It's not a birthday party but just a get-together for parents, is this possible?

We held our daughter’s 2nd Birthday party at Smile Cafe and it was PERFECT! The whole party ran smoothly and this was down to the organisation of the staff! The food was fresh and plentiful! There was even spare food for the adults to nibble on. The softplay was clean and perfect for our age of children (we had a range from 1 to 4). We were allowed to use the outdoor play area after the party and we spent another hour exploring the play equipment. I would highly recommend Smile Cafe for a 2nd Birthday Party.Rachel
We had my little boy’s 1st birthday party here and we had a great time. The staff were so accommodating and friendly. They had thought of everything so we could enjoy the party with everyone else knowing things were taken care of. Food was plentiful and fresh. The room and soft play was the ideal size. We have been to the cafe before so knew what to expect but the party still exceeded our expectations, mainly down to the staff – thank you so much, a lovely time had by all.Sarah
