BUNTING!! I love it. Whether it's for the kids bedroom, playroom or as a party decoration it always adds a certain level of festivity that lifts the spirit.

I have just found the perfect cake to accompany all the great party accessories from yesterdays post. The recipe for this AMAZING Rainbow Cake is available from the Whisk Kid blog. I could do with a piece right now (probably not the best diet food though!).

I love throwing a party...and now that I have kids there is even more reason to invest in cool party accessories. There are a few really great party shops online, one of my favs is Sharnel Dollar Designs. Check out some of their gorgeous party stuff....food stands, favour bags, display jars and more :)

More ways to inspire your little ones to eat their food. Fortunatlely these ideas are achievable by the average mum/dad. For more awesome designs have a look at Funky Lunch.

I had a request to find somewhere that stocks nice kids fabrics, so was delighted to have discovered the QLD based store Funky Fabrix. Love their range - lots to choose from. I am also a huge fan of owls and they have some beautiful fabrics featuring owls in their collection.
Today I discovered the most stylish blog by Amy Atlas. If you don't know her work, then go have a look. Was fabulous to see a party designed by fellow Australian Mrs A. in the Cove featured on her blog. Doesn't this just look amazing.

The warm weather in Perth got me thinking about hats so I went to Made It to see what the creative folk out there were making. By far the most stylish range was at Winnie & Clem. I love both the stunning racing caps and long brim designs. The long brims are even reversible.....the two images on the left are actually the one hat. Great that the kids can be sun smart and look funky at the same time :)
The Inspired Occasion shared this great photo with us on their facebook page today....so creative. If only I had the time (and patience) to create these for the kids every night..would't have any truble getting them to eat their veggies!! I think the avocado man looks particularly tasty!!

When I win lotto i now know where I am going to spend a big chunk of my winnings...The Little Kidz Closet. I could buy absolutley everything in their shop. They have everything from beautiful furniture and bedding to toys and clothes.

One of the decorations that I am loving at the moment is the tissue paper pom-poms. I have viewed a number of stylish parties that have featured them recently, so was very pleased to discover DIY guide to making them. A very easy, affordable project with impressive results! Go to the craft page to view the how-to :)

Wall decals are all the rage at the moment beacuse they are so easy to apply, move and reapply without any marks on the walls...such an easy way to update the kids rooms!! I found the folk from Wallalure at the last UpMarkets and love the red dragonflies which I have now placed above my little bubs change table :)

I have decided to add a extra page to my blog site for free printables....I have seen a few really great ones recently and would love to share them with you all. There are some very generous designers sharing their creations for free, yes 100% free, not even a sign up here first or anything that gains them a cent of money. Having said that I am sure that some people may stay on a make a purchase as the designs are so cute and well priced!! So the first i would like to share is from Paper Glitter. The free printable section includes cupcake toppers and wrappers as well as pencil toppers. I particularly love the japanese style boxes, very cute :)

Cocoon Couture are an Australian company now selling to the global market...no surprise really given how gorgeous their designs and products are. Their range includes bean bags, wall art and other accessories. Am thinking a bean bag with a elephant for my little boys room....I just love them :)
While there are so many cheap toys out there nowadays finding reasonably priced wooden ones is always more of a challenge. Fortunately the Walker family from Denmark (Western Australia) have done all the hard work and created an online store My Wooden Toys. My oldest boy was given the wooden magnetic fishing boat for his birthday and plays with it pretty much every day, so it definately has my thumbs up!
One for the boys!!
