Festival

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.

What to pack for a long haul flight with kids

Kids are finally on holidays and for many London families, this weekend will be spent traveling to a warm and relaxed destination for some deserved days by the beach with the kids. Although the thought of holidays is always pleasant, the logistics it involves for parents (especially mums, let’s be honest) might be a bit stressful.
There is too much to be done before going to the airport. Last minute chores at the house, last minute emails to make sure everything is in order at work and, of course, packing. I love going on holidays but I hate packing. I really do. I always try to start packing the kids clothes in advance, a few days before the trip, and I end up just squeezing in my stuff in the end. Can you relate to that?
Traveling by plane it’s not my favorite thing in the world but, unless you travel in the UK, you don’t really have much choice. Besides what you take in your luggage you have to take a handbag or backpack full of things to entertain the little ones and for their basic needs.
I remember when my oldest son was about 3 years old, I always traveled with a little box of crisps. It was our “emergency kit” for plane delays, loud tantrums or any other situation that required some special treat. For my youngest daughter, I always took at least two bottles of milk. Now, as a treat, I take gum and jelly beans :). For entertainment, white paper, lots of coloring pencils, sticker books, reading books and our kids kindle tablet.
If you are wondering what to take on the plane with you to make your trip easier with the kids, check out our checklist with things you might need for the journey and to entertain your little ones.
Have a great summer holiday!
For the journey, you might need:
 
☑ A collapsible one-piece stroller
☑ Cardigans or comfy jackets
☑ A soft pashmina or small blanket
☑ A large muslin for the baby bassinet
☑ Decompression socks to minimise the risk of deep vein thrombosis
☑ More nappies and wipes than you need
☑ 2 or 3 extra dummies
☑ Your child’s comforter
☑ A couple of changes of clothes for your children and at least one for you
☑ Infant paracetamol/ibuprofen in sachets
☑ Premixed formula and sealed baby food jars or pouches
☑ Hand sanitizing wipes
☑ A good supply of clean muslins
Entertainment:
☑ For babies: a sleeping bag, a CD of favourite lullabies, a beloved cuddly toy or blanket.
☑ A variety of new sticker books and activity books
☑ A personal DVD Player or Tablet
☑ Children’s earphones
☑ Plenty of snacks: breadsticks, crackers, rice cakes, fruit, and raisins
☑ Your child’s hand luggage bag or Trunki with some of their favourite toys (let them pick a few)
☑ Lot’s of white paper and colouring pencils
☑ Your kids favourite treats
☑ A tablet for the kids. Our choice goes to Kindle. Love all the parenting control already set up and there are fun and creative games for all ages.

 

Preparing for a flight with kids?

You’ve bought your airline tickets, scoured the Internet for the best child-friendly accommodation and you’re ready to go. Time to relax and enjoy the holiday, right? Wrong. There is just the little question of the long-haul flight to contend with. Here are our top tips on how to get you and your little ones through it in one piece…

Preparation is key so the more you can do before you arrive at the airport the better

  1. Choose your seats wisely. Take a good look at the airplane seating plan online and make sure you’re close enough to the toilets so you can get there quickly if your children want to go or you need to change a nappy. You don’t want to get stuck behind an airhostess pushing a trolley all the way up the aisle when your little one is crossing her legs desperate for a wee. But don’t be too close or your children might be woken up from naps by all the door banging. Easy access to the aisle is useful too so you can move around when little legs get bored of sitting still. Your neighbour might get a bit annoyed if you constantly have to disturb them every time you need to get up.
  2. Pre order a basinet if you have a small baby under 2. Most airplanes only have a few on board so don’t leave it to chance. Remember if your child is under 2 they won’t get their own seat on the plane and will have to be on your lap for the duration of the flight. Also pre-book children’s meals and any special dietary requirements.
  3. If you want to take a buggy with more than one part you’ll usually need to pay extra to store it in the hold of the plane and the same goes for a car seat. You don’t need to do this for collapsible one-piece strollers – most airlines let you take these right to the gate with you.
  4. Weigh your luggage. You don’t want to get to the airport and have to pay a fortune for those extra pairs of shoes you packed at the last minute. Buy a luggage scale so you can be sure you’re under the limit.
  5. Try and make sure everyone has an early night before you travel. A tired mummy and daddy plus tired kids is not a good idea before a long flight.
  6. Dress wisely – comfort is key for you and the kids. Don’t wear tight fitting clothes that will become restrictive on the flight. Wear layers – the temperature on board can range wildly during a flight form fierce air conditioning to stuffiness so if you have a cardigan you can easily take it on or off. A soft pashmina is also useful to have as you can wrap up in it or use it as an extra blanket for your children. And don’t forget decompression socks to minimise the risk of deep vein thrombosis.
  7. For a few extra pounds you can buy lounge access at most major UK airports. This means you can have a quiet space to get a drink and a snack before the flight rather than having to fight everyone else to get an overpriced cup of coffee in the main concourse. Most lounges have complimentary food and drink, televisions, WiFi and air conditioning!
  8. Pack your hand luggage carefully. Always take more nappies and wipes than you need; take two or three dummies in case your little ones decides to throw one under a row of seats during the fight; take a couple of changes of clothes for your children and at least one for you in case of spillages, sickness or just general muckiness; take infant paracetamol/ibuprofen in sachets to make the dosing easy; bring premixed formula and sealed baby food jars or pouches; hand sanitising wipes are great to fight off any germs and a good supply of clean muslins is essential if travelling with a baby. If you have a toddler that likes to be independent, giving them their own hand luggage bag is a good idea. Trunki’s or a little bag with their favourite character on are great fun. Not only will they like carrying/pulling/sitting on it but also they can be involved in packing it up with a few favourite things from home that they can use on the flight. Don’t forget you’ll probably end up carrying it at some point when the novelty wears off so don’t make it too big or heavy!
  9. A long haul flight can be boring for everyone so if you don’t want tantrums and tears it’s best to try and pack enough to keep the kids entertained. For babies there isn’t much you can do except hope they sleep so bring familiar things to help soothe them – a sleeping bag if they use one, a cd of favourite lullabies, a beloved cuddly toy or blanket. For older children it’s all about variety. Buy a few new things to surprise them with on the flight – it doesn’t have to be expensive items but a new sticker book, magazine or colouring book mid flight may just be a lifesaver. Activity books are a good bet as they usually have stickers, colouring and games to keep kids entertained. Although most flights have some sort of inflight entertainment system, if you kids are fussy, a personal DVD player or iPad you can load with their favourite TV shows or films will really help the hours go quicker. And if they won’t share one or don’t like the same programmes, you might have to invest in one each. Remember to bring children’s earphones – fellow passengers are unlikely to want to hear Peppa Pig on loop for five hours…
  10. Pack plenty of snacks to keep the children fuelled up in between meals. Avoid too many sugary treats as this can over stimulate and may lead to crazy kids in the aisles. Try breadsticks, crackers, rice cakes, fruit and raisins and make sure you all have plenty of water to drink as the cabin air pressure can lead to dehydration.

A morning Surprise

 

You don’t need to wait until all the birthday guests are here!

Prepare a nice surprise first thing in the morning, the day will start with a magical touch.

For instance, why not hang a balloon curtain on the door of their room? They will discover it as soon as they wake up!

Love, Team ParentVille

 

Bury a time capsule

An amazing way to go back in time when your little one grows up!

Prepare a glass jar or a decorated box and ask all his friends at the party to write messages to him, imagining what he will become in the future for example.

Add a few recent photos, postcards of your latest vacation, some photos of that birthday (Polaroids) and a couple of keepsakes. Why not keep a flock of their hair as well!

Love, Team ParentVille
