If you know first-hand how stressful planning a party can be, especially a child’s party, you’re not alone. Skye Edwards and Brittany Borries recently decided to take the stress out of planning and turn it into something fun and exciting, which is why they created Slumber Soiree.
Slumber Soiree offers a hassle-free, unforgettable sleepover experience. All you do is pick your theme for your party and Skye and Brittany take care of the rest. They set up in the comfort of your own home, then come back the next afternoon to take everything down. They are dedicated to making your event effortless and Pinterest worthy. Skye and Brittany are experienced in party planning and can guarantee your guests will have an amazing one-of-a-kind experience.
Slumber Soiree opened in February and the duo has been busy ever since. “As a mom of four, I know how stressful planning a party is,” said Skye. “I was constantly seeing other moms post online looking for affordable venue recommendations for their kids, so I started looking around for a new fun party option to bring to our area. I figured why stress over finding a venue when we can bring everything right to you in the comfort of your own home. As soon as this new idea popped in my head, I messaged my good friend Brittany Borries, who is known for throwing fun over-the-top birthday parties and asked her to join me on this new adventure, and to my surprise, she said yes! So, here we are. Some have even called us the dream team!”
What might surprise you is these parties are not just for kids. Slumber Soiree offers adult sleepovers for bridal showers, date nights or family gatherings. They also offer many add-ons such as popcorn machine and candy cart rentals, balloon garlands, personalized slumber party favors and more.
The goal for Skye and Brittany is to ensure you have a memorable time with your friends and family. They do this by using top-of-the-line equipment such as beautiful built teepees to cozy mattresses. Their equipment is designed to enhance your comfort, creating an enchanting ambiance that will keep you captivated throughout the night.
Skye and Brittany have many big dreams for Slumber Soiree. They want to expand and start offering services such as spa parties where they bring it right to you. “It has been a lot of fun coming up with unique ideas to make our parties the ultimate experience,” said Brittany. “I had been wanting to start some kind of party planning venture for a while, so when Skye reached out to me, I was in love!”
Another aspect the duo has enjoyed is teaching their kids the odds and ends of being an entrepreneur. “Our kids think we are the coolest moms ever and are constantly begging for their own sleepovers,” said Skye. “They also get to see us start a business from the ground up, and that is a rewarding feeling.”
Slumber Soiree currently serves the Joplin community and will travel up to a 60-mile radius for a small additional fee. Skye and Brittany are looking forward to continuing to grow Slumber Soiree in the coming years, offering new and exciting services along the way.
