A magical Alice in Wonderland party (on a budget)

Magical Alice in Wonderland Party on a Budget

A couple of weekends ago it was Arabella's Alice in Wonderland party and let me tell you, this one was the most last-minute, budget-friendly party I've ever done. That's really saying something too, because I always leave parties until the last minute and I always try to spend as little money as possible. This Alice in Wonderland party had the ...

You’re invited to a night owl slumber party

Night Owls Slumber Party Invitations

Sorry, that headline is a bit misleading. You're not actually invited to the night owl slumber party. But some Badoo friends are. Lucky kids. You can tag alone virtually if you like?

How to host a Glow Party – Let’s Glow Crazy!

Glow party ideas

My youngest Badoo turned seven on Saturday, which surely makes me the oldest mother on the interwebs. Like any year in a Badoo's life, we didn't let the passing of the six onto the seven go unnoticed. She wanted a hip hop party and we decided to make it glow as bright and shiny as a Badoo. Which is very bright and shiny indeed. So, let me tell ...

Well, Cappers wanted a Fiji theme, which we successfully turned into 'island party ideas' and then morphed into ...

Lottie’s fabulous fashion palooza

Fashion party palooza

When I posted the invitations to Lottie's fashion palooza, I mentioned that I was struggling with the whole concept of a 'fashion' party for a six year old. And only just-turned six at that! I thought long and hard about how to pull off a party that was suitably grown-up in Badoo's eyes, but not too creepy for the rest of us. I think I managed ...

DIY Flower garden party invitations

On Sunday, Cappers and I had a lovely time making the invitations for her 8th birthday party. She's asked for a 'flower garden party' so we made tissue paper flower invites to spread the party word. I found the idea at inchmark.I confess that I'm rather thrilled to be putting together a flower garden party. It's such a lush sort of theme, don't you ...

A very merry unslumber party

Merry slumber party

It's true that I am something of a mad woman, but even I knew that having an unslumber party for a seven year old's birthday party was a little bit nuts. Especially when certain circumstances conspire to mean you will be running said slumber party after just 3 hours sleep the night before. In our defence, we thought just two girls were sleeping ...
