A couple of years ago I stumbled upon a photo of a sleep over set up that was absolutely stunning. Investigating a little more discovered it was the work of Teeparty. Started 4 years ago by Clare and Josette, two local mums who were inspired by a girl’s sleepover party in Sydney and wanted to bring these special teepee parties to Melbourne.
I asked Josette a couple of questions about why the love what the do…
We create teepee sleepover parties here in bayside for girls and boys aged 6-13. Each child gets their own teepee, with mattress, oversized doona, twinkle lights and decorative cushion. We can arrange all the bells and whistles from party invitations to the cake. We work with local business to offer this service. Including The Icing Artist, Partycles and we’ve recently started collaborating with Local Mum Jemma from Pretty Mama Beauty so we can offer a pamper package for girls to have a little innocent fun and have their nails painted, some stick on sparkles and a little natural facial.
What you love doing what you do? A number of mums have filmed their daughters coming home town surprise setup, their reaction of surprise and gratitude fills us with so much joy and happiness about what we do.
What do you love about being in Bayside? We’ve met so many local families and many of our clients have booked us to come back for another birthday or a sibling birthday. We love being so hands on in the business and being there to setup each teepee and add all special extra details.
