Okay, so they might be a right royal royal pain sometimes, but no matter how many mud pies they've eaten or how many pairs of brand new trousers they've torn, they'll always be your little prince – especially on a special occasion like their birthday.

Make sure your mini HRH has birthday party games, decorations and treats that Prince George would be proud of, with these seven super-cute ideas for throwing a party with the Royal seal of approval...

1. A Bouncy Castle

A bouncy castle is an obvious choice, but your bog-standard inflatable just won't do. You need a party centrepiece that's an instant crowd-pleaser.

Take it to the next level by choosing a bouncy castle complete with turrets, a mini obstacle course and a slide, for hours of fun. 

If you’re super-organised, search for a bouncy-castle option that matches your theme, such as princes and princesses, dragons, pirates or even an indoor option for rainy-day parties.

2. A Sweets Bar

The snacks and sweets table is a crucial part of any party, so get creative with your table decorations and opt for confetti, party plates and party poppers

As pretty as they look, stay away from sweet jars and tins – and opt for pick 'n' mix style dispensers with plastic shovels. This is to avoid spills and sticky fingers. 

Take your snack game to the next level with some brilliantly clever gadgets such as a candy-floss maker. (This only requires candy flossing sugar, sticks or cones for serving, and a few minutes to heat up.) Once you’ve got the knack of creating and serving these fairground sweets, you’re on to a winner. 

Then, pick up up a jelly-bean dispenser and a popcorn maker for the finishing pieces to a perfect spread.

3. Face Painting

Face painting will be an essential part of the day, so be sure to pick up a step-by-step guide and get practising well in advance.  

If you’re not too confident in your artistic ability, be sure to buy some face-painting stencils and stick to easy-to-use face-paint crayons to keep things simple. 

A DIY Photo Booth is the perfect way to show off all your hard work. Decorate a corner of your party palace with cool bunting for a pretty backdrop – and pick up a polaroid camera to give the kids and parents a cute keepsake from the party.

4. A Den

Remember the joy of building a den using blankets and duvets as a child? These cosy nooks are a lovely edition to any party, and can be put together in under an hour with minimal effort. 

You can of course simply buy a children's tent, teepee or canopy that can be quickly and easily assembled, or you can go homemade with a little inspiration from the blog Project Nursery

For a cheap and simple option, pick up several metres of good quality, strong fabric that can be draped over a tree, beam or looped through a ceiling hook. Then, all you need to do is line the ground with blankets and pillows and you’re done! 

Or, for a cute party game, set out a trunk filled with all the blankets, pillows and materials, and let the kids create their own little fort that they can be proud of, too.

5. An Ice Cream Van

This ingenious idea keeps the children happy with plenty of ice cream, and gives you the chance to fulfil a childhood dream of running an ice-cream van. Win-win! 

The options are pretty pricey, but come on, what's (quite) a few thousands pounds when this is an idea that's definitely fit for a prince? It'll come complete with a Mr Whippy machine, fridges and freezers – and plenty of storage options perfect for sprinkles, sauces and toppings. It could even kick off a whole new career move for you.

6. A Treasure Hunt

The treasure hunt is where you can really let your imagination run wild – and be as creative as you like. Hide clues and riddles around your home or garden with little sweets or prizes along the way. 

To make your own treasure-hunt map, simply use plain paper and stain the pages with teabags to get the right colour before leaving to dry. Use a black Sharpie or even chalk to write your clues.

Lead the kids to a treasure chest toy box filled with chocolate coins, little trinkets and toys. This is a brilliant alternative to party bags as everyone goes home with a prize.

7. Outdoor Cinema

When the party is winding down – and the adults are clearly in need of some chill time – an outdoor cinema will round off your party perfectly. 

Inflatable or pull-down screens are so easy to set up. Keep the kids entertained by putting on Disney classic Frozen, so that they can sing 'Let It Go' to their hearts' content. 

Set out some bean bags and blankets to keep everyone warm and cosy and add some fairy lights or festoon lighting to give your garden a magical vibe for a toddler party they’ll never forget.
