“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.”

Clare, London June 2023

“Thank you we had a super time! Lots of very excited princesses and pirates. The cauldron was a huge hit and by the end they were convinced they were real magical princesses. Thank you for providing such a fun a thoughtful experience.”

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. The courier arrangements were also brilliant and made the whole process so simple. I thought the price was good, I would definitely consider using it again and would definitely recommend it! 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!!”

Madeline, London June 2023

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

“The party was so much fun! My son absolutely loved all the decorations and little touches and the sweet shop went down a treat! They all really enjoyed wearing their builders vests and getting their certificates at the end. I think the service you provide is fab and the box was perfect with everything we would want/need. I have recommended Packaway Parties to anyone I’ve spoken to and wouldn’t hesitate to use in the future. Thank you for everything”

Nat, Bristol June 2023

“Great party experience - everything we needed was in the box, decorations and all!”

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

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

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

“My first impressions were WOW this is amazing and that followed right through the party. The decorations were excellent and lots included. The games were all appropriate for the age of the party. I have given the details to other parents too as they all commented how good it was. I loved the sweets all in the theme of the party too and the tablecloth really made it feel special. Everything was great and I’ll be ordering again in the future :-)”

Helen, Iwade April 2023

“Packaway Parties Dinosaur Theme was the perfect party package for my son’s 6th birthday who refers to himself as a ‘Dino Expert’. Highly recommend to any parent looking for the best way to host a dinosaur party at home. All decorations provided, handmade costumes for all party goers, making them look and feel the part. Variety of games with clear instructions. The Dino hoppers were a real hit! We decided to order the sweet shop given as a prize for completing all marked tasks. Kids went away happy expressing ‘It was the best party ever’. Son loved it and has already decided on next year’s theme already. Loved the fact that nothing is wasted and can be used again and again! What better way to save our environment!”

Rachel, Oxford April 2023

“Thank you so much for helping to create an amazing party for our daughter, she had the best time as did all her friends! It was good value with everything in as we didn’t need to buy anything. Would happily recommend and use again. Thanks again for everything”

Gill, Manchester April 2023

“We all had a super time! Especially the birthday boy 🙂 The package contents was great. A good selection of general decorations to choose from depending on the space - we used about 75% of them I’d estimate. The specific items and games were terrific. All the games were popular and a nice mix of running around and sitting. We were very happy with the pricing and would certainly consider using Packaway Parties again and recommend it.”

Katy, Nottingham April 2023

“Thank you so much we had an amazing party with kids. I would definitely recommend your company and the pricing is spot on. I was a little concerned that 10 year old might find the games a little childish but they all absolutely loved it. And in the end we managed to do all the games as their interest did not wain. Thank you so much for an amazing party.”

Katia, London April 2023

“We hired the Harry Potter Packaway Party and my 7yo daughter had a great time. Plenty of games, ideas and easy to follow instructions. We added in some of our own ideas such as a potion making class too. I would definitely recommend Packaway Parties. Easy to order and arrived in a secure box on time.”

Nikki, Preston April 2023

“Our overall experience with Packaway Parties was excellent. When my daughter announced that she would like a Harry Potter party for her birthday I didn't have a clue how to put it together for her without it costing a bomb and spending hours sourcing games and decorations. Using Packaway Parties was SO easy and worth every penny. Liz was fantastic at communicating the whole way through and everything was super organised. My daughter and her friends had a wonderful fun afternoon, I would definitely use again.”

Louise, High Littleton April 2023

“Thank you so much for the party box, my daughter and her friends had a magical day!”

Shani, Trysull April 2023

“My son and his friends had an absolute blast. Parents were very impressed. They loved it and he was one happy boy! Thank you again.”

Fatima, Derby April 2023

“It went really well and our boy and his friends loved it! We would definitely use again and recommended to a friend who was also so impressed by it all.”

Ged, Birmingham April 2023

“It was AWESOME. The number of decorations was amazing. Delivery and collection was amazing. I would 100% recommend to others. Thank you so much again, I think your packages are simply genius and will be telling all and sundry to use your service!”

Charli, Bradford on Avon March 2023

“It went really well, the kids (and us) had a great time. It was hard work but we enjoyed it and very much got into character. Pretty much used the schedule, we had food earlier in the proceedings as party was over a lunch time. Everything was included and I thought was really good value for money.”

Joanna, Banstead March 2023

“The party was great! Thank you so much, your party plan made it so easy to run. You get SO much in the box, I was able to make the hall I hired look great. I ran the party according to the schedule, being able to set up the games beforehand and the timings were perfect finishing the party exactly after 2 hours! The instructions were so simple to understand and work through and the way the box is packed with the games etc in different bags helps so much too! I would definitely recommend and use again.”

Michelle, Christchurch March 2023

“Without a doubt the most stress-free party I've run. My daughter and her friends absolutely loved all the activities and games. It arrived really well organised with easy to understand and clear instructions. My daughter found the arrival of the crate and going through the contents as exciting as the party. Would recommend.”

Rosie, Wareham March 2023

“My daughter had a lovely time. The information you gave was brilliant. The kids really loved choosing their magic names and I loved the sorting hat! The candles were a lovely activity and the monster book was great fun. I loved the fact that I don’t have to source all the items for the party and everything went so easily back into the box and send back to be used again. Such a great idea.”

Lenita, Newton Abbot March 2023

“My daughter recently had a Harry Potter party and I ordered the Packaway Party Box from Liz. I was very pleased with the way the box came and how detailed the schedule was for the games. There were plenty of decorations so our hall was easily transformed into Hogwarts School hall. The delivery was made in advance so we could study the book in terms of suggested games before the party day. In our case, we invited the entertainer who helped us with the games but the box is absolutely suitable for parents who want to lead the party themselves. I can’t recommend Liz’s service highly enough and we will definitely use her in the future.”

Liubov, London March 2023

“The party went really well! The kids had an awesome time - costumes were a hit! Thanks heaps!”

Liv, Warborough March 2023

“Thank you so much for the brilliant party box! We had a great time! The decorations were excellent and really set the scene! The children loved picking their sweets. The attention to detail was great and the children had an amazing time! All the games were great fun and the children really enjoyed it! Would definitely hire again and have already recommended to others!”

Rosie, Bristol March 2023

“We had the Harry Potter party package, which was just so good. Way exceeded my expectations, and I loved all the range of games included. The Honeydukes sweetshop was also a massive hit. Liz was very helpful as well. Would 100% recommend. Thank you!!”

Caitlin, Saffron Walden March 2023

“We had a great party thank you. We totally loved the party in a box idea, and it worked so well for us at home. It was lovely that everyone could dress up (including us!) and feel part of the experience. The decorations were totally fab. I would highly recommend your service to anyone that asks. Thank you for everything.”

Bryonie, Southwick March 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.”

Tracy, Sevenoaks March 2023

“A brilliant experience from start to end! We have just had the Roald Dahl party for my daughter’s 7th birthday for 16 of her friends. The games were all brilliant, and perfectly pitched to that age group. The props / costumes / prizes / instructions were all excellent and Liz was very easy to deal with. Would highly recommend.”

Annabel, Great Chesterford March 2023

“The party went well, a few of the children said it was the best party they have ever been to.”

Mark, Chester March 2023

“Wow - what a party!!! The children absolutely loved it. Everybody said how brilliant it was. The thought that has gone into it and the booklet explaining everything made it easy to know what we had to do. It was all amazing and apparently the best party ever! Thank you”

Lucy, Cotebrook March 2023

“Liz at Packaway Parties is wonderfully communicative and efficient. We ordered the Harry Potter package for 12 girls aged 8-9. The resources enabled us to transform our home into a magical portal to Hogwarts. The itinerary and games provided were fairly simple to follow and gave us an action-packed two hours. As a parent, it was a sweet relief to be able to pack up all the party paraphernalia into one big box, which was collected by a courier, included in the price. In a culture where there's so much fast fashion and waste, it's good to know that the items will be used many times over and won't increase the clutter at home. Although we are quite creative, we saved so much time by not having to collate and prepare the resources ourselves - and money too.”

Rachel, Ipswich March 2023

“The party was a great success thank you. Lots of fun was had and we were very pleased with the package contents. We followed the schedule and thought it was timed well. We thought that the pricing was fair and we would hire again/refer to friends.”

Charlotte, Newquay March 2023

“Absolutely fantastic company. Kids parties made easy. We had a Lego party for my sons 6th birthday and Liz was great with communication. The massive kit arrived with huge amounts of party equipment and games. Plus a folder with detailed information on how to structure the day, what games to play and even supplied the prizes. All games were individually bagged and so very easy to make happen with a busy house of children. Incredible attention to detail and so well organised. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Packaway Parties. Thank you Liz for making a child very happy (and the parents too!)”

Claire, Wantage February 2023

“We have had some lovely feedback from the children and parents: ‘It's the best party that they have ever been to.’ So thank you again. It was fantastic, so well organised and thought out. Will definitely do another. I normally do everything myself but I was so pleased to find your page. It was just what we were looking for, without having to do it having all the stress and planning to do ourselves.”

Jeanette, Grimsby February 2023

“Thank you very much for the brilliant Roald Dahl party box - the kids had a great time!”

Zoe, London February 2023

“I recently hosted the Packaway Lego Party for my son's 6th Birthday with 23 children and it was absolutely brilliant!! Liz from the start was great and really helpful, quick responses on all communication we had, any questions I had were answered straight away and the whole process has been flawless. The attention to detail is amazing, as described you literally have everything you need in one big box to host an epic party. The delivery and collection process was so effortless and as its sent a few days before the party you can familiarise yourself with all the decorations and instructions. We had the deluxe package which included the pre- filled party bags which was a great option! The party instructions are so detailed, well thought out and clear to follow. From start to finish it’s a fantastic concept and would highly recommend Packaway Parties and will be booking them again!”

Natalie, Haddenham February 2023

“The party went really well. Our daughter and her friends adored it and lots of parents have said they had heard amazing things! We thought the contents and games were great. The kids loved the cauldron, the dementor costume game and the Monster Book of Monsters the most but were so quiet and engaged with the Sorting Hat too. They all loved the spells and had a great laugh. The tasting of the beer/ truth serum was great. The props were awesome. Several of the kids said it was the best party ever and really cool. Thank you so much we will use you again next year for my son who wants one too!”

Katie, Cardiff February 2023

“It was a great party - thank you. I’m a big fan of your business!“

Jennie, Wilmslow February 2023

“Thanks, my son and his friends had a wonderful time!”

Beverley, London February 2023

“The party was amazing thank you and definitely impressed our guests and their parents. We will hopefully be ordering from you again for other parties. The box looked wonderful and it was great to have so many different options for games and decorations.”

Naziya, Leeds February 2023

“Thank you so much for the party package - the party was a huge success. Several guests declared it the best party they'd ever been to and the birthday girl definitely agreed!”

Gemma, Sutton February 2023

“Would highly recommend the package and service was brilliant, smooth, easy. We had a fab party :)”

Harpreet, Lightwater February 2023

“Overall impressions were really good. The box was very neatly packed and everything was really well labelled and clear what it all was for. The pricing felt very fair and I would definitely recommend.”

Charlotte, Addlestone February 2023

“My overall impression of the package contents is amazing. A very well organised and helpful package. The pricing is reasonable and economical. For years I've been hiring entertainers and buying decorations online for my daughter's birthday. I spent a lot of money and effort. This time, it was so helpful and less stressful. If I've known about your package, I would have hired it years ago. I would definitely recommend to other parents the Packaway Parties.”

Mahal, Lower Feltham February 2023

“We all had a great time yesterday at the party. Thank you again for all the fantastic props and great plan. I'll definitely recommend your packages to family and friends for parties.”

Anna, Attleborough February 2023

“Thank you so much, we had a really great party. It was so easy to follow the instructions and all the games were really fun. We loved all the fun details and thoughtfulness involved in creating a really great experience.”

Kerry, Lytham St. Annes January 2023

“There were way way more decorations than I expected and the village hall looked brilliant. The best comment was from a mum who in her opinion as a professional event organiser said we had done a great job! Thank you for a great day.”

Verity, Burton on Trent January 2023

“Really helpful box. We had a Harry Potter party and everything was included from decorations to wands and cloaks, and a game plan. There was an easy to follow, step by step guide. Everyone seemed to have fun.”

Carol, Chester January 2023

“The party went well thank you - it helped hugely that the instructions were so clear and everything was so well organised. The birthday boy's opinion was that it was his best party ever, so it doesn't get better than that! I had feedback from parents afterwards that the children had had a lot of fun. I couldn't have done it without the party pack, and I really like the fact that we now don't have lots of party props hanging about we probably won't be able to use next year. So I think the concept is brilliant.”

Annuka, Oxford January 2023

“The party was a huge success! All the messages we've had from the parents of the children who came have been so complimentary. Feedback is "It was the best party they've ever been to" and that we "have set the bar high, "so many exciting things going on, our daughter was telling us about it all evening". "It was brilliant" "fabulous party". Very well organised, lovely quality, loads of decorations and the costumes were great”

Carys, Portishead January 2023

“Party was great thanks. Instructions very clear and everything made sense. Loads of great props and all the children had a fabulous time. Thanks so much, it was so well thought out!”

Sarah, Taunton January 2023

“Excellent service from Liz throughout. The party plan works very well and every little detail is taken care of. Quality of the props and toys and games was excellent. We all had a great time.”

Simon, Bookham January 2023

“The party was great thanks. The package and the guide was great. The kids loved Dobby. The Dementor game was a surprise hit too. The pricing was good and I’d definitely recommend. Also great that there’s no waste as everything is packed up to be used again.”

Louise, Stockport January 2023

“Our three year-old son and his friends loved their Jungle party. Liz was incredibly helpful with my very last-minute party organisation and went out of her way to oversee the delivery and include a snow leopard which my son had particularly requested. The games were great fun and not too stressful to organise and the decorations were lovely. Best of all it can pretty much all be reused again and again by different people. A great concept very well executed!”

Rosanne, London January 2023

“The party went really well, thank you! Loved all the games and we followed the schedule you set which worked brilliantly. Found the notes in the pack so useful to work through, we never would have come up with such great ideas for games without this! I’ll definitely recommend Packaway Parties for others (have done already!) and will consider you for future parties.”

Chloe, Cambridge January 2023

“The party was amazing!!! It was such a magical, memorable afternoon. We loved getting the box and putting everything out together. The props and games were fab and there were so many little surprises that delighted my daughter as we were setting up. The kids had a ball at the party and it whizzed by, following your carefully thought through instructions. I think you've got a really brilliant idea. It was stress free for us parents and something really special and different.”

Michelle, Brislington January 2023

“Thank you for a wonderful pack - the costumes and games are brilliant. My son and his friends were thrilled to take part in the Harry Potter games. Visiting Honeydukes was the highlight!”

Nimu, Salisbury January 2023

“The party was brilliant! It went so well! Everyone was so positive and complimentary - they thought that we had organised all the games so well!! It was really well thought out and everything had been considered. The props were really good and so appropriate for each game.”

Gemma, Southampton January 2023

“Thank you for your great service! You've been very helpful and quick to reply throughout! As a stressed-out mum whose child has a birthday so close to Christmas I was really grateful to not have to think about things like party bags and decorations etc. Packaway Parties really reduced the stress of party planning!!”

Heather, Falkirk January 2023

“It was very easy to book with you and your communication has been excellent. The pack booklet was excellent and the parents at the party commented on how great everything looked. We would use Packaway Parties again & would recommend - it would be very expensive to foot for all these games and props to then have no need for them soon after event!”

Gemma, Bristol January 2023

“We hired a Harry Potter party package and it was fantastic. Games, decorations etc were great. Children had an amazing time. I think the candles were the biggest hit. Second favourite was the Hedwig key race and everyone loved the Book of Monsters! The party planner was very well written and easy to follow. I would definitely recommend it.”

Magda, Bury St Edmunds January 2023

“We had the most fantastic party with your Packaway Party box - thank you so much!! I will definitely be recommending your business to others. Everything was so well organised and the decorations looked amazing when they were put up. All the games went down very well. Thanks again for a wonderful and immaculately organised service.”

Jenny, Stockport January 2023


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.
