As you already know my beautiful boy turned 2 last month. With money being a little tight we decided against a full on party like we did for his 1st birthday, which you can read about here.
Instead I invited Lambs closest friends over for a Gruffalo inspired tea party. Nothing huge, just some lunch and cake, party bags and lots and lots of toys (and mess!!)
To help with our Gruffalo party we were sent a fab party pack from Party Bags & Supplies. Included in the pack is a table cloth, 8 paper plates and cups, 20 napkins and 8 pre-filled party bags. Seriously, this made the tea party so much easier than if I had to go out and get the bits myself, especially for the party bags!
The party pack retails at £28.40, which I think is amazing value. If you were to go out and buy the bits individually it would definitely cost the same if not more.
As any parent knows, children’s birthday party’s are pretty manic. I was constantly filling up juice cups, making sandwiches and wiping grubby hands, so photographing the party wasn’t a simple task. But at least I got this one of Lamb dressed as Woody!
The kids absolutely loved the Gruffalo themed party stuff. I got them all to choose what animal plate they wanted (each plate was a different colour and animal from the book) They also loved their party bags. I had messages from all of the parents telling me how excited their were when they saw what was inside.
Overall the tea party was a huge success. Ok, so I was completely exhausted at the end off it, my house was turned upside down and I was finding crumbs for days, but Lamb had so much fun and so did his besties.
