If you are planning a child’s birthday party then we understand how much there is to do, with the list getting longer and longer throughout the planning process. At Anything For Hire we aim to help the stressed party planners of the UK, giving them a suite of hire services in which they pick, choose and gain inspiration from.

With the sun shining down here at our Welsh HQ we thought we would write about bouncy castle hire, something that we at Anything For Hire are always keen to promote. Being a fun party prop for children and adults alike a bouncy castle in the garden or venue can take a party from mediocre to fabulous, allowing everyone to let their hair down and revel in silliness.

If you are considering hiring a bouncy castle this summer then we hope our top tips will help!

Go big or go home

The one bit of advice we are keen to share is about the size of your hired bouncy castle with the bigger the unit the more fun to be had. What we have found in the past is that smaller bouncy castles don’t encourage the adults and shyer of children to get involved, with bigger options encouraging everyone to let lose and join in on the fun!

Be safe

While parties are all about fun and games the truth is bouncy castles are not always safe, with children in particular getting over-excited at times. This is why each child must have a parent or guardian looking over them at all times, ensuring they are not causing any harm to themselves of others.

It is also advised to surround the bouncy castle with soft material, making sure that if a child were to fall off of the inflatable part they have something soft to break their fall.

Book early

Like anything party-orientated bouncy castle hire gets booked up quickly leading up to the party season. For this reason it is essential to register your interest and get a quote generated as early as possible, securing your booking and optimising on the event.
