Both of my childrren have birthdays coming up, so I've been researching brilliant party ideas for children. It seems that, in the world of children's parties, the world is your oyster. There are so many fab things out there for every budget, here are a few of my favourites:
Sharky & George
This brilliant company create the most jaw dropping parties I have ever seen. From Mini Olympics to Movie Making, they have endless enthusiasm and make sure every child has a wonderful time. If hiring a company to host a party is beyond your budget, they have just released a book called Don't You Dare, packed full of games and ideas to keep kids amused.
After our wonderful visit to the Biscuiteers Boutique a few weeks ago, I am very tempted to book a biscuit decoarting party for Fifi. Every child gets to ice tin of 9 biscuits, kitted up in their own apron, with lashings of extra biscuits to nibble on. Yum! For a cheaper alternative, why not buy an icing kit from Biscuiteers, and host your own party? A little messier perhaps, but just as tasty!
Margo and Julia's
A newish cafe in Parsons Green, Margo and Julia's host wonderful birthday parties for kids. With a delicious range of home cooked food, a playroom and a ball pit, kids can run wild while parents enjoy coffee and cake.
Finally, if that seems like too much work, why not host a tea party at home, and order in some nutritious and delicious food boxes from my favourite childrens caterer, Porgies. From £6.50 per box, they take the stress out of entertaining. They can even stock your fridge up with an evening meal, so when you finally get your little ones off to bed, you can sit down to an easy meal.
