Snow Princess Children’s Entertainers
My four year old daughter loves going to birthday parties. She’s a typical little girl (most of the time), enjoying dressing up and dancing. She’s pretty outgoing and confident. Plus like a lot of children she’s obsessed TV characters and Disney princesses.
I know that not all children enjoy socialising. My son was and still is the complete opposite. So when he was little, birthdays tended to be small family gatherings. As he got a bit older he had a couple of soft play parties, but he struggled to join in when he was Eva’s age.
At home Eva will play dress ups all the time. So when she got invited to her first themed party last year, she was excited to have her very own Anna from Frozen dress.
Her friend from Pre-school was having a Disney Frozen party and her Mum had hired ‘The Snow Princess’ based in Maidenhead, Berks to entertain the children.
Elsa from Frozen!
‘The Snow Princess Children’s Parties’ is a company in Berkshire owned by twenty six year old Lydia Welsh. As well as having many talents, including being a professional model and a trained nurse, she is a dead ringer for Princess Elsa. So she is absolutely perfect for getting into character and entertaining the little ones.
Her parties are fantastic, as Lydia will lead the whole party with songs games and stories. She keeps the kids interested throughout, giving out prizes for the best dancer, lining them up for limbo and getting the parents up dancing. She also does glitter tattoos and face paints which is great when the children first arrive.
There’s no pressure for shy children to get involved. They can sit with their parents and watch all the games or join in part of it if they like. For the more active ones, they certainly won’t get bored!
And there’s more. If your child prefers another character other than Elsa the snow princess, they have plenty to choose from. There is a Spiderman, Supergirl or Batman if princesses are not for the Birthday boy or girl. There are balloon models and age appropriate party games.
There’s also an option to mix it up with two entertainers. A princess and a superhero! There are a team of entertainers, so Lydia is not alone.
When Eva went to her friend’s party last year there was a Spider girl and Elsa. They worked well together to play the party games and keep the children interested, while the parents could relax. They also presented the birthday cake and arranged the children for photo’s. Also, when the children were sitting down for the party food, Elsa read them a story from Frozen. A lovely touch to settle them whilst they were eating in between the excitement of the music and games.
Plus a Unicorn!
This year, Eva’s same friend had Lydia back but this time she wasn’t Elsa. She transformed herself into a colourful unicorn complete with a pink mane and unicorn horn! Well, who doesn’t like unicorns? Lydia looked great. In fact it made me wish I could wear a unicorn outfit!
This time she was accompanied by Superman who was super-cool. He did flips and tricks and did a bit of break dancing for the children. A great way to get a party started. He also handed out balloons to the children, modelling them into sword shapes while Lydia took care of the glitter face paints. Eva had a blue glittery swirl on her cheek which was really effective.
Then they held a dancing competition which Eva won – of course! The prize was a ring with a Disney princess on which she was overjoyed with. Everything is suitable for the age of the children and they do not hand out sweets in case of food allergies. Then there was the limbo game and the ‘toilet paper’ game. Basically wrapping up a volunteered parent in toilet paper to resemble a snowman! There were two teams with a snowman each to make.
The best game was using inflatable bananas and taking it in turns to hop from one chair to another across the room, holding one between their legs and one under each arm! This was played by some of the grown ups too! Not me though – I was happy to watch the others have a go. However, I was up and dancing towards the end of the two hour party, as parents were encouraged to follow a routine to music that Superman and the unicorn were doing. The time flew by.
What else can you have?
If you fancy a different character then there are other party packages with different characters. There’s Belle from Beauty and the beast, Arial the Little mermaid, and even a character from Trolls. Plus My Little Pony, Tinkerbell the fairy or a festive themed party at Christmas time. Lydia has recruited a talented team who can not only entertain, but actually resemble the chosen character. The costumes are fab, and as it says on her website – ‘no wigs or disappointing lookalikes here’, which is just brilliant.
For older children, they can have dance or cheerleaders parties. That is a huge choice!
I was mesmerised, not only by how colourful Lydia’s unicorn costume was and how alike she is to Elsa (once you’ve seen this Elsa, nothing else will come close) but also by how organised she is throughout the party. She kept the children in check – especially when they were jumping the queue during limbo! She had everything timed to a tee and was so professional.
Eva would love a Snow Princess party for her birthday which is in December. I’d have to book early because they do the Christmas parties that month. The problem would probably be choosing which character to have – they all look awesome!
Lydia gave me permission to write this post add my photo’s of her.
