Adding magic to slumber parties
A new company serving Stamford, Market Deeping, Bourne and the surrounding area aims to take the stress out of organising children’s birthday parties.
Nisha Patel, the owner of Magical Slumber Parties, said she came up with the concept after doing research online.
“We moved to Peterborough three years ago when my daughter was just six months old,” said Nisha.
“Now that she’s older and is going to nursery school I started looking around for something to do.
“I’m a creative person and looked online for ideas and came across this concept being offered in Australia.”
She said while similar businesses were operating in the UK , she could not find a comparable service run locally.
Nisha, who lives in Peterborough, said she found the idea appealing as not only would it allow her to show off her creativity, but an added benefit is the fact that most of the work takes place at weekends leaving her time during the week to do the things she needs to.
She took the leap and opened Magical Slumber Parties in March.
The company delivers and sets up sleepover parties for boys or girls at a clients home - which includes the supply of inflatable beds, tents and bedding - and then collects it all the next morning.
Two packages are available - basic and premium - with prices starting from £100 for four children.
“We offer something different for parties and can cater to themes if needed,” said Nisha.
“We’ve done football parties, one with a Hawaiian theme or we can do specific colour schemes.
“Not everyone wants a theme but we try and personalise it as much as possible.”
Nisha said the basic package was a drop off and collect service with the client setting everything up while the premium package included set up and accessories such as a midnight feast box for each child or a breakfast.
The company also provides a sleepover party guide which makes suggestions for games and activities.
“The reaction so far has been quite good and I have had positive comments and feedback,” said Nisha, adding they also catered to hen parties, ladies nights or weddings.
