Throwing a Frozen Birthday Party!

We’ve heard that Frozen birthday parties are all the rage. We’d like to help you pull off a fantastic and magical Frozen birthday party for your sweet little girl and all her friends.

It’s all about the details

Frozen party ideas are all over the place. Cut paper snowflakes and make a table runner. Don’t forget to decorate your windows while you are at it.

There are so many ways to include small touches. Stick with an icy blue and white color scheme. Use blue and white streamers to mimic icicles!

Play music from the Frozen soundtrack to get the little ones excited! Costumes are so much fun. The long blonde braids are always a grand touch.

For the birthday party, start with Frozen themed invitations and encourage your sweet little guests to dress up as their favorite character. We can take care of the rest!

Invite Elsa and Sven for a visit

A Child’s Joy Frozen Birthday Party

We do offer reindeer pony rides. We can send a princess to your home for glitter face painting. We can even deliver snow to create a winter wonderland in your backyard.

Of course, we always have a matching bounce house as well.

Give us a call to reserve your Frozen birthday party to make your daughters dreams come true!

10 Tips for a Fun Children’s Party

Planning your children’s birthdays or holiday parties is not really child’s play… making it all seem effortless takes some preparation.

We Make It Look Easy

Here at A Child’s Joy, we’ve got you covered… there is no need to guess or fret. We have seen it all and would love to help you throw an unforgettable children’s party, because the memories are priceless.

A Few Bright Ideas

You’ve probably covered all the big things like invitations, cakes, pinatas, presents, and entertainment. Here’s a list of ten little things to help your bounce house party go smoothly…

  1. A Child’s Joy Children’s Birthday Cake and CandlesRemember to have a separate cooler to keep clean ice for drinks.
  2. Use small juice boxes, or buy pint size water bottles or soda cans instead of full size.
  3. Don’t order the pizza until after the guests arrive; never base it on the RSVPs.
  4. Purchase inexpensive, disposable tablecloths for the kiddie tables.
  5. Be sure to have plenty of trash bags on hand, and station trash cans in plain view.
  6. Spend some time discussing party etiquette with the birthday child and siblings.
  7. Make sure you have enough chairs for your guests and tables for the food and gifts.
  8. Decide what kind of music you want to have playing in the background.
  9. Line up some help for the party—a baby sitter’s hourly wage is money well spent.
  10. Remember the candles, and don’t forget the matches.

The details do matter and should not be left to the last minute. If you have any questions about throwing a children’s bounce house party, please let us know. We absolutely love to help!

Are You Ready to Party?

Bounce house parties are really fun. That’s our business. And parties are also a lot of work. We know and we understand that sometimes the small things get forgotten, so A Child’s Joy has come up with a checklist just for you…

A Child’s Joy Boring Backyard A Backyard Party

We just want to take a moment to make sure we cover the common sense stuff as you prepare to throw a bounce house party in your backyard. There are 10 of them:

  1.  Make sure you have the right key for your gate.
  2.  Clear a path from the gate into the backyard.
  3.  If you have dogs, police the yard at least a day before your party.
  4.  Identify underground sprinkler pipes and sprinkler heads.
  5.  Do not water for two days before the party to allow the ground to be dry and firm.
  6.  Use a grass catcher or be sure to rake and bag clippings when mowing.
  7. Make sure the timers on your sprinklers are off for the entire event date.
  8.  Have a plan for your pets. The excitement is too much for some.
  9.  Make sure pool gates are secure.
  10. Child proof the yard. Look for sharp or breakable items.

Make Magic Happen

With a little pre-planning, you can turn your backyard into a magic kingdom or a pirate ship or…

You can also make the transition back to reality really smooth and quick. As a parent, I’m sure you’ll appreciate making the loading in and clean up process so much easier.
