Review

“This enthusiastic book provides practical advice on the possible pitfalls of event planning, particularly when dealing with children and their parents. It reads like a conversation with an experienced friend.” —Library Journal

From the Back Cover

Make a kid’s big day your business!
From modest festivities that parents typically shell out $200–400 for, to $100,000 first-birthday bashes as reported in the New York Times, the twenty-first century is rapidly becoming the gilded age of children’s birthday parties. Planning these events has become a profession in itself. The children’s birthday party business is booming—and it offers an ideal entrée for those hoping to start a home-based business with low financial risk. This book shows you how.
Combining straightforward language with a host of essential organizing tips, useful checklists, and easy-to-follow worksheets, Amy Jean Peters takes you through every aspect of setting up and running a thriving home-based children’s birthday party business. Whether you’re just starting to explore your options for a home-based business or are used to being your own boss, this guide helps you channel your creativity and shows you how to get your business off the ground. You’ll be the one parents turn to!

Great book for new and established children event planners! Everything you need to know about the business! By far, best book I have read on the business - very detailed - covers everything you need to know.

Was looking for more meqat concerning pricing, revenue, etc., but there is very little of that here. Mostly just standard stuff that is relevant to any business plus descriptions of what got the author into it. Not too useful.

This book is absolutely wonderful! I believe that this book provides such helpful and wonderful information about starting my own home-based Children's Birthday Party Business! The information in this book is the MOST helpful information that I have come across about this subject. I also appreciate the fact that the author refers to children as "children" rather than "kids."

Not that great of a book if your seriously looking to start a childrens party planning business. More for a stay at home mom that wants to do parties for fun on the side, not very impressed.

The book is not what I expected. I was looking for a book with more guidance on suppliers which this book eluded to have. But it does not.

I have VERY limited experience with running a business and I still found this book to be pretty "common knowledge" stuff. Its is very organized and gives a literal step by step guide to starting a new business, so I'm sure someone out there would glean some knowledge from it, but for me it didn't tell me anything new.
