I would think a children's magician type entertainer might work for that age child, with simple magic tricks, balloons/bubbles, simple comedy etc.

In terms of food, I would usually do sandwiches (simple fillings like cheese, ham), crisps, cucumber/carrot sticks, dips, fruit (strawberries/grapes/blueberries maybe), sausage rolls, and so on.

Thank you for replying AssassinatedBeauty there will be around 10 children between the ages 1 to 5. Rest will be adults and teens.

Are you having lots of one year old baby guests? Or your family/friends with children of a range of ages? It's hard to advise on ideas for an entertainer without knowing what the audience is going to be.

I am based in Leicester. It's my daughter's first birthday soon. We want to host a big party to celebrate as its a really big deal for us and our families.

I am stuck on entertainment ideas and am looking to hire someone please can anyone share any suggestions?

I also need some advice on what type of food to serve at the party.

Never attended a child's birthday party before am totally clueless.
