"kids birthday party bunting"

I’m a bit garland, bunting, pom pom obsessed so when I saw these colourful ones on Style Cookie I just had to feature them.  Garlands and pom poms are an inexpensive way to add a splash of colour to any kids room or a kids party and they look so fabulous too.  These bold and bright ones are by the Dutch Engel who say that hanging these up makes you feel happy and I couldn’t agree more.  There’s something so celebratory and cheerful about pom poms and garlands.

"honeyomb pom poms"

I’m loving these honeycomb pom poms too and think it’s a fab idea to hang some above a kids bed.  I bet that would bring a smile to your face each morning.  These ones come in a huge range of divine colours so choosing just one colour is going to be hard.  I’m loving the sunny yellow but I also love the deep, rich plum colour.  You can visit Engel to see all the range or visit Lifes a Party where they have a selection.

I’ve been wanting to do an Easter themed post and I’ve been thinking of ideas ranging from bunny decor to Easter crafts.  But then I stopped to think about what kids (and I) love the most about Easter and the answer was obvious… chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate.  I don’t mean just chocolate eggs, but fun, yummy and slightly unusual chocolate desserts that kids and adults will adore.  So I went on the hunt for sweet chocolate treats that aren’t too hard to make but still have the wow factor and of course the yum factor.  And since it’s Easter, there’s no need for any guilt… just indulge, I know I will.

"amazing chocolate tart"

How delightful does this chocolate tart look?  But it gets better… this chocolate tart is made with a dash of tahini (sesame paste).  The creator of this delicious tart didn’t have peanut butter and used tahini instead… I am dying to try it.  I found this over at Cannelle et Vanille where you’ll find the recipe.

 "chocolate nutella tarts"

I don’t know a kid who doesn’t like nutella so these nutella tarts are sure to be a hit.  And for that extra special dimension, they have some salt in them.  The best part is that you don’t have to get involved in making the chocolate filling, just scoop it out of a jar.  These are mini ones so they’re great for a party too.  You’ll find the recipe at Spoon Fork Bacon.

"gooey choc chip cookies"

The ultimate chocolate chip cookie?  That’s how they’re described by their creator and I believe her.  The gooey, chocolatey, deliciously inviting centre has me sold.  I think this is a sweet treat that no kid or adult can possibly resist.  I found the recipe at Not without Salt.

"chocolate potato crisps"

What a great idea!  Chocolate covered potato crisps (or chips if you’re not British).  Could this be the ultimate comfort food treat?  And in even better news, there’s no slaving over a hot stove or oven involved.  They’d be great for a kids party although I can’t imagine the adults laying off but also perfect as a lazy {Easter} Sunday afternoon treat.  Find out how to make them at Spoon Fork Bacon.

Have a lovely Easter! And before I go, here are some more delicious and beautiful looking sweet treats.

"polka dot ballet pumps kids"

I have a huge soft spot for polka dots especially for children, so when I saw these polka dot shoes it was instant love.  Made in Japan by Sayang Design, these shoes are handcrafted in soft leather and they’re designed by parents who have paid attention to every single detail from style to comfort.  The lace-up ones would look cool on boy or girl and no little girl could go wrong wearing any of the gorgeous ballet pumps.

"polka dot shoes for kids"

These polka dot shoes come in a range of colours including some plain ones that are extremely wantable too.  You can visit Sayang Design to see the collection.  Unfortunately they don’t ship internationally but Rakuten (Japan’s global marketplace) have a selection and they ship to several countries.

When you’re thinking colours for your toddler or kids room, black & white probably don’t even come up.  It’s definitely not the most popular choice of colour scheme for a kiddy room but if done right, it works and how!  Black and white rooms can look super stunning and can really have the wow factor.  It may not be for everyone but I’m a big fan and I’ve rounded up 5 kids rooms that do black & white oh so well:

"black and white kids room ideas"

I love them all but if I had to choose a favourite, I think it would be number 2.  I love how the black and white cars with hints of red are placed by the window and I love the bed too.  I also like the idea of having a chalkboard wall as they’ve done in rooms 4 and 5. It’s easy to do and any kid would love it.

"mouse mobile for babies"

A while ago I shared some whimsical mouse mobiles with you which proved to be a popular find.  Those mouse mobiles were the creation of Laurence Bonnet, a French lady with a penchant for making delicate little treasures that are oh so beautiful.  Today I’m lusting after her newest hand made creations which include these adorable pajama clad mice that come complete with a little wire frame bed and can be suspended from the ceiling… perfect little eye candy above a cot or toddler bed.  These sleeping mouse mobiles are a limited edition creation where each piece is unique and numbered.

hand made soft toy bears"

All of Laurence’s mobiles and soft toys are hand made with the greatest attention to detail and lots and lots of imagination.  Another of her new creations are these cuddly and cool looking bears.  I love the whole father son thing and I love how cool and collected papa bear looks with his scarf, top hat and suspenders ensemble.  Laurence sells her creations under the Rose Miniscule name and that’s where you’ll find all these gorgeous little treasures.
