There was a great mixture good old fashioned party games along with some fun bespoke games and craftsto go with our broad theme of Finding Dory and Disney Princesses! The children loved winning prizes & were kept engaged full the full 2 hours. The finale of a Happy Birthday Hokey Cokey was a hit with the kids and parents alike and I've had great feedback from the mums that it was a brilliant party!

"Millie had an absolutely lovely 8th birthday party. We were very impressed by how well everything was organised and how you expertly managed a group of very excited 8 year olds !. The end products looked fantastic and the girls really enjoyed the production part, mixing fragrances and colours together to create their own individual bath bombs.
Feedback from the other mum's has been lovely too and all the girls were excited to try out the bath bombs they made when they went home. I would definitely recommend this type of party for 8 year olds, a great party activity for this age group. Thank you again for making Millie's day very special, and my day relatively stress free !!"

Michelle - December 2013, Berkshire
"We used Buttons to entertain the children at our Christmas party at home and they were great!  We left it to the last minute to book and they were very flexible in fitting us in.  Nothing was too much trouble and they were very accommodating to provide entertainment that met our needs in a small space.  The kids loved Stevie, the 'Elf' and she kept the kids (who ranged from 2 to 7+ years) completely engaged for the entire two hours with bubble blowing, Christmas party games, magic and dancing.  She was cheerful, professional and patient.  She even got the adults involved in the hokey cokey which went down well too!  I would thoroughly recommend Buttons and we will be using them again"
Phillipa - November 2013, Fleet
"Thank you for making Holly's birthday party so special - she loved it and we loved it that you and Chrissie took care of everything so beautifully.  I will definitely call on you again.  Thank you also for looking after Ben so well.

"I just wanted to tell you that the 1 Direction Party for my daughter Charley was a great success. Stevie entertained the children and the adults as wee. I will 100% recommend Buttons Children’s Parties to other mums. Thank you so much. Stevie was fabulous, energetic, enthusiastic & playful. The kids laughed a lot and had a wonderful time. It truly was a 1D even for all. We were all still singing the 1D songs the next day. Looking forward to booking Buttons Children's Parties next year again"

Jo - July 2013, Englefield Green
"Both Nadine and Anya thoroughly enjoyed the party and Grethe and I have had lots of thank you's from the Mum's and Dad's saying just how much the girls had enjoyed themselves.  I think a number of the deco patched initials also made their way into school on Monday for 'Show and Tell'  and were all proudly presented, which in itself speaks volumes!  For us, it was perfect to have the stress taken out of the running of the party by you hosting it and it was lovely to see that the children were instantly happily participating and well organised in their activity. 
So thank you so much for everything! I will be happily recommending you to other Mums"
Andrea - June 2013, Winchester

Nichola - December 2012, Virgina Water


 "I was very nervous arranging my first proper kids party for my daughters 3rd birthday but once I spoke to Ellie I knew I was in safe hands. Ellie was fantastic from start to finish and the kids had a total blast. Ellie varied the entertainment so there were games and dancing and magic along with some balloon modelling and face painting. What more could you ask for? But aside from all that what struck us most was the genuine love of what she does which can be seen by Ellie's energy and enthusiasm throughout. Definitely worth her weight in gold and a must for your child's next party"

Sarah Gover - November 2012


"Thanks so much for running such a lovely activity with the children. It all went very smoothly and the children had a great time. Just what we were looking for – thanks again! We’ll be sure to keep you in mind for anything similar in the future, and I’ll let my colleagues know too."
