It’s Little Hiccups 9th Birthday this year and we invited the families to help us celebrate! We like a good party so had a lot planned.
Meet a Creature paid us a visit and brought with them a variety of animals. We had a very friendly rabbit called Flora that a number of the children fell in love with. She was a particular lovely rabbit that enjoyed hopping around the room on her lead and getting lots of cuddles from her visitors. Then there were the less cuddly animals but not less delightful. There were snakes, a bearded dragon, a tortoise, a tarantula (which enjoyed sitting on heads) among others. We had the animals on a stand in a slightly separate room so that the animals were not bothered by the noise of the party and also so the children were in a quieter room when meeting the animals.
We also invited back our regular Susie Sparkles to entertain the children as she just does it SO well! Susie has been our regular entertainment at our parties for the last few years and she knows our kids well. Her outfit for this event certainly blew us all away as she came in a gorgeous dress with enormous wings like a butterfly. It was certainly a sight to behold. Susie did her usual fantastic job entertaining all the children with games and songs and there were a lot of very tired but happy children at the end of the party – always a good result!
As if that wasn’t enough, Nicola from Face Painting by Cheeky Faces was available to paint faces and arms to requests. I saw unicorns, flowers, sunsets, action heroes, bandits. Our children do have a wonderful range of imaginations! And Nicola managed to beautifully fulfill them all!
As always, we were in the glamorous Royal Armories setting. And the staff and the way the team gels there never ceases to impress me. It honestly is like clockwork. I love events there as its just so organised! I have very little to do to prepare for the event. Just how I like it! The food went down very well. Especially the cake!
Alison from Celebration Balloons of Rothwell was also on hand to decorate the room with the finishing touches. The children loved the animal themed balloons with caterpillar, bee and butterfly balloons on top of balloon towers.
I think the parties are getting harder to top though bring on our 10th Anniversary Party next year. I have a few ideas…
“It was really nice to see Emily interact with the animals. Especially the rabbit!”
“Thanks for the great party!!”
“Enjoyed meeting the animals – Emily thought the rabbit was a teddy bear and was very reluctant to let go!”
“Thank you again Little Hiccups for a lovely morning! Took us a bit to get through the door when we got there due to “feeling too shy” but once in he had a fab time!!”
“He had so much fun xx”
“Happy 9th birthday little hiccups thankyou for todays party xxx”
