Protect Yourself From The Credit Crunch .......

We have researched and found that when times are hard hiring a bouncy castle to celebrate a birthday or any other special occasion, is still cheaper for people than the average party at an indoor play center or a trip to the cinemas or local kart track!

The results showed that the party that was the cheapest was Party A

PARTY A - Garden Party with a Bouncy Castle

A Garden Party with a Bouncy Castle hired in. The costs were as follows.

1 x bouncy castle hire & free printable party invitations & Thank you letters = £60.00.

A small finger buffet was supplied as purchased from a well-known supermarket, as follows:-

  • 50 Pack of sausages rolls = £1.49
  • 2 White loafs = 90p
  • Jar of Strawberry Jam = 39p
  • Pack of cheese = £1.30

  • Value Juice = 54p

Some quotes from parents on the Party;
"Fun for the whole family to join in"
"Cheaper than any other type of kids party"
"Great for getting the kids bouncing around and exercising - they didn't have to sit still for any length of time"
"Very good that hall hire is cheap and if the forecast was poor we could have the party indoors for just a bit more money"

Some quotes from parents on the Party:
"Would have preferred it if the party wasn't so noisy, it was very busy in there "
