Regular readers of mine may know that I love planning a party; up until this year, Jacob has had one every year since his first birthday. The only reason neither of them had one this year was because we were going on holiday at the end of their birthday month, so we didn’t have the budget for it; that was their birthday treat really, a week long one!
Once I’ve got my planning head on there’s no stopping me, so I like to think of myself as a bit of a pro. I like to do the majority of stuff myself; making invites, theming the food, making items for party bags and so on. If anyone would like to request my services in the future, I’m down for that 😉 If you are looking to plan your own party though, I have some top tips for you. Read more
It’s almost Christmas party season, and you’ll have probably spent many an evening already searching for the perfect festive outfit for the night. If you were going to organise a Christmas party for your friends and family too, you might have missed the boat on bookings for most hotels, restaurants and venues. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t still have an amazing party at home with these unique and fun ideas. Read more
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
