Pretty Pink & Gold Party

You don’t always have to choose a specific type of character theme for a party, stunning colours grouped together can work beautifully! Just like this gorgeous little girls pink, white and gold party which has a touch of vintage. A great party idea! We are in love with the balloon garland, the vintage bike, tea for two set up with table and chairs, and some yummy desserts.

Little Indian Chief/Tribal Party

This theme is just too cute for little boys – a little indian chief, or tribal themed party. There are so many different ways and colour schemes you can use for this party theme, but we just love the rustic touches with greenery, tied in with the western feel this 1st birthday party has. And check out that doughnut stand!

12 Fantastic Kids Easter Gift Ideas – featuring our friends at Target

Are you stuck for ideas of what to give the kids this Easter? Do you want to be a little creative and get them something special? 

Here are 10 fantastic and just simply delightful ideas of what you can get the kids this Easter, to help make the day extra special and create lasting memories! And it’s no secret our friends at Target have really come through with the goods this year…

  1. Winter Pyjamas – coming into the cooler weather, it’s a great idea to get the kids a pair of snuggly warm winter PJs. If you need to buy them anyway, why not give them as a gift for Easter instead?

2. Slippers/Ugg Boots
– warm slippers are another nice winter gift great for the kids. The shops always have lots of great bunny rabbit style slippers and colourful Ugg boots. Why not put a chocolate Easter bunny in the ugg boot, and put at the end of the kids’ bed so they have a wonderful surprise when they wake up!

3. Dressing Gown
– what better to pair with a pair of slippers, then a dressing gown! If your child maybe has a favourite TV character, or colour, there are lots of different dressing gown options at major retailers to choose from.

4. Themed Easter bag/bucket
– there are lots of great Easter bags, buckets, and baskets that are perfect for the kids to take out on an Easter egg hunt in the garden! Some fantastic bags out there are personalised with your child’s name too, so it makes it even more exciting for the kids to keep and use each year.

5. Easter Egg Carton
– fill up an empty egg carton with lots of little mini gifts! This is a great idea if you’re on a budget, and don’t want to give the kids too much chocolate. Add in some mini chocolate eggs, a little mini chick or bunny toy, or a hot wheels car for boys, maybe a bunny themed crayon or little add on to get them excited about Easter!

6. Easter Plaster Painting Packs
– why not let the kids spend part of their Easter painting up a storm! These little plaster painting packs are inexpensive, and a great activity to keep the kids busy. Then at the end they get to keep their works of art, and you can write the year they painted them on the back.

7. Easter Crayons
– These Easter themed crayons are a great little inexpensive option to give the kids. Package up in a little bag with a colouring book, and they have an activity they can do over the Easter weekend!

8. Carrot Bubble Wands
– another cheap idea is to buy some large orange bubble wands, and add a strip of green crepe paper to the handle end, so it looks just like a carrot! Another fun little activity for the kids to get outside and play with this Easter.

9. Easter Cupcake Baking Set
– this is a great ‘pre-Easter’ gift idea to do a couple of days before Easter too. Why not try baking some cupcakes or cookies with the kids! You can package up a little baking tray, wooden spoon, cookie cutter, sprinkles and mini Easter eggs for toppings, and have a bit of a baking afternoon! Let them make a mess, and create some yummy works of art!

10. Easter Hamper
– These hampers are a nice idea for both kids or adults. They can include a little chocolate, but also other things like toys or colouring in books for the kids, or some wine, bath bombs or soaps for adults.

Ice Cream, Doughnuts & Sprinkles Party

Ice Cream & Doughnuts are life. Who doesn’t love them!! And they are the perfect bright and colourful party theme for a girls party. We just love this slumber party set up complete with teepees for each girl to sleep in, comfy bedding & cushions, and a cute little breakfast tray also themed to suit. This is great for young girls, and high school aged girls too! It really turns the simple sleep over into an exciting night with lots of fun!

10 Creative Birthday Loot Bag Ideas under $4 – Instead of Lolly Bags!

Kids Birthday Parties are a time where kids tend to do nothing but play, eat, and enjoy sweets and cake! But not all parents would like to have their child come home with the traditional bag full of lollies. So what are some other cheap options that you could send as a take home gift instead of a lolly bag, maybe as part of a loot bag that will have parents chuffed!?

We have put together 10 fantastic and creative kids birthday party loot bag ideas, all for under $4, and 9 of them are under $3!! All kids love novelties, and they will feel like they have a present to take home from the party too. And we have ensured not to choose throw away items, and things that the kids are sure to love!

  1. Mini Strawberry Plant Growing Kit (Little Gardeners) – Bunnings – $3.98

Mini Strawberry Plant Bunnings

Such a great idea, kids can take home their very own little strawberry plant to grow! It comes in it’s own cup, and they also have lemon kits available too.

2. Paint Your Own Mug Set – Kmart – $3

Paint your own mug set Kmart

This is a great creative idea that can be given as a take home gift instead of a lolly bag. Although the bo says age 8+, with a adult supervision, littles from around 4 years old could easily do this at home. It includes a 6 piece set!
