Children in this age group are comfortable with rules, taking turns, and playing games, so Physical Activity parties such as a Bowling Party, Martial Arts Party, Gymnastics Party are perfect for this age. They are also developing coordination skills and will be excited to put them to use in games geared towards these skills.
Invite schoolmates and friends. Just remember that some children at this age prefer to only have children of their own sex at their parties so don’t be alarmed if this is the case.
Length of party
1 1/2 - 2 hours
Entertainment for age
At this age, entertainment that involves hands-on activities such as baking/decorating cakes, sand art, or painting are great. Kids feel a sense of accomplishment, especially when they are at a phase in life where they begin to develop and perfect specific individual skills.
Safety for age
Make sure to have all the phone numbers of the guests’ parents.
Marie Antoinette Party
The great thing about a Marie Antoinette Party is that it travels across all ages, enticing young and old alike with the assortment of color, sweets, and richness of the decor.
Make the centerpiece of your party a beautiful and elegant dessert table.
Go to a grocery store or bakery and buy a wide assortment of pastries and desserts. Since you have so much variety, don’t worry about buying one piece per guest, chances are people will not try every single dessert! Go the extra mile and write a banner over your dessert table that reads ‘Let them eat cake”
Purchase a few fake jewels or feathers to decorate the dessert table with or to scatter over the main eating table.
If you like to serve a tea party style meal don’t forget an assortment of teas and a few finger foods and tea sandwiches.
Find some frilly table cloths or use large doilies as placemats.
Have pretty fans laid out so guests can cool themselves just like the royals in Versailles. Double them up as favors.
We love these adorable cake pops which come in sets of 12 and are great on the table or as party favors.
If you have young children, serve their beverages in these Pink Cupcake Cups (8) so as to avoid any spills.
Games and Activities
Set up a hat making station for your guests. Buy a few simple straw hats and a lot of decorations such as fake jewels, feathers, ribbon and allow guests to make their very own fancy hat.
Have a Marie Antoinette photo op. Buy or rent a few period costumes for the guests to try on and then take photos and give them to your guests as a favor.
