I’m a big fan of DIY decorations and stationery, but with two under two, I have limited time on my hands. So this year, instead of designing everything myself, I bought a brilliant party pack from Gardella Global on Etsy. It includes a personalised invitation, a thank you note template and lots of decoration ideas, including cake toppers and water bottle wrappers. Aren’t the little wheelbarrows sweet? And I love the dumper trucks.

This set is all about construction, but there’s packs out there for every party theme you can imagine, just search for Printable Party Sets on Etsy. I’m going to use the little Thank You tags on the party bags, which are bucket and spade sets bought from a brilliant Dubai-based pound shop called Daiso, (similar available from Amazon or eBay for UK readers).

I’m still puzzling over how to keep all the children entertained. Possibly a giant pile of sand with toys hidden in it? Or construction themed colouring? It’s slightly weather dependent whether we’ll be in our local playground or indoors. The forecast says its going to be super-hot next week – the opposite of our concerns for Ivo’s first birthday in England!
