Just a few tips Pinka recommends
1. Try to book your venue and entertainer well in advance as both can get very
2. Send out party invitations well ahead to ensure a good turn out and remember
to write whether there is a theme or not so parents know to dress their children
3. Find out if any conflicting parties are happening on the same day as yours.
If so, sharing a party is always a good option.
4. If you choose to display some balloons at your party, tying them to their chairs,
doors, or hanging them in a large bunch out of the children's reach is best. This
is so the balloons don't become a distraction by children trying to catch the strings
or pulling them around the room. I’m afraid scattered balloons on the floor will
interrupt the party and are a hazard.
5. If at home, try and move as much furniture aside in the party room as possible.
Pinka doesn't need a huge room but enough for all the children to run around and
play party games happily. It will also prevent anything breaking!
6. Remove all toys, play or climbing equipment etc from the party area. This helps
the children and the entertainer have a much more enjoyable party with no distractions.
7. If food and entertaining is happening in one room, Pinka is best on the opposite
side from food and main entrance to the room and preferably near a plug socket (she
always brings an extension lead)
8. Ensure if you are entertaining parents with some nibbles and drink (lovely idea!),
the volume of your chatter doesn't distract the children too much from having fun
and hearing Pinka! Plan for them to be either on opposite end of room or another
9. Don't feel you have to go to huge expense on food or party bags.
10. Most importantly have fun and don't forget your camera!
