Kids’ birthdays have gotten a glam upgrade since I was a child. Not that they’re too far off the original classics – at least, for some – but they add a wonderful modern and exciting take on staples like balloons, yummy snacks and entertainment options. Why not give the children an absolutely epic experience, with amazing photos to boot that they can look back on when they’re older? Check out our list of NYC’s Hottest Trends in Kids’ Party Entertainment:

Crazy Balloon Installations

Balloons on a string aren’t going to elicit as much excited squeals as a themed balloon sculpture in the likeness of your child’s favorite character. From Minnie Mouse shaped installations to oversized inflatable flamingos, professional balloon decor specialists can create out of this world exhibitions that will have your jaw on the floor. Check out a few of New York’s balloon shops here.

How often do you get to go home from a party with a drawing of yourself? Hiring a caricaturist for your child’s party is one of NYC’s Hottest Trends in Kids’ Party Entertainment now. Good caricaturists are hard to come by these days but it’s a classic form of art that’s making a comeback! We found a few here that come to your home or party venue and travel to various parts of the city.

Hawaiian Hula Dancers

Imagine a Moana themed party with actual Hawaiian Hula Dancers! Scarlet Entertainment in New York hires out high energy hula dancers for a trip to Tahiti. Their service is customizable to your event and can be curated to any size crowd. And if you’re lucky, they’ll throw in some flames too! Perfect to get the kids dancing. Other companies you can inquire with include:

Paradise Island
Hawaiian Luau Show
Esteem Entertainment

Kiddie Mocktails

Because kids sometimes need a mocktail after a hard day at school. Mocktails have acquired an unexpected fan in children, and having these at your event will definitely make you stand out. If you’re heading out for your child’s event, try one of these restaurants in New York with delicious mocktails for kids. For bartenders that come to you and create beautiful mocktail stations at your event, check out the Brooklyn Seltzer Boys.

Kiddie Boho Picnics

Dream and Party and Lets Picnic are two of my favorite go-tos for adorable and chic kiddie picnic parties. They have A-Mazing luxury picnic and tablescape options for an unforgettable outdoor birthday party experience. Included in your picnic price, besides the pillows and table setting, are also non-alcoholic beverages and delicious charcuterie boards, finger sandwiches and sweet treats. You can also add on a photo session, games, fairy lights, and a flower bar.

How many kids should be at a birthday party?

That’s completely up to you. It may take fewer kids than you think to make a fun atmosphere. 8-15 children is a great amount. More than 20 might make you exhausted. Unless you hire Yombu’s professionals to keep them entertained!
