Hi Sue,

Happy New Year sorry I have not been in touch it has been a really busy start to the year. Thank you so much for organising our Xmas party 2011. This is the second children's party you have organised for us and once again it was a huge success largely due to the quality of entertainment and your personal organisation of the entire event. Thank you for the boxes and boxes of crackers you donated they brought a real cheer to the event. I look forward to planning the next one with you and will be recommending your services to anyone who requires a similar service.

Kind Regards

Dear Simon,

I just wanted to take the time to thank you and your team for a fantastic birthday party. Everything was just perfect and just as I'd hoped and Nat spontaneously said 'I really enjoyed my party' when we put him to bed which made it all worth it! Naomi was brilliant and on top of things, Donna was, as described, amazing.

I will definitely be calling you in future years. Thanks for your organisational help and more and best wishes,

Hi Su,

The sessions that we have attended at Kinloch castle were great fun and enjoyed by all. They were fabulous for speech and language development, creative development, physical development and also personal, social and emotional development. Children were able to partake in turn-taking and team work. Their attention was held because of the stimulating and active nature of the sessions.

The story sessions allowed the children to enter into another world. The room where the sessions were held was magical and the story tellers captured the children's attention and imagination.

On the 14th December, two special needs children attended the session.

One child is especially visual and enjoyed copying the actions of the story tellers. The other child watched from the comfort of an adult's lap. This was the first time that he was able to do this for any length of time. We were very pleased with this development.

Many thanks Su

Dear Su

I just wanted to thank everyone at Birthday Dreams for the most amazing party this morning! Everything ran like clockwork, the staff were amazing and efficient, I can't thank you enough. My daughter had the best party ever and I could tell that every other child enjoyed the experience too. I was very impressed with the quality of the party bags too.

Thanks once again and very best wishes,

Dear Su and Co,

I can't thank the three of you enough. What a fantastic birthday. Rose had the time of her life and I felt I held the best and easiest birthday party for my child ever! No stress, no pre-preparation, no running around getting food cooked and preparing party bags, no clean up. Just easy and simple, turn up and it's all done.

When I first got in touch with you I really couldn't imagine how you could accommodate all of Rose's strange and specific birthday party wishes: such as her love of drama, her love of Annie and her wish for traditional party games. But you managed it!

The drama teacher/party entertainer was amazing and so professional, she was absolutely fantastic, so creative and fun, the children loved her.

And the lady who greeted us and looked after us, Naomi, she was so nice and really so good with the kids (and the parents). If a child came out of the party she straight away noticed and took the time to see if they were ok, she found out if they needed anything (time out, a drink or the loo). She kept me informed of the order of events and even made the cake extra special.

I guess you know that we parents want our kids to feel special and you guys really took the trouble to make Rose feel like a queen for the day. She really noticed all the little ways in which she was the star, like having her own seat, having a special cup at food time, getting the starring role in the song-show. I couldn't have asked for more.

And all of the extra things that did not even occur to me, such as gathering all the kids at the front and taking them in together so making the special experience begin for them all together for the birthday party journey; like have coffee/tea available for parents; like packing all the presents in an easy to carry bag for us to take away; like taking the time and trouble to worry about special diets needs (my nieces kosher food needs); like the party bags, which were different and special.

One parent at the school said she was now mad at me because I raised the ante on the birthday parties! I think many more will now have their parties there, I cannot recommend you highly enough to them.

Thank you very much for everything.

All the best

Dear Naomi,

Thanks very much indeed for providing such a lovely party for Beatrice (and Cressida) this morning.  Beatrice had a lovely time and so did we.  It really went perfectly in all respects and we are very grateful indeed to you.

Su,

Just a note to say thank you for a very successful afternoon on Saturday for Rebecca's birthday party.  The children all had a lovely time and it was very relaxing for the parents.  You have a lovely venue and your staff did a really great job.  Please pass on my appreciation.

Kind regards

Dear Su,

While it's still fresh in my mind, I wanted to write you a quick note to thank you and your colleagues for hosting a fabulous 5th birthday party for my son, Zac, yesterday. The day went off without a hitch, as I had both hoped and expected.

As we have discussed, the quality of the event was outstanding throughout. First of all, the venue is maintained to a high standard - everyone noted the excellent condition of both the children's "castle" room and the parents' cafe. The kids were fully occupied by the wonderful entertainers for the entire 2 hour period, having lots of fun and making lots of noise!

Nonetheless, the cafe remained peaceful and quiet - an unexpected oasis of calm and relaxation for the parents who could enjoy themselves in quiet (we could not hear the children's din!) with the knowledge that their kids were constructively engaged. The service was also outstanding throughout, and the food, especially the sandwich platters, was delicious.

Finally, the party bags were an exceptional surprise - beautifully and creatively crafted, and truly unique.

All of my guests commented favourably on the party, and hopefully some will come back to book in the future!

In all, it's hard to find fault with the way in which you and your staff conducted every aspect of the event, a truly unusual situation! Your facility is a one-of-a-kind "find" in London!

As mentioned, I would be happy to provide future references, if needed, and also to be a "sounding board" as you develop your business. I wish you and your colleagues all the best of luck with Birthday Dreams!

Many thanks, once again.

With kind regards,

Lee

Dear Su,

Thank you for the brilliant party you arranged for Jayden's 4th birthday.

Naomi was the perfect host and the entertainer was amazing, she had the children captivated from start to finish. I was amazed at how much she packed in.

I think all the adults and children enjoyed the whole experience - it was the most carefree children's party I have ever attended, every single thing was taken care of. Holly said 'lots of parents were texting her on the way home saying it was the best party they had ever been to', and to thank her so much for giving their children such a lovely time.

All the staff were excellent, including the ones providing the catering, they were so attentive making sure everything ran smoothly. Last but not least the icing on the cake was the cake - it was fantastic, Jayden loved it and it was delicious.

Many thanks
