Ice cream themed party

24th 07 2013. Posted in Buttons Parties by elliekelly

 

Last Monday we had a fantastic Ice cream themed party in Berkshire.

I had been looking forward to this party for ages and everyone involved had there fingers crossed for nice weather, well it could not have been better!

The venue was a stunning house with outside pool and barn, the birthday girl Poppy was celebrating her soon to be 3rd birthday and the menu, ice cream with lots of sprinkles and sauce!

Poppy’s mum had found a set of lovely Ice cream pintables on Esty and the party decorations and ice cream table were all pulled together to match there fun and colourful design.

Giant pinwheels lined the rote to the pool entrance steps and guests were greeted by a welcome sign and hanging paper pin wheels and honeycomb balls. (I wasn’t stood holding the sign the whole time though 🙂

For the enteritnment children of course had tons of fun in the lovely pool while the parents could relax with a drink in the knowledge a lifeguard was on duty. Buttons greeted guests and talked the children though the party options, made giant bubbles for the children to catch in the pool and then hosted glitter tattoos and face painting.

The party gifts of course had to reflect the fantastic weather and fun party so each child went home with a sand bucket and spade, ice cream pinwheel, ice cream bubbles and fantastic, you guessed it ice cream themed cake pop.

Buttons at the Festival of Speed

17th 07 2013. Posted in Buttons Parties, Team Buttons by elliekelly

 

Hello everyone,

Well what a busy & hot time we have had a Buttons. Last week was the start of the Festival of Speed at Goodwood in Chichester. We set up last Tuesday in the baking heat, putting up banners, dressing the craft tables and generally getting everything ready.

The event then started on Thursday 11th and went on until Sunday 14th and if anything it got hotter.

It was fantastic!

Even with the 4.30am starts, the heat and getting home gone 7 each night we all had a amazing time and can’t wait for next year already. Buttons provided crafts in the family marquee over the four days and the lovely people we met and the feedback we received was better then I could have hoped for. Over the four day we crafted with over 450 children and went though over 2000 crafts.

As well as working our socks of to make sure all the children had tons of fun and something fab to take home we also got some time to look around and even have a go on some of the attractions.

Each car stand had something going on and we all came back with Honda Sunglasses, Michelin hats and enjoyed a yummy ice cream while watching a 4D film on the Skoda stand. Stevie & Mercy even had a go on the surf machine on the Peugeot stand! Just want you need in 30+ heat.

 

Time for some fun
