Need help planning for your child’s next birthday party? This checklist may give you some quick steps to follow:

4-6 Weeks Out

  1. We recommend that you start planning at least 4-6 weeks before the event.
  2. Things you need to finalise at this point include: date, time and budget.
  3. Build the initial guest list (include family, friends and classmates). This list may still change but it would be good to have an estimate on the number of people attending.
  4. In case you are not having your kid’s birthday party in your own home, this would also be a good time to select and book the desired venue.
  5. Begin brainstorming ideas including themes and activities.
  6. Looking to hire children party entertainers? At Yabadoo, you can choose from our 7 characters: clown, fairy, magician, pirate, princess, superhero and wizard.
  7. Start planning for the menu. Any special dietary requirements to cater for?
  8. What about the party décor? Are you buying this or making your own? You can also check out our affordable birthday party decorating ideas.
  9. Finally, create your invitations and send them out to your guest list.

2-3 weeks out

  1. Make or buy thank you cards.
  2. Birthday party supplies and décor – make a list of what you need. Identify items you already have.
  3. Need more items for your event? This is the time to purchase or borrow.
  4. The weather in Adelaide can be unpredictable. Be prepared and organise a wet weather plan.
  5. Confirm your bookings for the venue, food and kids’ party entertainment.

1 week out

  1. Do you already have a present for the birthday child? This is a good time to go out and get that special gift.
  2. Start following up with guests who haven’t RSVP’d to get a final headcount.
  3. Organise the stuff needed eg – tables, chairs, serving dishes, etc.
  4. Order the cake and balloons.
  5. Buy the non-perishable food and drinks. Also, store food that can be frozen over the next week.

"I just wanted to thank you so much for the awesome magic party you created for Liams seventh birthday. The boys loved it and I can't believe how much fun you packed into 1.5hrs! It's not an easy task keeping the attention of 12 boys and it was done extremely well. Robbo the magician had the children up on stage as volunteers and Liam absolutely loved helping out! It was a dream come true. All the party ideas and activities went down well and the children were completely engaged. I really didn’t expect that anyone would hold their attention for the whole time, so understandably I was over the moon that I had time and space to talk with the other parents. Thank you again for sending such a great entertainer and I've given your name to a few mums!" Sarah. E
