HomemadeHappiness for Lode


Two weeks ago I was preparing Lode's Birthday party. Together with his best friend Matthew he invited 20 of his friends to celebrate both their Birthdays at our home. In a Flow magazine (magazine from the Netherlands that i really LOVE) I had found this poster with 'Donkey and the tail' game, illustrated by Caroline Ellerbeck from HomeMadeHappiness, which I kept to use as one of the many games Lode wanted to do with his friends. To be honest I like keeping Birthday parties for the kids a bit low-key and very important with a homy feel... the excitement of having all their friends over is already causing sleepless nights ... :)


So just like last year we decided to play old-fashioned games like musical-statues, watergames, eating the Birthday cake and end the wonderful morning with cracking down a Pinata..... read more>>

For the invitations I got some great help from the always friendly, working, tweeting and super talented Diana van Ewijk from (again) HomemadeHappiness. She had send me the circus pdf that I could use for the birthday invitations. I printed the happy elephant and animal train on some paper and wrote the invitation message on the inside.

My baby is a Handful!


{My dear friend Marjon aka Vorstin took this beautiful picture of Lode}

We have had a wonderul day yesterday celebrating Lode's fifth Birthday! Of course we missed the grandparents and close family a lot, they should be here on your child's Birthday but we tried to make it as beautiful as possible for him. Today we will be hadding out to Universal Studios here in Singapore something I'm not a super fan of, rather do something more low-key, but I'm sure he will LOVE it :):)


Last week on Friday we celebrated Lode's party at his school, the teachers are just fantastic, they invite the parents to come and join the party circle and ask them to tell a little bit about their son or daughter. Of course the cake and the party-bags for the kids in the class were the most important part of the whole morning... wonderful to see the big smiles and excitement on the little faces >>>READ MORE   + FREE DOWNLOADS

Lode often comes home with party bags from Ben10, transformers and other really exciting stuff, so I was really worried whether my handmade little bags were cool enough, but the kids loved them, they had a lot of fun with the mustaches and everybody thought the Lion looked very nice.


The wonderful Reka Kiraly from Finland send me the beautiful Lion Tags in a downloadable pdf file. And she is kind enough to give them to you for free too!

Download RekaKiraly_Birthday and Download RekaKiraly_Birthday_lion to get the name tags from Reka Kiraly.


I'm a huge fan of Reka's stunning work!! We already have a couple of her prints in her home, but just noticed the "Big Sea" and "Balloons' and added them to my print wishlist.

Birthday 'Help' needed ...

Perhaps you noticed... not so many posts this week (: ... and I do apologise for this, but this mama was/is tired, not feeling too well and a lot of things to do in my private life. Among other things a very important upcoming Birthday. Lode my oldest son will be 5 soon and I really would like to give him a special party.


So i did some research yesterday on the internet to prepare myself. I will try and make everything myself, the invitations, party materials and decorations if you have any suggestions for printables, downlaodables, you name it, please leave a comment! I love this simple, but very colorful party in the top image from blissfulfetes, which I found via Hip Hooray.  


I will also use this free down-loadable disguise-kit from designhousedigital and put them on sticks, just for fun. Little animals like these will be part of the party bag.


Perhaps I'm setting the bar a bit too high for myself :), never made a real cake in my whole life, but I would definitely score big time with one these .. awesome found the via Momfilter and they are from Chez Bogata Bakery, in Paris.


and if I would have had enough time I would go to Daiso too and try create these amazing handmade journals myslef too just like ... did for the ver inspiring lovelydesign blog. By the Congratulations Sharilyn with your beautiful new baby boy!

Why bother trying to invent something new while Brittany & Sara have compiled such a nice and handy kit for us. Of course you can always give it your twist, colors, taste and style...

This diy party plan includes over 50 pages of tutorials, party instructions and gorgeous photos--including how to make your own dinosaur bones and more... Have Fun! ps. also nice just for play.
