When my 2 sisters and I were growing up, our mother was the birthday queen! We ALWAYS had a theme and had great fun in preparation for the big day. Our 3 birthdays were all within a few weeks of each other so "party season" in our house was a big one! Lou and I have followed that tradition with our own children. I may be slightly more obsessed, but that is another story!

On Sunday we went to our gorgeous nephew's 4th birthday party. He had chosen an underwater theme and Lou did a fantastic job!

Here are some photos....

Very yummy fish cupcakes. When I asked my 2.5 year old if he'd like some fish cake, he said "oh no. that's yucky mummy" until I convinced him I had not meant fish flavoured!
Personalised water bottles - fun way to get kids to actually drink water (instead of soft drink) at a party!

My seaweed wig (that I made for my daughter's 5th birthday party last year).

Check out more photos of this party on Lou's blog here and here.

My new favorite things for parties, are printable pdf's. You can buy, for a very reasonable price, a pdf pattern for anything from party hats, cupcake wrappers, cupcake toppers, paper bunting, posters, etc, etc and they can all be used for anything and can be printed up as many times as you like. My favourite sites for party printables are:

www.partiesbyhardie.etsy.com (used in this party)

I'll be putting more party ideas in this blog as time goes by because I really do love parties!
