Birthday party planning is the order of the day in our house
Uncle Jumbo’s is a yearly Christmas party that has been going since I was little. Even so, this was the first time I attended so Aidan and I essentially experienced the whole thing together.
Uncle Jumbo, Noddy and his friends from Toyland put on a show, along with Father Christmas, Tinkerbell, a marching band, and numerous other characters. here is what we thought about it with tips for the Newbies like us…
Rainbow party inspiration ahead… Rainbow’s are great for all ages, it’s simple yet fun and you can do so much with the theme, as Laura proved with her youngest daughters party.
I haven’t done a party feature in a while so it’s super exciting to feature Laura of Harassed Mom‘s daugther, Emma.
Very excited to share another party with you guys!
Susan is a crafty mom (I know because the first time we chatted, she was reaching out about craft supplies) who is generously allowing us to take a peek at her daughter’s second birthday party… here goes.
I looooooooooooooovvve all the little touches!!!
Name and age of birthday girl
Amber celebrated her 2nd birthday on 20 Feb 2016
How did you decide on theme?
From very small Amber seemed to be able to identify and make the sounds of all farm animals, and were the first ones she was able to verbally name. It seemed fitting to make this her party theme as she so easily and enthusiastically identified with them.
DIY or shop bought?
A bit of both. I tried to do as much by myself as humanly possibly, but I draw the line at themed serviettes, paper plates and bunting! We held it at our house and I arranged all activities myself. I also made the party packs, birthday cake and cupcakes (with some help).
Any behind the scenes blunders?
Thankfully nothing…that I’m aware of at least.
What was best part of the day?
Watching all the kiddies have a good time and enjoying the activities I was stressing myself out over. Also the compliments I received from the other mom’s made all the hard work so worthwhile, as it clearly didn’t go unnoticed and was appreciated by all
So yes I am pretty much still obsessed with kids parties 🙂
Last week I featured Finn’s Adventure time party and this time I feature the daughter of friends and colleagues, Michael and Kathryn. Emma is ridiculously cute!!! and her mom pressed the x100 button on the cuteness with her DIY teddy bear picnic… just have a look
So after featuring my nieces birthday party HERE I remembered that I am besotted with kid’s birthday party decor. Honestly people I LOVE IT!!! So I asked around if people would be willing to share their party pics and got a great response. SO YES!!! Def a new series on the blog 🙂 Please be in touch if you are willing to let us spy on your party 🙂
My first featured party is that of the gorgeous little Finn.
Jill who you might remember from the WAHM feature Jill’s Stuff , shared her youngest son’s (she has two curly haired cherubs one with dark hair and one with blonde, both with too much cute) party pics with us and answered a few questions.
