The party idea stemmed from Charlie's love of dream catchers and so, with the help of stylists at party and events marketplace, Lenzo, a 'muted and dream-like' slumber party was born

‘We mean, who can blame her when just in the images, you can see how ecstatic Charlie is.’

And the best part of it all was that the setting itself provided all the entertainment! 

‘Don’t plan to many activities for the kids, they love being able to do their own thing and just muck around together!’ Kas said, who has since shared the stunning photographs she took of the event. 

‘Keep it simple and they will have a ball.’
