Finley’s 5th Birthday with ParentVille Parties
Gosh, I cannot believe my little boy is turning five this week. It only feels like yesterday that I was cradling a tiny newborn and wondering how we would get through the next twenty-four hours let alone the next five years.
Fast forward almost five years and I am organising Finley’s fifth birthday party for him and twenty-five of his school friends. How hard can it be?
In the past, Finley’s birthday parties were hosted at a local soft play venue who took care of the food, the party bags and the entertainment. While this felt like the easy option, we wanted to create something truly magical for him. After an initial attempt to source a good entertainer. I fell at the first hurdle and couldn’t find anyone local or good.The pressure was on. Finley wanted a superhero party and the local Father Christmas impersonator was not going to cut the mustard. So, we enlisted the help of ParentVille Parties.
ParentVille Parties is the UK’s first marketplace for Children’s Parties. It is perfect for busy parents who don’t have time to trawl the internet entertainers, cake makers, venues, party planners and various other party suppliers.
The team at ParentVille Parties handpick everything by invitation and only feature reputable party providers. You can be assured that you are investing in great quality party suppliers and products for your child’s party. There are also gifting options that can be shipped UK wide. Product lines also include a ‘free-from’ section, styling services and lots more. There are currently over 200 party listings available (and more being added) so the choices feel endless.
The prices across the marketplace suit all budgets – big and small. It really feels like there is something for everyone
What I love the most, is the fact you could literally organise your children’s party in your lunch hour with no effort or fuss. There is a ‘Chat With Me’ button which gives you the chance to talk to your preferred supplier directly, which is really reassuring if it is your first time using ParentVille Parties. There are so many pretty things within the marketplace, that you’ll want to give yourself longer than an hour to immerse yourself with everything. My basket is already filled with party ideas and supplies for Olivia’s birthday in June….
Back to Finley’s party….
I found an amazing party entertaining company who were able to accommodate our Superhero theme. They were super easy to book and were happy to accommodate our early 9am start in Clapham. We only required them for an hour and I was reassured that that was perfect timing. Above anything, they were reasonably priced and came with complete professionalism.
Fast forward to the day of the party and Entertainers Tom and Eloise arrived dressed as Agent Alpha and Dr Delta. They arrived 15 minutes early to set up, gave me a brief running order (which sounded amazing) and then they met the birthday boy. They were warm and super friendly, and captivated the attention of the children before they started. I couldn’t wait for them to begin.
Within minutes they set up and the music was on (they brought their own music, so we didn’t need to worry about supplying a sound system). Tom and Eloise explained to the children they were about to undergo Superhero training which included decorating their superhero masks, Superhero Games, a laser beam assault course (which required the help of the parents), Dr Delta’s experiment lab and an evil laughter competition. The children loved them as did the parents. Tom and Eloise were really engaging and didn’t stop for a minute. They had 100% of the children’s attention which was just amazing especially as we had a few younger siblings in attendance. I was so impressed with them. We have attended other children’s parties and Tom and Eloise were the best children’s entertainers we had ever seen. We are so pleased to have found them via Parentville Parties and will definitely book them again in the future.
ParentVille Parties are the perfect go to place for everything party related. It is super easy to use and made organising a party from scratch effortless.
