Can I have my party at home or in my garden?
Octopus Parties can be at your home, garden or venue. As long as there is space for the number of children agreed to move around.
How long is the party for?
Octopus Parties run for 1h, 1½h or 2 hours, variations on this theme are welcome.
Before booking your Party and deciding the day and time, please have an alternative in case your first choice is not available.
If having a party at home, make sure there is space to move around for the number of children invited and distractions are put away.
If hiring a venue please keep in mind if you are going to have parents staying, sometimes it’s a good idea to have them in another room to keep the volume down.
If the children are age 3, octopus parties encourage the parents to stay and get involved in the story. Of course parents can watch older children too, but please do so discretely or join in the activities so the children don’t get self-conscious. This is also to allow the Actor to give the children the best possible party for the birthday child and other children!
Octopus parties also recommends to clear balloons off the floor and other things that can be a distraction for a great party!
