It's taken a while for me to actually sit down and write this (June....everyone has a birthday in June!! ALL the cake!), but I just wanted to write a little FYI and a thank you of course, about our award!
Earlier this year, we won the Muddy Stilettos award for 'Best Children's Business' in Sussex- as some of you may know, Poppy's Parties is based in Haywards Heath (although we are expanding and now cover Surrey and London too!), and it really means a lot to be recognised by the wonderful community around us.
The Muddy Stiletto awards are particularly prestigious because...well, because they are pretty cool! Self-styled as 'The Urban Guide to the Countryside', the Muddies cover everything from the best coffee shops to...well, us!
It's a wonderful achievement to win something like this, as running a business can at times be really tough, gruelling and especially lonely- when you're doing something new, half the battle is getting people to put their trust in you to deliver a great party; after all, it's their child's birthday that they're trusting you with! So it just means a lot that we know we're going in the right direction and has given us that extra little sparkly boost we needed!
I'd like to take a moment to thank my wonderful team around me; all the amazing entertainers who really do put their heart and soul into every single party; my partner in crime Dan Lewis for keeping me going every step of the way; but most especially all of the parents who have taken the leap of faith and booked us, loved us and raved about us through reviews and word of mouth; after all, if it weren't for all of you then we wouldn't be here! In return I promise to spend this year coming up with even more new and exciting ways to make the parties pop, and here's to the Muddies 2019!
