ChillaxBBQ does kid’s birthdays now…
Now there’s a first. We had a brief from the clients Iain and Clair, that their daughter, Ottie, was turning 4 and she loves Jellyfish. Now that is one brief and a half haha. It was supposed to be 15 kids and 10 adults but turned in to 20 or so kids and approximately the same number of adults. It’s sort of how we like it. Baptism by fire. But we did it. We rocked (so we were told). So yes folks ChillaxBBQ does kid’s birthdays now…
Firstly to the crew; The Beard, Frankie Goes to OllieWood, #1 and Jhea. A couple of firsts for ChillaxBBQ does kid’s birthdays now… crew members as #1 was wearing Chef top for the 1st time, and I had him on the tools most of the party. Very proud of him as he nailed it. Jhea was the lone server, as we got let down by another of the crew. Was I worried? Absolutely not and she knocked it out of the, what an incredible Daddy-Daughter Day. Great work you two. Be proud of yourselves. Approximately 20 additional covers, and a member of the crew down, and look what you did. Just brilliant.
Another first for ChillaxBBQ do kid’s birthdays now…was Pocket Rocket in live action mode. She was a bitch to start off with, as she really wasn’t playing ball with lighting and staying alight. But after much perseverance from Frankie Goes to OllieWood (nice mate, nice), she started to perform well. Part of Ottie’s party commitment from us was to have the little ones able to make their own pizzas for us to then bake, Ollie to cut and plate, and Jhea to find them and serve back. What a cracking idea that was. Frankie Goes to OllieWood and #1 became the stars of the kid’s show, literally surrounded for most of the party. Great work boys.
Frankie Goes to OllieWood left early, just in time to get his brother from the airport with his 2 little kids. Clearly a glutton for punishment. “I need more kids, PLEASE!!!”
The other big surprise for Ottie was that I had had a creative moment related to her passion for jellyfish. A few Tigers in one day I came up with the concept of a beach scene food diorama. A bit of a Heston idea. Literally, everything would be edible. How about that idea? Both Claire and Iain were in complete agreement. This was agreed on via this scribble on a napkin. How to put this into reality and prove that ChillaxBBQ does kid’s birthdays now… ?
