this same question has been asked numerous times.

What research have you done?

Also I think an hour is way to long of a show. In my area most parties are 2-3hrs long. Assuming the show starts 15 minutes after the official start of the party and is around 40-45 minutes long. Which is what I suggest. Your portion will be done at the first hour mark. Following this the parents still (usually) serve lunch, open presents, and have cake (in that order).
If you are also offering balloon twisting, this should be done while another activity is taking place unless you include it as part of your show and it is as entertaining as the show is. Many magicians claim to be able to do a show and balloons and get out of the house around the hour mark. The only way to accomplish this is to have the balloons pre-made or to do simple one balloon animals.

I myself allow for the full party to take me up to 2 hrs. I of course charge an appropriate amount for this. In this time I do the 40-45 minute show. After the show the children go to the next activity. I clean up then make the birthday child's big balloon sculpture. After I present this all the other children get balloons.

P.S. I think palexb17 is pulling your leg with the amount of tricks he does. I do around 7 routines in my show and sometimes I think thats too many.

I have 25 tricks in my show, in which i do around 20 including the card tricks. I was just mentioning the material i have available for the show. But my 45 min to an hour show includes around 20 tricks overall and its not too heavy when you know how to manage the time.
