Disco Parties in Brisbane: How To

 

Did you know we host the most fantastic disco parties in Brisbane? (Well, we like to think so, and our customers agree!)

We think discos and dancing go hand in hand; they are two peas in a pod; best friends – you get the idea. We’ve got a few ideas to share with you about how you can turn your Dancing Queen Party entertainment in to a disco party!

 

Let’s start at the very beginning

Plan your disco party to start in the late afternoon. It’s lots of fun having a disco when it’s dark out. Let your guests know on the invitation to come dressed in their best disco outfit (this is pretty easy for your guests to organise and it’s so nice for everyone to be dressed up!) Find your disco space – this is likely to be a room in your home – rumpus room, play room, lounge room, garage. We recommend having a space that is slightly separated from the parents (assuming your guests are about 7+ years of age) so the kid’s feel all grown up and cool in their own exclusive space.

 

Plan out your entertainment

The simplest way to organise your party entertainment is to invite a professional to do the job for you. Go here for to look at our dance entertainment packages for disco parties in Brisbane and disco parties on Gold Coast. You want entertainment that is going to captivate, engage and excite your guests. With great music that kid’s love to sing along to and lots of dancing – it is a disco party after all. We recommend inviting our dance character Honey Hip Hop to host your disco party. Honey performs and teaches the latest dance moves to the biggest tunes of the moment. Everyone will be movin’ and groovin’ to the beat. Super enjoyable and memorable for kiddos.

 

The Disco Decorations

Creating the disco atmosphere is so important at disco parties. There are some very affordable ($25 or less) disco balls, lights and glow stick options at Kmart that can easily turn your lounge room into a disco! Helium balloons floating up above; a beaded curtain as you enter the disco room; fairy lights decorating the party table. The options are endless and all very much accessible and affordable; your only limit is your imagination. Keep it simple or go all out; it’s really up to your budget and the time you can dedicate to your planning and decorations.

 

Let your guests bring the disco home with them

Disco party favours are pretty easy to do and kid’s get SO excited if they can go home with something they can use or wear! Check out your local discount store for affordable disco inspired gifts. Look for anything disco balls, light up, glow or shiny golden.

 

So…

Disco parties in Brisbane for Brisbane kids who love to have move and groove are always a huge hit. The memories will last a lifetime and your guests wont stop talking about your disco party for weeks to come.

Should I host my kids party at home?

Should I host my kid’s party at home?

kids party at home

The place you choose to have your kid’s birthday party is a big decision to be made right at the beginning of your party planning process. Have your kids party at home? At an all-inclusive venue? Or perhaps at a community/scout/neighbourhood hall. Some people don’t give it a second thought and know exactly what they will do. But maybe you need a bit of guidance…

 

Cost

  • At home: To start with, it’s waaay cheaper to host your kids party at home. There are NO venue costs! With venue often being that one really big expense, having the party at home immediately reduces that cost by 100%. Lower cost parties are the bomb diggity. Right?
  • At a venue: It will definitely cost more to host your party at a venue, but perhaps the positives outweigh the negatives for you, read on to find out more.

 

Choice

  • At home: You can do what you like, when you like. You can organise your own food or catering, choose what decorations you like and where they will go. You can be totally flexible with hosting the party at a time that suits you.
  • At a venue: Your choices are often somewhat limited, this is a great thing for people who like to procrastinate or struggle making decisions. Limited choice can be a good thing in some cases, although can mean added expenses if your catering and decoration choices are limited to ‘recommended suppliers’.

 

The Set up and pack up

  • At home: Set up and pack up time is unlimited. Whatever works for you really. You can spend a whole week setting up the deco’s and food if you wanted to, doing a little bit each evening after work, getting all excited and maintaining your party planning Zen.
  • At a venue: Some venues might do everything for you (but where’s the fun in that?). This means zero set up and pack up required by you. Other venues (e.g. community halls) will give you a limited time to set up and pack up. And don’t forget about packing and unpacking your car with all the food and decorations you plan on using.

 

The dreaded tidy up

  • At home: There is no escaping the tidy up at home. It’s likely you’ll have a tidy up before and after the party to ensure your place is looking spic and span before your friends arrive. Then, after the party chaos ensues, you’ll need to make your home liveable again. Keeping the party contained to one area/room of the house can help with the set up and tidy up.
  • At a venue: Some venues will take care of all of this for you; awesome! If your venue is a Community Hall, it’s up to you to return the hall back to the state you found it in, so your own tidy up is a must.

 

The Verdict – kid’s party at home? Or at a venue?

Both options are great. You can’t go wrong. To make your decision, you need to decide what is most important to you. If a full tidy of your home is a nightmare waiting to happen, go with a venue. Maybe you want to cut down costs, have the party at home. Short on time or creativity is just not your thing? Go with an all-inclusive venue. If you like everything just so, have your kids party at home and have all the control you want.
