Inspired Idea: A Milkshake Making Party
Sometimes though, for more adventurous or older children, you need to come up with something a little different. It might be a new twist on a classic theme, or it could be a totally new approach to partying altogether; either way, it needs to be entertaining and memorable.
You see, as well as creating the right atmosphere, courtesy of quality decorations, good music and even better company, you need to give party-goers something to do. Youngsters are particularly animated, and they need to be offered activities that keep their hands and minds occupied.
New experiences and new skills are usually the safest bet. You don’t have to teach them circus tricks or take them skydiving though; turning a simple idea into an afternoon of entertainment will work just as well.
What’s more, combining this new experience with child-friendly things like tasty food and plenty of mess will help to seal the deal. One such way you can cover all of these bases is with a Milkshake Making Party.
Along the same lines as an adult Cocktail Making Party, this Milkshake-based alternative is age-appropriate and hours of fun. You can let the little ones (and the big ones supervising!) be as adventurous as they like when it comes to ingredient selection and flavour combinations; just be mindful of any intolerances and allergies.

Pretty Bottles and Paper Straws
If you are throwing a Milkshake Making party, remember that presentation is everything. Milkshake really does taste better from a vintage milk bottle, when slurped through a pretty paper straw. Not only will this combination give a more authentic taste, but it will also create a more authentic atmosphere. All the fun of a 1950s shake shack, with an enjoyable DIY twist.
Trays of Treats
What goes well with milk? Cookies. Cookies of every kind go perfectly with milkshake too, so it is vital that you have trays and trays of cookie options. Of course, on the off-chance that you have healthy party-goers, you will need some healthy treats too, like strawberries and other sweet and fruity bites. In addition to trays of goodies, you can use our disposable party plates for your milkshake ingredients; chopped fruits, broken up chocolate bars, and who knows what else.

Jazz it Up
Just like adults would dress up their cocktail creations, kids will love jazzing up their milkshake masterpieces. Pretty bamboo picks impaling cookie dough or fruit chunks, coloured biodegradable ribbons tied around the bottlenecks, seeded paper tags listing names and ingredients, or paper napkins will all help to set the scene and add to the experience.
Of course, when planning a Milkshake Making Party, you need to take a number of things into account. As well as being careful with allergy-inducing ingredients and ensuring you provide healthy but tasty ingredient options, you also need to consider how the children in attendance will react to the activity and whether there will be enough adult supervision.
Once you have addressed all of the practical aspects though, you can have fun perusing our website and getting creative in the name of decoration and authenticity. Have fun!
