Remember the mess i had on my craft table last week? well, if you been to my other blog, you'd see the mess i've created for several weeks! it was all for the school...
Yes.. yes.. i know i told you that there wasnt any big parties, no big hoo-haa's for Aidan's birthday... but these are not for him! these are for his friends at playschool! i was once a Montessori preschool teacher, and i know how it's like being one. this was just to thank everyone at his school!
The school normally throws the kids a party, celebrating their birthdays. they deocrate the halls with banners and buntings.. they'd play music and make them birthday hats and give them presents. and in return, this was what i made for everyone.
I made bags - 16 of them from scratch. wanted it to be as plain and simple, and nothing of those with baloons and letters sold at the shop. mum said why on earth am i asking for more things to do whereas i've already got too much to make!
Hardy printed the wordings for the paperbags and we filled it up with loads of goodies! not too much sugar i hope- just biscuits with yogurt, plain biscuits, raisins and a tiny dutch traditional cake. i love the packaging! sweet and they're pastel!!!
For the boys, i did flags... it didnt have any sharp elements, tried to make it as safe as i could. had their names on each flag! they have the cutest names! and you should see them in person as well!!
And for the girls, awww... of course.. the girls... life wouldnt be complete without a flower for the girls... and again, each with their names on them!
And to the carers, i had round plain boxes decorated with the most simplest things - ribbons, gems and tiny flowers, with their initials on the boxes.
Aidan came home knackered! i take it as he had a good time at school! will write more on Aidan's day at my other blog...
Thank you guys, thank you to each and every single one of you for all the kind, birthday wishes. you guys never fail to make me smile with each of your comments and well wishes. i will try to reply to all individual comments made (including previous posts) soon..
