Slumber Squad is a local business that will come to your house and set up the most drool-worthy sleep over set ups you could ever imagine. The best part is they do ALL of the work! I can’t wait to tell you all about our experience with Andrew’s first sleep over.
January birthdays are tough in New England. You are forced into indoor activities and in the covid era, everyone has different comfort levels. Our tradition for Andrew has always been a water park, but without the kids fully vaccinated, I worried that we wouldn’t have been able to fully relax.
Since Andrew was turning 10, we thought it was the perfect age for his first slumber party. I had heard about Slumber Squad through a friend who had nothing but goods things to say about them.
Slumber squad has so many fun themes to choose from such as an enchanted garden, unicorn theme, mermaid or even Harry Potter. Click here to see the endless options.
The DIY tent set up costs $60 per tent, or you can pay a little more for luxury slumber tent where they set it up for you.
Andrew is head over heels about video games, so when I saw that Slumber Squad had a Gamer’s option, I knew we had to go that route.
Since his room had a lack of space, we didn’t do a full slumber party set up although those look amazing. We just did the gamer add-on for $200. We also paid $50 extra for the set up.
Lucie was so easy to work with. She happily came over and set it up while Andrew was still at school so I could surprise him when he came home. She didn’t let me lift a finger. It took less than an hour for her to set everything up and I could not wait to see it myself!
The set up blew me away. There were four gamer chairs with their own side tables. A projector and large screen was set up. We could hook their Nintendo Switch, a DVD player, or really anything with an HDMI up to it.
There were fun throw pillows and lights that all added to the mood. I could not wait for him to get home and see it. As expected, he was over the moon.
Andrew helped me make nice favors for each guest. I found these small utility/ craft caddys at Michael’s. We filled them with a small Nerf gun, a Pez holder, a juice box and movie candy.
If you can find small red and white popcorn boxes, those are cute as well. A small flashlight would also be a great idea for a sleepover.
Andrew was so excited to welcome his friends over and start playing. They immediately settled in for a night of video games, junk food and Nerf wars.
Getting the boys to actually sleep was the hardest part. We thought they would at least sleep in the following morning, but they woke up at the crack of dawn to start playing video games again.
By noon, my house was covered in cheese balls and Nerf bullets. My husband and I felt like we were hungover, despite having no alcohol. But the kids had a great time and made some great memories.
Slumber Squad also has picnics and tea parties they can set up. In warmer weather, there are bell tents and boho canopies that can be set up outside. From spa parties to movie night, they have you covered.
Last but not least, don’t miss the add-on section listed under “Extras” where you can personalize pajamas or add on things like a breakfast crate or a candy bar. They have so many fun options to choose from.
I would highly recommend hiring Slumber Squad to make your sleepover spectacular. Not only does she do an amazing job, it was the easiest party we have ever had because I didn’t have to do anything! Visit their website for booking information.
