    I’d only do 2/3 games max they will run around and you might not even end up doing them

    Either day is fine if you give plenty of notice.

    Start a list and see how many you get up to. Theres always some who cant come or drop out last minute so invite 2 or so extras is my general thing to do with a home party though for a 5yr old 8-10 is prob a good maximum.lol

    Your welcome

    Alway eBay will be your friend to buy stuff aswell but get ds to pick his theme sooner rather then later and you need to allow time for postage etc as some sellers could be overseas

    Default WWYD? Birthday party

    Ok awesome! Normal party food! I was a little paranoid times had changed too much with party food lol
    I would have a few games prepared but honestly with a jumping castle and water and being dressed up they definitely won’t be bored!!
    These are a few things I did for party food ( I do go overboard but they are all quite easy!)

    I've done play centre with others there, and it's crazy!! It gets so expensive too.
    Not everyone rsvps.. I actually had so much stress going into this year, it wasn't good.
    I always took a fruit platter and small sandwhich platter in addition to the regular party food provided and they've gone down well each time! Just simple grapes, strawberries, orange, watermelon,blueberries etc.

    Next year we are doing an arvo tea at a park...a few platters - fruit, crackers and cheese, sandwiches, chips... done. Cake, and lolly bags to go home with, phone and Bluetooth speaker for music. Maybe pass the parcel .... maybe a pinata. Definitely 2 hours max, and I think 6-8 at 5 is a nice size.

    Default WWYD? Birthday party

    I agree with 2 hours and 2-3 games at that age. I think DS had about 15 kids for his 5th and it was chaos, so I’d stick to 10-12! I reckon home parties are good when they are small. We’ve only had 1 external party this year for his 9th. It was a specific activity and we were the only ones there. I’m not keen on play centers personally. Every time DD has been invited to one she’s ended up hurt as there’s too many kids going crazy and it’s hard to get to her if she’s in the middle of the circuit.

    DS had an avengers party this year and we did the fruit shield too. I didn’t worry about the dip though, just used mini marshmallows. Got a printed icing cake topper off eBay which looked awesome.

    Thank you so much everyone who has replied. I thought I’d mention to DS about it and ask what kind of party he would like.. he said a construction party (so I was wrong lol) he rattled off names and the list was about 25 kids 🤦🏻‍♀️

    Might have to strink the list. I did 19 kids for the dinosaur dig never again that many.

    Just make sure he doesn’t change his mind with his theme after you’ve started buying stuff

    I like the build a burger idea pic it’s fitting with a construction site

    Just remember Pinterest and eBay

    Haha I know right! I was like oh yeah we will talk about that mate.

    I think I’ll let him forget about it till just after Christmas and ask again. I’ll give him a few options and let him pick one lol construction is a huge thing for him, he loves everything construction.

    I LOVE the build a burger! That’s so awesome!

    I’m gonna have a look at stuff when he goes to bed tonight lol if he sees me looking he will go on about it for ages haha
