For the first time aunt or uncle, doing the random babysitting and spoiling the kid nephew and niece can be a piece of cake; all you have to do is play with the kids and take them for an ice cream outing which you can secretly enjoy too. But when it comes to planning a party for a kid it takes special skills and organizing techniques which you will have to bring from the inner party planner hiding inside you. So here are some basic tips to keep in mind when getting the checklist for preparations ready.
First and foremost you need to organize the venue. It is easier if you can have it at the place the kid calls home, but will be a fancy nice surprise if you can hire one of the function rooms Sydney West. Usually they also help you with organizing inside the venue so you do not have to be micro managing their affairs too. They can also suggest a possible party theme that the new kids like too. It will also get rid of the space constraints which will result in some of the kids’ names being cut.

Food and beverages
If you are having a party at the house then food and beverages can be homemade for extra goodness and taste or you can order a catering service to make it easier for post-party clean up. But if you are going for the venue version and hiring out one of the function rooms in Sydney West West then food would be provided by them which would be easier for you.
Get the friend list and potential invitees list from your kid nephew or niece and send out cute and funny invitation cards according to the address. This is great time for you to put your Photoshop skills to use and end up creating a great invitation. Get the help from the birthday guest of honor when making it so you can spend time with them too.
Games and crafts
Something that you need to plan beforehand and of critical importance to make the party a success, is good to get ideas from the birthday boy or girl’s parents for their favorite toys and games. You can hire a clown, balloon animals, tiny motor cars, bouncy castles, crafts tables and get the help from relatives and family members to man the tables on the day.
Go all out in your creative side for planning this surprise party. Grab your family members and relatives to help out with preparations.
