Children’s birthday parties can be stressful, right? I know I’m not alone in this feeling. You want to give your child the best celebration possible and, personally, I have to admit to a little kids’ party envy on occasion. How do ‘supermums’ out there create these amazing events, themed from the invitations right down to the minutest offerings, not mention decorations, games and costumes? And all seemingly without too much effort at all. They’ve all seemed quite serene, presiding proudly over the fruits of their labour, while I seethe enviously inside, hoping that I may happen upon the secret to an impressively successful and stylish kids’ birthday party one day.
Well, I have. It’s an amazingly gorgeous book aptly titled Party! The Ultimate Kids Birthday Party Book. It really is the ultimate in party planning and creation. It doesn’t just feature recipes for sumptuous treats (both sweet and savoury), it shows you how to create themed invites, formulate appropriate games and activities, and even make costumes and accessories.
There are 10 party themes to choose from, namely: Fairy Princess, Outer Space, Dinosaur, Cars Trucks & Trains, Sports Day, Under the Sea, Craft, Zoo, Pop Star and Cooking. The pages are drenched with colour and creativity and are altogether absorbing. Even if you’re not in the market for a kids party, this book would make a gorgeous gift (Christmas isn’t far off!). This book really does have it all.
Party! The Ultimate Kids Birthday Party Book is published by Pan Macmillan Australia
and will be on sale from October 1 priced $24.99.
