Organising a birthday party for your wee one can seem daunting, especially if you need to cater for children of different age groups. I went to celebrate my niece's third birthday last week at The Hive Play and Party Centre, a new soft play in Bathgate, West Lothian. The venue was a hit and the birthday girl was treated like a VIP when she had her name called out over the loud speaker which she was thrilled about.

The guests varied in age, from small babies (including my six month old) to children aged six. The older children had a great time in the sports area which had a basketball hoop and football. My baby enjoyed playing with some toys and had tummy time on the rug area. The toddlers had two levels to explore, including a very cool wall piano, slides and buzzing bees to ride.

Being new it's very clean and the decor is really bright with plenty of tables and chairs for parents to relax, there's even free Wi -Fi. The children had a good selection of party food, and the birthday girl received a free soft play visit as part of the package.

As far as parties go (and I've been to quite a few in my time) this venue rates high. The parents get to relax and enjoy a coffee and don't have to clean up the mess after, a win win in my book.

There are plenty more ideas for party venues in the latest edition of Edinburgh for Under Fives.

Until next time,
