Happy 6th Birthday Wilf!

It's not exageration to say that this day 6 years ago was the best day of my life. I became a mum and as cheesy as it sounds I felt like I'd finally become 'me'. I'm not trying to rose tint motherhood, its bloody hard sometimes but its the very best thing thats ever happened to me and I have my little boy to thank for making me a mother.

If you want to read Wilf's Birth Story then you can read it here.

Fast forward six years (6 years!) and I now have a beautiful, thoughtful, silly, kind boy with a mischeiveous glint in his eye and a current obsession for writing stories about poo (tell me your 6 year olds are the same?!)

This was the first year we gave Wilf an actually 'proper' birthday party. Years 1-4 were spent mainly with my antenatal group and a few bottles of cava whilst our kids happy played around us. Last year was Wilf's first year at school but as he hadn't really made many close friends yet we had a little get together as our local forest school instead with the usual crowd.

So when I asked Wilf to come up with a list of people he wanted to invite to his birthday and realising it would finally involve school friends and people I didn't know I knew this was the year for a proper 'party'. We hired out a room at our local community centre and thankfully took up my friend Milla's kind offer to give the Adventure Team a go for entertainment. We are SO glad we did!

Having never hired entertainment (or thrown any kind of party) before I was nervous as to what it would entail. I am the most disorganised person ever and the thought of having to host something for people I didn't know gave me palpitations. I loved the idea of leaving that down to someone else ( The Adventure Team can also help with hiring a venue and catering if needed) and both adults and children were entertained from start to finish.

I have to say I often cringed at the thought of children's entertainers thinking that they will be over the top or patronising, these guys couldn't be further from that idea though. More 'adventures' than entertainers anyway Another thing I loved about the team were that they really got down to the kids level and were so inclusive. Especially with the children who were initially timid and who by the end were throwing themselves around and giggling with the others.

The bespoke service starts right from the start with a video message sent to everyone on your invite list inviting their child to the party. Wilf chose a Safari theme and so the video was tailored to the theme he had. Seeing the video we knew from the start it would be brilliant!

I don't want to give too much away about the story and adventure that they are taken on but hopefully the pictures speak for themselves! The whole experience was so thought out and felt really personalised with little touches like Wilf winning a T Shirt at the end and being able to play the didgeridoo (I totally had to google how to spell that).

We can't thank the Adventure Team enough for making Wilf's birthday so so special. I'm actually going to be running a competition in the new year so win one of their parties so keep your eyes peeled for that. If you are Bristol or London based do check them out if you are in need of a brilliant children's party!

We also made a little video as I was doing Vlogmas on this day if you want to watch!

Wilf's party was gifted to us by my friend Milla and the Adventure Team but we honestly can't recommend them enough and already planning on booking for next year!
