Guest Blog - NOTORiOUS KiDS at Hedsor House

NOTORiOUS KiDS recently visited the stunning Hedsor House and we were blown away by the venue and the infinite possibilities that the building and its surroundings have to offer for all types of events. Incredible spaces invite creativity and we couldn’t resist getting our heads together to conjure up some thoughts on the endless possibilities.

As children’s party planners we are always looking for new and amazing venues and spaces to offer our clients and Hedsor House is definitely one of them. When looking at venues we look for the size of the rooms, easy access to adjoining rooms and outdoor space. Hedsor House has all of this and more!

Here are a few ideas for different occasions and how to entertain your guests

WEDDiNGS

To invite children or not to invite children – that is the question. Here at NOTORiOUS KiDS we always say YES!!! Having children at your wedding can make it that extra bit magical and there are many ways to keep them entertained without having them tugging on your trouser leg mid speech. A summer wedding at Hedsor House lends itself to garden games out on the stunning South Lawn where children can run freely with our entertainers, or how about creating a Crèche area in the Boudoir or Drawing Room just off the Centre Hall with storytelling and crafts. Knowing the KiDS are being looked after and entertained will allow your guests to relax and ensure everyone is happy.

SUMMER PARTiES

With the stunning South Lawn Hedsor House screams summer parties and why not make it a family affair? Giant Garden Games to entertain old and young, adventurous treasure hunts led around the gardens by magical characters, Stalls with Traditional Games such as Hook a Duck, Hoopla and a Coconut Shy! Themes such as a Magical Midsummer Party with Fairy Folk, Traditional English Fair or a Summer Carnival would be perfect! So many fun possibilities!

BAT & BAR MITZVAH’S

Special occasions such as Bat/Bar Mitzvahs are perfect to host at Hedsor House. The stunning entrance and Centre Hall can be themed and dressed with so many possibilities. How about a Circus Extravaganza with Circus acts and a Ring Master welcoming guests as they arrive, fun ideas such as the Drawing Room used as a transformation studio where guests can get made over and come out via the Boudoir transformed, a hall of mirrors created in the staircase hall before entering the Ballroom would be so much fun! Or how about a Spy Party or Movie Mystery (a spin on Murder Mystery) where guests all have characters and they have missions to solve! Make up stations with makeup artists and nail technicians are always a hit at these events too as well as dancers on the dance floor encouraging guests to dance and teaching them funky moves!

BiRTHDAY PARTiES

We love a birthday party and adore creating tailor-made and bespoke experiences for our clients. Watching as the children grow up year after year and the different themes we can create for their new interest always excites us. The beautiful mezzanine in the Centre Hall is perfect to use to drape themed props and dressing off such as fishing nets with jellyfish to create an underwater party and life rings attached to the bannister as sea level. Sweetie tables as a special feature and themed costume characters can really bring the theme to life.

SEASONAL PARTiES

Seasonal parties are so much fun to create, occasions such as Easter with Egg hunts on the South Lawn with the Easter bunny, Halloween and a Wizards and Witches School in the Centre Hall, Christmas and a Winter Wonderland full of magical goings on! We cannot wait to start planning!

Hedsor House Summer Party with Mahiki At Home

BOOK YOUR TICKET TO The Summer party of the year...

Summer is fast approaching, and the Hedsor team are all patiently awaiting a few consecutive days of sunshine to convince us that its time to dust off our BBQs, update our summer wardrobes and sunbathe on the South Lawn.

We're super excited to be hosting our Annual Summer Party on Sunday 24th July 2016 in partnership with Mahiki at Home.

The Mahiki pop up’s have travelled the world bringing a little bit of paradise to the most prestigious fashion, music and lifestyle events and venues for the last decade. This summer we are opening our doors for the first ever Hedsor House Summer Party with Mahiki at Home

Hedsor House holds a reputation for being a playground for partygoers with many famous stars choosing to hold their bashes here. Mark Ronson's 33rd Birthday party was a particular favourite of ours! The 'blank canvas', creative and flexible approach to event management will allow the space to be transformed in to a wild, tropical oasis of fun. Expect delicious fresh fruit cocktails served from Tiki style bars, Hawaiian dressed staff, Polynesian inspired décor with tropical flowers adorning every corner.  

This very special garden party promises to be a little slice of paradise right on our south lawn at the exquisite Hedsor House with press and celebrities attending. Chill out on the South Lawn and enjoy the summer vibes... 

Don't miss out book your tickets....

 

For those wishing to re-create a ‘Mahiki at Hedsor House’ party for themselves taking complete ownership of the event, Hedsor is available for exclusive hire and will work with ‘Mahiki At Home’ to bring to life individual clients’ wishes. Our eleven guestrooms complete the package, meaning partygoers can now stay the night and need only to stagger up the grand staircase to bed in the early hours…

 

 

Throughout Hedsor House’s past it has always been a place to gather, celebrate, see and be seen. The owners mission is to deliver innovative experiences that are grand but not formal, to avoid country house clichés and to ensure events continue to be trend-setting and, above all, fun. We are able to pull off outstanding, and often unusual events, ensuring a memorable experience for our clients and their guests.
