When I first saw Teepees Tents and Treats fabulous fairy-lit set-ups on Facebook, I wished such a thing had existed when I was 9 years old. Oh heck, who am I kidding? I want one of their gorgeously glittery sleep-over parties now at… ahem… a little older than 9.
Alas, I am too big. BUT that didn’t stop us living vicariously through our children. And when we saw the range of available themes (including army base, superheroes, etc), we just had to give them a go.
Owner Riz appears at your house (or party location) with an abundance of friendliness and energy and transforms your sleepover space like some sort of sparkly interior-design fairy. Without us having to lift a finger, she had four miniature tents and an indoor campsite set up within the hour, complete with a gorgeous pretend campfire and matching bedding, which included pillows that look like tree trunk cross-sections (so cool!).
Along with the total lack of hassle on your part (just give Riz the space and she’ll make it wonderful), it’s the attention to detail that really struck me. I’m a big believer that it’s always all in the little things.
The lights (all safe and battery operated), the little blackboards bearing the boys’ names and the wrist bands on ‘Thank You’ cards for each boy to take away and keep after the event are such lovely touches.
By the time Riz had finished the set-up, our living room and dining room (you do need a fairly ample space – especially for 4 ‘tents’) looked totally cute and amazing. We’re talking ‘Neverland-esque’, ‘everything-children-probably-dream-of’ special. Real ‘wow’ factor when you first see it.
And then, once the set-up is done, she’s off again, leaving us to enjoy the sleepover party.
And enjoy they did. The boys each had a friend to stay. Treats were consumed, films were watched and games were played. Not much sleep was actually had… by anyone… but we assume quite a of of fun was, and that’s the point really isn’t it?
The next morning, Riz returns and dismantles everything swiftly and efficiently. Again, no effort required from us at all.
The boys had a lovely time. Our youngest already wants Riz and her Teepees Tents and Treats back for his next birthday.
In my opinion, Teepees Tents and Treats is a wonderful, effort-free alternative to the usual ‘sleepover’ party. Something really magical and memorable. If you’ve got children, it’s definitely worth a look.
