Testimonials

“I wanted to express my gratitude for the amazing party package you provided. The kids had an absolute blast, and everything was exceptionally well-planned and executed thanks to your service. We were particularly impressed with the level of organisation in the box/ booklet. Thank you so much for everything.”

Deborah, Hartwell March 2024

“Thanks so much for a fabulous party! The children absolutely loved it and they’ve all been talking about it non-stop at school this week. We thought it was beautifully thought out, with lovely attention to detail. And it was great to be able to pack it away for another family to reuse. Loved the goodie bags - brilliant Wonka bars and masks and none of the usual landfill plastic contents. The sweet shop was fabulous and gave a real wow factor to the party for the children!”

Charli, Eltham March 2024

“The party was fab, thank you. I loved the backdrops and bunting, the games were really well organised and well described so I knew exactly what everything was. It was good value for money and a nice feeling that someone else is going to enjoy it next. Thanks again for the party and great communication.”

Penny, Bromley March 2024

“We have had a Harry Potter party for 15 children for which we have hired decorations from Liz. Communication and organisation was excellent, all questions got answered quickly. The box itself has a lot of decorations and props to make any party magical.”

Veronika, Wealden March 2024

“Opening the box was so exciting, my daughter was desperate to unpack it all in one go and explore everything. The party pack instructions were incredible! The detail was perfect right down to how to pack the box at the end. Also to have the full list of ingredients for the sweets was ideal as we had 3 children with food allergies. I think the pricing was just right, it would have cost me more to provide everything myself plus I would have been left with all the things and nothing to do with them!”

Catherine, Thames March 2024

“I thought the box was fantastic. The instruction booklet was detailed and really helpful. Thanks again for a fantastic concept which delivered the party my daughter was dreaming of!”

Rebecca, Manchester March 2024

“The party was a huge success and the kids were thrilled by the decorations and engaged with the games throughout. The banners and backdrops are so colourful and imaginative, and the variety of games gives lots of options for kids of all ages. HUGE thanks again for making the twin party a massive success, and for making my life a bit easier!”

Kathryn, Cardiff March 2024

“It went great thank you!! The decorations were brilliant and the sweet shop was a huge hit!”

Jess, Tarporley March 2024

“The party was great thank you and definitely kept everyone entertained for 2 hours. Great instructions to make understanding and planning the games easy. Highlights with the children were George’s Marvellous Medicine, Fantastic Mr Fox and The Twits.”

Matthew, Kelsall March 2024

“It was amazing!! Decorations were perfect! Costumes great. Cannot fault any of it. Courier easy. Thank you!!!”

Juliet, Brockley March 2024

“Spelltacular. We entertained a group of 11 7/8 year olds (plus a delighted 4 year old) for a Harry Potter party. The box that arrived was full of magic. Loads of decorations, costumes and a set of themed games that worked for both the die-hard Harry Potter fans and muggles alike. Liz was extremely helpful throughout.”

Deborah, London March 2024

“Perfect in every way! Ideal hassle free party for a group of 8 year olds, kept them entertained! The box comes with everything you need including prizes, the instructions are really detailed. Liz really has thought of everything! I wouldn’t hesitate to use again next year!”

Caroline, Sutton in Ashfield March 2024

“Party was GREAT and the box was a hit. The marvellous medicine in itself was a hit as it was gloopy and gross and changed and bubbled and frothed. You’ve put such love and care into making new games that are perfectly suited to the books. Thanks so much for all your effort and creativity. It was amazing.”

Kristin, Hounslow March 2024

“I have used Packaway Parties twice in the last month and have been blown away by the service. The decor and games are beautifully detailed and both children aged 6 and 8 have loved the activities and parties. The service is fantastic and Liz has been very helpful. I will definitely be using them again in the future.”

Kavita, Virgina Water March 2024

“The children all had a great time, thank you! Package contents were as expected from the website description, and we were very happy with the decorations and games. I would definitely recommend to others!”

Laila, Bristol March 2024

“I think the party is great value for money. Just the hiring of the LEGO is worth it. I think a shorter party plan would be fine, although it was nice to have lots of options to keep the children entertained. Lots of the other mums commented on what a good idea it was.”

Sarah, Fenny Compton February 2024

“All the kids had a great time! The quality and quantity of the contents were much higher than we could have produced/purchased on our own. It took all the stress out of our home party.”

Paul, Salford February 2024

“We ordered the Roald Dahl Packaway Party set. It was fantastic- lots of decorations which helped us turn our home into a Roald Dahl wonderland, and 8 amazing games which my 7 year old and his friends adored! The party was a huge success and we couldn’t have done it by ourselves! Thank you Liz and Packaway Parties!”

Katherine, Overton February 2024

“The box is really complete & well thought of. Overall excellent and super convenient! I loved the fact that you had the cable ties and posting info ready, no printer was needed, everything organised by you, it took a huge load off me! So that was fabulous!”

Barbara, London February 2024

“The party was great - Grace loved it! Your instructions were so helpful! The decorations were fab! Thanks again”

Carly, Bristol February 2024

“The party was brilliant thanks! My son and his friends had the best time!”

Nicola, Stonehaven February 2024

“We loved the party, it went really well thank you! We had lots of compliments that it was a very original party. We were very impressed with the whole package. In particular, we found the instruction manual very clear when planning and the checklist for putting it all away very helpful.”

Alice, Lingfield February 2024

“We all loved the party it was a huge success Thank you very much! The decorations were fab. We ran it very much according to schedule and we were very happy to do that! We played all the games and it was timed perfectly for the 2 hour party. Thanks for the friendly and excellent communication from the start.”

Louise, Newcastle under Lyme February 2024

“The package had many fun games and plenty of sweetie prizes! The kids looked forward to completing their training cards! They all said they had a fantastic time and the obstacle course was hilariously fun!”

Darcy, Yaxley February 2024

“Thanks again for the box - the kids had an amazing time and loved the games. Plus the decorations looked great!”

Laura, Chelmsford February 2024

“We had a Harry Potter Party for 8/9 year olds. My daughter loved the party and all the games included - all being able to dress up (including the adults) made it more special. Liz was brilliant whilst we were booking, quick to answer questions and provided all the information we needed. I would definitely use them again.”

Mary, Portsmouth February 2024

“My daughter loved it, and I got another big thank you cuddle from her this morning so it made her birthday!”

Barry, Dunfermline February 2024

“I booked a Harry Potter party for 16 8 year olds and it worked brilliantly. Afterwards, there are even instructions on packing up and the couriers appeared as if by Knight Bus to take the box away again. I could have come up with a party, and it would probably have been ok - but the box enabled me to have loads of props and equipment I either wouldnt have had, or would have bought at great expense and wasted. This allowed us to have a great time without the waste. The birthday girl declared it the best party ever, which is high praise indeed.”

Sara, Dukinfield February 2024

“I think it’s a great idea and love the sustainability of it.”

Vanessa, Hampstead Norreys February 2024

“The box arrived promptly and the instructions for the games and how to use the items were really comprehensive. The children especially loved the cauldron and the monster book games. The decorations really made the hall look magical. Overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable party for all involved and we would definitely recommend using the packaway party packages to other people.”

Lesley, Chester February 2024

“The party was absolutely magical! It was a great success!! My son was over the moon, and all his friends had the best time!!”

Eszter, Chigwell February 2024

“The party was great thanks to your brilliantly thorough party plan! We were happy with the pricing and courier service and the instructions were very easy. I would recommend – and already have to a few friends!”

Morwenna, Peterborough February 2024

“The feedback I received was: "You did an amazing party like every single detail was so good !!!"”

Christina, Market Rasen February 2024

“I think your concept is brilliant! According to our guests we hosted the party of the year!”

Fiona, Chesham February 2024

“Brilliant concept and service. We chose the Ninjago party for my 5-year old. The pack completely entertained 10 kids for two hours. The decorations were fab and created a great atmosphere. Games were fun, easy to run and accessible. This is a good value alternative to hiring an entertainer or party venue. I recommend the deluxe option which saves lots of time in ordering party plates, party bags etc. A hit for parents and kids all round!”

Lucy, London January 2024

“We recently hosted my child’s birthday party with a Roald Dahl theme, I can’t express how delighted we are with the experience. The games were not only engaging but also incredibly easy to run. The Wonka sweat shop was a huge hit with the kids and it added a unique and enjoyable element to the celebration. What truly stood out was the time-saving convenience - not having to put everything together ourselves made the entire process stress free. Highly recommended”

Riette, London January 2024

“We enjoyed a fantastic Lego themed party for our 6 year old. The resources were brilliant and the plan to execute the activities was incredibly detailed to allow for an incredibly successful and unique party. Great value for money, promoting forward thinking sustainable practice for parties and allowing for a very simple and easy party led by yourself, allowing you to fully enjoy the experience too.”

Gemma, Fareham January 2024

“We were really impressed with the range of decorations and resources for each game. We enjoyed all of the games, particularly the candle and cauldron. I think pricing is perfect and would definitely hire again.”

Shelley, Enfield January 2024

“The party pack we received was fantastic, with so many great little surprises, and lots of decorations to transform our home. The instructions and party plan was easy to use and the games were a real hit with the kids. Liz was fantastic - so helpful and organised. Highly recommend.”

Tom, Surbiton January 2024

“We've had a great time celebrating with your party box. We would definitely have a Packaway Party again! I have recommended your services to a lot of people already.”

Jo, Otley January 2024

“The party was amazing, thank you so much! The children had a great time! The feedback from the children and parents was amazing and would definitely get a box again. I thought the value for money was fab.”

Amy, Bury January 2024

“It went so well, thank you! We've just had feedback from the parents and all of the girls have said it's the best party they've ever been to! It had everything and more that we could ask for to decorate and host a very memorable party. I've already recommended it so others know that it is affordable and worth the lack of stress.”

Stephanie, Abinger Hammer January 2024

“The party was very well received by the kids, they were enchanted and times ran well. The props were great fun and Honeydukes was a huge hit. I thought the price was pretty reasonable, the courier was very easy and it was so lovely to be able to pack away the stuff after.”

Vicky, London January 2024

“My son said, 'It's amazing, Mummy, isn't it, how much fun you can fit into a small boring-looking box!?"”

Johanna, North Fambridge January 2024

“Overall we were really impressed with the package contents and the sheer amount you manage to fit into that crate!! So many decorations which transformed our house! Lots of nice little touches decor wise and we got lots of lovely comments from kids and parents alike. The party plan was concise and easy to follow. I felt the pricing was great as all we needed was food and cake and at £10 per child overall we felt it was a bargain. Super easy to have it couriered and collected as well which was an added bonus!”

Claire, Royston January 2024

“Great Harry Potter themed box with lots of games and decorations. We were really impressed with the box and how easy it was to use and follow. The party plan was foolproof and everything went perfectly on the day. I also thought it was great value for money and I loved the sustainable aspect. We had a very happy 9 year old after the party, and two very tired parents”

Clare, Warrington January 2024

“The party went VERY well. All the youngsters really engaged with the costumes and enjoyed the structured "challenge" format. Your whole guide book was very helpful (including timings), and we appreciated your explanations along the way. We’re very pleased to have found you”

EH, Tewkesbury December 2023

“We had a great time, thanks! We were really impressed with the package contents, it was great to have so many decorations to put up and it really made the party room feel special. I would definitely hire again and have already recommended to others.”

Ruth, Edinburgh December 2023

Michelle, Leeds November 2023

“We hired the Harry Potter party package from Packaway Parties for our daughter's birthday. The party was amazing - unlike anything else that we'd been to before. Our daughter and all of her friends loved it, especially how interactive it was. Even the kids who started off a bit reluctant were soon won over and couldn't wait to fill their wizard skills cards with stars and graduate from wizard training! Thanks, Liz - we'll surely be back in future!”

Jayne, Chester November 2023

“The party went really well, thanks! I was quite anxious about running a party without an entertainer, but the package was great!

Elinor, Wallington November 2023

“Our son had a truly magical Harry Potter party thanks to Packaway Parties. The box was packed with so many beautiful decorations, fun and well thought out party games which were true to the theme and a detailed party plan to help us set everything up and lead the party with confidence. I cannot recommend them enough."

Gemma, Tadley November 2023

“We thought that the contents of the package were brilliant, extensive selection of decorations etc. We didn't use them all. The games were brilliant - really well thought through and engaging. I also thought your instruction booklet was AMAZING! So clear and easy to follow, and you'd thought of everything. Thanks so much - we had loads of fun! It's a brilliant business idea.”

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?

We are constantly developing new kid’s birthday party ideas and packages so please contact us with any requests. You never know, we could have it ready by the time your child’s birthday comes round.

Booking Enquiries

To book or make an enquiry please complete this simple form. Let us know your birthday child’s age, your chosen theme, approximate number of guests and your preferred date. We’ll then be in touch as soon as possible!
