    Lockdown Birthday Parties!

    As lockdowns continue, more and more children’s birthday celebrations are taking place at home in a much simpler way. In fact they are very much like the parties I had as a child and I, for one, think that’s a good thing! Trends come and go but some things are just too good to ever go out of fashion; pass the parcel, musical statues, cheese and pineapple hedgehogs, and jelly and ice cream to name but a few! If you’re unsure where to start or just want to be sure you have all bases covered, check out my top lockdown birthday party tips! Party Theme and DecorationsA birthday tea at…

    Summer Ready!
