‘Back to School’ Bunting

We’re half way through our summer holidays already here in Edinburgh and starting to think about the new term head. As mentioned before, my youngest will be starting Primary 1, something that is celebrated big style in German tradition. Three years ago, when my eldest started school, I made some pencil bunting for our celebrations […] Read more…

How to Throw a Circus Party on a Budget

So a week ago I turned 40, and I decided to embrace this major milestone of my life by throwing a big circus themed party. I had seen loads of pics of gorgeous circus and carnival themed parties on Pinterest, so I set out to recreate something of the feel but without breaking the bank. […] Read more…

A Paw-tastic Birthday

My youngest has just turned 3, and after giving his big brother a spectacular unicorn birthday surprise just ten days earlier, I felt like I had to make it up to him too. Luckily, his wish for a Paw Patrol theme was easy enough to accommodate, with a cake that looked spectacular but wasn’t that […] Read more…

Hooray for Hat! Birthday Cake Decor

Another week, another birthday. In November, birthdays are a bit like buses in our house – you wait for ages, then two come along at once! Having made such an epic cake for his big brother just over a week before, which took several hours to decorate (baking time not included), I was faced with the […] Read more…

Construction Site Birthday Cake

So, today we celebrated The Boy’s sixth birthday! It’s such a cliche to say it, but goodness how quickly they grow up! Stop the clock please. Anyway, it was a much anticipated event – he is the youngest in his class at school and the only one to start school age five, so he couldn’t […] Read more…

Endlich Schulkind!

Apologies for the silence on the blog this past week, but we have been gearing up for the big day – Einschulung! If you missed my previous post, this is what the school enrolment is called here in Germany, and it’s celebrated big style with a ceremony at school followed by a party with friends […] Read more…

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…

Superhero Party Bunting

This year, the boy wanted a superhero theme for his birthday party. We try not to go overboard where parties are concerned, but we do like to make the effort on a few themed decorations that are easy enough to put together. There are plenty of templates for superhero party decorations online to print off, […] Read more…

Superhero Cake Toppers

As a little DIY bonus this week, I thought I’d share some of the superhero decorations we made for the boy’s birthday party. After last year’s Postman Pat birthday cake, expectations were running rather high but I hadn’t really been planning to make elaborate novelty cakes every year, it was more of a one off […] Read more…

Happy Birthday

As I mentioned yesterday, we just celebrated the boy’s 4th birthday, and I wanted to share a few pictures of the superhero decorations we came up with for our little Spider-Man fan. As seems to have become a bit of a tradition, we made some paper bunting, which this year we embellished with superhero shapes […] Read more…
