GOOD FUN - Traditional Party Games

simon says

Here is another hopefully not forgotten party game that is perfect for younger children, needs no supplies and can be adapted to fit in with any party theme (for example: at our pirate party we used "Captain" instead of "Simon". 

Firstly choose a leader (this can be yourself or another adult) to act as ‘Simon’ who will call out a series of commands that the children have to follow such as ‘Simon say’s put your hands in the air’. The children must do any commandment that begins with ‘Simon says . . .’ However the leader will put in some trick commands without beginning with ‘Simon says’ such as ‘turn around’ and the children who do this task by mistake are out.

GOOD HOUSE - Press for Champagne

press for champagne

If you are one of our shop customers, you will know that you have to push a buzzer to be let into our stores. Last week, Kerry was saying how our little JHB gate is getting a bit of wear and tear as the gate is being tugged on prior to the buzzer going off. So she had the idea of a little sign - and who knows how my mind works but I remembered this little vintage frame sign with real buzzer that I bought for my Paris themed spare bedroom from Lisa Golightly.



So I thought I would use this as inspiration for our door sign, and then at the same time I asked Amanda to do a poster version of the original. That way you too can have a little sign up - let us hope they both work!

sidewalk chalk selfies

I just spotted the best idea for making fun selfies with a twist. Here you chalk a design to the pavement and then lie down and snap a photo. This set is definitely got a whole new meaning of fun now!
