If your kids are over the age of 10, it may be wise to have them party latre in the day so as not to clash with sporting fixtures and the like. It also allows you to sleep in on the party day so you can wake up refrreshed!
Lots of kids above 10 or more yeards of age will have regular commitments in the form of sporting games and the like and may not want to defer them in order to come to a party. But if you have a good line-up of activities and entertainment, most people will answer your invites in the positive and so show up.
If you are doing an event or party for little kids we advise to have them in early in the day, as toddlers and the like are often ratty after lunch and many may want to sleep. Even if your lids are above the age of daytime naps, remember, that younger siblings may still need the daytime nap.
Smal kids are also much easier to deal with earlier in the day and before they either collapse in exhaustion or worse still need to be pepped up with sugar laden foods.

Frequently Asked Questions
What the heck, let's party!
When time comes to party, it means time to plan to get it right the first time. But is it really what you want. Is the alternative a cheap night out at the movies and without the hassle of entertaining others. But if you are oranising a party or event, then ask yourself, do you really want the hassle of inviting a load of rampant children or adults to your home or venue. Perhaps it may be easier to simply take your closest friends to a venue elsewhere in Melbourne, such as a restuarant, movies or pub. It may cheaper and less hassle as an option. If you have children, maybe taking a few to the movies is a cheaper and easier option than a full-blown children's birthday party, or of course use the baby bonus, your colour TV or home entertainment theatre instead?
In the house or elsewhere?
If money is no object you have a choice. In fact if you go out, you can even hire a limo! But the harsh reality is that expense means most people in Melbourne do their party entertainment in the home, rather than hiring a place. Notwithstanding this, there are heaps venues available for hire for party shos, disco parties or functions and events in most parts of a big city. These include, function centres, kinders on weekends, scout halls, rooms in hotels, council run halls and a lot more. These places are better geared up for dealing with not so nice people.
While in years gone by, the concept of paying a person to enterian children was a ridulous thought, this is now not the case. People who will entertain children for a price are now cheaper and more widely available. It may be worth giving one of them a go.
Stop stressing. Chances are all will go well. And if the worst comes to worse and the whole party thing is a debacle, there is still no need to panic. After all it will only be for a few hours. After that you can either go to sleep or try to party again. Either way, all we can suggest is that you try to enjoy yourself!
