Offer a tailored service

Instead of offering standard children’s parties, offer parents a more customized, individual party service. Do some research into what your competitor offers, and think about how you can offer a better service.

Start off by thinking about what you enjoy doing and what areas you have previous experience with, and then, go from there. For example, if you are a talented cook, you could offer children’s cooking parties. Or, if you are an art lover, perhaps you could offer arts and crafts parties. You will enjoy running your business more if it is based on something that you enjoy doing.

You must be reliable

In order to run a successful business, you need to ensure that you are reliable. If you take a booking and fail to turn up, you are ruining a child’s birthday party and will end up getting a bad name for yourself. To work in the kids party business, it is crucial that you are reliable.

You need to be happy to work weekends

It is also important to consider whether you are happy to do the majority or your work on weekends, as most children’s birthday parties take place on Saturdays or Sundays.

Does the idea of spending most of the weekend away from your kids bother you? If it does, this may not be the right job for you.

Don’t undercharge

Take a look at your competitors prices before setting up your own. While you may think that your competitors charges are too high, don’t immediately presume that they are ripping people off.

When you take into account the travel costs, equipment you will need, food and drink, paper coffee cups and paper plates, and insurance, the cost doesn’t sound as steep.  

In order to run a successful business, you need to be making a profit, so it is important that you don’t put your prices too low.

You will need insurance

Whether you are cooking with kids or offering face painting, the potential for accidents when kids are around is high. That’s why it is so important that you have adequate insurance in place, to cover any mishaps that might occur.

If you love children, are happy to work weekends and feel that you can throw a good party, then planning children’s birthday parties is an ideal business venture for you.
