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!
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!
Don't leave it until the last minute Bristol Parents!
Christmas is a time for family, fun and of course, food! But don’t forget about all those December and January babies (me being one of them) who year, after year have their birthdays put to one side! I’m not necessarily accusing every parent of doing this, but you know who you are, and…
…to be honest, its understandable, there is so much excitement and expenditure (maybe more of one than the other sometimes), that when you know something is going to cost you more money it's often left until the last minute. Or at least until payday arises, this is when there is a sudden search for last minute birthday activities.

Mallory, our Bristol Manager loves hosting parties...she loves it so much that she ends up doing a lot of the parties...even the boys parties and she has been delighted over the past few months at the amount of girls having Superhero or Jedi Parties...Gone are the years of girls having a Princess party and boys having an action party! We caught up with Mall on a recent experience she had:
"I recently hosted a party in Westbury on Trym, Bristol, and I couldn’t tell you how refreshing it was being Supergirl for a girl’s party. Pheobe, who had recently turned 7 was of course the ultimate Supergirl herself, but as her guests kept arriving we eventually found ourselves about 20 little Supergirls, along with quite a few other Superheroes in tow…
I have a feeling that all the Dad’s at this party felt a little outnumbered and were surprised at the power and grit these little Superheroes really had! I mean, they were showing some serious sass! And so they should!
Quite often, as a company, we send along female Superheroes, such as Wonderwoman, Catwoman and Supergirl to boys parties. Mainly because in past experience we’ve found it works well. The little girls love her because the entertainer is a girl and the little boys love her because she is a Superhero – its a win win situation, with noone feeling left out.
This party reminded me that actually, Superhero parties aren't just for boys and that “in a world full of Princesses, dare to be Batman” is the way forward if we want to make sure our children believe they are as strong and equal as each other growing up in this world."
