10 tips from Bristol’s best Party Entertainer: Part Two
Here are five more helpful tips garnered from my experience as one of Bristol’s best professional children’s entertainers:
Don’t go overboard on the party food. I recommend a nice balance between fun party food and healthy food and a sensible amount to avoid food waste and keep costs in check. I appreciate this can be tricky to judge! Having a few healthy snacks always goes down well with the parents too.
If you’re going to book a children’s entertainer, always watch their promo video first. It will give you the clearest indication of what you are booking. You can watch their video with your child to make sure you’re on the same page. If an entertainer doesn’t have a video, make sure you talk to them on the phone and get them to talk about what they do in their show.
Your Bluetooth speaker might not cut the mustard. Your speaker sounds super loud in your kitchen but put it into a large kids’ party venue and it’s a different story. If you’re planning for music to be an important part of your party then the wattage of your system is really important. A good entertainer should have a loud, good quality sound system.
If you have the space and time, a colouring table at your party makes a great side activity. Some children would much prefer some calm colouring time at a kid’s birthday party as opposed to running around.
The more space the better. While it’s possible – and it may cut costs – to have the party at your home, consider that it could also be rather hectic. Having your child’s birthday party at home is a better option in summer if you can utilise some garden space. However, my favourite parties as a kids’ entertainer are always in a local hall. This can be a church hall, community centre, or any other large indoor space.
Hopefully these tips will help to make your child’s birthday or family event run smoothly and enjoyably.
