The Official Kids Party is a mobile event company who take the stress and strain out of throwing a kid’s party and turn it into a one of a kind experience.

Think of them as your personal event organiser, offering everything you need to plan the perfect children’s party.

Whatever your child is into, Miriam and her team of dancers, stylists, nail painters, make-up artists and sleepover specialists can make it happen.

All you need to do is put the guest list together (they can even design your e-invite) – they’ll take care of everything else.

They offer four signature party experiences:

  • Dance – anything from street dance to Strictly

  • Pamper – suitable for kids from six to 16 plus ‘mummy and me’ parties

  • Sleepover – themes include tropical paradise sleepover and create your own

  • Princess – A princess of your choice will host

They also offer discos, cheerleading, superhero and themed sleepover parties with new themes ‘space’ and ‘football’ launching soon.

If your child is really into something The Official Kids Party doesn’t currently offer (although new themes are launched regularly) it’s worth enquiring about creating a bespoke experience.

We invited 11 girls (ages ranged from 10 to 15) for a Girly Spa Party – Platinum Package. This included:

  • 1 hour of pre-party room transformation (throws, tablecloths, bunting, honeycombs, LED candles, cushions…)

  • 2 hour party (with 20 min food break)

  • Girly party leader + spa specialists

  • Individual massaging and bubbling foot spas for every guest

  • Individual pink foot towels

  • Pedicure including foot soak, exfoliation + foot massage

  • Toe nail filing + painting

  • Fluffy slippers + satin spa robes

  • Age appropriate magazines

  • Spa headbands

  • Relaxing neck pillows

  • Chocolate facial with cucumber eyes

  • Finger nail painting

  • Glitter makeover with festival face jewels (prepare for the glitter to get everywhere!)

  • High quality sound system with personalised playlist

  • Personalised spa certificates awarded to every guest

  • Welcome drink for every guest (non-alcoholic champagne) + pink champagne glasses

You can also add extras if you want to take things up a notch – we went for a Braid Bar but other options include:

  • Party bags

  • Candy floss stand

  • Doughnut wall

  • Sweets cart

  • Face painting

  • Photographer

  • Tableware

  • Cakes + sweet treats

  • And more

Imagine the stress and strain involved in organising all that yourself. #nothanks

We were happy to leave it to the experts who insisted we sit back and let them do all the work.

Other than provide Miriam and her team with a glass of water, we weren’t expected or required to get involved in any way.

The whole party was, in a word, epic. So much so we were wishing we could knock 20+ years off our life and get involved.

Even if your kids have been lucky enough to visit a spa with you before, there’s nothing quite like having it at you/your mate’s home and being able to experience it with your closest friends.

Miriam and her team didn’t flag in energy once and somehow managed to keep a gang of 11 girls excited, quiet (ish), happy and engaged.

We can’t praise Miriam and her team enough – they were the consummate professionals, tidied up before they left and everything we could think of (and more) was done to make each and every guest feel special.

The Official Kids Party is based in and cover all of London plus nearby counties like Herts, Bucks etc.

If you live further out, a travel fee might be added to your quote so get in touch and include your postcode if you’re not London-based.

They can organise a party for as little as two guests and as many as 50+.
