Having a theme makes a birthday party all the more fun. It also makes it easier for us to think of ways to add some extra excitement to the day.
If there’s one thing kids love, it’s the magic of Harry Potter. Most kids will have this in common, especially between the tween and teen years. From the invitations to the food, the Harry Potter theme can resonate in every aspect of the birthday party and, believe it or not, it makes the planning easier when we have something to centre ideas around.
Once the word gets out that your child is having one of the best parties of the year, numbers will increase before your eyes. You might begin to wonder how you will host such a large number. You might even start putting glassware and valuables into a lockable cupboard!
But there’s no need this year. Simply hire a double-decker bus with Party Bus. With a whopping 75 seats, there is ample space for everyone to enjoy the party and the novelty of the two-storey coach never wears off, no matter how old you are!
Harry Potter makes the ultimate party theme
Any Harry Potter fan would be excited to attend a Harry Potter themed party. And if you’re not a Harry Potter fan, you’ll soon want to be among the craze once the party’s over.
The spectacle of wizardry can come alive in your child’s next birthday party. Let your imagination run wild and enter the world of Harry Potter. Here are some ideas to get the ball rolling:
Food – it’s one of the most important parts to any birthday party. This is your opportunity to ditch the chips and cherios for chocolate frogs, witch’s broomsticks, edible wands, and butterbeer.
Costumes – turn those muggles into magical wizards by making it a dress-up party. Just imagine a bus full of Ron Weasleys, Professor Snapes, Malfoys and Dumbledores. You never know, there might be a Dobby or two in the mix. If you want your birthday boy of girl to stand out, it might pay to reserve the role of Harry or Hermione.
Games – begin the party with a Hogwarts sorting ceremony and split your group into four teams; Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin. Now you have the teams sorted for a trivia quiz, a game of Who am I?, or a magic trick contest.
Avoid the hassle of cleaning up
With a Harry Potter theme and a double-decker bus, nothing can go wrong. You can forget about spending hours arranging your house to accommodate the group of party-goers this year.
Birthday parties are exciting, but it can also be exhausting to decorate and rearrange things only to clean it all up after the party.
Keep it simple this year and pop your guests on a double-decker bus.
How nice it will be to know you will return home to a clean house once the day is done.
A great venue for a Harry Potter party
Choosing the double-decker bus at Party Bus is an easy and exciting way to host a birthday party. Make it even more exciting by incorporating the wonderful world of Hogwarts aboard the bus.
Music is an important part to any party so bring your CDs or iPod and make use of the fantastic sound system.
Ride in the comfort of soft seats and if your guests get a little too excited, cool them off under the air conditioning.
There’s plenty of room for everyone
Sometimes it’s hard to know when to stop when it comes to the guest list. The grandparents, aunties, uncles and cousins alone chew into the numbers and you’ve got school friends and family friends to consider as well.
Booking a double-decker lets you invite as many as 75 people along to your child’s birthday. There will be no need to turn anyone away this year.
Make use of the two levels and have the adults on one floor and the kids on the other. Kids can be as rowdy as they like upstairs while the parents and other adults can enjoy the comfortable ride down below.
Your child’s birthday will be one to remember this year with a Harry Potter party theme on a double-decker bus. Book today with Party Bus and watch the excitement unfold as your guests step aboard such a unique venue.
