Party Time

WOYWW

I've got a busy day ahead of me today.  Later this morning (as part of my day job - Jumbleberries Play) I'm running a children's Easter party.  I've planned loads of different Easter themed activities, including an indoor version of an Easter egg hunt.  So here I am in the early hours of the morning cutting up hundreds of egg shapes in preparation.  Not the most creative tasks I admit but they have added a welcome splash of colour to my otherwise empty workdesk.





What's on your workdesk this Wednesday morning?

Fairies & Elves

This mornings Easter party will be the second party I've organised this week.  My little Princess turned 4 at the weekend, so we gave her Fairy & Elves party on Saturday.  As well as traditional party games. dancing and singing, we set up a couple of craft tables (obviously!) where her party guests were able to make Elf and Butterfly themed party crowns and magic wand pencil toppers.  We ended up with glitter everywhere as you can image, but it was all great fun.



I used the party as an excuse to get creative and made everyone a little felt egg-cosy party-favour (with a magic star on the front for the boys and a butterfly for the girls) hid a little chocolate egg inside and popped them in the party bags......



... and I had a go at making a fairy inspired cake and some little toadstool cupcakes. The cupcakes went down a treat with everyone (hence there being only two left for the picture!). 

Not bad for for a first attempt.  Next year I'll be taking inspiration from Busy Butterfingers - how amazing are Famfa's cakes?

Right, I better go and finish my prep for the party.  Fingers crossed the beautiful weather continues.

Wishing you a productive day.  x

The view from your kitchen is wonderful! I can think of worse things to be doing so early, although I'm in impressed mode over your preparation! Am sure it will be a super day for egg hunting.
