5 Tips For An Autumn Party

Organising a party for your child this autumn but need a helping hand? Don’t worry, here’s a quick list of 5 tips.

1. Get The Invites Sent Early
Autumn will be here pretty soon, so it’s a good idea to send the invites as soon as possible that way you can get a good idea of how many guests will be attending; after all you wouldn’t want to buy too much or too few party supplies.

Also, it’s important to be vigilant with regards to the size of the party and how many guests you invite. Don’t feel obligated to invite the entirety of your child’s class to the birthday party, if a large party is out of your budget or you only have a small venue available, a small party with a smaller guest list can be just as fun and allows for the children to be more involved with party games.

2. Organise Some Party Games
Lots of parties follow a theme, so if your child’s birthday party is also following a theme, make sure that any and all games you choose fit in with the chosen theme.

You can keep party games simple such as musical chairs, duck duck goose, and other well known fan-favourites. However, you could opt for something different and instead arrange an activity for your child and their friends, such as a day out to go bowling, you could hire a local sports hall for a sports themed party, or perhaps you could take a trip to your local cinema?

If you’re in need of some additional help choosing what games to play at your child’s birthday party, we recommend reading our blog titled, 8 Great Party Games Ideas For Your Child’s Birthday Party.

3. Be Prepared For Bad Weather
If you’re planning an outside party this autumn, make sure you have a backup plan in case of rain. There are lots of fun games that you can play indoors such as stick the tail on the donkey or you could play indoor bowling with a small ball and some water/pop bottles used as bowling pins.

Alternatively, you could instead choose to play a game of pass the parcel. Our online store has a wonderful selection of readymade pass the parcels to choose from including numerous different themes. So if you are concerned about having enough time to organise the party and build a pass the parcel, don’t worry; browse through our selection of readymade pass the parcels on our online store.

4. Ask Parents For Dietary Information
When organising your child’s birthday party and sending out invitations, make sure that you ask the parents of all guests if anyone has any important dietary restrictions regarding any allergies or intolerances they may have. After all you wouldn’t want to set up a table of delicious arty snacks, only to learn at the post moment that some guests have a peanut allergy.

5. Save Time With Readymade Party Bags
There’s a lot to plan and organise when you’re getting ready for your child’s birthday party. So if you’re looking for a way to save time, we recommend purchasing readymade party bags. We have a diverse selection of pre-filled party bags in a variety of different themes available for purchase on our online store. They’re ideal for parents who are short on time; you can order goodie bags for all the children attending the party in just a few clicks, giving you more time to spend with your children and more time to focus on organising the party.
