Having first established in 1990, Glenelg icon Fairy Bay has relaunched their company into an online office and made their party service completely mobile.
On Thursday night we drank pink fairy-floss champagne as a heard of fairies fluttered around us and expressed their excitement for the next step of Fairy Bay’s entertainment opportunities.
About a month ago, Miss Fairy decided it was time to spread her wings (literally) and bring her infamous fairy parties to all the children of Adelaide.
“Fairy parties have changed,” says Marree, 26 (Miss Fairy). “When I had my party [at the old store] when I was five I had six friends, and we sat in the room without our parents. Now, everyone wants to join in. Parents want to be involved and have parties with a whole class.”
“Over the years it became a space issue, but also people wanted us to come to them. We’d go to houses or parks or I’d hire venues for them. It’s just a change in what people would expect for these kinds of parties.”
Marree is also excited about activating Glenelg in a different way by supporting local businesses and using their space (sure to be filled with glitter in no time). She’s worked closely with the City of Holdfast Bay to make her dreams come true, and bookings are already bursting at the seams.
As well as fairies, the organisation has mermaids, superheros and princesses (we’re talking a whole lot of Elsa’s). All you have to do is go online, choose whatever character your child just HAS to meet, and you’ll shortly receive an email with more information. Super simple and easy for all parents.
I spent the evening gushing about my favourite Disney movies and how wonderful it must be to wear a pair of wings to work. “I’m so passionate about this and I want to be the fairy that every kid’s parents call upon for these parties,” says Marree.
