Attending a princess’ ball or fairy tea party can go from fantasy to birthday party reality with help from FairyTale Character Parties. Helmed by a group of ladies with an affinity for donning royal dresses and curtsying, the party service ventures to homes and outdoor areas equipped with a number of games, prizes, and goodie bags. Each party is led by a fairy-tale actress dressed as the birthday child’s favorite movie princess who excitedly hosts dance parties, nail-painting segments, and Q&A sessions discussing royalty and parliament governing procedures. FairyTale staff can also take full control of party needs by bringing their own decor and furniture, setting up and taking down all items, and cleaning up after the party guests.
Tired of working two part-time jobs at a fast food joint and a waste management company, Heart2Heart Soul Food Catering's owner and founder decided to make a change. Instead of struggling through jobs she didn't love, she chose to follow her passion: catering. Specifically, she wanted to share the distinctive, heart-warming flavors of soul food. She's built the company's southern-style barbecue spread around a trio of signature items. Her meat marinade leaves slow-cooked barbecue tender and juicy, and her honey-baked beans are jarred ready to eat. Finally, the Heart2Heart barbecue sauce imparts a sweet kick when slathered atop sandwiches or steeped with mild teas.
