6 Alcohol. If available, then choose wisely and have a limited selection. Provide plenty of soft drinks, fun ?mocktails? cool cans and bottled water.
7 FOOD? Lots of it! Really simple things like pizza, mini fish and chips, mini burgers, bacon sandwiches later on, bowls of sweets to soak up any alcohol. Make sure you feed your kids well before they go out.
8 Accidents happen. Have cleaning equipment at the ready. Don?t turn it into a drama. Lots of water, strong coffee and a call to the parents to come and collect! Have a good first aid kit to hand.
9 Timings. Clearly state the party start and finish times on the invite. Close the bar half an hour before the deadline. DON?T turn up the lights it will just annoy everyone and finish in good time.
10 BE THERE! Have an adult presence at all times. Run the bar, wander around the property, not so much as to cramp their style but just enough that they know you?re there.
