The art of organising children’s birthday parties is something I think universities should offer a degree in. Which games to play, what cake to serve,what types of entertainment, what decorations, which venue and what to put into goodie bags… all very, very important questions!
The French website Monkey Choo is a great place to pick up party decorations, cute goodies and all the bits and bobs you might need to organise a great party. Here are some of my favourites: a lovely selection of candles, pre-prepared boxes and my personal favourite, a kitsch but cute cupcake stand. The site is currently only in French, but most of their posts have been translated into English and they deliver internationally!
