By Jason Brandt|September 9, 2016|Business Services|

If you are an extremely creative person and you are looking to start a small business that can make you a little extra money in your free time, you might want to consider starting a party planning company for kids. Kids’ parties are a big business today as many parents throw very big birthday parties akin to weddings for their little ones and are looking for great party planners to put these events together for them. Many of the parents who throw these expensive parties for their children are people who work long hours and therefore they will not have the time to plan the parties themselves hence the reason they are looking to outsource. There is a lot of money involved with the party planning business as parents are spending thousands of dollars on these parties.

The different aspects of party planning

If you are interested in the party planning business, there are many different aspects that you can get involved with. As an example, you could consider having a business that takes care of only the decorations for the party. This would possibly include getting certain decor hand made for your new business and also importing unique decorations for each theme. You will need to hire the services of a freight forwarder to handle the import of themed decorations and other party items. Therefore you will need to include the cost of the freight company in the cost of the decorations when you are quoting your client.

There may be regulations in your country related to the import of certain items and the customs clearance procedure of certain items might be a difficult and time consuming process. The laws regarding import are different for every country and it is vital that you check these laws for your own country before you consider starting your new business.

Do it yourself projects

If you look closely at many of the decorations used at parties, even the decorations you plan to bring down from overseas, you will see that many of these items can be made by hand if the person making them is creative enough. You could consider making them yourself or even hiring someone else to make them for you. You might be surprised to find that hiring a person to work for you to make these things for you and help you with coordination is less expensive than import in some cases when you consider the costs involved with shipping and taxes. The important thing is to weigh the pros and cons before you start your business.
