Belle's Beauty Parlour

Belles beauty parlour

We saw this amazing idea at a party we recently attended, and thought it was too good not to share with all of you! The mum had created this lovely sign for Belle's Beauty Parlour, and beside it, put various bits of dress up jewellery for the children to wear during the party! You could take this one step further and add some fairy dust, or bring in another helpful mum to do some mini makeovers for the children!

Fairy or Princess Party?

We have a lot of customers who come to us with questions about Fairy or Princess parties, and even more customers who's daughter's cannot decide which their favourite character is. We say, why not think about a Fairy Princess party? The two themes go hand in hand and this can really help you when theming gifts, table decorations, props, and helps us with our games. Stories like Sleeping Beauty feature both a princess and fairies, so you can have the flexibility to let the guests decide how they'd like to dress on the day.

Table Gifts

We've seen lots of brilliant ideas at parties we've been to over the years. One of my favourites is seeing Table Gifts set out for the children to open/wear/play with during the party tea.

The mum had decided to put out table gifts instead of filling a party bag with lots of smaller things. Each child had either a Tiara (girls) or a Tie (boys) which they could wear at the table, and take home at the end of the party.

It was a lovely idea and another reason for the children to get excited about tea time!

Cake or Cupcakes?

Ever felt a little overwhelmed at the thought of having to make one big perfect birthday cake? We have too! And yes, you can buy it, but it's so much fun preparing with a little help from your very own little princess. At some of the more recent parties we've attended, we've noticed a new trend where mums have made lots of little cupcakes, and arranged them on a cake board as a substitute for having one big cake.

We think this is a great idea because there's no need for knives, the kids can get stuck into eating the cake quickly, and... well it looks pretty too!

Butterfly Craft Idea

Butterflies.jpg

Taking inspiration from the beautiful Cinderella dress (2015 film), why not set up a craft activity for your little ones where they design their own butterflies!

You can get creative with glitter, diamante, stickers, paint, crayons and anything else that takes your fancy. Make beautiful bunting by hanging the butterflies on a long ribbon, or let everyone take theirs home at the end of the party!

Frozen Icicle Balloons

Just found this image on pinterest! We often recommend you decorate your party room with helium filled balloons and long trailing ribbons, but why not add icicles to the end of the ribbons to create a snowstorm for the children to play in?! You could even cut out the icicles from some pretty white paper with your little one, as an activity to do whilst getting ready for their party.

Magic Firefly Jars

All you need to create these fantastic looking night lanterns is some jars, glow stick and diamond glitter. The process is as easy as it can be – open the jar, shake the content of the glow stick into it and add the diamond glitter. Close the top of the jar with a lid and shake it well. Kids will be delighted by the light of the “Fireflies” in the jars! This is a perfect idea for parties in the winter when it gets dark early, and could be great for fairy themed parties or even given away with party bags at the end!

Chocolate Roses

This is a great alternative to flowers, for anyone you know who is chocolate crazy! All you need is a few lollipop sticks, the recipient's favourite choccies (round ones look better), and some netting/tissue paper to wrap it. You can tie the bouquet up with a ribbon or string also looks very sweet.
