Is it just me, or does everyone struggle for birthday party ideas?!
Coming up with something unique and special to celebrate your child’s birthday or other special occasion can often be a challenge, not to mention time consuming in planning, buying decorations, trying to coordinate the decorations to look just right (something I personally struggle with!), set everything up to look just perfect... and of course the dreaded packing up at the end!
To solve the birthday party stress, we recently put the Slumber Sisters to the test with one of their themed birthday parties for our little ones.
Slumber Sisters is the brainchild of two clever mums from the Sunshine Coast, who create incredible themed slumber parties in your own home – complete with handmade teepees, mattresses, sheets, blankets, cushions, fairy lights and lanterns, breakfast trays and the most gorgeous styling pieces. Each guest receives a complimentary eye mask to take home, which is a lovely touch. Then the next day (the icing on the cake) they come and pack everything away!
From the moment we contacted Sarah and Amanda, they were so helpful – they worked with us on the theme and sent photos of suggestions to ensure we were on the same page. They touched base several times before the day to confirm various aspects including arrival times. Nothing was a problem and they were very friendly and professional.
They arrived on time and everything was set up prior to the guests’ arrival. My daughter was celebrating her 13th birthday and choose a 'Boho' theme so style pieces included tea lights, flowers, boho style cushions, fairy lights, dream catchers and rugs. The effect was amazing!
The reactions of the guests and of course the birthday girl herself really says it all...
“Wow, this looks amazing!”
“I love the decorations, it’s even better than I imagined!”
“Your mum is so great for organising this!” (my personal favourite!)
For me, it was the most stress-free party I have ever organised. It meant I was able to actually enjoy the evening along with the girls (as much as they would allow) without running around feeling exhausted, and the clean-up was a dream!
Slumber Sisters' slogan is 'Creating slumber parties to remember', and they certainly did not disappoint!
