“We hired the superhero packaway party and my son absolutely LOVED it. There were so many decorations to really set the scene and Super Ted was a great host! The adult costumes definitely helped too! There were so many fun games to choose from and each superhero loved gaining their new skills at superhero academy! The sweet shop was an absolute hit too and worth it, saved lots on plastic rubbish for party bags and the kids preferred it - would recommend it”
“The party went really well and the children were absolutely enthralled with all the games and activities. It was brilliant. My daughter said it was her best party ever and she’d like it exactly the same next year!”
“The Peppa Pig party went really well thank you! They enjoyed visiting the sweet shop and playing with the musical instruments and dressing up. It was perfect for the ages we had and they had a great time.”
“The Dino party was fantastic!! My son loved it so much, he had a total blast and I really enjoyed hosting it! The folder was just brilliant, so organised and well thought out. I have recommended you to everyone I know!”
“It was brilliant. Thank you so much. It’s such a fab idea and so eco friendly! All the girls had a great time. Lots of fun and giggles. My husband and I loved dressing up and being part of it and the party plan really made it run easily!”
“We had a wonderful time at the party thank you. The children thoroughly enjoyed all the activities. Your folder was amazing and very thorough. The decorations were brilliant, it all really looked like Hogwarts. We've had some lovely feedback from parents saying their children had said it was the best party ever and they didn't want it to end.”
“The party was a great success, thank you!“
“Our Lego party was a huge success. The kids were all raving about it and had a fantastic time. Everything included was brilliant- the props, games, decorations, prizes and instructions were all great. The whole process from booking through to return was very smooth. Would absolutely use Packaway Parties again.”
"We have used Packaway Parties twice now - once for Roald Dahl and once for Star Wars. For someone like me without the creative, imaginative gift, these parties are an absolute winner! Liz has come up with some amazing ideas and ways of bringing the themes to life and making sure that everyone is involved and has a good time. Everyone who has been to the parties has really enjoyed them, particularly the birthday girl! They're also super easy to organise and run, making them perfect when you've not got a lot of time either!"
“Our Harry Potter party box really brought a magical touch to a family party. I think the adults enjoyed dressing up just as much as the kids! Having the information folder in the box was a fantastic help to get all the decorations, props and party games organised and saved us loads of time. I would definitely use this again!”
“We chose the Harry Potter themed party for our daughter's 7th birthday and she loved it! We all had great fun dressing up and decorating the house. The games were just right for this age group. It would have taken me hours to plan something similar myself, and I would have probably spent as much money buying the props, so it felt good value for money too.”
“The props and costumes really made the party, conjuring up all the atmosphere of life at Hogwarts. The whole process was made simple from beginning to end. I will definitely be recommending Packaway Parties to my friends.”
"We were looking for a fun idea, something a bit different for our son’s 2nd birthday and Packaway Parties was absolutely ideal! With a good range of themes to suit various interests and ages, Liz was really helpful in tailoring this further to exactly suit our needs and to personalise things like party bags and certificates for the kids. The kids loved all the games and with all the prep work done it was easy for me to run a party for 12 kids straight out of the box! We will definitely be using them again for future birthdays!"
“Our 8 year old absolutely loved her Harry Potter themed birthday. The games, props and outfits really did help bring the magic to life. The children are still speaking about the Honeydukes sweet shop experience.”
“Thank you so much for the package. It was great my daughter had a lovely day!”
“Thank you so much for the wonderful party box - the girls had a really fabulous time.”
“The party was AMAZING. Thank you so so much. Everything worked perfectly and their minds were completely blown by the Princess cauldron!!! It was amazing.”
“We had a fabulous time - the box was really great. It made such a difference to have all the resources for our Pirate party! Thanks again for a great service”
“We held the party yesterday and it was a great success!! The decorations etc were amazing and the games went down a treat. My niece has asked if we can do it again next year.”
“The boxes were marvellous. We all had such a lovely weekend at both parties and, most importantly, my sons and all of their friends really enjoyed themselves. Thank you very much.”
“Many thanks for your time and help – my daughter had the absolute best day”
“Thanks so much Liz! It was a great box of kit and will definitely bear you in mind for the next party”
“The Packaway Parties box was absolutely perfect for the celebrations and made the day easy to plan. What a box of treats! We were able to decorate the house full on Harry Potter style to surprise her and were even able to dress up ourselves. It really was so much fun and gave my daughter a truly memorable day. I have no hesitation in recommending the Packaway box to any HP fan or parent planning a party. The service from Liz was excellent and the box allows for a wonderful celebration.”
“The party was amazing, thank you. It was so easy to set up on the day. The children loved the Dino games.”
“Everything arrived as promised. Liz was very helpful and prompt at dealing with any enquiries. The party was a huge success and excellent value for money. We would highly recommend.”
“We ordered the Jungle Packaway Party for our daughter's 7th birthday. The box had absolutely everything needed to hold a brilliant party from start to finish, down to medals, props, game prizes, music and decorations. The party games were original and the children were really engaged. Communication was excellent and the ordering and delivery/return process very straightforward. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.”
“Just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful party. My son declared it the best birthday ever ... so I think that says it all!”
“We had a great time yesterday, My son loved his surprise party! The box was great, everything we needed and all the games and props were great. Thanks again for saving another lockdown birthday! Very much appreciated.”
“Well that was a hit! What an amazing array of activities and decorations - thank you so much. The kids loved it and it really made up for the locked down birthday restrictions!”
“We absolutely loved our Packaway Party! My daughter had the Harry Potter box and loved every second. We would absolutely get another box. The party was so comprehensive to follow and all the games were so much fun. We highly recommend.”
“We had a brilliant party and my daughter absolutely loved it, in particular the changing coloured candles! Thank you so much again, I will certainly be recommending you to friends.”
“We had a really wonderful weekend! I was actually quite emotional when I opened the box on Thursday and saw all of the amazing contents. The boys loved all of the different Superhero games and had great fun. We really couldn't have asked for any more. What you supplied was absolutely perfect!”
“We had a great time thanks and you had thought of everything. The sweet shop and the cauldron were particular hits. It was a shame that it was just the four of us but we managed to spread it out for the weekend. Thanks again for helping us make a lockdown birthday special. We have been recommending you to friends and family near and far.”
“Our Star Wars party was really good. It meant that we had lots to do even during lockdown. My daughter loved the Wookie Cookies game. I really liked the accuracy task and we all enjoyed the agility. The decorations were a hit and helped to make the day special. I love your packages!”
“We had a great time. My 8 year old daughter was spellbound coming downstairs to the theme tune and seeing all the decorations. She particularly loved Honeydukes”
“I can’t recommend Packaway Parties enough. Liz was incredibly helpful with selecting and organising the perfect party for my daughter in lockdown! My daughter had a brilliant time and said it was her best party ever! The amount of props and costumes that are provided gives you so many options and real authenticity to the theme you have chosen. I’m only disappointed I didn’t know about Packaway Parties sooner.”
"This is a fantastic idea, really well thought through and beautifully executed. It takes away the panic of trying to organise all the games and decorations yourself and there are some fun innovative ideas I’d never have come up with. We’ve done 2 of these parties and I cannot fault it in terms of fun and complete reliability. Highly recommend!"
“Thank you Liz. We would definitely come to you again and recommend to friends, it’s such a unique idea and it made a little girls lockdown birthday so memorable!”
“Thank you so much for the party, it was a roaring success they adored it and now want to do it all over again next weekend, or even tomorrow if they could.”
“Thank you for such enabling our little girl to have an amazing birthday despite the lockdown. Her and her little brother loved the party games & it entertained us all for hours! It was just a shame we couldn't have more children, but it’s definitely something we will do again in the future, such a great idea!”
“Thank you Liz, what an amazing party we had in a gazebo in November, in Scotland! Truly magical! Our Harry Potter party will go down in legend. Liz was lovely and so accommodating under the circumstances. Everything arrived as expected and was immaculately planned. I would really recommend the sweet shop and party bags. Thank you again.”
“Oh my goodness this was just brilliant! We had a Roald Dahl themed party for my daughter’s 8th birthday. Liz was very patient with all my questions and when the box arrived we were blown away!! So much creativity and thought has gone into the party, the planning, the decorations, the games, all the props and the instructions. It made it all very easy for us and the kids LOVED it. I would highly recommend using Packaway Parties and can’t wait for another birthday to try another theme!”
“We had a jungle themed party for my daughter’s 5th birthday and it was great! I loved how the activities were so varied so that the children were active, creative or made them think a little too! Everything was so easily packaged together it made set up very easy too! Would highly recommend.”
“The box arrived in plenty of time. It was packed with loads of brilliant decorations and props and the party guide was well thought out and easy to follow. The children had an amazing time. Would highly recommend and will be looking at options for next year!”
“Thoroughly recommend - party plan was very easy to follow and the 6 and 7 year olds loved all the party games. Everything we needed for an excellent Harry Potter party.”
“I was absolutely blown away with everything I received and the attention to detail. I even had costumes, party bags, games to play and a 2 hour fun filled party plan packed with activities. We were all very impressed and she told me I was the best Mummy in the world! So a very big thank you to Packaway Parties for making her dream come true, we would highly recommend.”
“I was blown away when the box arrived and couldn’t believe how many things were inside. The party went off just how I expected it and the children loved the party and all the games. I would highly recommend the Harry Potter box to any Harry Potter fan and would definitely consider having another party box later down the line.”
"We’ve had 2 party boxes now. The most recent was Star Wars and again it was absolutely brilliant! Everything you need and all the detailed game plans to have a faultless party. One guest commented ‘Thank you for the party. It was better than I expected it to be!’ Just wonderful, thank you."
"WELL what can I say .........this is the best idea I have ever come across! What a great experience from start to finish! As a busy mum and business owner this package completely took the stress away for me and created enjoyment for all! If I could give 6 stars I would! Thank you so much Packaway Parties and Liz we will be using you again for sure"
"I think by far it was one of the best parties! We did in the woods in a natural setting, the box came in time and with short notice and it had everything we needed for a successful party, games, instructions and decorations. Everything was very well planned to the last detail! Thank you!"
"Packaway parties were amazing, box was a delight to open and far more inside than we expected. Party plan was so detailed so knew exactly what to do and all my daughters friends had an amazing time. I would thoroughly recommend this company for your children’s parties."
“Everyone had a 'magical' time as one child quoted! I was really impressed with the whole package, so much included, more than I expected. The party plan was brilliant. I was happy with he price, it was so worth it. Less hassle for me....made having a party so easy. I would definitely hire again and have recommended to friends who were also very impressed.”
“We all just loved the party! We were so impressed by every aspect of it, the costumes, the decor, and the games. The sweet shop was the absolute highlight! We had a group of very happy and excited wizards! Thanks again for a wonderful business and great service.”
“We were really impressed with how much came in the box, really great value! We'd definitely hire again and recommend to others. An extra thanks for delivering to the Highlands - we often get frustrated when we see something great but then our postcode means we can't book. It's very refreshing to have a company go the extra mile!”
“Thank you so much for your party pack – we had a fantastic party yesterday (although exhausting) and my son and his friends had a wonderful time. We will certainly be looking at your other packages in the future. Many thanks again for the amazing pack!”
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.
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!
