When Hetal Met Rachel – Winstanley House
In July, Rachel and I had a our first meet up at Marabel restaurant on Allendale Road, Leicester, She treated me to a cucumber Gin cocktail! How apt!
Rachel got in touch with me in June 2017 following a Facebook post on a group called Babies and Bumps. I was asking for people wanting some free party planning services ready for my new business.
Rachel had already begun planning Sophie’s Party, She had already booked the entertainer – Super sparkle parties, booked Livi lollypop the face painter and had a photographer and videographer and cake maker she had previously used and was happy with. Along with the Venue the Newly opened stunning Winstanley House.
Together we went to Winstanley House twice, once when it was still a building site and once when it was all completed. What a difference its such a beautiful venue.
I shared the responsibility with Rachel, Liaising with suppliers, Amy from Winstanley Hall, Livi lollypop the face painter, Pristine Events for the popcorn machine, Moments Balloons who supplied the most beautiful 3ft round confetti balloons.
Sunday December 17th 2018 – Winstanley House
Today was D day the party I had been prepping for months had arrived. From ordering fairy wings for the back of the chairs, going from shop to shop to try and source the best possible decoration for the feature table and spending a small fortune on all the pretty decorations.
Rustling up pom poms, assembling paper lanterns, making tassles, using my cricut machine to cut some cute fairies and unicorn and making some personalised bunting. The list goes on.
I arrived at the venue at 9.30am super early, we had access to the Pavillion Room all day so I was going to take my time and make it all perfect for Sophies Party.
I am so glad I did as dressing the room took me longer than I thought and I was pleased I had prepped as much as possible before.
The party went really well. The full album from Sophies party can be viewed in the gallery or please Click Here.
