Example 1: Birthday Poem for a Friend

Another year, another beer,

A friend I hold so dear,

A friend who shines a light through my darkest fears.


Laughter and silliness,

They have been our wisest guides,

Always smiling, side by side.


So, here’s to another year we face,

And I cannot wait to celebrate,

Another year of joy and play,

With my dearest mate, day by day.





Personalized Birthday Stories


Children love stories, so why not let them be a part of one! There are many ways do this. You could create a fairytale, incorporate their favourite story characters, or use storytelling to show them how amazing they are.

Get your creative muscles flexing, and create a charming story to celebrate their big day.

When creating a story for someone, it’s important to consider two things:

  1. Their personality traits
  2. Their hobbies

A child’s dream is to be the main character of a story. By tailoring the story to their unique traits and interests, you can make it extra special.

Real-Life Fairy Tale Stories

Another way to incorporate stories when celebrating a birthday, is by actually creating a real-life one! Organise a themed party, so they are living the story and not just reading it. Here are some ideas.

  • Enchanted forest: Set up a fairytale adventure in the garden. Make your child a birthday princess for the day, give her map and tell her she needs to follow the map to find the magic stone.
  • Murder mystery: Be part of a real life murder mystery, give everyone a character, one of them being the murderer. You all then need to find the clues and figure out who is the murderer.
  • Time Travel: Go back in time, this could be to the Ancient, Tudor, the 80s, 60s… any period you like! The world is your oyster. Create a story in your garden, set the scene, and time travel to another time.
  • TV Shows and Films: This theme is excellent for all ages, not just children. Is your friend a Bridgerton fan? Or Harry Potter? Grease? Stranger Things? Transform your garden or home into another fantasy world, and let you and your guests become all their favorite characters.
