a special season

One of my favourite stores is Typo and I especially enjoy their behind the counter promos! So following in their footsteps we are excited to announce the launch of our Spring Specials whereby every week behind all of our tills and in a special online section you get to add a "steal of a special" to your shopping cart.

If you are not familiar with the way the special it works, it goes along the lines of you make a purchase - ANY purchase no matter what the value and then you get to buy the goodie behind the till at a greatly reduced price! YAY!

So this week's special? You get 144 plaid paper straws for R50!

GOOD LIFE - Swan Dress Up

swanning around

For Zara's Swan Party, I was in luck that the ballet store in our local town places regular orders with an Italian company who makes the mos gorgeous ballet gowns. A girl in Zara's ballet class would wear hers every class and all the girls had been eyeing it all year - so I was over joyed to find the tucked away shop one down strolling through the little streets. As it was Christmas time in the stores, I was able to pick up some angel feathered wings that when turned around look very Swan like. The final touch? A little gold crown from HM.

GOOD LIFE - Swan Party Sweets

swan sweets

For the Swan Party, my friend Donna made a three tiered cake which I topped with a little Schleich Swan. I love doing animal themed parties as these figurines make the best toppers (and post party keepsakes). 

And then I searched high and low for as many sweets that I could find in white and neutral colours and placed these inside Candy Glass Jars and used our Candy Buffet Kit so that guests could fill up a goodie bag of treats to take home.

basics are back

Sometimes our little ones come up with very unique party themes, and it is pretty hard to find goodies that suit their imagination! That is why we love our goodies from Sambellina - their party products are great quality and come in all colours - so it is easy to then to use their party products alongside our party printables for those hard to find themes.
