Working with Little SAFFA kitchen
From the first time Dan met Kerry ( aka little SAFFA kitchen) he said there was something special about her. At this point I had only ever spoken to her on email as I do all our bookings and she had booked a party with us. At her party she was fun, organised and embraced a good childrens party ! We felt so lucky when she started working with us a few months later as we knew she had the same work ethic as us and that she always does the absolute best she can possibly do. Kerry now caters for our childrens party venues in Chessington and Raynes Park.
Making customers happy
Kerry has a vast amount of experience. She has worked in the restaurant industry in South Africa for many years before opening her own catering company in SA and then moving to the UK to do the same. She has grown her business from scratch in the UK where she now caters for us at bounceagogo children’s parties and even by making all our kids and adult food (menu) but also has trained to be a cake maker and decorator and makes many children very happy every week with her wonderful birthday cakes. I know this makes her very happy. To add to that she can supply your party bags as well. She also does buffets privately for kids parties.
women supporting women
What has been one of the biggest highlights for me has been that us two women and mums in business get on so well (even our kids are mates) and are able to bounce ideas off each other and give each other support and praise. Our relationship is so positive! I always see Kerry’s cakes when she’s finished them ( sometimes I see lots of the stages of creation ) and its a real privilege to be part of the process. I love it when customers let me know how they loved the food or the cakes she has made.
mums know best
Being able to bounce ( pardon the pun) ideas about parties and menus with another mum who understands what mums are looking for from their childrens party is so nice! its productive too and we have been able to devise a whole adult menu based on what we think our guests would like at a party whilst maintaining a reasonable price range. You can order through us www.bounceagogo.co.uk for your party an extensive range of home made cakes as well as savoury foods. Kerry can also provide cupcakes for the kids or adults in the widest variety of yummy flavours I have ever seen !
food is social
Food we feel is really important at a childrens party. All our parties are catered which takes the stress away from you making the food . A lot of planning has gone into our menu and it gives the kids the right balance of fresh quality colourful food with a few party treats added. What is most important is that we make all our buffets a sharing experience by making them finger foods. This means all ages are welcome to the party to eat ( from babies to adults) but also the food part of the party remains a social experience. We know all too well some kids don’t sit to eat, some kids will walk off after 5 minutes , some will still be eating 20 minutes after everyone else has left the table. We don’t mind its that laid back approach which entices more of your family and friends to join in at food time at our parties, its a sharing experience.
special birthday cake moments
We also make the birthday cake a special moment at our parties. We always have the kids sitting ready and waiting in anticipation for the cake. This means not only does the little birthday person feel really special but everyone is excited about the cake coming out. It is magical when everyone wants a photo so you cannot rush the moment. We wanted it to be different at bounceagogo where the cake IS definitely special. Whether you make the cake yourself or ask Kerry to make you a cake we will treat it with the magic it deserves.
