How To Make a Popcorn Bar!

This past weekend we hosted a pizza/movie night birthday at Seasons Family Centre in the Annex, which was a very low key and super easy birthday (if you’re looking for ideas). The kids almost made it through the whole movie (which was close to 2 hours) and therefore made for an easy, calm and almost quiet birthday! We made a little popcorn bar, which didn’t take much set-up and the kids loved it. All you need is a bin for the popcorn and some smaller ones for candies. Visit your trusty dollar store for most of the supplies, we also purchased the popcorn boxes there. Print out some fancy looking labels and voila you’ve got yourself a Popcorn bar. If you’re not into the mess and the work, just visit our Birthday Page and give us a call, we’ll host your next Popcorn Ball

Unicorns!

Not sure when these fantastic, mythical creatures made such a roaring comeback, maybe they never left in the first place! We’ve been asked to do several unicorn themed birthdays and events lately and I thought would share some of the pics for inspiration. All our cupcakes and cookies were made on site at Seasons Family Centre in the Annex. If you’re not up for baking or hosting your own birthday – visit our Birthday Page for more information on how we can help you!  

Woodland Fairy Party

Seasons Family Centre hosted an adorable Woodland Fairy Party for a special little girl this past Sunday. The children made Fairy crowns and decorated cupcakes. The crowns were a big hit, we had two different versions, one with flowers and one with leaves, to appeal to everyone! Check out our pictures below for inspiration or maybe you prefer to call have us host your next party! Feel free to visit our Birthday Page for more information on having your next party with us!

Shopkins Party!

To be honest, I had never heard of shopkins until recently (I have a 4 year old boy, ask me anything about superheroes and ninja turtles – I’ve got all the answers). Now that I’m a veteran in the world of shopkins I think it’s safe to say if I was a little girl today I would be all over this craze. At first I didn’t quite get it, now that I’ve thrown a shopkins birthday, I most certainly understand the obsession with these little, adorable toys. If you’re throwing a shopkins birthday, here are three helpful tips. All you need is pink and purple decorations, then visit Party City or your local dollar store to add some shopkins bling. Making necklaces/bracelets are the perfect craft, use big wooden beads if you’re hosting a party for wee little hands as they’re easier to manipulate. If you want to throw in a baking activity and don’t want the mess, you could buy chocolate chip cookies, get some candy googly eyes and make kooky cookie! We made ours …

Black and White Party

I’m finding it very hard to believe that my big brother is 40 years old. I mean that seems so old, I still think of him as this kid with scraped knees and braces, chasing me around but he’s a grown up, a real grown man. So we celebrated his birthday in style this year, it was a pretty big year for him and so a big party was the only way to go. We did a black and white theme, which is so easy for guests because who doesn’t own a piece of clothing that isn’t either black or white. Everyone looked so great and the sweet table was pretty easy to create as I only had to incorporate two colours (or shades if you want to be technical). Here are some pics from this weekend festivities. 

How to Host a TMNT birthday party!

So my little man turned 4 (well actually not till the 19th but that’s just a small technicality). He’s currently quite confused about how old he really is, either way he wanted a Teenage Mutant Ninja Party this year and thus I had to get a little bit more acquainted with the four green guys. I was pretty aware of the basics but didn’t know about some of the details. If you’re looking for more information on our birthday parties please visit our Birthday Page!The most ironic thing is that he hasn’t even watched the show, he just knows them from observations.  The first craft we did to get the ball rolling was his turtle shell. Check out our instagram post for details on how to make it. Ollie wore the shell the entire day that we made it, went “ninja-ing” around all day, and then on the actual day of his party, he had zero interested in wearing his shell, go figure. Next we planned an obstacle course and a scavenger hunt (both TMNT related). For the obstacle …
