How To Make Sure Your Outdoor Garden Party Is A Success | Garden Parties

Updated: Aug 10, 2023

Non-Stop Kids Entertainment have performed thousands of parties outdoors, well before we introduced our Garden Party Package. Everyone wants to take advantage of the hot weather (let's face facts, rain is inevitable in this country!) Nevertheless, there are a lot of great reasons to hold a birthday party outdoors.

Ensuring the Success of Your Outdoor Garden Party | Garden Celebrations

As well as garden parties, Non-Stop Kids have performed regularly outside at festivals as well. We're here to make sure your children's outdoor garden party is a huge success. Today we're going to outline the most important things you need to remember to make sure your child's party is a success.

Check If Your Entertainer Is Used To Performing Outside!

Of course we are going to be biased and say you should hire Non-Stop Kids to provide your entertainment. We have performed thousands of outdoor birthday parties with parents heaping us with tons of praise for our services afterwards. Our Garden Package is specifically designed for everything to work outside as well as contingency plans for unexpected outcomes. All of our PA equipment runs off an internal battery to work perfectly for both indoor or outdoor use.

If you decide to go with another entertainment service, it's always worth checking that they are used to performing outside. There are some entertainers who refuse to perform outside because of different reasons. Some of them don't have the right equipment or simply don't feel comfortable doing so. We highly recommend doing your research first and making sure they are prepared to perform in your garden. Always better to be safe than sorry. 

Inform Parents That The Party Will Be Outside!

While this one goes without saying, it's worth mentioning to other parents that the party will be held outdoors. It's a good way to prepare everyone for the weather as they can pack sunscreen and other things you might need for the children before the party begins. Likewise, giving the other parents a heads up in advance reduces the chance they will have made other plans that same day.

Put Up A Gazebo For Shade!

Temperatures in the summer range between 24°C to 30°C. When the weather reaches a scorching point, having shaded areas set up in your garden is always a great idea. It's a great way to make sure children are protected from the heat and have plenty of shade to protect them from heat exposure. During the party when they are sitting down to watch the show, that could last up to 45 minutes which is a long time to be in the direct sunshine. Likewise, if it does rain lightly for a while, the party can easily be moved under the shade.

Seating For The Kids!

Even the most energetic kids need to sit down and rest every once in a while. If you are planning to hire a children's entertainer, an ideal alternative might be to put blankets or similar furniture across the floor instead. As we will be playing plenty of party games and gathering everyone to watch a magic show, it would be a hassle to keep moving the chairs around for space each time. Blaneks are much easier to move and it allows the kids to sit comfortably during the show as well as to eat afterwards. You can even place them under your gazebo if the weather becomes too much as well!

A Contingency Plan In Case of Rain!

The one thing we cannot predict is the weather. This is why it is important to have a contingency plan in place for rain. Entertainers use expensive electrical equipment that would get damaged if exposed to rain. Always have a back up plan because this can make the difference between a successful party and a disastrous one!

Make Sure You Position The Kids Facing In The Right Direction!

While the children are sitting down to watch a show together, the last thing you want is the sun to be shining directly in their eyes. This can be an absolute nightmare, especially if they're trying to watch a show. Test the area first to predict where the sun glare is coming from. This helps you and your entertainer set up in the right area and stop everyone from being exposed to the bright glare.

Always Stay Hydrated!

Warmer weather means hydration will increase. If you have children running around outside in the sun, always make sure they are drinking plenty of water to stay cool in the summer heat. As our party games are very high energy with lots of dancing around, always make sure there's more than enough beverages to accommodate everyone and help them to stay hydrated!

Garden Birthday Parties Are Super Fun!

We can't emphasize enough how much we love our garden parties. They're super fun and easily the next best option for your children's parties. Summer is finally here, so let's make the most of it while it lasts. Speak to Non-Stop Kids about securing your outdoor entertainment and leave the rest to us.
