Aashiqa invited her besties over for a slumber party to help celebrate her very special birthday.
Pizza and sweet treats were served first whereafter we captured fun pics of the girls. The slumber squad (all kitted out with a personalised t-shirt), then made their way to Rush to work off some of the excitement - can you imagine 11 young girls together? LOL! #bravemom .....hahaha....they really were a very sweet bunch though and I am sure they chatted way into the night. :-)
Have a look at the beautiful setup and see below for Mom's thoughts on the event.
SleepySlumber was inspired by Aashiqa's 12th birthday experience at our home with 9 of her friends and younger sister Farheen. I wanted to make it really special and went all out and searched for some ideas and came across these amazing slumber themes. After a failed response from a sleepover party planner's services that I wanted to use, to setup the party, I decided lets do it myself. I went looking for fabric and designs to complete the teepees and Aashiqa styled them so beautifully. Aashiqa was so excited and full of ideas. I'm very proud of her creativity, spunk and confidence...definitely takes after her Dad lol.
Her friends were wowed by the teepee setup and so were the Moms, asking who, where, what party planner I used. Myself and Aashiqa were so chuffed and thought that this would be a great opportunity. The slumber party was a hit and the girls had a fabulous time and we thought lets create that same enjoyable experience for other girls too.
Before I knew it, we came up with the name and Aashiqa got her brother Faizaan to set up the "SleepySlumber" instagram, Facebook and gmail accounts. The website is being created too.
We are now pleased to offer from the 1st July 2018 the chance to host a fabulous slumber experience for kids aged 5-12yrs of age within the comfort and safety of your home.
OUR MISSION: To help busy parents create a teepee celebration with all the bells and whistles, convenience, fun, laughter and memories they will cherish forever.
There is no greater joy than making your kids feel happy and special and this is exactly how I wanted Aashiqa to feel on her Crown Birthday.
