Welcome to {Friday Find}

21 Jun

Welcome to my new series of posts called Friday Find! Every Friday I will be searching and writing about wonderful products and suppliers associated with the party and event industry. I am always on the hunt for inspiring ideas so thought I would share the love.

So my first Friday Find are these gorgeous photo booth props. I am sure you have already seen them doing the rounds on Etsy and Pinterest, but I recently put them into action and can vouch for how much fun they are!

For my youngest sons first birthday I created a photo booth area where all the guests could strike a pose with a prop while I took a photo! As part of my thank you notes I then included some printed booth photos. I also purchased this gorgeous printable poster via Etsy. As soon as I saw it I had to have!

In the interest of privacy to my guests I will not share any of the posed piccies at my little ones first birthday party, but here is the backdrop and photo prop area….

For more inspiration you can checkout my photo booth pinterest page. Lots of very cool inspiration on props, signs and backdrops.

Fourth of July Party Inspiration

16 Jun

With Independence day just around the corner and many celebrations being planned in the sunny UK (?!) I thought I would put together a little party inspiration board.

As you may be aware we gain a lot of inspiration from US parties. In the UK we definitely know how to have fun and throw a good bash, but dare I say it the US just seem to do it loud and proud. If you don’t agree just take a moment to look at a couple of US based party websites including the wonderful 100 layer cake and Hostess with the Mostess. Amazing, huh?

We have some fab US based suppliers who supply most of our party products including our wooden utensils, tissue decorations and sugar swizzle sticks. In celebration of Fourth of July we have put together a little mood board of some of our favourite products.

For more party decorations and inspiration you can check out our special Fourth of July party page. However you choose to celebrate we hope you have a sun and fun filled day of celebration.
