"5th birthday party dress"Last weekend we celebrated Anya’s 5th birthday with a small party at home.  It was a very girly do with lots of paper pompoms, pink tissue and 5 giggling girls.  Last year we had a big party where I hired a venue and invited loads more kids but this year we wanted a more intimate do at home.  "lady bug cupcakes"Anya loves lady bugs so that’s what we chose for the cake: lady bug cupcakes in pale pastels.  I wanted to keep it simple with a home-made feel so we chose cupcakes instead of a big cake.  I wish I could take credit for making them but they were made by my talented friend and cake maker Mirna.  For the food we chose Anya’s favourites and very kid friendly things like pizza, chicken goujons and crisps all home made.  I thought the food would look pretty served in little cardboard boxes lined with pink and white striped tissue. "girls 5th birthday party ideas"Having the party at home meant space was limited and there was no room for an extra table for the girls to eat on.  So I lay a white sheet down on the floor at one end of the living room and scattered the sheet with little gold stars and some honeycomb balls and this is where the girls ate.  The kids loved the honeycomb balls and started playing catch with them!"5th birthday party ideas"With a December birthday you have to have the party indoors as it’s way too cold.  So that usually means a venue but I so loved having the party at home and keeping it really small and simple.  I think Anya enjoyed it more too.  All in all the sun shone, the food went down well, the decorations were destroyed and the girls giggled and screamed while my husband and I watched and celebrated our baby turning 5!

"mini boden girls party dresses"It’s definitely time to start thinking about Christmas and the festive season.  But not long before that we have another important event in this house – my daughter Anya’s birthday.  So come mid-November I’m thinking gifts, party planning, outfit selecting and everything else to do with celebrations.   One of my favourite things to buy Anya is clothes and right now she’s going through a phase where anything sparkly meets her approval.   Perfect timing I think, because who doesn’t need a bit of sparkle in Winter, especially for the festive season?

So with sparkly clothes on my mind I joined forces with Mini Boden to share some of my favourite pieces from their 2013 party collection.  There’s lots to choose from but for me the brocade dresses and skirts really stood out.  I love the gold polka dots against the dusty rose but there’s also another equally striking colour combo of a rich blue with bronze dots (not pictured here).  And then there are the floaty tutu’s with a subtle hint of gold that pair up nicely with the sequined ballerina pumps.  Which little girl could resist this kind of sparkle… I know mine definitely couldn’t!

Here’s to wishing you a sparkly festive season!
