The English weather is very unpredictable and planning any celebration that may use outside space can be stressful, requiring back up plans and a wind proof gazebo, even during our Summer months. Let's face it, children at a party need space to run off all that excitement and little ones are often accompanied by parents – where do you put them all and how do you keep everything under control?
Birthday parties for children can also be expensive, even if they are held at home. Once you add up all the costs of party bags, entertainment, decorations, party food and a fabulous cake - it can begin to make your eyes water. That's without even adding on the time and stress involved in organising it all.
In trying to plan the perfect celebration for our kids, many of us fret over every detail and over extend ourselves and our budgets, so thebestof Farnham has some stress-free, competitively priced ideas to keep your Prince or Princess entertained on their very special day.
Magical Rooms Party Shop have absolutely everything you need for a fabulous party! From balloons to decorations, pinata's to party bags you really will be spoilt for choice and if they don't have what you want they will order it in especially for you!
Magical Rooms also provide themed children's parties in their newly refurbished party room. Your little ones can choose a Sweet Treats party or how about Wizards or Make a Bear fun? All the materials are included in the price and they are even happy to organise hot or cold food, or you are welcome to bring your own.
Based in central Farnham, Archie's Launchpad is serious fun for younger children. With lots of convenient time slots available to book, seven days a week, party guests are invited to let off steam in the adventure play space station for an hour and then make use of the birthday party suite. And Archie’s really will take care of the whole party experience: Invitations, food, birthday cake, disco or party games, balloons, party bags are included, along with Archie's host to check that every thing runs smoothly so adults can relax and enjoy their children having fun.
It's often difficult to think of something a little bit different to keep older children entertained but Let's Sushi have a creative and engaging birthday experience for 7-12 year olds and teenagers. Let's Sushi will attend your home or venue of your choice and provide a quirky, often brand new experience of making and tasting Sushi! (No raw fish is involved in children's parties unless requested). Let's Sushi parties are a really affordable option too - from just £10.00 per child.
Showshack Dance and Theatre School based in the Bourne Hall, Vicarage Hill, Farnham provide dance and drama parties. No need to worry about the venue and choose between I or 2 hours of entertainment provided by the in-house party host. The children are taught a lively and fun choreographed dance routine and they can even specify their favourite band or artist. Budding actors can create a drama piece from West End favourites and perform it to their parents – so get those cameras at the ready!
Why not skip the goodie bags! We love the generous spirit behind goodie bags but we could all do without random plastic rubbish that gets played with for five seconds. How about sending kids home with something edible? Visit Candy Twist in The Lion and Lamb Yard, Farnham for a wonderland of chocolate novelties and sweets. They can also be the solution to your cake dilemma. Browse the in-store portfolio for inspiration or Candy Twist will be happy to discuss your child's dream cake requirements.
So if your child has a birthday coming up, don't get so stressed about making the day perfect that you can’t even concentrate on watching them have a good time. Hand over the organisation to someone else and let your child's big day be less of a hassle and more of a memorable celebration that everyone can enjoy.
