Need a little help planning the Perfect Party?

Princess Party

Wish Upon A Party is a successful Children’s Entertainment Company based in Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Kent and Northamptonshire. Specialising in imaginative, theatrical and beautifully created entertainment, for every occasion, budget and theme designed to make every party a celebration to remember forever!

Planning the perfect party for your little one can be quite a task; with so much to organise and prepare before the party date. We all want our children to have beautiful parties, filled with fun, magic and memories, but without any of the stress!

Wish Upon A Party has some fabulous ideas and top tips to help you get started…

What will your theme be?

Have a look at Wish Upon A Party’s website for the most popular themes- we’ve done everything from Fairy Princesses to Dinosaur Rangers! You can have so much fun theming your event - start with themed invitations, and from then on let your imagination run wild!

The Venue

Choosing a venue for your event will largely depend on how many people you are inviting. If it's just a few friends and family members you might decide to have a party at home? If you plan to invite a whole class of guests ( 20 children plus) then you might think about hiring a hall or another venue such as a local café with a function room - we have local recommendations for all of the areas that we cover and will gladly help you choose your perfect venue.


To ensure all your guests can attend, send out the invitations at least 3 weeks to a month before your party date. Guests will love receiving an invitation to the 'Royal Ball' or 'Dinosaur expedition' - this is a great way to set the tone for your forthcoming event! Encourage guests to dress up, and also don't be afraid to invite parents to stay for a glass of 'pirate punch!'


Choosing your entertainment can be quite a daunting task - go by recommendation and word of mouth. Also make sure that when you are doing your research you get a feel for the style of entertainer you will be using - email, call and check social media for popular companies.

Find out what your Entertainer will bring with them and what, if anything, you will need to provide for them. At a Wish Upon A Party booking we only require a small table and a power supply- we provide the rest!

Discuss with your Entertainer what you would like them to do – perhaps your little one loves a particular song. Wish Upon A Party’s Entertainers can tailor your party to perfectly match the preferences and needs of your child.


Are you going to supply the food yourself or employ caterers? Are there any children with dietary requirements? Theme your food – sandwiches cut into hearts and stars always a hit with children of all ages!

Party Bags

Party bags or loot bags are a fantastic way for your guests to remember your event - stay within your theme - a colouring-in treasure map for a pirate party wrapped in twine for pirates, a magic wand and a 'personalised spell' for fairy parties are a perfect and inexpensive way to say thank you to guests without breaking the bank!
