Children's birthday parties

A child's birthday party can be a wonderful, fun and memorable occasion, but it can also become a nightmare if you jump into it unprepared.

General recommendations
  • Prepare the house by taking into account the age of the children and the rooms they will have access to.
  • Hide all breakable objects and close the doors of off limits rooms.
  • Enlist the help of at least one other adult. If something goes wrong or someone gets hurt, you'll be happy not to be alone.
  • Even if it is your child's party, you can still have fun!
