He then decided that his party had to be mickey mouse themed, and there was no swaying from this.
I decided to use my Party in a box range (http://www.scarlettparties.co.uk/box) with a few added extras.
I didn't go for full theming for the party, as the majority of the children were 3 and 4, and we were also having a children's magician to come and entertain the kids, so the theming was left just to the table, and party bags.
The overall cost of the party with the room hire and the magician, theming and food was £220, the party catered for 20 children, meaning the overall cost per child was £11. The party in a box is £40 for 10 children, so works out at £4 per head.
