How To Create A Festival Inspired Party

How To Create a Festival Inspired Party

We love a good festival at PV HQ. With festival season in full swing, we think it is the perfect theme for any summer party. Festival inspired parties are fun, filled with colour and can be enjoyed by everyone at any age. With lots of well known celebrities such as Binky Felstead and the Kardashians jumping firmly on this party trend, we think this summer party trend is here to stay. Here are a few ideas to get your Festival theme party started.


A Place to Chill

Teepee’s are an essential for any festival themed party. If you are hosting a garden party, then set your chill out area inside your home for tired party guests to relax.

ParentVille Parties have a selection of party stylists who will transform your space into an enchanting haven for your little festival goers.

Set The Scene

Decorating your venue or garden can be fun – think Fairy lights, buntings, paper flowers or pom poms and balloons. Balloons are a must for any festival. They are a fun way to inject colour into your soiree and the children will love them. Especially if they can take a balloon home with them at the end.

5 Top Easter Party Ideas for Kids

In my family, the Easter Egg Hunt was always a strong tradition. Grandparents were the ones in charge of hiding the eggs and me and my sister and cousins would run around the garden competing to see who would find more eggs although we knew we would have to share it all at the end.

Now my parents do it for my children and it’s such a nice moment of pure joy and family fun.

Searching for inspiration for this year’s Easter Egg Hunt I found some great ideas to add some healthy treats to the basket and DIY projects to do with the kids.

Don’t get me wrong! I have nothing against the chocolate eggs, but mix it with a less sugary treat and some challenging activities was something I was willing to try.

And that’s when Sally sent me this amazing idea for some super cute “carrots” from The House That Lars Built


How cool is that?

And scrolling up on the Pinterest feed I found an amazing idea for decorating your table. A colourful Egg table runner. “All you need: eggs, egg cartons, and food coloring” See the how to do it here.


Ok! Table is set and healthy treats on the way. Now let’s get creative! What if instead of finding the eggs the kids would just find the tools to create their own Easter treat? These Easter Basket Cupcake Kits are just perfect for a family fun afternoon in the kitchen.


Yummy biscuits are a beautiful treat to give as an Easter gift to family and friends. Easter eggs, Easter Bunnies or carrot shaped iced biscuits. All options are just too cute!


Last but not least, an idea that will take your Easter Kids Party to the next level. A Giant Egg Pinata! This one from Oh Happy Days is just gorgeous. Check out our Pinterest Easter Board for more inspiration. Have fun! 🙂

How to prepare a birthday party in a week

When I returned from the Christmas holidays the last thing I wanted to do was to organize another party. Just when I needed a nice, calm start to 2018 it dawned on me…birthday party! My eldest son is turning 9. We will all just have to keep on celebrating. No change of a dry January!

It is the same every year.  It is after all the same date every year. Yet again, I have nothing prepared or planned. When I realized the birthday was a week away I’ll be honest, I panicked, I even considered postponing the party. However, looking at our family agenda I realised this wasn’t going to happen so I’d just better put my grown-up hat on and get on with it!

How to prepare a birthday party in a week? I know what you are thinking… “That is impossible!” I had exactly the same opinion until I had to do it last week and … it worked!


So here is how I planned it:

1 – I asked my son to do a list of up to 10 friends he would like to invite (I ended up with 15)

2 – I wrote a text so Dad could send it to the children parents to invite them. I started by apologizing for this “rude” and “very late” invitation of course!

3 – I delegated the inviting task to Dad. He was the one who would be in charge of sending invitations and receive confirmations and then inform me of the number of kids attending.

4 – I decided on the party venue. It was too late to book whatever we wanted and Christmas was already too expensive so we decided to save some pennies and have it at home (panic again!)

5 – With the “venue” sorted, I needed to think what I needed to order ASAP: It was cake, decoration, and candy

6 – I went on Pinterest for inspiration for a Harry Potter Party. When I found the cake I booked it straight away from Parentville Parties. It literally took me 5 minutes to do it.

7 – Then I also ordered 3 jars of Candy and themed party treats to give to the guests as party bags. I explained on Parentville Parties chat with the provider that I was doing a Harry Potter Themed party and in 10 minutes it was all sorted and ordered.

8 – So, at this point, I have: venue, cake, party bags and candy. I still need to sort out the food and entertainment.

9 – Concerning the food, I decided to:

a) Have pizza as main

b) Have some bouls of fruit and vegetables on the table and well as popcorns, cheese and crackers

c) And that we would have cake for dessert

10 – I went to Pinterest again and found some great games to do with the kids at home and then ordered what I needed to do it from Amazon. Here is the list of things I ordered for games and decoration:

Harry Potter tablecloth
Red Balloons
Golden Paper Cups
Golden Party Plates
Golden Plastic Cutlery
Harry Potter Party Plates
Golden Balloons
Popcorn Boxes
Led Battery candles
Pack of A4 Old Look Paper
Brick Print Wall Paper

11 – Finally I printed all the free printables I could find for a Harry Potter themed party. You need to have a colour printer for that, and I just spread them around the house.

Yes it was an intense week, but I have to admit I also had lots of fun!

So let’s recap in bullet points what you need to do if you have to prepare a birthday party in a week:

1) Send Invitations (and delegate this task)

2) Decide and book venue. If you can’t find anything, do it at home… it will be fine!

3) Order cake, candy and party bags

4) Decide on the food and make a list

5) Go on Pinterest for inspiration for games and decoration

6) Order what you need

7) Enjoy the party!

“There is nothing quite like us” in Chelsea

Tally Hackett and Ruth Bridges used to work at Francis Holland in Sloane Square, in Chelsea. Ruth was the Head of PE and Tally was the Administrator and Head’s PA in the Junior School. With their “combined skill set”, they quickly realised they had the tools to be the best in their field. And this was the very beginning of Tails and Beau. We talked with Tally to find out more about this project and what are their plans for the future. 

How did you came up with the idea?

We both felt there was a need for somewhere in London, which could offer excellent childcare during the school holidays, in a non-educational setting. Our vision was the same; to provide a safe and exciting environment for children to be socially, emotionally and physically stimulated.

What was your biggest challenge when you first started your own business?

I would say our biggest challenge at the beginning was time! In different ways; Ruth had just had a baby and I was still working full time at school. I’m sure any new mum or anyone with a job can empathise! Once we had our time management down there was no stopping us, it’s amazing when your business partner and yourself share the same drive. Being able to motivate each other is lovely.


Is London a good environment for starting a business?

London is the perfect place for Tails and Beau, particularly in Chelsea, where we are based. There is nothing quite like us in the area.

What is your biggest achievement so far?

Our biggest achievement was being totally blown away by the unbelievably positive feedback we received from the children and parents in July after our first activity weeks.

Who is your target audience?

Children aged between 5 and 11, oh and their parents!

How do you maintain your work/ life balance?

We are in constant contact and meet weekly to plan and discuss the business. We are so excited with the direction that Tails & Beau has taken. Being busy people, we are able to juggle quite a bit and thrive on being hard working and engaged. Where there’s a will, there’s a way!

What are your future plans?

We are taking one step at a time because the quality in what we deliver is so important to us. However, the dream would be to open Tails & Beau venues all over London…


Any advice you would give to a fellow entrepreneur?

Reputation. Treat others as you wish to be treated, it really goes to show that a little kindness goes a long way, we were very lucky to be offered help by some wonderful visiting guests (authors, entrepreneurs etc).

What are your favourite weekend activities?

We love the English countryside, and the seaside actually! Day trips make the weekend that much longer, we love spending quality time with family and friends. At Tails & Beau we are big on mindfulness and escaping the hustle and bustle makes being in the moment that much easier.
