How to throw a Cat in the Hat birthday party
CrashBoy is turning two! Now I love a good kids birthday party and started thinking about CrashBoy’s a few weeks ago. As luck would have it, Mother Duck Said: “Let’s Party” were looking for someone to try out their invitations and co-ordinating printable party supplies. So I put up my hand because I have learned from my mistakes and will accept any help I can get when it comes to a running a smooth party ;)
Mother Duck Said: “Let’s Party”, is a party supplies business started by two “mumpreneurs” Renee and Sandra. They offer party favours, great customised invitations and printable party decorations in a range of coordinated themes. Best of all they have a Cat in the Hat theme, one of CrashBoy’s favourite books.
Another good reason to go for the Cat in the Hat theme?
So how am I going to throw this party? Well, first things first, the invitations. Here is a sample of the Cat in the Hat invitations that Sandra and Renee can customise for your party.
Before you go getting all excited with thoughts of gate crashing, this is a sample, with made up name and details. You didn’t think I would be silly enough to put the actual invite up did you? Have you seen the size of my house? It’s tiny. And we don’t even have a gate to crash yet ;)
You get the invitations, two on a sheet, as a pdf. You can print them out, or if you’re lazy like me and averse to printing, addresses, stamping and mailing, you can cheat. I cheated with the help of an image editor and just added the names to the top of the invite and emailed them all out individually. Done, from the comfort of my own home, no trekking down to the post office required ;)
Now, I have the invitations under control and Renee and Sandra have also sent me co-ordinating printables for name tags, cup wrappers, cake toppers and the “Happy Birthday” bunting. So that is pretty much the decorations taken care of too, with a few balloons added here and there.
What I really need you help with is THE CAKE!!!! Also other food and maybe games too.
So, please get your thinking hats on and help a mum out. I need some inspiration please so I can write up a Crash Challenge next Tuesday!
I received a customised invitation pack and coordinating printables, and one packet 0f 25 stripey paper straws (RRP: $39.95) via Lucky Bus Consulting for the purpose of this review. No payment was offered or accepted.
