When you're four, like Lizzy, you seem to spend a lot of time on the party circuit.
Now - I don't want to seem like a party wowser, but sometimes there are so many parties and so many treat bags that they just don't seem like treats anymore. know what I mean?
We've just had a magic garden party for Lizzy's birthday (it really was a magic garden as it poured with rain and we had to magic up n indoor a garden for twenty four year olds... argh!) and decided to try something a little different this year for take home favours.
We found gorgeous little tin buckets at the local party store and filled them with colourful springy annuals - marigolds and pansies.
On the morning of the party we 'planted' some lollipops and... voila - we were done!
These were seriously the easiest party favours to make ever. There was no fiddly cellophane wrapping and no ribbon tying at two in the morning.
And best of all? Lizzy and her friends thought they were great!
So it's been a little quiet around here - life has been rolling along, but unfortunately, the blog hasn't!
We've been celebrating birthdays...
and traveling the world...
Yes - that really is the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park...
But we're back... and it's a nice place to be!
PS - we've also been planning a new series of classes. If you are in Sydney and would like to learn how to Sew some gifts for the lovely little people in your life, have a look here
