that can be a little bit overwhelming for shy kids when they first walk in. We pay special attention to ensure your children are comfortable and happy so we let them get involved in the party their own way.

If your child is shy it’s best to arrive 5 mins early or at least on time, so your child has few minutes to settle in before everyone joins in.

The big thing with shy kids is to let them become involved at their own pace and don’t push or try to make them join in. At Madfun Kids Discos we have free craft where your child can go off and make something and we also have free Face Painting (arm designs during Covid)  included for every child so any shy kids can do lots of things without immediately going up on the dance floor.

Our party Hostesses are very sensitive to shy kids too and they have been taking care of kids for a long time so they will handle it so both you and your child can relax and have a good time.
