Nurture Barn Party

Our funky party room has the wow factor.

It has been interior designed with a beautiful starry ceiling and is bright and fun and can be hired in 2 hour slots 6 days a week, exclusively or non exclusively. We have an Iphone docking base for you to bring your own music too.

Pls bring hellium balloons if you wish to have them tied on the back of chairs, as they are not supplied.

The room holds a maximum of 30 children and please note there is no seating for adults, so if you order platters this will be as a casual standing buffet.

PLS NOTE that for all parties, the 50% deposit is non refundable but any cancelled children charges incurred, can be swapped to your tab to spend on the day on food/drinks.

We know not every baby/toddler has a wide circle of friends so we are very flexible as to whether the money is spent on the children invited or the adults. Great for bigger family occasions where the bias is on the adults.

We receive lovely testimonials from relaxed parents after a party @ The Nurture Barn.

” I just wanted to say what an absolutely AMAZING time we all had yesterday!!  Mel your place is beautiful and you do such a wonderful job of hosting parties I didn’t have to do anything and was just floating about socialising.

Everyone that came have sent me messages today to say how delicious the food was and all the parents were particularly impressed with the children’s food baskets. Spencer had a lovely time and all the children enjoyed meeting the miniature ponies.

One other thing, your girls worked so so hard and were always so polite and pleasant even when they had a queue of my family asking for sausage sandwiches!!  We really had the best day.  Everyone was commenting on you in particular and how efficient, friendly and calm you were.  I honestly couldn’t have hoped for a better day for my special little man.  Thanks again so so much.  Thank you thank you thank you.”
