Crazy month of May ... :)

 so I designed the tutu for my lil' girl ...;) ...I was a wanna be fashion designer once... :)

 I have loads of e-mails ... facebook reminders and comments ... for missing out regular updates on my blog ... the honest truth is ...  every year, around this time.. ( and this is just how it will always be) ... cause it is a real- real  and I mean it when I double emphasise it ... really crazy time in our household ...
It was Sarah's B'day mid month and the tom-tomming about it starts early ... that's when my tensions soar high ... and I wake up in the middle of the night imagining lil' 5 yr. olds hate me for a lousy party. ... come on seriously... ask any mom of lil' 5yr. old's ...

packed and ready to be shipped out to the clubhouse

 I always want to take pictures of the entire setup ... once things have been designed and the styling for the final look is complete ... Aah! dear me ... do I speak of a picture perfect life ... that's not how it really happens  does .. it ...if you are going solo ... its crazy at the last minute ... the cake needs  to be fetched ... its scorching hot outside it could melt  ... the extra hands are not on time ... oh! this year the balloon guy almost stood me up ... #*!@*#% ... :):) ...


ready with my flowers for the tables ... God! save them from the scorching heat

... so no matter all you plan the  ... last miutes are all crazy pulling the whole thing off and I miss out having someone photograph it for me. Luckily this year a dear friend helped me with the kiddies at play ... pic's .... but the MY KIND OF PHOTOGRAPHY ... sigh ...
But never the less ... I am really inspired by one of the readers who wrote to me saying she loves to refer back to my blog everytime she plans her parties ... well ! how about it ... in the next few posts I want to share with you my two cents on some quick party styling for kiddies ... Oh! if not for the dead line ... I'd say I love doing those crafty lil' styling ideas ... plus I'll share with you some of my fav. party blogs to refer to when planning your next party ... hope you'll come back and join me  ... and yep ! I'd for you to share your fav. lil' tricks for the parties ... leave me a note and I'd absolutely love to hear from you...

Happy Birthday to Sarah! I completely understand about not being able to take pictures when you host a party :( There are a zillion other things to do and you just can't be at all places at once. Helping hands with tasks assigned to them and a request to be there early could help ;) But then things have a way of wrong when you least expect or want it.

A very happy birthday to Sarah! I am sure the party was great! Yes, thats the thing about hosting parties solo..you can either host the party and make people smile or take pics! I guess it always about choosing the former :)
