In the past few years, with technology turning to social media to share their interesting lives, birthdays, holidays and more, parents have sometimes found themselves under increasing pressure to constantly ‘up the ante’ at birthday parties. This can lead to some very stressful parents! With headlines in the news about tens of thousands of pounds being splashed out on children’s birthday parties, including charging no-show guests, booking a full petting zoo and getting Disney Princess look-a-likes to show up at your little one’s special day, you can get some fierce competition out there.
So in lieu of the countless overworked, stressed out parents who are constantly trying to think of new ways to wow their children and their peers, Robin has put together a few fantastic ideas that will make your party shine. You don’t always have to sell an arm and a leg to have a wonderful, meaningful party, so Cakes by Robin offer a number of first class solutions that help create visually stunning events that stick in your memory.
