As you may or may not know, Tabby's Tunes also does parties. Choose from a variety of themes. We can entertain your little ones, face paint, play a variety of games, provide the cups, plates, cutlery, napkins, balloons, tablecloths, a pass-the-parcel and prizes. We also make beautiful handmade filled goodiebags which always go down a treat!
At the moment, the only thing we don't provide is the party food, drinks and the cake. So in case you are new to children's parties and would really welcome a few handy ideas and tips, here are but a few...
1. Keep things simple.
2. Prepare as much as you can in advance.
3. Just have 2 lots of juice, say apple or ribena
4. If you get lids and straws with the paper cups this obviously help avoid spillages but you can also write the children's names on the lids!!
5. Picnic food is perfect for children's parties, such as:
A tip for the jelly and ice-cream:
If you have 10 children coming to the party. Make some jelly and set into 5 little jelly moulds/bowls. When you are ready to serve the jelly and ice-cream, remove half of the jelly from each mould/bowl and put them in the 5 remaining empty moulds/bowls and place the ice-cream on the other half, thus providing each little bowl with half jelly/half ice-cream.
Making the cake...
If you have decided to make a cake, I can't recommend highly enough a book that was given to me when my son's first birthday was looming:
'The Australian Women's Weekly Kid's Birthday Cakes'
You can buy it on Amazon for roughly £5-£10 and I believe you can even buy it on Kindle if you have one.
Oh and don't forget to have some food for the adults, something simple and easy like pizzas are always a good idea.
Lots of love
