Please arrive for 11am and the fun will come to an end approx. 12.30pm!

Summer is here! Family Games are on!

With the good weather steadily making its way to the UK we are seeing more and more summer parties and events being held outside. We love this time of year as the kids get a chance to have their dream party outdoors and enjoy playing in the fresh air with their friends. We have hosted loads of parties based on the Olympic Games, Festivals, specific games like football and athletics. In fact, if your child is into a specific sport i am sure we will be able to help! Why not try and make your child's summer party an Olympic Themed Party or a Family Games party! All the kids are asked to come to the party in trainers and sportswear or a t-shirt and shorts, they are split into groups, teams and play some games on their own and take part in not only relay races, obstacle courses and challenges but also the one and only water bucket challenge! We can pop a twist on the party so maybe an Army Sports Party or Pirate Sports Day...you come up with the idea and we will make it come to life. So if this sounds right up your street then get in touch and book something in. Parties with one party host have a maximum number of 25 - 30 kids. If you have more children then this then we recommend we send a second entertainer!

The Magical Unicorn & Trolls Disco Party!

What a great start to the Easter Holidays! Our Magical Trolls and Unicorn Free Easter Party which took place last week in Ascot was a HUGE success! We cannot thank you enough to everyone who came and joined in the magical, glittery fun!
Everybody loves something for free; and that's why at CTP Party, our school holiday events will always stay that way. Why? well because we want you to see what we can do and why we think CTP Party are the best! Even more exciting, is that it was our FIRST party in our brand new area (the Ascot, Suninghill, Windsor area) which are all in Berkshire/ Buckinghamshire. CTP Party have recently expanded into Berkshire and Buckinghamshire areas, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to spead some pre-Easter excitement in Ascot. Princess Poppy (Trolls), Fluttershy and Twilight Sparkle (My Little Pony) definitely were popular with our party guests. Cordes Hall in Ascot was full of smiles and laughter, The kids especially liked our exciting bubble disco or everyone's favourite, the unircorn limbo! In fact, one of our mini fans from Sunninghill said it was the best party he'd ever been to! Now that is what we call a success. Congratulations as well to the young lady from Windsor whose amazing unicorn costume won her a FREE party of her own! If you have any amazing pictures from our event you would like to share simply upload to facebook and tag CTP PARTY in the post for a chance to win a 1 hr FREE party! Don't forget to look out for our next School Holidays Party!

Space Parties…why they are taking over the atmosphere?

Here at CTP Party, we love the fact that although Space has always been a popular theme for parties this year Space Themed Parties seems to have literally....Taken Off!!

Space Parties are pretty cool and here is why...whether a child is 3, 8 or 10 years old, they know that when they look up at night there are stars out there and planets and what's even more inviting to them is that one day...they may just get to go up there and take a look for themselves!

This idea of being able to walk on the moon or fly between the stars is fascinating and whether it is due to a lot of Space Films coming out over the past few years we support kids getting into SPACE!

The best Space Parties: 

We had a client from last weekend tell us that her son was very into Space, Planets, Aliens...you name it! We planned the party accordingly and sent along one of our team as a Space Hero and the kids loved every second of it!

Here is what she had to say about her party in Liss, Hampshire.

"Dear CTP!
Thank you so much for making my son have a fantastic 5th space party! Everybody really enjoyed themselves.
A huge thank you to Susie. I'm very sorry if I forgot to thank her on Saturday, but we had 23 very hungry children demanding food to deal with.
Thanks again!" Mrs Sutherland, Space Party, March 2017
You dont have to be from another planet to know 23 hungry 5 year olds are hard to cope with so we are very glad that the kids had a great time! If you were at the party in Liss in Hampshire then let us know. We would love to hear from you!

So what if your child wants a Space Party this year:

Space Parties for Kids CTP Party

Spiderman Superhero Parties…and why we love them

Superhero Parties

We have always been massive fans of Superheroes here at CTP! Whether it is the Marvel/Disney kind or just kids being "Super" for the day and having extra powers...we think that every child and adult at one point in their life has imagined they are a superhero flying across the sky on a mission. What we are seeing especially towards the end of 2016 and now into 2017 is that girls too are getting superhero obsessed. Before, when we hosted a Superhero Party a lot of the girls would come as Princesses and there is nothing wrong with that...everyone loves a Superhero & Superhero Princess Party however to see so many little girls as Superheroes at one party made our day! We run Superhero Parties for children ages 3 and up.We can host them as a male/female or duo (as seen in the pictures) we can run parties for up to 30 kids with 1 entertainer. We include all the games, activities, prizes, certificates and a birthday gift for the birthday child. A lovely client of ours from Oxford who recently had a party with us (February 2017) sent in some photos along with some feedback of her party and we thought we would share it. Thanks to Hannah and the team who run the CTP Party Berkshire office for sending these through.

"Im sad it's all over!! Many thanks again for making a little boy dream come true!"

Siblings at a party!

Siblings at a party
We have come to the conclusion there are 3 types of sibling at a birthday party;
1 – The Helper. This child wants to help as much as possible, whether its showing the children dance moves, or helping serve the sweeties, hand out prizes and stickers, they really help the entertainer or their sibling in any of the games we play.
2 – The Wisher. This child wishes it was their party (this was me!) they cannot let their bro or sis have all the attention and will do all they can to be involved or first to answer every question the entertainer asks!Or steal the lime light with their super cute dance moves!
3 – The Over the Topper. This child is undecided as to which category they fall in, they are in their own little limbo, because although they wish it was their birthday they also want to help – which means the combo of both is toooooo much, and they practically explode with a cross of confusion and excitement! “Helping” open presents, being a prime example.
So, if your little birthday king or queen, has a brother or sister, or more! Which category might they fall into?
We encourage little brothers/sister or older "helpers' to get involved but remember little ones can crawl into the path of 30 speedy 5 year olds and be a danger to everyone in the room including themselves! We recommend a maximum of 25 - 30 kids for 1 entertainer so if your invite includes all the siblings just bear this in mind and maybe get a helper along to look after the little ones!

CTP Party reflect on January 2017 & Look at the new trends Unicorns & Trolls

We cannot believe its 2017....and now we are in February...already! Where is the time going? January happened to be one of our busiest months for booking parties. Believe it or not after the long break at Christmas we get straight back into party mode and the phone constantly rings for last minute parties and party bookings up to April! Parents panic that they have missed the boat and unfortunately some do but we try and fit everyone in. Reflecting on January 2017 for us in terms of parties is hard to do as it just goes by in a flash. We book on average 20 parties a week (with the busiest week being 31) and parents ask us what is the next big thing going to be? What can we do that is different to everyone else at School or NCT club. Well.....we know its crazy but we think 2017 is  all about TROLLS & UNICORNS! We have had a few parents ring us for a Troll Princess party, a Unicorn Disco and even a Mermaid/Unicorn/Puppy Craft party. We are just delighted as we love a new theme and we know that although we have to source new costumes, new party material and make up a whole new programme that the best thing is the kids faces at the party as it is something they have never seen or even dreamed of. Our team are excited to do something new and they love a challenge so next time your little one asks for a random theme which isn't quite what you thought they would want just ask us and I am sure we will be able to accommodate and for all those trolls and Unicorn obsessed kids....we have something that might be right up your street! To book your children's birthday party just call us on 01252 471070 or get in touch on [email protected] . We have offices in Fleet, Bristol, Windsor & Reading so will be happy to hear from you if you are local to one of these areas and if your not local, give us a call and we might be able to travel to you! All our team are trained by us and are passionate about parties! They are all young drama students or even business students with a keen eye for creativity and acting! They love being centre of attention and are adored by kids! We specialise in children's parties aged from 3 - 8 years old however we have run parties for kids of up to 12 years before! We have loads of themes available for your Kids Birthday Parties including but not limited to; Princess, Fairy, Pirate, Mermaid, Disco, Craft, Superhero and many more but we love to think outside the box so any challenges...send them our way! Unicorn Birthday Party  

The Feeder Birthday Party Mums…..We LOVE you!

Cake Birthday
As an entertainer, you meet lots of different people, and you do quite often get a small insight as to what their family life is like....which is quite nice really. The children at the parties we host are all very lucky, they always seem to have lots of friends there, a big decorated room and a huge pile of presents waiting for them to open ….and in these lovely parties, there is always a common denominator.....FOOD!

Food at a Party!

Now obviously all mums, dads and carers are different – however there is one type of mum that us entertainers (usually) LOVE, and that, is the FEEDER MUM! The mum that will not let you leave until they have seen you eat a plate of party food, or have a drink, or even wrapped up a piece of birthday cake for your journey home. I was once give a huge carton of apple juice, 5 macaroons and the biggest slice of cake I had ever seen. And, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
We salute you feeder mums, as you make our day even better than it already was!
Thank you!

CTP Party visit Disneyland Paris in search of some magic

Hannah CTP Party at Disneyland
Once upon a time there was a girl so in love with Disney that she decided to take her  family to Disneyland Paris for Christmas where dreams really do come true. She knew everything there was to know about the Disney characters...and so she should, she dresses up as these spectacular characters for a living. What she didn't know is she would be blown away by the magic! This Disney obsessed girl put on her Minnie Mouse ears, placed a lion king hat on her sons head and walked hand in hand with her son and fiance down Disney main street. They watched Elsa and Ana in their carriage, singing whilst it snowed and she even had a little sing a long....I mean she new every single word because in her eyes she is the real Elsa of the UK. With her son on her partners shoulders they watched Cinderella's castle light up with fireworks, lights and more magic before the clock struck twelve. A tear of happiness rolled down her cheek as she watched her 19 month old boys eyes light up and a smile appear on his face. Could life get any better then this moment right here.....? After 3 nights of fulfilling her Disney obsession the little family of 3 jumped on the eurostar  back home. As she looked out the window waving at the lit up castle she thought to herself "time to take this bit of magic back home to the birthday boys and girls of the UK". Until next time Disneyland Paris...for now I will spread the Disney magic everywhere I go!
That was a little story from one of our Franchise owners who looks after the Reading & Berkshire area. The above picture shows them meeting her hero...Mickey Mouse!
