An Eddie Catz Party Review

Organising a four-year-old's birthday party 
can almost feel like organising a wedding.

Minus the dress. Plus the mess. 

Sending the invites, handling RSVPs,
making food arrangements for children and adults,
finding a children's entertainer/face painter,
buying plastic bric-à-brac for the party bags,
making a cake, and the list goes on.

In brief, making sure everyone has fun and enough cake.
Which, of course, is easier said than done.

This is why we opted to let specialists handle all those details 
and have the four-year-old's birthday party at Eddie Catz Wimbledon

Booking a party there couldn't be any easier: 
everything can be done online. 
After choosing a suitable date and time slot, 
I had the option to pick a theme, add a birthday cake, 
choose food and refreshments for adults, 
and order party extras like balloons. 

I appreciated that at the time of the booking 
I only had to pay for a minimum of 10 guests; 
the final amount would be paid four days before the party 
when I would have the final number of guests. 

This allows for flexibility with the RSVPs 
and limits the number of no-shows.

On the day of the party, 
we simply had to show up with the cake and welcome our guests. 

Our party hosts {they were absolutely brilliant} took care of the rest: 
sorting out refreshments and special dietary requirements, 
serving yummy party food 
{the children had pizzas, chicken nuggets and chips, 
carrots, baby tomatoes and grapes}, 
and making sure the children had fun 
by dancing and interacting with them. 

The highlight of course was the visit of Eddie Catz himself, 
which sent the kids crazy and running to hug the big cat.

After running some more in the big soft play area, 
it was finally time for blowing the candles 
and handing over the party bags 
to 22 very excited {and exhausted} children. 

The party was a big success with parents and children alike, 
and the little ones had heaps of fun. 

The two hour duration is more than enough 
for the children to play and enjoy the facilities 
and for parents to have a chat 
and then go home with an exhausted child 
who is guarantee to nap all the excitement off.

In short, what we call a win-win situation!

In a nutshell: a stress-free way to host a child's birthday party 
while making sure everyone has fun. 

Eddie Catz party, from £13.50 per child, suitable for children up to age 10.

Discosure: Discount received. 
All views and wording my own. 
Many thanks to Eddie Catz Wimbledon for a fantastic party.
