How To Personalise Your Party & Giveaway

I always enjoy spending time organising parties. I like choosing a theme and researching ideas to recreate. For my 30th this year I knew exactly what theme I wanted, 1920’s Gatsby style. I knew how I wanted to decorate it, with black and gold being the main colours but I was unsure on how to make it just that bit more special, as it’s a ‘big’ birthday.

Party Packs – Gatsby Party Products

Last week for my upcoming Gatsby party I was focusing on getting my invites ready. This week I’m focusing on the fun part, decorating! I’ve gone with a Gatsby theme. Think lots of gold and black.

I’ve been lucky enough to work with a company called Party Packs to make this happen.

Frozen Party

The day finally arrived! After much planning and organising we had Lowenna’s frozen party on Saturday. It went really well and I think everyone had a great time.

I thought I would share some pictures from the day with you.


Frozen Party Decorations

For the party I decided to buy a party tent that we could attach to the back of the house so we could make a party room. It might sound a bit extreme to buy an entire party tent but we have a lot of parties so I’m sure it will be well used.

I had great fun decorating it all with a winter wonderland/frozen theme.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the food and we managed to squeeze everyone around our kitchen table.

Frozen Party Cake

My very talented niece made the cake for us.

Princess Dress-Up Station

I created a princess dress up corner for anyone that wanted to become a princess. This was very well received and we ended up with little princesses everywhere.

and we even had a guest appearance from Olaf, AKA Lowenna’s Uncle.

Frozen Party Bags

For the party bags I bought blue material favour bags. In the girls bags I put a frozen bracelet and ring and in the boys I put an Olaf keyring and a blue trumpet. I then topped it up with sweets, birthday cake and a cake pop.

I’m pretty sure that Lowenna had a wonderful day.

How to Throw a Thrifty Pirate Party

For my sons birthday this year we decided to have a pirate theme. He is just slightly obsessed with pirates at the moment thanks to Jake and the Neverland Pirates! Today I thought I would share with you how I kept the cost down by making our own decorations and shopping around for the best deals.

Enchanted Forest Party

Here at the Gypsy Soul household we love a good party, whether it be one for our children, a grown ups only affair or a big family get together.
For my daughters 2nd birthday we had an Enchanted Forest Party and I thought I’d share some of the pictures with you.

The best bit about creating this party was by far the food! I could really let my imagination run wild. I was particularly proud of my log with the mini toadstools on it, made from cocktail sticks, red apples and marshmallows.

I had great fun choosing names for all the different dishes.
Some of the names included fairy berries (raspberries), squirrel chips (dried bananas) ,birds nests (chocolate crispy cakes) and fairy wands (sticks with chopped fruit on).
I even managed to get a good dose of healthy food in there too.

Enchanted Forest Party Decorations

 I made a wooden sign to go outside the hall instead of the normal balloons. See how I made it here

For the decorations I went with a colour scheme of reds, whites, greens and browns. We put up our green gazebo in the hall and hung green crepe paper streamers from it.

I also made some mini toadstools to scatter around the room and on the tables. See how I made these here

Enchanted Forest Party Outfit

For my daughters outfit I managed to find her a green fairy outfit in a charity shop which only cost me £3.00, bargain and I made her a flowery crown using leftover craft bits.

Following with the enchanted forest theme I didn’t want to go with traditional party bags instead I made my own from old jam jars. I filled them with a few sweets and some mini musical instruments.

In all it was a great party and I think everyone enjoyed themselves although I’m not sure Lowenna really knew what was going on.
