… joka saa sinut kuplimaan onnesta.
Teimme veljeni kanssa teille ystävänpäiväksi pieniä oakettikortteja jotka voi liittää kaverille lahjaksi menevään saippuakuplapulloon. Aikuiselle ystävälle tägi käy hyvin myös shampanjapullon kaulaan kauniilla rusetilla kiinnitettäväksi. Näitä löytyy sekä englanniksi, että suomeksi ja värivaihtoehtojakin löytyy.

For Cotton Candy´s 7th birthday for her friends we decided on a pyjama party theme. First things first, I booked the cleaning lady to come the morning after. Kids don´t really mind if your house is not spick and spam but if you decide to serve popcorn with sprinkles and have confetti on the tables you´ll wish there was someone helping you out the next day, especially if you have the grandparents coming for birthday cake. Well that was all besides the point but a fairly good party planning hint to make your life feel a little easier.
So to the actual party… We wanted to serve breakfast foods, such you would serve after a great sleepover, so we had different cereals with milk and almond milk, stacks of pancakes with the choice of maple syrup, butter, cinnamon sugar or whipped cream and jam. We had fresh fruit & berries and we had non dairy smoothies too. And we had hot chocolate with mini marshmallows. The girls had laundry sack jump-racing and then they got some popcorn for watching Willie Wonka & the chocolate factory- movie ( as one would when on a sleepover). The dress code was pj´s and we asked everyone to bring their sleepy toy too. I had originally planned that they would have decorated pillow cases but as I could not find decently prized ones sold separately anywhere fairly close to my house ( I don´t have a car!) I decided against it in the end. So we made bookmarks for bedtime stories as the craft. Everyone got a small scented bath & shower gel as a party favour. It was a fun party!
( I need to apologise for the awful pictures. It was a really gloomy day…)
I used some Liberty print stickers for decorating some bottles like the whipped cream & the maple syrup.
How was your Christmas? I know we are all heading in to the new year with enthusiasm and I should have had time to make this post for the days between Christmas and New Years eve, but I didn´t. So here are a few photos from my phone from our Christmas Eve.
We started our day with hot cocoa and gingerbread cookies ( we added some pink mini marshmallows too) and a fire roaring. The girls found some Belle & Boo treasures from their Christmas stockings. For lunch we had some rice porridge and tangerines. And we obviously watched the Snowman and the Snowman & the Snow dog which is Bubble Gum´s favourite movie. Then we headed for the Christmas sauna.
