May 14, 2013
It was Ivy's birthday yesterday and she had a few friends over after school to help her celebrate. I have decided to embrace the girly princess stage she's in right now, and so we had a proper Fairy Princess Party complete with lots of princess dresses, pink balloons... and fairy wings! I didn't plan any ...

Yesterday was my son Quin's 6th birthday and we had a little party for him after school. I followed Esther's idea and told him he could invite six friends because he is 6 years old. I picked the kids up from school, brought them back home, and we played a few games in the garden, ...

Spring flowers are finally in bloom in our garden -- I saw daffodils this morning! This means that Spring is around the corner, with all its positiveness.

A disco party!
March 1, 2013
Our son Pim turned 6 years old last week. Six already! Time goes so fast... Wasn't it only yesterday that he was a tiny little baby, the cutest little toddler...? Anyway (sigh), Pim loves everything to do with music and dance, so he requested for his birthday a 'disco party'. Even though I wasn't too ...

Djeco Stupix
February 27, 2013
My girls do think they have the most hilarious sense of humor, but it reminds me of the kind of humour pre-pubescent boys might have: It's just not really refined. (Their idea of a good joke is making fart noises.) You can just imagine their joy when I took them to buy a present for ...

Cake Pops
January 7, 2013
Some gadgets are essential in life, like a can opener and, for me, an espresso maker. Others are not essential at all, but really fun to have. Take the cake pops maker, which my girls were given for Christmas. It will definitely not be used daily, but it is great to have for rainy afternoons ...

Super hero photo booth
October 24, 2012
A few weeks ago we threw my son Henrik a super hero party.  I thought it would be fun for the kids to feel like they were real super heroes flying through the sky saving lives, so we created a city scene photo booth.  At first the kids didn't understand why they needed to lay ...

Apple stamping and tote bag making!
October 9, 2012
Last May it was Sara's 7th birthday, and she wished for a 'sewing' party with her girlfriends. I suspect this has to do with the craft night I organise with a few of my girlfriends every 2 weeks on Monday night, which involves tea and homemade cake and lots of chit-chat. Sara loves the idea ...

This week in escarabajos bichos y mariposas, I wrote about the candles I make for my parties. I like them being more personal. The ones in the pictures are from my son's cowboy  birthday party. To make them long I use a wooden skewer, I attach the candle to the stick with some string and ...

Kids Birthday Cake book

I think it's safe to say most kids in New Zealand grew up with a copy of the Australian Woman's Weekly Kids Birthday Cakes recipe book.  My sister and I would read it over and over deciding on what cake we would have at our next birthday party, and now my kids love reading it.  ...

Decorate your own shield -- a knights' party
March 9, 2012
For Pim's 'knights' themed birthday party last week, we had the idea of letting the boys decorate their own shields. I always like to do something a bit creative with the kids to offer some 'downtime' before the more active games we played later. My husband had made 8 shields out of thin beech plywood, ...
