7 things not to forget for your children’s fancy dress party

These are some of the things you should think about when getting your invitations ready. As for the number of people you invite or the design, we’ll leave that up to you, but don’t forget to mention that it is a fancy dress party and what the theme this, if there is one.
  • Games or activities: it’s not enough just to throw a party, the essential thing that the children have fun and are entertained. To make sure of this we suggest you organise a range of different of activities, depending on the kid's ages and the space you have available. You can organize anything from quizzes to mime, where they have to imitate a character and the others have to guess who it is, or other activities such as face painting, dancing or obstacle races.
  • Food: just like for any children’s’ party you hold, the food is really important. Of course, for children it’s best not to over-complicated things and simply go for sandwiches, muffins and cake to eat and juices and smoothies to drink. Of course, bear in mind if any of the children have food allergies before choosing the party food.
  • Fancy dress: However obvious it may seem, when you hold a fancy dress party, there may always be someone who didn’t realise and has brought their child without a costume. But there’s no need to panic!  As good organizer, you should have some hats, bow ties, wigs and necklaces just in case. Having children, you it won’t be difficult to find some of these items around the house. If you’re not sure what costume to choose for your children, in this blog and we already gave you some great ideas for Carnival costumes to give you some inspiration.
  • Decor: like costumes, decorations are fundamental. You can choose to make them yourself or buy them, depending on the time you have and how imaginative you are feeling at the time of organizing the party. The most important thing is that there is lots and lots of colour.
  • Competitions: No costume party is worth its salt that does not have a competition. Of course, we must bear in mind that children are involved, so is it not a good idea to promote over-competitiveness. Therefore, we propose giving different types of prizes for the most original, funniest, most elegant or most colourful fancy dress. The most important thing is that all children get a prize.
  • Space: the place where you hold your party is also important and you have to have enough room so that all the children can play without falling over each other and space for the food and decorations. If you don’t have a large enough room, you can always rent a hall. There are more and more places designed to hold children's parties, which you can hire relatively cheaply.

The advantages of organizing your own fancy dress party

A fancy dress party is probably one of the most successful types of children’s party, because there is so much room for variety. For this reason alone it’s worth holding one. And this sort of party has many more advantages. Shall we tell you what they are?

First, it’s a great opportunity for children to get together outside of school. It will help them get to know each other better and learn to interact in a different environment than the one they are accustomed to.

Furthermore, it is a unique opportunity to get more use out of fancy dress costumes. Your kids probably have a lot of costumes that they have only used once, so throwing your own party is a good way to use them again. And finally, children love them! Do you need any more reasons?
