the silly season gets sillier
To expel the crazy of Christmas out of my life - i've always planned well in advance, as we have large families & parties to hold in December too. This week we'll be bringing home 14 children from school to a party here, then deliver them to a school disco. For me, with a lot of preparation & organisation, it's quite effortless . . . busy/ crazy/ noisy . . . but my children will have a ball, everyone will be fed dinner & i'm saving a dozen parents the trip to the other side of Canberra, because i can, thanks to my husband & the fact we have two 8 seater cars!!
Amazing what you can do with a $3 packet of balloons, twine & removable hooks on the ceiling!!
All the fans & tissue shapes are available in my on line shop, they're reusable & inexpensive, yet pay for themselves over time.
I'm making almost all the food myself, as it tastes better, i have the time & it is more cost effective, i even want to give making candied pop corn a go.
Thanks to playing on Instagram these past couple of months, a whole new group of 'friends' have opened up. I hit 1000 followers this week. I popped by the new Moxom + Whitney florist in Braddon, after welcoming hugs & giggles, Loulou presented us with this gorgeous bunch of blooms, which are sitting front & centre on the party table. How delightful are people in this world??
Ok, back to party preparation & fluffing tissue pom poms.
If you are local &/ or have friends in Canberra, please direct them to the Downer Hall (just north of Canberra city) tomorrow evening, 4-8p.m. for a gorgeous little market event. I'm having a huge sale, enjoy. For more Christmasy decorations & festive fun, check out KidSpot Village Voices My Creative Space, love Posie
