"My daughter had a Harry Potter party for her 10th birthday and we used Packaway Parties to mark her celebration. Everything was brilliantly organised and my girls and the guests had so much fun creating spells, but the smoking cauldron and the Monster Book Of Monsters were their favourites. I recommend Packaway Parties as they are amazing, prompt and well organized. Thank you for helping me to create one of the most beautiful memories for my daughter."

Ramona, Stoke On Trent September 2021

“The party was a great success. All the kids loved it. Thank you.“

Yannis, London September 2021

“I can't thank you enough. The party was a great success and will be remembered for years to come. I’m not sure what I will do next year to top it! The box was packed well and contained everything listed and really went above and beyond my expectations.”

Melanie, Tring September 2021

“The party went well thanks and OMG the package was so good! The games were brilliant the cauldron went down a treat and they loved the mist!! Also the candles were a great touch. Overall I think it was brilliant. I would definitely be using you again and highly recommend you!!”

Jessica, Battersea September 2021

“We loved the party package! They genuinely loved all of the games. We went full character for the whole thing which the kids loved but I think the whole thing has been done so well and so clearly, even if you’re just being yourself and introducing games, the kids would still love it. I would definitely recommend Packaway Parties“

Emily, Stoke on Trent September 2021

“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!”

Alex, Sidmouth September 2021

“The party was amazing!! All the kids had the best time!! One of the parents texted me today saying they were still talking about it.”

Rebecca, Coalville August 2021

“I hired the Harry Potter box for a 9 year old’s party. It was a hit with the children who loved the costumes, games and decorations. The party plan was simple to follow. The optional extra of the Honeydukes sweet shop is a must! The box arrived and was collected via courier and was very straight forward. I would definitely recommend Packaway Parties and would use them again!”

Lucy, Cheltenham August 2021

“The party was fantastic thanks, they all enjoyed it. And everyone was so impressed with the decorations.”

Karen, Plymouth July 2021

“The girls had a great time at the party. The George's marvellous medicine was a hit, although we had to take it outside as some of the girls found the smell a bit overpowering! The girls took it in turns to read the Roald Dahl extracts at the start of each game, which went down really well. Thank you for another meticulously planned and fun party.”

Claire, Didcot July 2021

“My son really enjoyed his dinosaur party and it took some of the stress of planning off us. The games were well thought out and we would have had to spend hundreds of pounds just to get the decorations never mind everything else that was included in the party box (the dinosaur costumes were a massive hit with the kids). Liz was very responsive and helpful. Thank you for making a stressful time a little easier!”

Gemma, Sheffield July 2021

Sam, Thame July 2021

“The party was fantastic. It was so much fun to have 12 excited faces staring up at me and so well organised/prepped. I can gush at length about how great it was and how much lovely feedback we got too. There was so much in that crate it was like unpacking Mary Poppins bag! Saving me so much time and effort when working crazy hours and juggling a much small child is almost priceless.”

Sophie, Cambridge July 2021

“My daughter had a lovely birthday. All her friends had a great time. The games were all fantastic. Everything was great and the kids were all saying it was the best party ever.”

Zoe, Fife July 2021

Kathy, Ashford July 2021

“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”

Sarah, Leicester July 2021

“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 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!”

Eleanor, Great Waltham June 2021

“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!”

Liz, Stone June 2021

“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.”

Lynsey, Norfolk June 2021

“The party was a great success, thank you!“

Emily, Hertord June 2021

“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.”

Emma, Edinburgh June 2021

"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!"

Ellie, Cullompton June 2021

“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!”

Jill, Glossop June 2021

“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.”

Dominique, York June 2021

“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.”

Helen, Berkhamstead June 2021

"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!"

James, Thatcham May 2021

“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.”

Laura, London May 2021

Natalie, Herts April 2021

“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.”

Laura, Warrington February 2021

Melissa, Tenbury Wells February 2021

“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.”

Marsha, Weston-Super-Mare February 2021

“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!”

Emma, Frodsham February 2021

“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”

Laura, Bristol February 2021

“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.”

Kelly, London February 2021

"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!"

Joey, Leigh January 2021

“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!”

Sophie, Wistow November 2020

“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.”

Becky, Dunfermline November 2020

“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!”

Priya, London October 2020

“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.”

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.”

Michelle, Colchester August 2020

“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.”

Marsha, Hertfordshire September 2020

"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."

Wendy, Epping September 2020

"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"

Vicky, Warrington September 2020

"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!"

Anna, Milton Keynes September 2020

Katie, St Leonards February 2020

“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!”

Claire, Ardgour February 2020

“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!”

Georgina, Hounslow February 2020


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!
