The 'My Party App' is the party planning lifeline us parents have been waiting for

I need to download this!

Party planning, especially for my kids birthdays, always stresses me out.

Between trying to buy decorations and snacks for the day , collecting birthday cakes and trying to put together the perfect party goodie bag, it can be exhausting.

Luckily for us parents there is now an app to make the whole party planning process a lot easier and I'm so glad that I found it.

Childminders in the UK are increasingly being banned from using their smartphones on the job

The My Party App, launched recently on the App Store and Google Play Store, is a game changer for busy parents trying to plan and keep track of parties.

The innovative tech solution for party planning is easy-peasy to navigate, with a simple dashboard listing all the detail of your own events and parties you’re invited to.

Times, venues, themes and gifting are sorted, with the ability to accept or decline invitations and instant gifting via PayPal.


The technology also means users can search for party providers in their local community.

Whether play-centres, days-out, arts or sports parties, the app allows instant enquiries and booking, as well as detail on all sorts of party providers from bouncy castle hire, entertainers or face-painting to catering, cakes, decorations and goodie bags.

This is the part of the app that would be particularly handy for me as the trickiest part of planning my kids parties is finding the time to search for decorations and cakes.

kidsParents create and issue their own invitation and keep track of replies and planning checklists.

In-app messaging among guests is facilitated too, for car-sharing and gifting ideas.

Created by a parent for parents, Willo King from Kilternan in Dublin thought up the idea for My Party App a year ago. The busy mum of three knew there had to be an easier way to organise a child’s party, without losing out on the kudos of having the coolest new venue and entertainment!

Parents can even follow their favourite party suppliers on the app to get notifications of promotions and special loyalty offers.

With over 250 registered users and 70 party businesses already signed up to Ireland’s only dedicated interactive party app, stressed parents are no longer reluctant to get the party started!
