What is a bespoke children’s party I hear you say? Well it’s the wild ideas and make believe adventures that your child dreams of brought to life by the Oglee Poglee team of arty adventurers.
Martha was turning 7 this year and her mum approached me looking for a party that would make Martha’s dreams come true. The brief was simple, to make sure Martha was the focus and that she could wear her favourite blue dungarees! So we got our thinking caps on. After discussing a few possible ideas with mum the party theme was set and friends were invited to “The Giant’s Tea Party”.
The party started with Martha reading out loud a letter written to her by the Queen. The royal letter announced that Britain was in danger and the Country needed her help. A giant was on his way and the only way to prevent him trampling the land was to distract him with food. Lots of food! The queen was hosting a tea party for the giant and it was Martha’s job to discover what the giant liked to eat and get everything prepared. Cool hey!
After a quick fact finding game we discovered that our giant loved cupcakes, cocktails and sandwiches. So Martha and her friends got to work straight away making foam clay cupcakes, paper sandwiches with ketchup and some very frothy cocktails.
Naming your cocktail was a highlight and made us all giggle. I wonder if giants like “poo powder”, “sprinkle drink” and “caramel fizz”!
I loved designing Martha’s party, the children loved the theme and worked together as a team to create a table of pretend food that any giant would have eagerly gobbled up.
“A brilliant party from start to finish, thanks Claire! Martha and her friends had a great time and I enjoyed putting my feet up watching you do all the hard work!” Helen, Berkhamsted
