WIT, GAMES, IMPROVISATION, MUSIC, DANCING... I'M SURE YOU'RE ON MY WAVELENGTH!!
The first hour is the sit-down show: general clowning, balloon modelling, magic etc.
Super fast-paced entertainment with no time for boredom!
Lots of audience participation - only the children, adults need not worry!
Then it's over to you for food time; that's when I paint a small design on the children's cheeks or arms and blow up all the balloons for the end!
Your candles are usually blown out just before or after the food break; I have the 'Happy Birthday' music so don't worry if everyone is tone deaf!
The final thirty minutes or so are filled with dancing games and EVERYONE gets a balloon prize at the end.
If you would like to make a pass the parcel then go for it: not too massive though or it'll take about an hour to open!
Balloons on the floor look very nice but don't expect them to last haha!
This is just a general pattern - no two children are the same so no two parties are the same; some audiences are boisterous, some quiet, so I take each performance as it comes!
A TYPICAL TWO HOUR PARTY GOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS:
A ONE HOUR PARTY RUNS PRETTY MUCH THE SAME, JUST SHORTER!
