Kelly, Southampton October 2023

“The party was a huge hit with my daughter and all her friends. She said it was the 'best party ever!' Her friends parents messaged me afterwards and all said how much their children had enjoyed it and not stopped talking about it. The instructions were really clear and the box itself was so easy to use and with everything in individual labelled bags it couldn't have been simpler. We would 100% use Packaway Parties again and will definitely be recommending you to everyone.”

Laura, Colchester October 2023

“I am so pleased that I found Packaway Parties. I really like that the party box brought some structure to the party, it allowed children the opportunity to partake in group activities; creating a sociable environment and provided a framework for creative and imaginative play, which often gets lost in the noise and chaos of parties. I would absolutely hire from you again!”

Emily, Caxton October 2023

“I was so impressed with the amount of decorations included, enough for a decent sized hall! The games were fab, the Lego hands relay was a particular hit.

We opted for the deluxe package as we were super busy in the run up to the party and the party bags were great as were the paper plates etc. Thanks Liz for making our party so easy!”

I’ll defo be using again and recommending to all my friends.”

Carly, Caddington October 2023

“The package was great, it was so useful not having to think too much about what we needed to do (I know nothing about Pokemon!).

Several guests told me my decorations were above and beyond anything they expected, and that it was one of the best house parties that they'd ever been to. I can attribute a lot of that praise to the range of decorations and props you provided us with - they were a lot of fun.”

Rochelle, London October 2023

“The Packaway set was amazing, and made everything so simple. As a busy teacher, it meant I wasn't having to buy props and think up games after work so it was super helpful.

Emma, Darwen September 2023

Naomi, Lostwithiel September 2023

“The party was absolutely brilliant, my daughter has just going to bed saying it was a 10/10. The decorations and costumes were amazing. I think the pricing was brilliant for what was provided - the decorations alone would have cost a fortune and everyone commented how good it looked. I would definitely hire a Packaway Party again and have already recommended it to a few people. The courier service is amazing and so easy.”

Hannah, Leighton Buzzard September 2023

“Very impressed with Packaway Parties, extremely well organised with great pride and detail given to make as easy as possible. Return of goods is also made very simple. Will definitely use again. Great value for money and highly recommend.”

Donna, Maidstone September 2023

“It was brilliant! Lots to do and lots of good decorations. The kids had a great time and we hardly had any waste at the end, which were our aims. We would definitely recommend (and have already) and would consider hiring again in the future.”

Matthew, Wotton-under-Edge September 2023

“The look on my twins faces as they came into the venue was worth every penny. Also just to note that when I cleared up after the party the waste generated was about half a bread bag full. Everything else was recycled or composted”

Libby, Bristol September 2023

“Plenty of themes to choose from and good value for money. Lots of options to tailor the party pack to your needs. Good communication from them and helpful with any queries. Lots of thought into games and decorations. "Best party ever!"

James, Kirk Hammerton August 2023

“I definitely recommend Packaway Parties if you want to give a special touch to your birthday party. We had a Harry Potter theme party and we hired all the decorations and costumes. Both kids and parents loved them. Liz is very well organised and the communication around delivery and everything else is perfect. She was also flexible to tailor the party package around my needs. Will definitely use it again.”

Magda, Tunbridge Wells August 2023

"My daughter had a wonderful Harry Potter party for her 8th birthday. All the games and ideas were fantastic and perfect for their age - they loved magic candles, The Book of Monsters and Dobby's Sock Game! All the girls truly believed in the magic of it all! Decorations looked great and were much better than what we could have put together or purchased ourselves. It was a very easy process and I have already recommended to other parents!”

Jenna, St.Albans August 2023

“The party was fantastic, all the kids loved it. We ran according to the plan but we did run over times because the kids wanted to play the games for longer. I would recommend to others and we would book again. Thanks for a fantastic party.”

Bryony, Pontefract August 2023

“This is the second time I’ve used Packaway Parties. It’s an amazing idea - everything you need without the waste or hassle typically associated with organising kids’ parties - and the logistics of receiving and returning the box couldn’t be easier. Big thank you to Liz for the great service!”

Ellen, Sevenoaks August 2023

“Very well thought out and organised! The kids absolutely loved it!”

Tara, Preston August 2023

“The concept is an amazing one and seems to work very well - I wish I’d thought of it myself!”

Sam, Ipswich July 2023

“We chose the Ninjago Party and my son and his friends had the best time. They were all Ninja's for the day and received a certificate at the end to show they had completed their training. The package had everything we needed and more, you only really need to supply the food and cake!. It was all so organised and we had great feedback from the parents. Be prepared to get familiar with the games beforehand, there is some effort involved to ensure smooth running of the party. I never thought I would end up being a party entertainer but it was easy and fun and great value for money. I would 100% recommend Packaway Party to anyone.”

Lauren, Crowthorne July 2023

“The party was fantastic - and we were amazed how much came in the crate. Our 4yr old son had a wonderful time, as did all the other children from 9yrs down to a 1yr old. The hop-a-long dinosaurs were a particular favourite, as was baby Arthur, he is adorable! The children insisted he was given some play food for lunch as well. We’ve recommended Packaway to other parents and would definitely order another party pack in the future.”

Sarah, Northwood July 2023

“The party went really well. The games suggested were excellent and really helped us on the day. The most popular games were the Pokémon hunt - they absolutely loved the questions, the stealth game and the obstacle course. The organisation of the pack was excellent and it was so easy to follow your guide.”

Eileen, Potters Bar July 2023

“The contents were great, more than we expected. It would have costs hundreds more to purchase all these items. All I bought additionally was food & drink. Had quality items and made for a stylish party. Lots of compliments from the parents who attended. I love all the details, even the stickers with the kids wizard names on them, the star cards, the certificate. A great party and saved hundreds on hiring an entertainer.”

Eva, Shortland July 2023

“Party went really well thank you. The kit and party plan were fab! Thank you very much for creating a brilliant party!”

Rachael, Burton on Trent July 2023

“Thank you so much for an absolutely fantastic party. The whole kit was amazing and we had a great time. I would absolutely hire again, and have been singing your praises to all the parents who were all very impressed.”

Felicia, Garrowby July 2023

“Well, in a word, it was magical - and most importantly, the birthday girl and her guests loved it! I love the eco and sustainability ethos of the whole thing, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your company.”

Jess, Woodstock July 2023

“We used Packaway Parties for our daughters 6th birthday party. The Harry Potter theme is fantastic. Such a sustainable way to create a dramatic effect. The decorations are great, even in a large space. Adding on the tableware and party bags made it hassle free. Just be prepared to need to be the entertainer. I managed but was a bit nervous to try and keep 20 children’s attention but the games provided did that. I’ve had amazing comments from the other parents, all the children had an amazing time. Thank you to Liz for being so helpful and it running so smoothly.”

Claire, Hatfield July 2023

“My overall impression of the package contents was that the quality of the items were great, and there was a good amount of items too. I was really impressed with how all the contents were organised and the information in the binder was really helpful. I would definitely recommend this package to others, and I would book a Packaway Party again.”

Nikki, Guildford July 2023

“We were so impressed with the service and the imagination and thought that had gone into the party package. The decorations were great and plentiful and really made an impression on entrance. It was great to have a number of games to pick from.The kids loved the Twits and wanted to play it several times. George’s Marvellous Medicine was also a big hit and kept them busy for quite some time, and the Choc Factory Game also. Would definitely recommend you to others!”

Ben & Lucy, Seaford July 2023

“The kids really enjoyed the party. The kids loved the fossil bone game and relay race and I was happy with the pricing. The sweet shop went down a treat and everyone loved the party bags. I would definitely use again.”

Tamara, London July 2023

“The party went really well, thank you very much! The children all had a great time and enjoyed the games. The obstacle course and musical games were probably the biggest hits. I thought the pricing was about right - it was clear you had provided a lot and put a lot of work and effort into it all! I was impressed with the organisation of the folder! I have been spreading the word. I think it's a great way of running a proper traditional party but made easier!”

Emily, Birch July 2023

“The contents were great, very thorough and pretty much everything you could need. I would definitely recommend and would use again”

Kelly, Southampton July 2023

“This is such a great idea for a children’s birthday party and much more sustainable. My daughter and her friends had such a magical time at her Harry Potter party and the feedback from their parents was so positive. The children loved the cauldron with real mist and I would definitely recommend the Honeydukes sweet shop add on. It was so nice to have a more traditional birthday party in the garden with such a creative twist. It far exceeds something like a soft play party and feels so much more personal. I would absolutely have a Packaway party again!”

Emma, Wokingham July 2023

“Thank you ever so much for our wonderful party package we were so impressed with all the amazing entertainment packed into such a medium sized container. So absolutely worth every penny. The children and parents thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of it. The most popular was fossil forest - Number one hit!! Many many thanks for making my son's dream come true as dinosaurs is what he loves most of all.”

Roshelle, London July 2023

“We had a lovely afternoon thanks, the decorations and outfits were great. Love the fact it feels like a greener way to create the party atmosphere rather than buying lots of single use plastic.”

Jenny, South Croydon July 2023

“The party went well and the kids all enjoyed it. Everything in the box was great and having everything packaged in individual bags was super helpful! I ran the party as per your guide (the detailed folder was fab!) The favourites seemed to be the parachute and the pokeball hunt! I don’t think there were any that they didn’t enjoy. I would and have recommended packaway parties to others”

Zoe, Hilperton July 2023

“The party was really good, our daugther and her friends have had a great time, so thank you! We would definitely recommend it and hire again”

Armelle, Birmingham July 2023

“The kids had a brilliant time at the party. I was very happy with the package contents - everything had been thought about and the only thing I needed to provide was the cake and party food. The instructions were really clear and easy to follow and the way that the games were sorted in to individual bags was really helpful. I was particularly impressed with the decorations as there were loads! The kids LOVED the butterfly dressing up and flowery headbands and spent quite a lot of time fluttering about which was really cute. My daughter had a brilliant birthday and all the parents think that I am some sort of party guru, so it's been a big success”

Rebecca, Preston July 2023

“We had an amazing Pokémon party! All the children had so much fun. Thank you so much. The box contained absolutely everything we needed, the decorations were amazing and the resources were perfect. The instructions for the games were really clear and there’s a great mix of different activities. We loved the sweet shop at the end too. Thank you Packaway Parties, we will definitely be using one of your boxes again!”

Rachel, Farnham June 2023

“The party went brilliantly!! Thank you so much for all the effort you have put in to creating the party packages. The kids had an absolute blast and two hours flew by. Having the detailed plan and the cheat sheet was really helpful and the timings were surprisingly accurate! The decorations looked fab and really added to the atmosphere. We thought it was good value for money as it was great to know that everything was ready prepared for us. We’ll be back next year!”

Hannah, Sheffield June 2023

“The party was a real success! Afterwards, my daughter said that she was really glad she had a Roald Dahl party and that she wishes it hadn't ended. The children all enjoyed themselves, and feedback from adults is that they had fun.”

Annabel, Taunton June 2023

“The party went really well thank you, the kids had a fabulous time! I was happy with the box when it arrived. It was very helpful that the various games were in separate bags. I was happy with the pricing and would recommend. We were originally just going to do our own thing with party games before finding this but I’m so glad we did!”

Gemma, Newton le Willows June 2023

“Amazing. there are so many things to beautify the room and to make the party unforgettable!”

Melania, Wembley June 2023

“What a fantastic idea! Liz helped me create a brilliant Willy Wonka themed party for my son’s 5th birthday! We had the party in a generic church hall but it was transformed with the wonderful decorations! The kids loved the party bags with the chocolate bar concealing a golden ticket - Packaway Parties made it a really special themed event and Liz was also quick to respond and received & sending back all the party prep was hassle free and easy! Would definitely recommend!”

Luciana, London June 2023

“Liz was lovely to liaise with, so helpful and organised. The party box was great, with loads of props and decorations. The games were fantastic too and took lots of the stress away from party planning!”

Hannah, Cambridge June 2023

“The packages, content and guidance notes were really well organised, very easy to follow and great suggestions in terms of order of activities. Decorations were amazing and really impressed kids and grown ups. Overall very happy with everything and we think it is very good value for money. We used Packaway before (twice) during lockdown so this was our 3rd time!”

Sara, Solihull June 2023

“My daughter and friends absolutely loved her Harry Potter party! All the activities and props were awesome, and kept the kids entertained the whole time. The instructions were very easy to follow and made us look like total pros. I 100% recommend Packaway Parties!”

Adriana, Bicester June 2023

“This was a unique and special party that we’ll remember for years to come! I couldn’t believe that all the things we got to hire and keep all fitted into a single box! It was all so well organised and thought through. The level of detail was impressive! The party did require prepping, but the 2-days given for that was more than sufficient. My son enjoyed his Harry Potter party so much, and I’m hearing his friends did too. It was a great way to get to know his friends and have fun. Elements of it was quite magic! Would definitely recommend Packaway Parties.”

Siwan, Bangor June 2023

“The party went really well and the birthday girl and all her guests loved all the decorations/ games! I also just wanted to say I thought the service was fantastic in terms of everything being delivered/ collected.”

Michelle, Bristol June 2023

“The party went great and was a huge hit! The girls loved it.”

Rebecca, Aylesbury June 2023

“I thought the Harry Potter party kit was absolutely fantastic! They all absolutely loved it and kept saying it was the best party ever! Overall I thought it was fantastic.

Huge thanks once again.”

Kirstie, Dunmow June 2023

“The party went really well. On reviewing the party contents my excitement and imagination kicked in!! Once set up the desired atmosphere was created! All the games went well, overall time of party plan worked really well and it managed to keep them entertained the whole time. I’m very happy with the pricing and felt it was very reasonable for the amount, quality and effort that went into the box.”

Sarah, Ash June 2023

“Thank you sooooo much for all your help. My daughter is already talking about her next birthday party!!”

Natasha, Hungerford June 2023

“Well we had a fantastic party! Thank you so much. The Packaway Party supplies were everything we needed for a fantastic Lego themed party and all of the children had a blast. They loved the very professional looking builders jackets and there was plenty of Lego to go around.”

Nicola, Langdon Hills June 2023

“The party was great. The box and everything you include was fantastic! The decorations were lovely and really helped make the room bright and inviting. We would definitely recommend you to anyone having a party! Price was good and delivery and collection so easy too. Absolutely delighted we found you.”

Anna, Burscough June 2023

Kerry, Fareham June 2023

“I would just like to say the party was a huge success. My son had the best time and said it was his best party ever. His friends loved it too. The other parents couldn't stop saying how amazing the whole thing was! I was blown away with what was in the box. There was plenty of choice in terms of decorations (so much that we didn't use it all!) The detail in the book you provided was amazing. I really enjoyed not having to think in terms of party games. I thought the pricing was spot on. Affordable and took all the stress from myself in planning.”

Amanda, Shirebrook June 2023

“We had a lovely party! We mixed and matched the games- with the energy levels high the puzzle game and ninja stealth worked well. Found all the chest to be great quality and in good condition.”

Harriet, Totnes May 2023

“A brilliant find and so glad I chose to use Packaway Parties for my son’s birthday. We hired the Lego party and all the children had lots of fun. The organisation was very easy given that Liz had written out comprehensive instructions and everything was clearly labelled. Delivery and collection of the party box was really easy. There was a good range of games, we substituted in our own pass the parcel game for one. Tons of decorations and excellent props to use, it saved me so much time it was well worth it and justified the cost. Excellent communication from Liz too when enquiring. Thank you!”

Laura, Cambridge May 2023

“The kids had a brilliant time at the party. Everything had been thought about and the only thing I needed to provide was the cake and party food. The instructions were really clear and easy to follow. The way that the games were sorted into individual bags was really helpful. I was particularly impressed with the decorations as there were loads! The kids LOVED the butterfly dressing up and flowery headbands and spent quite a lot of time fluttering about which was really cute. The children absolutely loved the parachute Bruno game - that was the highlight for pretty much all of them and they thought it was hilarious. I think that it was excellent value for money for what was included. My daughter had a brilliant birthday and all the parents think that I am some sort of party guru, so it's been a big success here!”

Becky, Preston May 2023

“The party was a great success. My son and his friends had the best time. It was a great success, the children raved to their parents who in turn congratulated me on giving them the best time.... So thank you Liz for helping put this together.”

Evette, Sydenham May 2023

“The party was great thank you, we had a great time. The race car game went down really well and the puzzle hunt too. My son absolutely loved living his dream of having his own sweetshop, with all his friends for customers! Thanks again for the wonderful party kit, will certainly recommend.”

Lisa, Penarth May 2023

“The kids LOVED it! So creatively planned and every little attention to detail was excellent. My son was so excited to decorate and could hardly contain himself. The sweet store was brilliant. They loved the parachute and obstacle course games and the party bags were excellent. Perfect for a fun filled, relaxed, stress free event- very reasonably priced for all the amazing stuff you get and all flawless with delivery, couriers etc- what a wonderful business and I would thoroughly recommend”

Ailsa, Bath May 2023

“I just wanted to say what a brilliant time all the kids had at the party yesterday. It was all so well planned and so well thought out. My son that it was the best party ever (as did his friends - feedback from their mums!) All the games were thoroughly well enjoyed. We followed your plan. I think they all worked very well and the props for all the games were perfect. We were very impressed with everything that was delivered - the quantity and quality and the attention to detail. I thought the price was very reasonable and I’ve already started recommending you to our friends.”

Geeta,Hauxton May 2023

“We had a FANTASTIC time at the Lego party yesterday thank you. We have had so many amazing comments about how much everyone enjoyed it and how much fun the kids had so that was great!”

Holly, Great Cambourne May 2023

“I found the service you provided really efficient. Everything that came in the box was as expected. Communication with yourself was really easy as well. The pack explaining the contents and games was really helpful. It was great to not be throwing out lots of decorations as well. The party bags were great and had a nice combination of activities in them.”

Aline, Glasgow May 2023

“My son and his friends loved the Pokemon party. It was very easy to run and the games were simple. It was all packed so well and easy to pack away. I'd highly recommend this to anyone looking for an easy party to have at home. Glowing reviews from all the kids!”

Eleanor, London May 2023

“Very glad I found Packaway Parties... saved me loads of time and brainpower with a really comprehensive and fun package. So comprehensive I couldn't fit all the activities in. Liz was very pleasant and great at keeping in touch too. Thanks!”

Andrew, Bath May 2023

“The party was absolutely fabulous and the children all had so much fun! We couldn't have done it without the party pack. The pack was way more than I expected and we were very excited to get everything set up. We found the party plan extremely helpful as it explained everything so well, and I would say it was definitely worth the money we paid. All of the signs and banners were great and really got the children's imagination going. I would absolutely recommend Packaway Parties.”

Kayleigh, Swindon May 2023

“The party was amazing and the children loved it. The package contents were very good, nicely and professionally prepared. The whole package and party plan was well done and helped a lot to organise the party.”

Sylvia,Twickenham May 2023

“The party was great - a blur of chaos with your party box saving the day with distractions and structure. The speed, care and variety of activities was fantastic. The children LOVED having wands and the charms activity with the candles blew their mind. I thought the pricing was excellent and the instruction booklet super clear and helpful.”

Miranda, Salisbury May 2023

“Thank you so much. The party was great fun! The kids had a great time and loved all the games. I had lots of great feedback from the parents. Overall, it was a huge success and I've already been recommending Packaway Parties to friends.”

Marie, Ash Vale April 2023

“The party went amazing! The kids all really enjoyed it, got really stuck in with the games and the house felt like Hogwarts – it’s a real shame to have to give it all back! The package was excellent - well packaged and everything was there. Best bit for me were the instructions, very clear on set up / running the day / packing away, couldn't have asked for it to be any clearer.”

Richard, Belper April 2023

“Thank you so much - I have been recommending your parties to everyone, it's such a brilliant idea”

Rebecca, Shrewsbury April 2023

“Thank you so much - it went so well!! Really easy to follow and absolute life saver having it all organised and ready like that. It was fantastic how many decorations etc were provided! The children enjoyed all the games - think the different games suited different children so there was something for everyone. I particularly liked the relay with the hands! I would hire again and defo recommend!”

Georgina,Leeds April 2023

“The children really loved the party. My daughter said at bedtime she wished it was the start of the day so she could do it all over again!”

Elizabeth, Headington April 2023

“Thanks so much again for the excellent service and products, memories made for a lifetime”

Michelle, Buckhurst Hill April 2023

“The party was great thanks - your service is excellent and I would definitely recommend”

Ryan, Accrington April 2023

“I am so glad we used Packaway Parties!!! Our daughter requested a Harry Potter party and I had no idea where to start, luckily came across Packaway Parties and loved the idea!! The decorations were fabulous, games were fun and the costumes provided just finished it all off! I love that the items get reused, as usual would spend so much on decorations only to throw them away, which is so wasteful- I love this whole idea and have already recommended to friends. They made everything so easy and were really helpful and friendly when arranging everything, thank you Packaway Parties for making my daughter’s birthday just magical!”

Lisa, Bury April 2023

“The party went very well. The sweet shop was a big hit, and saved me the effort of making party bags. The box gave me relief from the anxiety of party planning, it had everything we needed and you could open it in an empty space and not have to buy anything extra. The decorations were great and I love that I can send them back to you as who knows what my son will be into next year!”

Bryony, Grove April 2023

“We were blown away by the organisation and quality of detail with the Packaway kit. You really have produced a unique offering that is top class and enables a much more fun party than a regular entertainer would provide. The large backdrop decorations were really great and helped transform the room. Pricing was spot on and we would definitely use you again and recommend you.”

FAQs

What will I receive in my party hire package ?

The contents differ for each theme but all party hire packages contain a party plan, music, decorations, children’s costumes (and sometimes adult costumes), party games, props, prizes and a certificate for each child. Please see the page for your preferred theme for more details or call 07739 722 482 to discuss further.

What is the Deluxe Package?

In addition to the party hire package the Deluxe Package can be added on to give you a complete party service. This includes filled party bags, personalised invitations with envelopes and tableware – all in your chosen party theme.

I am not an entertainer - how will I cope?

After many years experience it has become clear to me that you don’t need to be a children’s entertainer to keep children happy at a party. There are a few key ingredients which make a party go well and all you need to do is have these to hand (in your package) and to be able to occasionally restore order and get their attention. Once you’ve tried it, you won’t look back!

What if I'm too busy to rehearse and follow a party plan ?

The party plan is just there as a guideline. It will tell you a recommended order for the games based on following fast-paced games with slower ones and playing games requiring some concentration near the start (ie. before the cake!). It will also give you an idea of how long each activity will last but really the idea of the packages are to give you flexibility to tailor the party to your group. If they’re loving the bubbles, then let them run wild while you put your feet up…..

Can you tailor the packages?

We accept it’s not a case of ‘one size fits all’ so will take into consideration the number and ages of the children plus the gender mix when putting together your party plan. The packages are ideally suited for running a party for 12 children in your own home but everything can be scaled up for larger parties and venues.

What if I break something?

We accept that things will sometimes get damaged. We want the children to have fun and use the items provided, so some wear and tear is to be expected. However, you need to be responsible for the appropriate use of all items and monitor the children at all times to avoid unnecessary breakages. If something is lost or broken please let us know when returning the package – this will save time when carrying out the inventory check. Money may be deducted from the safety deposit at the discretion of Packaway Parties.

How does the package get to me?

The package will be delivered to you by courier at least one day before the party date and should be returned the next working day after your party. This service is included in the cost of your package.

When do I need to pay?

A £25 deposit is required at the time of booking to secure the date and full payment is required a week before the hire date PLUS a £75 safety deposit which will be refunded after the hire package has been returned.

The theme my child wants isn't listed here?
