We spoke to the Wishgranter behind Lucy's incredible party. Here, Wishgranter Lucy Dowling gives her top 10 tips for organising a magical children's party that's stress-free and perfectly planned!

1. Speak to the child about the party they want. 

Parents often think they know what a child wants and they can end up being very disappointed if they plan it on their own without the child’s input.

2. Plan the party at a suitable location which isn’t miles away from home to all the people they will be inviting.

This will help with the logistics of the day for everyone.

3. Let people know about the party in plenty of time.

This stops the child being disappointed if many of their friends and their family’s already have other plans.
