Emergency party plan

The weather is horrible, but birthdays keep coming, tomorrow both my kids have been invited to play centre party, that is a 20/30 minute drive away, if the predicted snow falls tonight unfortunately there will some very disappointed 5 and 6 year olds.
I was talking to the birthday girls mum, and asked her if she had a contingency plan, to this I just got a blank look.

My daughters birthday is a couple of days before Christmas, so I always have a plan B in case the weather is too bad to get to the party destination.

I have a box, which I collect things throughout the year, items I can quickly make party bags out of and also small gifts that can be used for pass the parcel and other prizes for games.

I would advise everyone who has a birthday in the winter months to have a "box" to avoid disappointed children.

Fantastic testimonial

Just before Christmas I was involved in the organisation of a surprise party (joint 40th and Engagement) for a fantastic lady/couple, I have received this testimonial today

"I've known Becki for a number of years and attended several of the events she had put together and every time she delivered a brilliant service, I was looking to put together a join Engagement/Birthday party and asked Becki to help out, I was extremely busy with work so Becki offered to go the extra mile and even reached out to contact all the people I wanted to attend the event.

The food, the venue, the decorations was all supplied and or organised by Scarlett Parties and even managed to have custom made banners and cakes made too, from start to finish the process was incredibly simple and the end result was nothing short of amazing.
Family and friends from all parts of South Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Liverpool and Wales attend the party all of which were equally impressed with the event and the icing on the cake was I even had some budget left.

Top class service who I would have no doubt in referring to everyone I know."
