Have you got the Sunday Blues, with being back to work tomorrow? Then I think you will definitely want to get one of these desk pads.

GOOD PLAN - Owl Party Sips


For Zara's birthday party, and pretty much every party I plan - I set up a self-service drinks station. I have used both my glass dispenser and glass daisy lid jars countless times - a really good investment for all sorts of parties and entertaining events.

owls overhead

For the Owl party, I was luckily my home was already part of the theme with my forest wallpaper. So I just added in this owl fabric bunting and a giant custom poster I was able to get from the UK.

GOOD FUN - Traditional Party Games

musical games

By far one the best children's party games must be musical statues/bumps or chairs. To play musical games you need a fun CD or your iPod as children will love dancing to their favourite songs. For musical statues, get the children to dance about and when the music stops they have to keep as still as possible. The one that moves the most is out and keep playing until you have a winner. Musical bumps is a similar game but instead of standing still, players have to sit down. The last person to sit down is out. If you have enough room, musical chairs is another fun game where players have to dance about until the music stops, at which point they have to find the nearest chair to sit on. Make sure there is always one less chair than the amount of players so there will be one person without one. Each time a player is out, remove another chair until you have a winner!

GOODIES - Copper Clock

copper clock

I have been spending the past week decorating a few of the rooms in our house - no major renovations here; just adding a few bits and bobs for the new season. I know some would argue that copper is just a trend and probably some would say even over now but I really do like the colour and as our kitchen is mainly white, I think this little pop makes all the difference without actually introducing an actual colour. What do you think, is copper still cool or is it rusty? I'm going with the former, largely because I still am keen to throw a party with this as the main colour!


GOOD PLAN - Owl Sleepover Tents

a row of tents

For Zara's Owl Sleepover party, I was inspired by this idea and therefore managed to track down these cute little tents. I then added some flower fairy lights that I actually had used years ago for Zara's bedroom and my mom made each of the little girls their own owl fleece blanket. The fabric was really reasonable and the girls loved all having matching blankets - in fact only just the other week one of the girl's mom's smsed me to show a photo of her daughter still sleeping with the blankie!

A trio of fabric tents.
