The first thing to keep in mind from your Princess Visit is that it is tailored specifically to your situation! We do events with hundreds of children, and also visits for just one child!! What we do in the time will depend on location, number of children, age of children, and also what will be most enjoyed!

Each visit always includes the following:

  • Balloon Model Princess or gift for the birthday girl
  • Hand stamp / ink tattoo for each child to the theme (ie Elsa will bring a Snowflake stamp)
  • Glitter for cheeks or hands (we use biodegradable chunky festival style glitter in Aloe Vera gel)
  • Photo opportunities

Here is also what can be included:- a mix to suit the age / space / number of children / noise level (your princess will bring  a small speaker but we don’t set up the full PA for these visits plus it isn’t always suitable for music in eg a restaurant setting)

  • Story time
  • Singing (either with your princess singing to a backing track or singing along with the children to the soundtrack)
  • Bubbles
  • Dancing ( we have scarves we pass out for colourful movement, as well as silly party dances)
  • Games (popular choices include pass parcel, duck duck goose, corners, statues)
  • Story-time – chosen to compliment your specific princess.
  • Glitter tattoos
  • Presenting of cake and getting everyone singing Happy Birthday!
  • Fingernail painting
  • Conversation!! Your princess will chat all about their princess world and all the characters involved in their story and can answer lots of questions!

Here are some examples of a typical Princess Appearance visit and what it could include

Example 1: Princess Visit at Children’s Party of around 20 x 2-5 year olds

Photo opportunities for group and individuals. Hand stamps. Glitter. Dancing with scarves. Singing with bubbles. Presenting of cake. Story time. Singing. Balloon model princess for the birthday girl

Balloon modelling works great at weddings!

Not just for the kids either – if anything we are more popular with the adults!!

Think of a balloon twister in the same capacity as you would book a close up magician. We carry the balloons in an apron round the waist worn over a 50s style dress – we are always beautifully presented and fit in with the elegance of the evening. We are fully mobile and can walk from table to table creating balloons for your guests. We use a lot of headbands and wearable designs which will look wonderful later in the dance-floor. Our beautiful fascinators are always popular as are the fun hats, jet packs, helicopters, wings and more! We can also make balloon caricatures of your guests – people love having a balloon mini me!

We can also make bespoke bride and groom sculptures to be ordered in advance – either a small table top design right up to life sized models! These reflect the couples colourings, hair and dress style. A real talking point!

We love hearing back from you after the party!

Here are some recent comments! (and drawings too!)

feedback partyfeedback party2

“Kerry arranged for Georgia to be the entertainer at my daughters 6th Birthday party. It’s the first time I had used an entertainer and I was a little worried but Come to my Party had an excellent Fairy party package and my daughter wanted a fairy theme. Kerry and Georgia were flexible and worked the party schedule around some other ideas that my daughter wanted me to include, which I provided. On the day Georgia was great. She spent time getting to know my daughter and when it came to some of the party games it was obvious as she knew which songs she did and didn’t like. She engaged with all the other party guests too and expertly handled the odd ‘testing’ guests to make sure everyone enjoyed the party and they all had a fair turn at the games which all the children took part in and thoroughlyenjoyed. I would highly recommend Georgia, she was a real pro and made the party really enjoyable for all the girls. The parents that stayed to the party all commented on how good she was. Thank you x” Gill

“Thankyou Kerry for a great party , the kids loved all the games and balloons , will highly recommend you , thanks again xx” Anna

“” Hi Kerry, could you please say a big thank you to Ryan for today, Eli had a fantastic time and he was really great! Thanks again,” Ella

“Kerry and Spidey – We just wanted to say what fantastic party entertainers you both are! Jack and the kids had the time of their life.  It was hugely enjoyable, awesome in fact. Thank you both so much – lots of positive feedback from parents and kids! We would DEFINITELY recommend you!! A great double act and thanks for the other touches too – the Spiderman balloon for Jack and the spare balloon swords…Many thanks again – superb!” Neil & Marian

Hi Kerry just to say the party was great thank you, Verity loved it and Pirate Ryan was brilliant at keeping 27 kids engaged! Can you please thank him again from us”  Sarah

Hi Kerry I’ve been meaning to email you ever since Daisy’s party to say how brilliant Georgia was. Daisy got a bit overwhelmed by things and sat part of the party out (typical!) but she was mesmerised by it all and her friends all had a brilliant time. The mum’s loved it too and got involved with a bit of singing and dancing. Georgia was fantastic with the kids, the games were pitched just right and everyone loved all the Frozen theming and music. I wanted to let you know how impressed I was. The feedback from all the mums was wonderful with everyone saying what a brilliant time they and their children had had. The sweetest moment came at the end when Georgia was saying her goodbyes and one of the girls came up to her and said, “Elsa, would you like to come upstairs and play with me?” They were so captivated her, their belief that she really was Elsa was adorable! Anyway, a big thank you for your part in the organisation of everything. Please do pass on my comments to Georgia who really was lovely. Top marks. I will certainly be recommending you to others!” Kate

“Hi Kerry, Just wanted to say thank you once again for such a fab party yesterday, all the children loved it! When I asked Holly what her favourite thing about the party was, she said ‘Princess Anna’!
I had a message from one of the mums this morning which said ‘I didn’t realise it was possible to be even more enthusiastic about Frozen, but it is!’ I think her little girl really enjoyed herself! So, thank you once again!
We shall recommend you wholeheartedlyCheryl

“Thank you so much, Kerry for the most wonderful children’s party on Sunday. The twins had a magical and fantastic time and haven’t stopped telling people about the fairy that came to visit them at their party! The adults all had a great time too and everyone has been talking about how great you were, particularly at getting all the children involved, despite the age range. Thanks for accommodating everyone’s balloon requests, no matter how unconventional and apologies for the demanding adults wanting balloons too! Everyone thought you were amazing and I will definitely be recommending you to anyone interested in a party.” Sian


“Hi Kerry. I meant to email you last Sunday, but have been so busy I haven’t had a chance: thanks so much for your wonderful work with the balloons. The kids absolutely loved your terrific designs — I think it really made the party. We’ll hope to book you again next year, if we do something similar! All the best” 
Suzanne

“Hi Kerry, Firstly, thank you so so much for the amazing day that you have provided to the girls today. They, and their friends had the time of their lives and we couldn’t have hoped for a better experience. Your attention to detail, and willingness to accommodate our needs has really been amazing and noticed by everyone who came. I had lots of compliments from guests saying that you were wonderful and a natural with the kids. It takes someone really special to do  what you were able to do today! So thank you!” Sandra

Adult party games!

Party games aren’t just for kids you know!

At our News years Eve party we had great fun with an easy to rustle up party game. All that is needed is a tea light, a cork, thread and a safety pin!

The cork is attached to the thread on one end and pinned to the player’s bottom on the other. The tealight is lit and the aim is to put out the light! Lots of laughs follow!
