About Us

We are Mrs Fox’s.

Once upon a time there was a crafty Mrs Fox.  She loved making things with and for her little foxes.  Out of this, and from her industrious little kitchen table grew a crafty business:

Mrs Fox’s especially loved throwing parties for her little uns.  Soon friends were asking for her help with their parties too.  So she created beautiful and unique themed parties for crafty children.  Mrs Fox’s builds a party around a theme that will inspire a child’s imagination; we can provide the bare minimum to the whole shebang!

Our bespoke service caters for children’s parties of any size.  We presently operate in the Hertfordshire and North London, but are always ready for a challenge.  Much of our own party-wares are lovingly handmade and we source the best quality, creative and designed goods from boutique suppliers. 

Mrs Fox’s will create a theme for you, or if you have an idea of your own we will work with you to turn it into the perfect party.  We will work closely with you to create a unique party for your child.  We can provide CRB checked entertainers to run the party or you can run it yourselves with one of Mrs Fox’s Party Boxes.  Our party boxes include everything you need to run your party, we give you tips and advice all delivered to your door.  

Mrs Fox’s on-line shop is a fabulous bazaar of hand-made children’s gifts, crafts and partywares.  

Mrs Fox's Party Boxes

Mrs Fox’s Crafty Boxes are designed to inspire your child, to unlock and expand their imagination.  Starting in Easter 2013 Mrs Fox’s has been creating themed craft kits for children delivered to their homes monthly.  Our imaginative boxes are jammed with crafty ideas – plenty enough to satisfy several small people at least.  We don’t like waste, we even include our packaging in many of the crafts and we like to use as many recyclable materials as possible.

To see just how crafty Mrs Fox really is seek out  Mrs Fox’s Handmade we sell on-line through Folksy.com and Etsy.com.

In all that we do Mrs Fox’s wants to help other parents have fun and encourage creativity in their children, without filling the world’s land-fills.  Where possible, her craft kits and party-wares use natural products, are biodegradable, recyclable or repurposed.  Her gifts are crafty, imaginative, keepsakes, a little nostalgic and lots of fun.  Mrs Fox does not claim that she will never, not ever, use plastics for example, but there will always have been care and consideration in her choices.

    Dear Mrs Fox,
    Thank you so much for providing such an excellent box of goodies for my daughter’s 3rd birthday fairy tea party. She and her eleven little guests had a marvellous time decorating fairy cakes, making fairy craft and unwrapping your ready-made pass the parcel game.
    The party table and decorations looked really magical. Several of the mums commented on the beautiful drawstring party bags.
    I loved your ideas and planning sheet, which took all the hassle out of arranging the party so I was able to play with the children and take lots of photos.
    I will certainly be contacting you again next year for another of your party boxes – theme as yet undecided!
