Free Kids Party Planner Printable

Whenever I plan my kid’s parties, I always land up creating lists and more lists, things to do, things to get, things to remember. So eventually, after planning 5 birthday parties between my two boys, I decided to create a Kids Party Planner Printable that I could print out every time to help me, instead of always starting from scratch. It’s pretty and colourful, but the best thing about it is that I made it for you too! Yes, it’s FREE for you to print and use at home! You can download the party planning printables (7 pages in total) here.




Vintage Cafe Racer Biker Party for Big Boy Will!

Recently we threw an awesome Vintage Cafe Racer party for precious William to celebrate his second birthday party!  We thought it we would a fun twist on the usual motorbike party since he does love everything with wheels!

Everyone had such a blast especially with the “Tats for Tots” stand giving out temporary tattoos in true biker style, and with all the yummy treats there was no way it could go wrong!

Hope you enjoy having a look  at our little celebration for Big Will’s Second Birthday!
