MANDY - We booked Anna for our daughters 10th birthday party that she wanted at home...Anna was exceptional with some fantastic games and entertainment which was easily tailored to suit several of the children with various forms of special needs. Our daughter wanted a party at home and Anna allowed us to keep that home party atmosphere...but without the stress!!! Several of the children said it was the best party they had every been to! Highly recommended! Thanks Mandy and Steve, Bournemouth.
DEBORAH - I booked Anna after seeing her listing on Netmums. From start to finish Anna was very friendly and accommodating and offered me some great advice as this was my first time planning a children's party. I asked for a Pirate themed party for eighteen four & Five year olds mainly consisting of boys. On the day Anna was very punctual and set up very quickly and soon got control of the by then very noisy and boisterous party goers. Anna soon had them all quiet, sat down and listening - an amazing feat. Anna played lots of Pirate themed games with plenty of prizes and kept the children completely entertained for the whole hour she was there. The children all said they enjoyed playing the games, which included walking the plank & musical Islands. Anna also set up a lovely opportunity for me to take some photos of all the children together at the end of her session. I would definitely recommend Anna if you are having a children's party and are thinking of hiring an entertainer.
ANNA - I booked Anna recently for my daughters 3rd Birthday party following good reviews on Net Mums. She was 'absolutely fabulous' all the way through. I initially spoke to her on the phone and I knew from that moment on (even though I did contact other entertainers) she was the one for the job. She was happy to spend time discussing what I wanted and explaining what she could provide and was understanding about including a child with Special Needs. On the day of the party Anna arrived with lots of props and the children, particularly my daughter, really enjoyed it. There was real variety in the types of games (pass parcel, fairy garden, island hopping, fishing etc ) and the parachute was a big hit!! Anna was fantastic with the children (a mix of boys and girls) and included everyone. She encouraged them all to participate and have lots of fun in a relaxed and friendly way. Thank you so much Anna you made the party really special and come highly recommended. I honestly was so impressed and having spent 9 years as a primary school teacher myself (who is often hard to please when it comes to children's stuff) that is a huge compliment.
CLAIRE - I booked Anna from Absolutely Fabulous Parties for my daughter's 6th birthday party at home. She had been recommended to me by a friend who had booked her previously. She was a real god send. She arrived with 2 boxes of party props and prizes and her ipod player. She was brilliant with the children, calm and fun. She did non stop games with them in the lounge while I got on and prepared the food. I popped in now and again and they seemed to have a wonderful time, all winning various prizes. I couldn't believe how calm and relaxed I was. I would very much recommend Anna. I was tempted to get her to do the food too..! I hear she can bring individual lunch boxes and can provide party bags also. What's not to like?
CARA - I saw Anna and Absolutely Fabulous parties advertised on NetMums and thought I would give them a go for my sons 5th birthday party. I had invited the whole of his class, and the thought of entertaining 30 children terrified me. Anna was amazing, she took the time to find out what interested my son and what sort of party we wanted. The games were themed around my sons interests, which for a child who has Aspergers was a dream come true. All the children at his party were enthralled for a whole hour, and the feedback from them and the parents watching was that the party was great. I would highly recommend Absolutely Fabulous parties, my son and his friends had a great time, and I was able to sit back and watch them enjoying themselves, a real treat!!
ANNE - My son wanted a party at home and after seeing the advert in primary times i decided to try Anna at absolutely fabulous parties. The booking and communication prior to the party was very good. From the moment Anna started entertaining the children there was constant laughter - the children enjoyed every minute. It is your choice as to what Anna provides for the party. She will provide the prizes, food, party bags and even a craft activity if you wish. I was thrilled with the party and would have no hesitation in recommending Anna to anyone
RACHEL - Emily really enjoyed herself and asked if 'the lady can come round again'!! Will definitely recommend to any friends looking for party entertainment :)
