Children’s Garden Parties – Top Tips To Help Make Your Garden Party A Success.

Children’s Garden Parties

There is always a lot to think about when hosting a children’s party, even more so at the moment with Covid rules and regulations. Children’s garden parties are a  great option to help celebrate your child’s birthday We hope that this guide will help you host a fun and stress free Children’s Garden Party.

Setting up your garden

Is your garden child friendly? Any garden tools should be put away safely out of reach. Children’s toys can be a distraction during the party so are best put away out of sight until the party is coming to an end.

Check the garden is safe and secure and that children cannot leave the garden (for example through an unlocked gate)

You will need an area clear for the children to enjoy party games , dancing and maybe even a show.


For the grown-ups

At some point your adult guests will want to sit down and relax while the children have fun. Before your guests arrive it’s a good idea to spread some chairs around the garden.  Remember social distancing.

Don’t forget after your party you may want to clean and sanitise the chairs you have used

For the children

Use picnic blankets for the children to sit on. Picnic blankets are an easy option, they are quick and easy to lay out layout and adaptable to any size space.


If you have parasols or umbrellas they are handy for shade on a very hot day. Taking in to account the Welsh/UK weather, they can also offer protection from any unexpected rain shower!

The Best Food At Children’s Garden Parties- Keep It Simple

To keep everyone safe its best to avoid both buffets, which are very hands on and food that needs to be passed around.

We would recommend cardboard snack boxes that can be pre-prepared before the party and filled with all the children’s favourites. You could include a sandwich, packet of crisps, tasty treat, small cake or biscuit, fruit and a bottled drink.

The Birthday Cake

Even though we think that the traditional blowing out of candles on a birthday cake may well become a thing of the past, we do have a solution.  Instead of putting the candles on the main birthday cake, you could put the candles on to a cup cake. Sing happy birthday and blow the candles out on the cup cake. You can then slice the main birthday cake ready for your guests to take home.
