Our much-awaited Care Bears party arrived at last! We’re so glad our efforts paid off; the decor looked gorgeous! This party was designed for a special friend who wanted the theme to revolve around the Care Bears. Here are the photos, starting off with the card banner that we hung from the curtain pole. The sparkly lights were already set in place by my friend’s dad, and they set off the banner perfectly!
We hung bunches of helium-filled balloons on both sides of the banner, and one balloon from each chair back. It looked super cheerful.

Here are the party hats for the kids, topped with curly ribbon and finished off with sparkly ribbon to tie under the chin.

One of the cutest decorations of the evening, the big rainbow on the wall! Here’s the tutorial we followed to make this: http://intermissions.typepad.com/snapshots/2008/08/rainbow-art-project-for-kids.html
It was easy to make but quite time-consuming. We think it was worth it, though!

Today’s post is about a suuuper simple way to brighten and change up your decor. All you need to do is print out some flag shapes on cardstock, cut them out and string them on some ribbon or string. Hang it up and you’re done! Could it be any easier!? There are lots of decorative papers available for personal use online. The ones I’ve used in the image above are from this link (Please note that these are only for personal use):
You can use papers in any design and color, and use these colorful banners for parties, special events or just everyday decor. And they are so easy and cheap to replace when you get tired of them.
Here’s a mini-banner that I’ve put on my bathroom mirror, in blues and greens to coordinate with the decor. Isn’t it cheerful?
I’ve simply attached it with some washi tape, which comes off easily without leaving residue.
You can put a little space between the flags like I’ve done here, or string them close together. Secure each flag to the ribbon with some hot glue at the back.
Another great idea is to personalize them by putting a letter on each flag to spell out a name. If you can’t be bothered with assembling your own, we have some great party banners in our Etsy shop. 🙂

Here are the beautiful gifts we created for a special customer. She wanted something unique to gift to her nephews aged 2.5 and 4.5 years. We came up with a towel and t-shirt for each toddler, personalized with their first name and favorite thing. The elder one, Amaar, got Thomas the Engine printed on his tee, and the younger one, being fond of crocodiles, got a friendly croc on his.

Unfortunately.. we had a limited stock of t-shirts and they are sold out 🙂 However, we will be arranging for new ones soon. Meanwhile, the towels are in stock. Here they are again.
We think they’re the perfect gift if you’re looking for something unique and special. These are available in multiple colors. To order, contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
