My (party planning) Creative Space.

Hi peeps,

This week has been all about party planning!  My big girl Abbey turned 6 at the end of last month, this weekend we are holding a joint birthday party with her best friend from kinder who celebrates her birthday in a few days time.

I need to finish the Unicorn Dress, this will be her party dress.  I started it last week, but got rather distracted with all these other party creations.

I have made fabric goodie bags, for boys and girls.

3D paper butterfly garlands to be used as party decorations (idea from these gorgeous rainbow cloud garlands)


Little sewn note books to go in the goodie bags (they are around 7cm square)

Little books

Little Thank you cards to go in the goodie bags.  In English and Mandarin, we do live in China after-all!

Thank you cards.

I have been having lots of fun making hair bobbles to go in the girl goodie bags.

Tomorrow I need to make lots of pink tissue paper pom poms, to be used as decorations.
