Under The Sea Party - Party Favours

I usually make goody bags for the party favours. I looked for under the sea themed party bag fillers but I wasn’t very impressed with what I found. Sweet bags are all the rage now so I decided to make Under The Sea themed sweetie cones instead. I decide to turn the cone into a mermaid tail. I cut out fund from sparkly card and attached them to the bottom of each cone. I then filled them with jelly turtles, [click here to read on]

I love planning Bob’s birthday parties! I am constantly thinking of ideas and a couple of months before her birthday I get excited as it means I can start preparing.

Disney Princess Party - Themed Games & Crafts

I am so far behind with my posts that we are planning Bob’s 5th birthday party before I have finished telling you about her 4th. This year we are going to have an Under The Sea theme.

Disney Princess Party - Party Bag Fillers.

I made some lovely princess party bags for Bob’s party, you can see how I made them here. The party bag fillers were very important, obviously for the children but also because they gave the skirts their shape. All You Need To Party sent me some lovely princess tiaras and some jewellery. I struggled to get these into the party bags as Bob wanted them all. I then added a little purse, some bubbles and some sweets. I put boys [click here to read on]

Disney Princess Party - D.I.Y. Party Bags

I stuck 2 princess toppers together to make them double sided. I then made a 1cm cut in [click here to read on]
