Hallowe’en Rosettes

We love Hallowe’en at our house, and usually have some kind of Hallowe’en party or gathering. A few years ago, we went all out and had a costume competition and a pumpkin carving contest, and I created some prize rosettes for the winners.

Endlich Schulkind!

Apologies for the silence on the blog this past week, but we have been gearing up for the big day – Einschulung!

Fantastic Mr Fox 1st Birthday Party

Last weekend, we celebrated Mr Fox’s first birthday. Yes, one year old already, can you believe it! When The Boy turned one, we kept it really low key, because really they are too young to care at that age – but this time round I had the itch to go wild on a theme. Possibly […] Read more…
