"Fireflies ran my daughter's 9th birthday party and it was fabulous! I wasn't sure about holding an outdoor party in December but Fireflies were so keen and confident that all would be well and they were right! The cold weather did not bother the children at all and there is always shelter in the forest. It was a witches and wizards party and the children made potions, whittled and decorated wands and ate food cooked on an open fire. It was such a special day my daughter will always remember. 'Robin' and 'Snail' were absolutely lovely with all the children, giving them plenty of freedom to explore but also providing fun, structured activities to take part in."
"Wow what can we say. Today Jess and Sonia provided Pokemon forest school party for our 9 year old, it was absolutely fantastic. All the kids were smiling and happy, running around and roasting marshmallows. They climbed, built, swung, got messy and enjoyed being kids with added extras. absolutely fabulous and highly, highly recommend. Thank you so, so much"
"Jessica and Sonia did a fantastic job organising and hosting our six year old's birthday party. He and his friends had a brilliant time in their Forest School area, set up in the woods at Hinchingbrooke Country Park. There were hammocks, a rope swing, fun and games, and a fire pit for toasting marshmallows. They also organised an absolutely amazing birthday cake, and some lovely, plastic-free party bags. The whole thing was a huge success! We would definitely recommend Fireflies to anyone considering organising a child's birthday party - thank you Jessica and Sonia!"
