The party season approaches our house

With a string of parties both to attend and to plan for my 3 children it can get a little dull trawling the high street to find something worthy of the Birthday child. I never know what they already have or sometimes even like and can not feel anything other than guilt when I do cave in and buy plastic fantastic! So when Jo Esson at Stealing Candy said she has some new gifts for children amongst her new range I was very excited. I even bought a little girls present well in advance of her party as I couldn't resist her new garden sets! (don't want to share a picture of that one in case her mummy gets a sneak peak that spoils the surprise)
I bought for this weekends 5 year olds disco party a lovely set of writing paper and then personalised it by making her a little bag with her name on it and a pretty face cloth to help clean up all the cake later today! Making part of a gift of your own is great way to keep costs down and still end up with something scummy.

  1. What a gorgeous pressie for any little (or big!) girl. The bag and flannel are so special and something that will last a very long time and the writing set....well I love it too and bought one myself for Maddie! Loving your work as ever :o) x
