Party Planning in Sotogrande
By Laura Oldfield, Jun 30 2017 12:23PM
We love Sotogrande, it’s a stunning part of the Costa del Sol, popular with families because of the excellent schools, sports facilities and proximity to Gibraltar. The area boasts some great villas, with large pools, which make perfect party venues and we have been lucky enough to work with some lovely Sotogrande families to create unforgettable kids’ parties.
We recently worked with a Sotogrande Mum to develop a Hawaii summer theme party in the garden of their villa for their daughter’s 7th birthday. It was a great theme for a summer birthday where we had the luxury of a large pool. We worked the theme through every element – the party bags, balloons, sacks for the sack race and even the bouncy castle took you to a tropical island paradise. The cake made by Alyson’s Cakes was pretty as a picture in pastel tones, with flowers and a hula girl vibe. The music was in keeping too, combining chilled Hawaiian music with the Moana soundtrack, gave a great atmosphere that all ages could get into.
There were a few very special details and activities, which gave it the wow factor, like flamingos popping up from the hedges and a giant flamingo inflatable in the pool for the perfect first impression. For the Hawaii Five-0 feel, we had a mechanical surfboard ride, where guests young and old put their surfing skills to the test and tried to stay on the board for as long as possible. It was great fun, and quite a challenge too.
This party was a good example of how with our help, kids and adults alike can have a great time and the hosts aren’t under pressure. This was a big family party, with a lot of kids of all ages and a lot of adults too. We made sure that everyone was safe and taken care of with a qualified lifeguard and baby sitter for the little ones, bouncy castle monitors and entertainers. We also organised waitresses to look after the parents and made sure there were activities that everyone could join in with. The Kids Parties Spain team set up the villa as a party venue and at the end of the party, we had cleaners on hand to make the pack up easy-peasy for the family.
If you live in the Sotogrande area and would like to see Kids Parties Spain in action and meet the team, come on down to the Beach BBQ by danii children’s cancer charity on the 3rd of July at Chambao in Torreguardiaro. From 19.30 to there will be live music and lots going on and we’ll be there to entertain the kids. Adults entry is 5€, which includes a drink and kids entry is 2.50€ and it’s raising money for this excellent cause.
If you can’t make it, but would like us to help you with a kids’ party in Sotogrande, please contact us.
