Ultimate Kids Party Checklist


Organising your kid's party can be a little stressful! For something so enjoyable, making sure everything is perfect is tough. But it doesn’t have to be so hard. With our handy checklist, you can host the best kids birthday party of the year! So start ticking off those checkboxes right now: 

Pre-party organisation

Start preparing at least one month before the party.

  • Theme – figure out a theme with your child to help streamline the planning process.
  • Budget – define how much you can spend and stick to it!
  • Invitations – find something that suits your theme and organise the date, time and location, as well as who should be invited. Find cute invitations to send to guests.
  • Stickers and thank you cards – match with the invitations to bring it altogether.
  • The cake – now is the time to decide if you want to bake or buy and what kind of cake you want. A cake stand and cake servers are also helpful at this point. 

Party Decorations

Base these on your theme. Try to get enough to fill the space without looking crowded and chaotic! Always keep in mind your budget and the clean up afterwards.

  • Balloons and helium tank hire if needed
  • Ribbon
  • Table centrepiece(s) and confetti
  • Birthday banner
  • Candles for decorations and the cake
  • Craft supplies
  • Specialty kids party decorations to match party theme
  • Table covers
  • Party hats and/or costumes
  • Lolly/party bags
  • Games, such as a piñata, stick the tail on the donkey or an egg relay


Party Tableware

A big part of any celebration is the food! Getting serving supplies together is crucial to a successful party and should be done as early as possible before the day.

  • Tins for cakes, cupcakes or muffins
  • Napkins
  • Serving bowls, platters and trays
  • Ice bucket and ice scoop
  • Kid-friendly glasses (real or plastic)
  • Paper or plastic plates
  • Cutlery
  • Skewers
  • Straws
  • Pitchers



Just in case there’s something you think should be on the list that we missed!
