My Little Duke

Teepees and Turning 4!

Steph DukeComment

It was a weekend of birthday fun in our house as Phoebe celebrated her fourth birthday! I still can’t quite believe it, but here we are.

I was on the lookout for something a little different for Phoebe this year and when I came across local gal, Alanna on Instagram, I knew her Teepee’s were exactly what I’d been looking for!


Never heard of ‘The Teepee Tribe’? You can visit their website here.

But, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered too! I chatted recently with the owner about her new business venture … you can read our conversation below.


Q. Tell us a little about you and your family.

A. Hi my name is Alanna and I am a mum, wife and now the business owner of The Teepee Tribe!

Q. Why The Teepee Tribe?

A. After being a stay at home mum for three years I felt that I needed another focus in my life. I have always been a creative person and now I have found something that I am very passionate about. The Teepee Tribe has given me a new lease of life.

Q. What exactly is The Teepee Tribe?

A. The Teepee Tribe is a magical sleepover party! I come and set it up in your home and return the following day - it’s hassle free for parents.

Q. How long has your business been up and running?

A. I started the business the beginning of September and am so overwhelmed and thankful for how supportive everyone has been to help me get this little business off the ground.

Q. What has been your favourite part of the journey so far?

A. My favourite part has to be seeing the kids’ faces once they enter the room I have set up.

Q. What are you most looking forward to in 2019?

A. I’m looking forward to meeting more people and making more children happy. Oh, and I’m also excited about adding another new concept to the business for the summer … so watch this space!


Alanna very kindly gifted Phoebe her Unicorn Themed Teepee Party and I am incredibly grateful. Phoebe had the most magical afternoon with her 2 very best friends from school. She’s even already requested the Teepees back again for next year!! Hope you’re free Alanna?!


Currently The Teepee Tribe offer the following teepee packages (all of which can be viewed on their website):

Unicorn Tribe

Mermaid Tribe

Army Tribe

Sweet Dreams Tribe

Christmas Package ( I love this one!!)


I highly recommend Alanna for your next birthday party. She has made the whole experience completely hassle free for us as parents! Alanna will deliver and set up your teepees, then return to take them down and away the next day. Plus, the look on Phoebe’s face when she saw the room was just priceless.

Thinking of booking? Well boy, have I got good news for you!

Alanna is being ridiculously generous and giving someone a pretty awesome Christmas present. One of our followers will WIN a Teepee Package of their choice (for up to 4 people) - our gift to you this Christmas!! All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is enter the giveaway on Instagram.

Thank you once again to Alanna for helping me make Phoebe’s 4th Birthday such a special one! The three girls were spoiled rotten and had the best time together. It was unicorn-everything: unicorn cake, unicorn face paint, unicorn gifts, unicorn party treats, unicorn doormat (see first picture) and unicorn pjs for everyone!


Some of the finer details are listed below:

Pjs - Dunnes

Rainbow Unicorn Cake - M&S

Print - @sarahcameronart

Doormat - The Range

Chocolate unicorns - Tesco


Now I best go and deal with the fact that I now have a four year old!!
