It’s been nearly three days on, and we at My 1st Years HQ are still basking in the glow of last week’s royal festivities! Not only did we love watching the magic of the royal wedding unfold (how cute were the little page boys and flower girls?!) but on Thursday we also hosted our very first My 1st Years royal tea party… and well, what a party it was!
Held at the prestigious Lanesborough Hotel in London, the event was an opportunity to showcase our limited edition royal range to some of our famous friends as well as provide a fun and entertaining day for their little ones. Situated in the hotel’s main hall, the space was decorated in a sea of gold and white balloons, ornate ribbons and bright tulle, all creating a stylish and modern space, finished with fun activities for the little ones including face painting, soft play and arts and crafts!
To keep little guests entertained, the space was carefully set up with soft castles perfect for running around in and a crafty arts and supplies area for those young highnesses with a creative streak. There was also a face painter around to add a mystical touch to little (and big!) faces if they fancied it! For adults, there was a playlist of tunes in the background to keep them tapping away.
Guests were served handcrafted cupcakes finished with floral designs, freshly produced sandwiches filled with smoked salmon for adults or jam for kids and a range of soft drinks and mocktails. We mingled with a number of famous faces, including reality star, Binky Felstead and TV presenter Laura Hamilton, as well as several popular bloggers who were lovely enough to pass through! All in all, we had a wonderful day and it was so much fun being able to show off our special pieces in such a special way.
