11 Million birthdays

We have 11 million children in the UK. All of them have Birthdays. Probably half of them have Birthday Parties. Frog in the Field has been set up to help the parents of these 5.5 million children to cope with the undeniable stress that a Birthday Party can cause.

We always seem to think about this time of year as the start of the party season. In reality there are Birthdays every day, so how do we make them different and special for our children? In Monmouthshire alone there is a wealth of professional companies ready to assist with your party plans. Caroline Davies founded Frog in the Field a year ago with her mission being to revolutionise the party bag. She works from the family farm in Newcastle, just outside Monmouth.

“I wanted to make a difference, only last month, my children came home from a party with a plastic bag full of sweets. This is everything I’m against. It’s so nice to give children a bag of quality gifts that they will treasure and re-use time and again.”

Frog in the Field has an easy to use e-commerce website (www.froginthefield.co.uk) with recommendations for age suitability and always a few special offers. While we do have an exclusive Limited Edition Prestige Range, we offer very competitive prices on our standard Party Bag range and cater for every budget and taste. With prices for complete pre-filled party bags from just £2.95 there has to be something for everybody.

We have customers from Edinburgh to St. Albans and get some weird and wonderful enquiries. The largest party bag order was for 52 guests at a 2nd Birthday Party and we’ve recently quoted for 50,000 party bags for a chain of restaurants based around London.
Customers often give us feedback, our favourite is from Mrs Parker of Kent: “Thank you so much! Am so pleased I took your advice! Will be back for my sons bday in sept – guaranteed!”

Where did our name come from? Some years ago our family were playing ‘I spy’ in the car. My daughter Jasmine was too young to know her alphabet, and shouted out ‘frog in the field!’ before bursting into giggles. We all laughed so much she would say it every time we played the game. When setting up my party bag business I wanted to think up a really quirky name and my husband said ” that’s easy, it has to be Frog in the Field.”

For a limited time only Frog in the Field is offering free delivery of party bags to all NP25 postcodes. This offer ends on 30th June 2007.

Frog in the Field have a Birthday Club on their website. Sign up and your children will receive a free electronic greetings card on their birthday!

Other companies we are delighted to be associated with are:

Ayres and Graces supply beautiful hand-made party invitations. Shirley Ayres also puts together bespoke memory albums perfect for Birthday, Christenings and Weddings.

Twins Things supplies all sorts of fabulous gifts and functional items for parents and grandparents of twins, and of course gifts for the little ones themselves.

Tick Tock put on a terrific hour of entertainment for pre-school children at Drybridge House each week, on Wednesdays at 11.15am. The children love it, the parents adore it.

Flora Fairies is a fabulous new business founded by Andrea Jones. She has negotiated a fantastic arrangement with Usk Castle so your little ones can have a fairy party in the castle. She will also come to your chosen venue if you prefer.

Hello FITF, Do i have the honour of being first to post on your blog?! That's quite exciting. A quick question, do you deliver to France?
Just got here from Dulwich Mum's blog, can't believe your husband cooked the pig. Shameful!

Frog in the Field said...

Indeed you are the first...Thank you.
Not only did my husband cook my pig while I was away, he had cooked it for my welcome home meal!
I don't think I will be half as entertaining as Dulwich Mum, but I'll try!
I'm sure I can deliver to France.
I would just need to get a quote from my courier, with parcel size, weight and destination address.

Ooo fab, i'll head on over to your website, it's my daughter's birthday at the end of June. Alas, you won't be retiring on the strength of my order, she will be 8 and i have kissed the enormous, sugar-charged parties good-bye and this will be a civilised, manageable sleepover. Hmmm, perhaps civilised manageable sleepover is an oxymoron...
