I'm a shift worker who'll find any (and all) excuse to celebrate with family and friends and loves the serendipity of road trips. Living in Brisbane and trying to look at it like a tourist.

I love to organise parties with a theme. For any occasion. Picking themes, colours and menus, writing lists and shopping. Love it all.

Hosting a child's party - with the tears and tantrums that come with Pass the Parcel and Pin the Tail on the Donkey, negotiating with the child that wants to monopolise everything and coaxing the child that resists participating - well, that's a different story.

A party with Bellydancing Parties by Shahara, however, was an absolute joy, from the organising stage through to the time the last guest left.







Now, I don't believe for a minute that Princess Shahara's parties are just for primary-school aged children. For 90 minutes, Shahara also had parents and older girls enthralled as she entertained the children. Princess Shahara danced, produced costumes (scarves and belts for girls, bandanas and swords for boys), taught bellydancing steps, led the children in a dance, and engrossed the audience with storytelling and pantomime.





There is an interval for the children to have some refreshment and a break, before heading back on their adventure to the Birthday Princess' Palace.



It's a multicultural, educational and interactive party experience, and lots and lots of fun.

Once Shahara has organised the children for a perfect party photo (still in costume) and said her farewells, there's time for present giving, party food, pinata and cake before the little darlings head home.

Our food table was decorated with bowls of gardenia and magnolias, lillies, pomegranates and pink castle pinata, with food in a pink and white theme. For older children or adults, it could be easily - deliciously - themed for Middle Eastern style food.



Let's face it though - primary school aged kids really don't care about the little details!

Princess Shahara holds a Blue Card to work with children, and her rapport with the children was wonderful. Each Bellydancing with Princess Shahara party have a limit of 25 participants.

Filled with colour, music and a journey to distance palaces in Arabian deserts, Bellydancing Parties with Shahara will truly take you on a magic carpet ride.
