SOMETHING GOOD - Scandi Table Design

Friday, October 24, 2014

fresh and fun
This modern wedding reception table is well-suited to a loft style venue or restaurant. Decorations are kept simple, elegant and non-obstructive: famously characteristic of Scandinavian design. Use delicate paper fans overhead, tall colourful candle tapers and small neon cup arrangements of cut tulips. Linen is foregone for wallpaper table runners setting off the bold black tableware and neon dipped cutlery.

More details and free printables all this week.

bobbying for apples

Our book FOR GOOD TIMES has loads of party game ideas, and this one from our Howdy Cowboy chapter is also great for Halloween and any Autumn or Country Party.


Fill a large plastic/galvanized tin tub with water. Place a number of apples inside. Using a stopwatch (or set the game up as a relay) see how many apples can be “caught” by the players.

GOOD PLAN - Princess Rosette Badges

Thursday, October 23, 2014

princess charm school

One of my favourite Barbie movies is Princess Charm School, and so inspired by the film you could have a host of games whereby your little guests learn How to be a Princess. A bit like the Princess Diaries too!

- Walk with a book on their head...
- Drink Tea from a Tea Cup - pinkies raised!
- Sit like a lady.
- Learn to dance the waltz .
- etc.

And when the guests arrive you can have them each wear one of these princess rosette badges. Just print, cut and stick!

GOOD LIFE - Ice Cream Party

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

ice cream party

Remember I said I was going to put together a Halloween I-scream Party, well tomorrow I have to do it as time is running out! But now I am so happy I waited, as Taryne from Taryne Jakobi Food Styling sent me this article she did all about Three Parties, Three Ways for the holidays. And her first one is all about an Ice cream Party. So I am going to take her recipe for success and follow it step by step but give it a Halloween Twist.

THINGS WE LOVE (and I am going to try and copy)...
- The paper tablecloth and paper place mats decorated with Washi Tape.
- The painted branch centrepiece - and the very cute pom pom garland with little paper honeycombs. 
- Dried flowers painted in a neutral colour.

p.s. I will be sure to share the other two parties she did soon!

GOOD PLAN - Princess Lost Slipper Party Game

lost slipper

Follow in the footsteps of Cinderella, and instead of a traditional treasure hunt, make it a search for the lost slipper. For our Princess Party, I actually found real slippers on sale from Ackermans, so not only was it a fun game but also a great party favour for the girls!

A little rhyme about the game has been made up into a free printable so just print, cut and tie to one of the slippers, and print, cut and tie a number to each of the other slippers - and you are ready to start hunting.
