    February 26, 2019Celebrate with us, Celebrations

    So much happens in the first year of Baby’s life. Okay, yes, when you have kids, there’s always a lot happening, every single day. But that first year is an especially magical time when Baby transforms completely before your eyes. It’s a short 12 months, full of precious memories you’ll hold on to forever.

    February 26, 2019Celebrate with us, Celebrations, Party

    With over 15 years’ experience organising children’s events and parties I always start the planning process with this brief in mind. “To organise a party that firstly appeals to the birthday child and their guests but also takes the stress away from the parents and ensures they enjoy the experience just as much!”

    Often we meet with our clients and their children, to get direction from the birthday child about their ideas for their special day.  For …

    How To Prepare for the First Day of School

    Every milestone in parenthood is magical, yet there is something about your little one starting school that marks a moment more special than most. Maybe it’s the realisation that they’re taking their first independent leap into the big world, or it’s because it’s the first time many parents realise their little one isn’t so little anymore – whatever the reason, watching your child enter the school gates for the first time is all at once exciting and …

    What to Gift A Summer Baby

    August 3, 2018Gift Guides, Gift Inspiration, Uncategorised

    The saying goes, “the littlest people, are the hardest to buy for”… well it doesn’t exactly but it should because it’s true!

    RIVER TURNS SIX MONTHS

    So little River is six months old! The main thing I’ve noticed this month is that people have stopped looking at me with that sympathetic face and asking if she’s sleeping through the night, maybe touching my hand and saying ‘how are you?’ (because maybe my eye bags are giving me away?! Or probably because I’m not wearing makeup that day as I haven’t …
