Party Bag Fun

This week I have been a very busy girl preparing for Zoe's first birthday party on Saturday. We are having a small shindig at our place - just a BBQ, some salads and of course cake! We do however have 10 or so kids coming along so I thought I should do the right thing and make up some loot bags - after all it is one of the best bits about birthday parties.


I found some wedding cake bags at a local shop and decided I would use them for the bags, I then got some coloured paper (orange, blue and green - the theme for the party) traced out lots of circles and stars, cut out all the shapes and created my bags. I think they look quite cute.


Next I got totally OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) like and bought a whole heap of lollies and then sorted them into blue, green and orange colours. The rest of the colours have gone into a big container for "Halloween" (they are quickly disappearing). Don't they look pretty all sorted?


I also bought some little toys to put in the loot bags - again in the same colours. I got little parachute men, bouncy balls, scary finger puppets, little mazes and erasers that you put on the end of pencils.


Scary!


Here is what the contents of one of the loot bags, however I also put a bubble blower and balloon in each bag after I finished taking photographs. I think it looks awesome altogether.

Very happy with the end product.

Looks great - I just hope they can tell which are the lollies and which are the plastic toys!

awh! how cute. but okay, they may look pretty....but i hope they are free from artificial colours cos colours usually equals hyper kids. arrrrr.

I wanna come to the party! I hope it was lovely :)

Sorting the colours sounds like something I'd do too - you have to eat the best colours last so you have longer to look at them :)

Can't wait to see the cake you made!!
