The PARTY week.....

This week has been all about partying.... kids parties that is, in particular 1st birthdays.  With my little man Axel turning one in a weeks time we have been baking, making & picking out the perfect outfits to wear for his party. I'm not usually one for themes or dress up parties myself but for kids you kinda just have to do it! And I couldn't just settle for one, so he's party will be a mix.... A onesie! and monsters party! now when I say 'onesie' I don't mean you have to wear your PJ's, use your imagination. Im very excited to celebrate his first birthday and can't believe its almost here.

Here is a little peak at the week that was for us......

'Alba' -  First of the parties..... Party+Beach+Park = Kids Heaven! 

'Axel' - Strawberry Kisses........ All my mates are turning ONE!

Picking out his outfit! Rock your baby onesie, Bonds overalls and cute moccasins from Hubble+Duke

Chocolate Freckles for lolly-bags
Inspiration from

With this upcoming party I decided to throw a bit of homemade into the lolly-bags, and went with Chocolate Freckles. Lets face it who doesn't like Chocolate Freckles. And whats even better they are so simple & quick to make. All you need is Chocolate melts, cookie cuter's, a little cooking oil spray and 100's & 1000's. Perfect!

Now to get back to making the cake....

Fun With Pom Poms // Lets Make A Cactus...

Seriously! How much fun are pom-poms? It doesn't matter if you're five or eighty two it's something you can make and once you've mastered the basic pom-pom you'll be able to knock this bad boy up in no time.

You're going to need a few things...
One medium sized green pom-pomOne small sized pink pom-pomOne medium sized brown pom-pomScissors Glue (I highly recommend using a hot glue gun, much easier and less messy).Cardboard egg container (to use one cup section as the cacti's little pot). Some Paint (I used gold spray paint).

Firstly cut and trim one egg cup section from the carton. Paint your egg cup container 'Pot' and leave it to dry. It should be dry by the time you have finished cutting your cactus into shape.

Make your three different pom-poms in the colours and sizes needed. (Make sure you leave the tied pom-pom strings through the centre of the pom-poms long, you'll need these to tie your pink and green pom-poms together). 

The trickiest part …
