Who doesn't love a party!

Planning any event can be stressful, especially when it's taking place in your own home.
Children's birthday parties are no exception – in fact, there's even more to think about because not only will you have a bunch of sugar-fuelled kids tearing up your backyard, you'll also need to host their parents!
But sometimes we get so caught up in the stress of the planning we lose sight of the fact that celebrating another year around the sun is a wonderful opportunity to spend time with family and live in the moment – these milestones only happen once, after all.
How, then, can you maximise your time with loved ones while still creating an epic day for everyone?
Turns out, it's not as hard as you think – if you let a few clever pieces of technology come to the party too.

Movie time!

If the weather packs up keep the kids entertained by setting up Chromecast Ultra and having some movies at the ready. With more reliable connectivity and ultra-fast streaming speeds, anyone with an iPhone, iPad, Android, Mac, PC or Chromebooks can take control of the viewing to keep the peace.
Don't forget to capture lasting memories of your child's big day! Watch for instructions on how to use the Canon EOS M50 camera:

Clearing the air

With allergy season in full swing, set up the Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link purifier in the main entertaining space to remove dust and debris and help keep watery eyes and itchy noses at bay. Turn it to auto early on in the day to ensure the cleanest air possible when your guests arrive.
What's a party without music - watch here to see how to use the Sonos One speaker:

Connect four

Whether your guests are taking advantage of the outdoors or seeking shelter from the elements inside, you'll want WiFi capabilities that keep you connected to music, movies and entertainment from all four corners of the home. The Netgear Orbi WiFi Satellite expands your coverage by up to 2000 square feet so you can party the day away without the technical difficulties.
Everyone will want a slice of the birthday cake! You can make one with ease using the Kenwood kMix mixer:

Peace of mind

Keep your mind at ease while the little ones rest with the Uniden baby monitor. This smart device has high-quality video resolution, a built-in moonlight soother, a base plate SOS button and can even detect soiled nappies and give you feeding alerts.
