Let them be children


Children’s Parties

A Muddy Puddle Party- Peppa Pig

One of my favourite party themes the Peppa pig party, no muddy party would be complete without a chocolate or mud fountain. 
The tassels were so colourful hung across end the room and along the tables. 
I filled a basket (middle of photo) with rolled up Peppa pig colouring sheets to send home with the children. 
this fabulous cake was designed by myself and made by the wonderful Sue at Flowers and More on Facebook 
I filled jars with smarties cookie mix and stuck the instructions on the jar for each child to take home as a party favour. These were delicious and very well received.

A cake for little kids… Or big kids😜

I just had to share this as I love it so much. If you have not ventured to making a celebration cake yet, or like me are awful with icing cakes this is the cake for you, it’s such a simple idea and really affective.Make it for a child or a big kid and they will be sure to love it!

Sorry but I forgot to take pictures as I made it but will try to get some next time.

I used this recipe for the cake on the inside which is perfect as the cake is covered in delicious fudged icing for everything to stick to (this cake on its own is lush!)

Link to recipe:

To decorate I used two packets of double fingered KitKats (16) simply stick to the sides whilst cakes still wet. Then tip on or if you feel the need you can make a pattern with them; 6 packets of smarties. Tie it all together with some colourful  ribbon and hey presto you have a lushious beautiful celebration cake to enjoy!

If you want to add a personal touch why not make mini bunting as I did.

All you need is: scissors, twine, pretty paper, white paper, felt tips, pritt stick, glue gun and kebab sticks.

  1. Tie the twine to one kebab stick and use glue gun to stick in place
  2. cut triangles from white paper and write letters on as desired
  3. stick, using pritt stick, the white triangles to pretty paper and cut around leaving a visible edge, leave an extra flap at the top of triangle for folding over twine
  4. use the glue gun to attach bunting to twine overlapping the flap you left at the top of the triangles
  5. Tie and stick (glue gun) twine onto other kebab stick
  6. place in your cake!




1st birthday party- Garden Games

I went to pound land and got buckets and spades and footballs as party favours, the kids loved them and the older children loved the sweet cones. What a perfect party for my little man. 
Garden games are a perfect option for a first birthday, the whole family enjoyed themselves.
Garden games and a summer Party wouldn’t be complete without a drinks table and of course Pimms!

Cinderella tea party

a fabulously girly tea party themed around Disneys latest Cinderella film.

all the children came in gorgeous gowns

imageimageimageas the children arrived they got a beautiful wand or a wizards wand.

We had a photo booth, a roll of wrapping paper stuck up to the window made a fabulous backing drop.

the cake was a pumpkin carriage with sparkle designed by me and made by the fabulous Sue Sweetlove at Flowers and More on Facebook

each game had a different sweet as the prize

afternoon tea was served with cakes and treats




DocMcStuffins Party

my daughter loves watching Disneys DocMcstiffins as well as playing doctors so what else could we do as a party theme but the Doc herself!

Whenever I do a party I try to do my best to spend as little as possible, making or borrowing as many things as I can.

The fabulous cake was made by Sue Sweetlove @flowersandmore on Facebook. She followed my design perfectly and everyone commented on this fabulous cake!

We made some signs as you can see in the photos, we used a cardboard box some yellow paints, crayons and printed Doc pictures.

We also had a Doc colouring table

Doc themed plates and napkins

and Docs party bags were cups of sweets wrapped up in pink tissue and cellophane.
