Anyone who knows me will probably know that I love planning parties and celebrations. My first job for planning any type of party is coming up with a theme, and then it’s the invitation. I think that the invite really gives the first inkling of what a party is going to be like, so I always match it with the theme in some way. Read more
Party planning is one of my favourite things to do, so when I don’t have anything to plan, I feel a bit lost. I find one of the best parts is planning the food; I like to match the food to the party theme, and the first place I head to is Pinterest! There were so many brilliant ideas for Paw Patrol party food that I ended up using, but I came up with a few of my own too. I made the food labels myself using PicMonkey and then it just took a bit of time to assemble them. I always get so many compliments on the detail I put it in though, so it’s worth all of the time I spend doing it. Read more
I absolutely love planning parties; I think my favourite one so far has to be the joint one I planned for the boys earlier in the year, with a dinosaur theme. Don’t get me wrong, it would be so much easier and less stressful to host a party somewhere, where everything is provided and taken care of for you. But I love the satisfaction of knowing I planned something from the off, and I just love getting creative.
I do like products that make planning a bit easier though and last year for Jacob’s 3rd birthday I reviewed some minion partyware and pre filled party bags from Party Bags & Supplies. They went down well with both J and the party-goers and I thought they were really good value for money. Read more
Do you have a Paw Patrol fan in your house? We do, both boys are obsessed with it and must watch it at least once a day; if it’s not watching it, then it’s playing with their Paw Patrol toys. They also love biscuits. And they also love
making a mess helping in the kitchen, so the other day we quickly made these Paw Patrol biscuits (animal footprint biscuits really, disguised as Paw Patrol, because that makes it more fun!).
There are only 3 ingredients and you don’t really need to do much, though an adult should melt the chocolate of course. For those that have a fear of mess in the kitchen (ahem), this is pretty mess free too (unless your 2 year old decides to dip his fingers in the chocolate and smear it on his face). We made 8 biscuits, but you can make as many as you like of course – they would be great for a Paw Patrol themed party! Read more
Last month it was the boys’ 2nd and 4th birthdays and so I held a joint dinosaur party for them. As soon as I decided on the theme I was straight to Pinterest for ideas and I found some brilliant ones – I could have done so much more but I just didn’t have the time! Nonetheless, I was pretty pleased with how it all came together, especially after pretty much pushing blogging aside for the week prior, to concentrate on party preparation.
This is how it all came together… Read more
This is the year that I find myself organising the fourth birthday party in a row, only this time it will be a joint one for the boys. It will be Jacob’s 4th, and Noah’s 2nd. As we are now living in a house with plenty of outdoor space, I wanted to make this birthday special for the boys and have a party with a bouncy castle! (Though I’m not sure whether that’s for the adults or children)… Read more
