6 Top Party Tips

1. Avoid the pressure of who to choose to invite to your child’s birthday party from their class – share the party with another child who has a birthday around the same time.  Invite half the class each.  It halves the cost and no child gets left out.

2. Take a group photo of everyone at the party and use it to make a thank you card to everyone who came.
3. Give the children a craft activity to do as they arrive – such as a large piece of paper they can decorate to use as a place mat. For toddlers, include an art project at the end – this calms them down before they are released into the general population.  You will find many free children’s craft activities here.
4. When playing party games, make sure each one lasts no more than 5 minutes – any longer and children can become bored.  You will find many party game ideas here.
5. Write out name labels for each child.  When they win a prize stick the label onto the prize.  Not only does this name the prizes, but you get to see who you have left and who hasn’t won a prize yet.
6.  Plan, plan, plan!  Involve the birthday child as much as possible – choosing the theme, games, music etc.  Have a rough timetable of what you will be doing and when.  Make sure you prepare the party bags well in advance – you’d be amazed the amount of parents I’ve seen at parties who are still filling party bags 10 minutes before the party is due to finish!  Expect lots of noise and chaos and embrace it.  So long as you have planned well, all will be fine!

Pink Owl, Blue Owl

We're always saying that we listen to our customers, and try to give them exactly what they want, and I like to think that in most cases, we do just that.  So when a customer contacted us recently suggesting that our Hooty Owl was perhaps a little too macho for a girl, we took note, and provided a very girly pink one!

Below is our normal (blue) multicoloured owl.....

 
and here is his new female companion.....
 
 
 
Both owls are available on printed cotton tote bags, and printed drawstring bags .  Personalised versions available in the Personalised Party section.

Colour In Party Bags

For a long time now, our business has been focussing on our speciality, printed cotton party bags.  One of our most popular lines is our personalised printed cotton party bags.  To accompany these, we also offer free printable colouring sheets, featuring the same characters that are printed on the bags.

It seemed to us, the next logical step was to combine these two products to create a colour-in party bag!  And here they are!! 

 

 
Launched this month, they are already proving popular because not only do they make a fantastic goody bag that will be of use long after your party or event, they provide a wonderful craft activity for children to do during long events such as weddings, Christenings and big family celebrations.
 
 
Of course, we also supply special fabric crayons, which give a much better finish than a normal wax crayon, and each bag can be personalised with your child's name, giving them that extra "wow".
