How far in advance should I send out the invites and how many children should I invite?
We recommend sending out your invitations approximately 3 weeks prior to your party to give you enough time to get rsvps and order necessary supplies. A lot of people say your child's age plus two is a good number to invite but personally I think inviting only 6 kids and then 1 or 2 don't show up could be disappointing for your child. I really think it's up to you and your child. It's not necessary to invite the whole class - if you don't know who your child's friends are at daycare/kindy/preschool/school then ask their carer or teacher and then when old enough just ask your child. Please refer to our Tips section at www.ezykidsparties.com.au/tips.htm for more assistance with planning your child’s party.
How far in advance do I need to order packages and book entertainment?
For DIY Party Packages, we recommend you order these 2-3 weeks in advance. However we do generally have all items in stock so don't panic if you have left it until the last minute, just depends on your themes, numbers and our suppliers. For Hosted Party Packages and kids party entertainers we recommend you book these at least 4 weeks in advance to ensure a host or entertainer is available as they get booked up quickly (you can advise numbers closer to the date of your party).
What if you don’t have the theme listed that my child wants?
No problem, in most cases we can source party wares, decorations, loot bags and contents and games for you but please give us at least 3 weeks notice prior to the date of your child’s party if you can so that we can order in these items. Also, please note that the price may not be as competitive as what we can source our listed range of themes for, depending on the theme and the supplier.
What is included in a DIY (Do It Yourself) Party Package?

What is included in a Hosted Kids Party Package?
Each Hosted Kids Party Package includes all the tableware, decorations, loot bags, party favours, games & activities you need to host a kids party plus a party host, in costume for most themes, to setup and run all the games and activities (for duration of 2 hours in most cases). Each theme lists the inclusions but items usually include:
Please note that props and games equipment included as part of a Hosted Party Package is on a hire basis only, with the exception of items such as tattoos, pass the parcel, balloon and food based/consumable party games and activities.
What does the Party Host do?
Your Party Host will arrive at the party 30min to 1 hour before your party and set up the decorations, tableware, props and games ready to play. Once the children have arrived they will get them together and run the games and activities for a duration of 2 hours (or however long your package is for). Then they will pack up the games (usually the parents will bring out the cake at this point) and leave. Please note they are not there to supervise the children and parents must be responsible for their children at all times. All of our Games Hosts are Blue Card holders and experienced at working with children.
Can you tailor a package?
Certainly, please just send us your requirements and desired theme and we can tailor a package for you. You can also mix and match themes and games if you like, especially if you need something for boys and girls.
What locations do you operate?
Do It Yourself party packages can be shipped anywhere. Please email me for international shipping rates.
Hosted Party Packages are currently available on the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane and will be available in Melbourne from March/April 2011 with plans to expand to Sydney by the middle of 2011.
All kids party entertainers, face painters and jumping castles are based on the Sunshine Coast with some of them also available in Brisbane.
Can I have the party at your place?
This is the first thing that one of my friends asked me when I first told her about my idea for Ezy Kids Parties! Ah no, sorry... but if you don’t want the mess at your house we have listed some parks and other venues where we can do a hosted party package for you. Just remember you may not have the mess to clean up at home but you will need to lug all the stuff somewhere else instead and then clean up and bring it all home again. Or of course you can organise for us to do it for you as part of a package. Please note that if you do want to have it in a park somewhere and you want something like a jumping castle you need to obtain council permission first.
Do we ship international?
Yes, we can ship international. Please find below an estimate of costs and shipping times:

"Hi Michelle, Just wanting to say a big thank you for the two beautiful princesses who came to host Hannah's birthday. Princess Sally and Princess Hayley were absolutely wonderful. They kept the girls entertained and happy. Last night Hannah gave me a big cuddle and said "Thank you Mummy, that was the best birthday ever!!" So once again, Thank you....Your business cards were quickly snapped up too."
"The party was a huge hit. My daughter said it was the best day she has ever had. And all the kids left with big smiles on their faces. Thank you to yourself for organising it all and the girls for controlling the mayhem, they were great. It really was a great party and I appreciate the extra photos."
"We had the disco party and my daughter and her friends just loved it and we could relax and just enjoy it as well."
"I would just like to say that the party was fantastic and Sally did a great job, my son and his friends loved her. I will certainly use your service again. All of the parents that were here were also very impressed."
"Next time I would ask Ezy Kids parties to do more rather than try to do so much myself. It was a huge help having someone to entertain the kids."
