Puddles threw the most amazing pirate birthday party for my three year old son. It was so helpful to have Aleks arrange absolutely everything - venue, activities, food, party bags - as I had had another baby a few weeks before. There was the perfect balance of unstructured activities (eg face painting, bubbles) games, and even a treasure hunt, to keep a group of 12 three year olds occupied and entertained. Food was healthy and enjoyed, the entertainers were brilliant, and the venue (the old Wolves Lane Garden Centre) a perfect treasure island. I couldn’t recommend it more highly!

Absolutely love Puddles. In every regard, they are fantastic and a complete revelation. I was about to leave the next day to go to Asia on business and she just took over the whole operation with bubbles, treasure hunts, fab food, entertainment and above all, a brilliant attitude. I highly recommend them and would definitely use them again. Thank you Aleks, you are a total star!
I wasn’t sure what to expect when we booked this as i had never been to any party like it. We were all blown away at what a great party it was at the Wood green venue. the children were so excited to be looking for treasure and the face painting and balloons were a lovely bonus. Captain Aleks and Josh were excellent entertainers and party organisers which made for a stress free party for us. Would highly recommend - my 4 year son old and his friends had an amazing time and all the parents complimented us on the fun and novel party idea!

Aleks is a godsend, totally taking care of everything so that I could just enjoy everything with the birthday boy! It was the perfect length of party, with so much packed in!

Aleks and Captain Josh are so gentle and considerate with the kids too, never shouting or scaring them, even though they’re scary pirates! One of the little ones was afraid of big scary Captain Josh but he blew some bubbles and soon made friends! :)

Everything was such a massive hit, from the toasting marshmallows to the face painting, the treasure hunt and making pizzas, dancing, games and finally cake! There were even goody bags from the lovely pirates!

I can’t say enough good things about Puddles or recommend them enough!

Aleks was amazing. She took all the stress out of the day which meant I could just enjoy myself and did not have to worry about anything. I was amazed at how many activities she managed to fit in for the children. The other parents also commented on how Aleks and Captain Josh were the first children’s entertainers they had met who did not feel the need to shout (I personally cannot stand those shouty parties!!!!). Toasting marshmallows was a massive hit, followed by face painting, treasure hunt, making pizzas, dancing, games and finally cake and a great goody bag from the lovely pirates. Everyone loved it and I couldn’t recommend Puddles enough! Thank you! Now the only problem is, how do we top this for Max’s 5th birthday?!?!?!”

Thank you so much to you and your team today. You did an amazing job. Yasmin and all her friends had a fantastic time. I have had lots of messages about what a marvellous party it was. It was a day to remember.
— Leila, Yasmin's mum
It was fantastic and I think Zac and all the kids had a great time. I had some really positive comments from the other parents too. Keep up the good work!
— Nicola, Zac's mum
I booked the first ever celebration for my daughter with puddles and was not at all disappointed. Aleks was professional, accommodating and just lovely from the first meeting and throughout the planning process up to the big day. Ours was an unorthodox celebration and I had a lot of requirements that were not your run of the mill party requests, and Aleks was absolutely brilliant at tailoring the party to be exactly how I wanted. The end result was one of the most memorable days; the children were engaged, involved, and thoroughly entertained. The parents were able to sit back and relax and the catering was perfect too.
I’m still getting compliments about how brilliant the day was - even though I barely lifted a finger! I can’t recommend Aleks enough
— Mariam, Khadijah's mum
I cannot recommend Puddles enough. Aleks and her team managed the whole process so that not only did I have very little to do, but my son and his friends had an absolutely brilliant time. They loved the treasure hunt and the games, the food was very high quality and well presented and the team who hosted the party were fantastic. I was really thrilled and my son is still talking about his “brilliant” party three months later.
— Sarah, Gabriel's mum
You and your pirates and fairies put on an absolutely wonderful party for our two boys’ 3rd and 6th birthdays at the amazing Wolves Lane Palm House. It was great to be able to party in such an awesome location - a real hidden treasure in Haringey.

The Puddles team were totally brilliant, they sorted out our gang of 20 kids really capably and with great enthusiasm and energy, keeping them active and occupied and super-excited through the whole party, with singing and games and treasure hunts and bubbles, as well as a proper sit down party tea.

You really welcomed us, and it was so great to be able to enjoy the party without worrying about the arrangements - we so appreciated being told “leave it to us, everything is ready, there’s nothing for you to do!”

We were so impressed that you all not only kept the party going from strength to strength but also seemed to remember everybody’s names, treated the kids kindly and patiently, and looked after everyone big and small with good humour and happy smiles. You put in so much work, and the attention to the little details like the welcome board with balloons at the venue, the party decorations and all the other nice touches were so lovely!

Our guests (including, importantly, Granny and Grandpa!) we delighted and impressed by the amazing location, and by Puddles’ impressive organisation and dedication, I’ve no hesitation in recommending Puddles team wholeheartedly, you made our birthday celebrations really special and gave us memories to treasure! We’ve been looking at our (quite terrible!) photos from the day and giggling!
