Voulez parti comme enfants Français?? Want to party like French Children??

Greetings all,
Just as i was wondering what to post about next . . . email inspiration falls into my InBox from Dorothee in France, asking about wholesale for her store My Little Day.  Did you know i used to wholesale my Edna&AliceMay Vintage Sensibility label in over 50 stores around the world??  Why yes i did!!  But since my children nudged high school, i stopped that part of my business - it was fun & my bitsy French came in handy!! 
The My Little Day website is all about delightful additions for the sweetest of children's parties.
 Dorothee's styling & taste is exquisite.
 Wouldn't you rather your children leave a party with a cute scribe like this Spectacular Circus Parade rather than a bag filled with nasty plastic lollies??
 Never complain again about boys being left out, super hero underpants anyone??
 Now this is a puzzle worth framing, what an adorable keepsake.
 Dorothee has a beautiful range of costumes, from cowboys to princesses, Sherlock Holmes to Little Red Riding Hood.
 Image what you'll discover on disposable cameras at a child's party??
EDIT: this IS a water pistol, thanks Monet Paisley, OMG, i'd get squirted with this 'prank' i'm so easily tricked.  Still . . . wouldn't disposable cameras be fun for children, imagine what they chose to take shots of & their angle of the world!!
 Just a taste of the fantastic party favours available.
 Or make your own up with cowboys & indians.
 Better yet, Dorothee also has a blog, it's GORGEOUS . . .
 & delicious!!
Oh do go & visit!!  I have to pinch myself that someone on the other side of the world in France, with incredible taste & styling at her finger tips, contacted little me, a housewife & mother of 4 in Australia.  I don't regret quitting wholesale or returning to sewing as a hobby, it was a fun chapter in my life but my purpose is to be available to my children, that is much more rewarding.  I did refer Dorothee to another supplier, this post was just for fun & to share the love.  Enjoy, love Posie

Hi Posie

I HATE party bags!
Yes this mean old mother puts them in the bin after a freddo is eaten- all the other cheap coloured lollies are revolting
Now I'm on my broom;
I hate artificial colours and artificial flavours. I even hate some of those so called "natural" colours too (some of them - they aren't that natural either.

Bring on the disposable cameras - what a great idea and of course a yo-yo.

I think a child should leave a party with a slice of cake and an napkin with great memories or games and playing.

I loved your success story about your wholesaling - it shows you that we can do things in life, we can achieve - it doesn't have to be life long in the supply - but to know we can do it is wonderful

have a lovely day

so good to read this Miss Posie, you seem so much happier and like a big weight has been lifted off your shoulders.
enjoy your family, enjoy all the special moments.
I too am not a fan of those lolly filled party bags, I do prefer to give them a baked cookie and some arty things.
beautiful pics, i must pop round to visit Dorothees blog.

happy day sweet Miss Posie ♥

Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!

Oh oh oh! LOVELY! I am literally making party bags today for my girl's 4th birthday party, and I so would have bought stuff from France if I had have been organised enough (and knew enough French to use Google.fr!!) No artificial colours going in to our bags, we're going gemstones, a cookie cutter and a beady necklace. xx Rhi

Hi Posie..I always think there is a season for everything..and just like a season there is an opening and closing of one. Your new season of having high schoolers will be so much more rewarding with time to enjoy them and be there for them when you need to be!

Hi, thank you for the nice party bags ideas! My little girl will be 4 in a few months and I have been struggling to find nice party bag fillers – so far some hand made fabric rosette hair clips and hand made oven melted crayon bars.
