There are some fantastic places in Saigon to celebrate your kids party. And yes, delegating your party is a great idea, because all will be taken care of and your house will not be taken over by little aliens. But if you’re feeling brave and plan on organizing the ultimate kids party at home, we are here to help! Actually, we love home parties, and we know you’re going to rock it! So let’s give you the scoop on the best party providers in Saigon.
Centerpiece: where to buy that fabulous birthday cake
Every birthday needs a cake, so good to start there. We are a fan of Sweet+Sour, who are experts in jaw-dropping birthdays cakes and they’re tasty too! A great alternative is Candy’s Cake Shoppe, where they make all sorts of festive and beautiful party bakes. And check out Greta’s cakes for yummy cupcakes!

Where to find the best decorations for your kids party at home
There’s nothing like a fantastic decorated room to get everyone in the party mood. Saigon has several decent party shops that are great if you’re organizing a kids party at home. If you’re in the mood for bunting flags and festive gadgets online, surf to Party Vui (formerly known as Party Inc). It has a website in English and a shop in D1. In district 2, the Partyshop has all you need; a great selection of balloons, pompoms and every other party prop for that unicorn or pirate party.
Must have: great entertainment for hire in Saigon
The ultimate kids party at home needs the ultimate entertainment! Lollipop Face Painting can transform kids into fairies, tigers and many more alter egos. For the epic Saigon bubble man show, contact Balloon Magic Bubble. He can also provide any balloon decoration you wish. If you’re looking for bouncy castles, message Mr. Bouncy, where you can rent all sorts of bouncy party supply. Good to shake off some of that energy! For your older (8+) birthday boy or -girl, it’s fun to rent water balls, which you can put in the swimming pool. Also cool, certainly for bigger parties; set up a photo booth. Photography will organize it all for you and can even make you a custom made frame or backdrop. A big hit at our party last year!
Everyone likes a DIY party!
But if you want to go a bit more low profile, consider organizing some kids party games yourself. Crafting, decorating your own cupcake or old school games like Musical Chairs are easily set up and can be adjusted according to the age of the party people. And kids love them! Check out this DIY Party Ideas post for inspiration.
Oh goody! Goodie bags!
Your ultimate kids party at home has come to an end. It’s finally time to send them off and put your feet up. But first the goodie bags. For the bag itself, go to Uncle Bills. Fill them up up with some gadgets from KEPI or one of the (online) party shops we mentioned. There are also great alternatives for party bags, like personalized journals or treasure tins. Or do what we do and get a piñata at pinata Vietnam. Your party animals can beat it around until it breaks and put the sweets in their goodie bags afterward. And let’s face it, there is nothing like a rain of candy to end the perfect party on a high!

63 Thao Dien St., D2
Probably one of the most visited shops in Saigon by expat children, Kepi. Why? It’s a mirage for children wanting the newest toys, slime, original board games, swimming pool toys and nerf guns… to name a few. The big shop is on Thao Dien Street, but the smaller one inside the Snap Café premises has proven to be just as irresistible.
