Mickey Mouse Party: D's 1st Birthday








I bought the mouse ears from a party shop in Bloemfontein as well as the red buckets and blow outs. The buckets were filled cheese curls, soft sweets suitable for small children

Joshua - 1st Birthday: Teddy bear's picnic
Bought material from Metro and made the "picnic" blanket. (Specifically looked for checkered (is that the right word?) material)

Bought the teddies from Pep, they had huge red ribbons on them (valentine's day) which I took off and replaced with blue/pink ribbons.
Bought the same material as the "blanket" just in pink and blue to make the "picnic" bags for the kiddies, filled with all their sweets

I downloaded a teddy mask template from the internet (left the bow for the girls and took it out for the boys), painted them and then colour copied.

Cakes: (We had an official cake and then I wanted to make a cake and my mom wanted to make a cake, so we had 3 in the end)
Official

Mine

Mom's

Invites, thank you cards and name tags all done in photoshop

Firefighter Party: D's 3rd Birthday







The party buckets I bought from crazy store and the pray bottle too, sprayed them post box red and painted in black the word "brandweer" on them the centre piece was a normal 5l bucket sprayed red with the word "FIRE" painted on and to resemble flames in the bucket I used crinkled paper red, yellow and red. The helmets wer leftover from last years party so I sprayed them red (they are party favors but sometimes the moms leave the stuff behind) I also bought each kid a fireman jacket that came with n "walki talki" badge and axe.

Joshua - 2nd Birthday: Toy Story




Bought the Buzz party boxes on e-bay. Filled with a magic face cloth from Mr. Price (all in theme) A yo-yo's (e-bay) and the forks were also e-bay shopped. Then I added a mini slinky and some of Joshua's left over stickers from his Toy Story sticker book.

I made the hats, designed the label that went around the bubbles and made the colouring books with the thank you page.

Some party packs (the loot bags) were bought in New York, the rest at Toys r Us.

Serviettes and cups from Hallmark - New York.

Straws - Toys r Us.

Blow outs - Toys r Us as well as the balloons.

The Loot bags were filled with the sweets.

Bought Toy Story shaped chocolates and chocolate disks at CNA.

Colouring book thank you page


Decorations from "Music Moods"


Had the cake made, this time there was only 1! (Decorations - flea market and bid-or-buy)


Forks and Yo-yo's



Invites again photoshopped

I Bought boxes of PnP 100 juice - Grape & Apple & some Capri-Sun for the bigger children. For the adults I also only bought 3 large bottles juice, a 2L Coke, Sprite & Rasberry. And then there was coffee & tee who wanted. If they wanted anything else they had to bring their own.

I've seen nice serviettes at a place in Joburg but I think like Monz said, seeing that you are in Durban, you know where the places are, so it will be best if you shop around
