Love them or loathe them, one thing is for sure most children will want a birthday party. Gone are the days of children happy with a finger buffet, birthday cake, pass the parcel and a balloon to take home so why not earn a living from them and start a childrens birthday party business?

Children’s birthday parties UK are big business and a great business to get into. Perhaps you have never thought about a business in party and special event planning. If you are a born organiser and enjoy events a business in this lucrative sector may be right for you.

Children’s Birthday Partys business ideas UK include themed events, arts and crafts, science parties, bouncy castles, BBQ, soft play, magicians, hiring entertainers, discos, pony rides even driving experiences such as go-kart parties.

Pressure is on parents to come up with innovative ideas to keep their little ones happy, many parents turn to a party planner or organised entertain to help so they can enjoy the day. Budget is in many parents minds, as most will choose to hire a suitable venue, such as a hall, the cost of food, entertainment, decorations, birthday cake and party bags.

Speaking from experience the day of a child’s birthday party is a tiring one if you are organising the party yourself! There is a lot of prep to do to ensure that the party is a success. This involves checking on all booking prior to the big day, shopping for food, making or ordering a birthday cake, buying pre filled party bags or sourcing novelties and bags yourself. Make yourself a check-list.

You can organise a child’s birthday party as cheaply or as lavishly as your budget allows. Try to think of a unique party idea that your child or their friends have not attended before. The joy of having an entertainer or organised activity is that the children are occupied leaving you time to attend to the catering arrangements or anything else you may need to do. However do bear in mind, if the children have seen that entertainer in the past they may become bored and interrupt the performance.

You also may also need to plan contingencies in case of bad weather, even for a summer born child. If you have arranged for the party to be held at home in the garden and then see a weather forecast predicting inclement weather if you have a local hall on standby your child’s party can still go ahead. As your child and their peers increase in age many parents will take the opportunity to just drop their child off at the venue, try to get a contact phone number in case you need to reach them before the party ends.

Their are so many different businesses out there that can plan the party of your child’s dreams. Many children enjoy sharing an experience with their friends, such as go-kart driving, in a safe environment, pony rides, science experiments and art work. The choice is endless.

Make the most of the day seeing your happy child is worth all the hard work and expense, it is only once a year after all.
