The table is set using real china, glass and cutlery which is a sophisticated setting for older kids. Younger kids will feel just as stylish with a setting of gold coloured paper or plastic plates and contrasting cutlery. Style the room by hanging fairy lights in front of sheer red fabric, tie big glitzy bows and metallic coloured balloons to the back of chairs.


Kids Party Activities

Make sure you have small towels to put over the ‘Clients’ shoulders, just like at the hairdresser if you have a digital camera, you can take before and after shots.

If possible, set up a big mirror with a small desk and chair to create a salon look in you own home. Have lots of makeup, plenty of cotton balls and hairspray at hand. Make sure you dip the combs and hairbrushes in a disinfectant solutions in between each child.

If you have pnety of magazines for the kids to look at while they are waiting for their turn, this will help prevent any un-glamorous misbehaviour. After the girls have had their makeup and hair done, show them their “before” and “after” shots that they can take home. Kids are sure to have fun comparing their new glamorous looks.

There are party shops and discount stores galore that stock cheap packs of feather boas, glitter, hair accessories, faux pearls, bangles and other jewellery and paper tiaras or hats. These cheap accessories can also be added to their take-home treats.
