National Storytelling Week Party Ideas

Posted by Holly 31/01/2017 0 Comment(s)

National Storytelling Week takes place in storytelling clubs, theatres, museums, schools, hospitals, spoken word venues, and care homes. Where the events take place, the web of stories will be spun with sufficient magic between the breathe of the teller and the ear of the listener.

National Storytelling Week is celebrated by all ages. Folk tales, fairy lore, figments, phantoms, dragons, serpents, storms at sea. A good teller will conjure intriguingly.

We've put together our top ideas for when you need a celebration to tell a story.  Whatever the nature of the party and the age of the guests, we have a theme that will suit it, beautifully.  From eye catching accessories and tableware to fantastic bunting, cake stands and decorations. 

There's always a little bit of Luck and Luck at the heart of every wonderful celebration.

1. Alice in Wonderland: Alices adventures were first published way back in 1865 and its hard to believe that after all this time, the story grows in popularity. It tells of a girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures

2. Peter Rabbit - created by the late Beatrix Potter - a fictional character in various stories including The Tale of Peter Rabbit. The modern TV version of Peter Rabbit continues to inspire children with the love of Peter and his friends adventures.


3. Fairytale/Princess - A fairy tale is a type of short story that typically features folkloric fantasy characters, such as dwarves, elves, fairies, giants, gnomes, goblins, mermaids, trolls, unicorns, or witches, and usually magic or enchantments. Fairy tales may be distinguished from other folk narratives such as legends and explicitly moral tales, including beast fables. The term is mainly used for stories with origins in European tradition and, at least in recent centuries, mostly relates to children's literature. (Sourde wikipedia) - the Truly Fairy range is the perfect range for all those who loved enchanted fairies.


DIY tips:

If you want to add your own touch to the celebrations, why not put together a personalised and themed 'storybook' with pictures and annotations to celebrate the event or the life of those celebrating, which can become a keepsake. 

For younger guests, let them come as their favourite characters to interact in their own 'Once upon a time'; make your own themed piñata.
