Birthday party season is upon us – well it seems constantly be party season with all the party’s E gets invited to since she started school.
E’s birthday is at the end of May and she is going to be five, now that she has lots of wonderful new friends she would like a party, which is fine. However I am not one of these organised mum’s, my house is an organised chaos, I am far from the hostess with the mostest so the prospect of organising a birthday party isn’t one I relish.
E has been to some great birthday parties since she started school, we have been to several village halls I never even knew existed, there has been bouncy castles, discos, face painting, glitter tattoos, dressing up, wonderful food, cakes and party bags. As much as I would love to give E a party like that it just isn’t going to happen, J will only be seven months old which will add to the chaos a little and we have no family living near by to help and in all honesty the prospect of organising a party like that makes me shudder.
E will still be having a birthday party but on a smaller scale with a select few friends, I can just about handle that. However there is still the food, table wear and party bags to think about and organise.
Recently Party Bags & Supplies got in touch with me asking me to look at their website and to review a bumper party pack. I showed E the selection we could choose from and she opted for a Doc McStuffin party pack.
The bumper party pack includes eight party plates, eight cups, a pack of serviette’s, a table cloth and eight filled party bags. I was impressed, I didn’t even know you could buy pre filled party bags – what a genius idea and the solution to making organising a party a little bit easier and less stressful.
I waited until E was at school to have a good look at all the items, especially the party bags, not only am I impressed you can buy pre filled party bags but I am impressed at the contents, as we know children love party bags, the excitement of what is hiding inside.
When I opened a party bag I felt like a little girl all over again marvelling at the contents. What I absolutely love about these party bags is that the contents are relevant to the table wear and party theme. Included in each party bag is a cute little notepad, a pack of crayons, a ruler a pack of Doc McStuffins stickers that look like plasters, a yummy flump and a little leaflet advertising the company. Now as far as party bags go this definitely gets the thumbs up from me.
As E’s birthday isn’t until the end of May I thought I would surprise E with a little tea party so we could use the items for the purpose of the review. When she came home to see the table laid out she was so excited, I even bought her Doc McStuffins doll downstairs and put it on the table.
You can see most of the table cloth in the above photo, it’s a lovely pink colour and has lots of plasters on it, it feels like a good quality table cover and will wipe clean as I later discovered. What I do like I about the table wear is the good quality of the cups as so many I have seen are more flimsy and break easily in an excited five year olds hands. The table wear as a whole looks really lovely and would be great for a party.
When E came home from school she bought home the class bear for being star learner – think in E’s case it could well be a reward for not talking for five minuets! So when she saw all the party stuff I told her it was a party for Billy Bear – now she was very excited.
E really enjoyed her tea party and when I gave her a party bag afterwards she was really happy, she has already been drawing in her notebook and she thinks the ruler is great for drawing straight lines and as for the flump, well that didn’t last long.
I am genuinely impressed with the party pack we got sent to review, there are so many party packs to choose from, some with party bags and others just table wear, so if you are a disorganised mummy like me or someone who wants to make a party look great and a little less to organise then I recommend popping over to the website and take a look for yourself.
