Not only was it Easter Sunday yesterday but also my son Ryan turned a big teenage 13. I did him a small party with some friends and the tableware was provided by house of party.
House of party supply party wares, balloons, banners, table ware, and lots more party type items, not just for birthdays either but also Christmas, weddings, baby showers and lots more special occasions.
As it was Ryan’s 13th birthday and he’s now past the character themes. I opted for a more older theme – The Wow theme. I would really recommend this theme for older children and teenagers who feel that the character themes are too young for them. House of party also has many character type party ware to pick from too.
The designs are quite simplistic but still make a statement with big bold letters and bright red and blue colours.
The popcorn buckets come in useful and lessen the mess of popcorn falling off plates.
The banner looks great hung anywhere and the paper napkins we used to wrap pieces of birthday cake inside.
Other items in this Wow party theme include invitations, balloons, lanterns and confetti. The items start from £1.60 each from House of party.
I would love to say that the weather is improving, but sadly it isn’t and Easter weekend has been a bit of a wash out. We did have the odd few days of sunshine last month and I am very much hoping that the sunshine comes back again. Izebella is also hoping for nice weather as she has a brand new pair of very pretty sandals to show off in the sun.
These are the Clara leather rip tape sandals from Start-rite. Being from Start–rite I had a pretty good inkling that they would be a good strong, but comfortable pair of shoes for my daughter and I was not wrong.
These sandals are made from leather which helps keep sandals dry, or less sweaty. The soles are really soft, almost spongy making them really good to wear in the sun all day long. I wish I could get sandals this comfy for my feet.
They have riptape type fastenings which even young children are able to easily fasten. The straps simply stick down and can be pulled up. The straps, being soft leather are also really comfortable and don’t dig in or leave marks like some sandals do.
The colour is white/silver and they do look rather pretty with a nice dress on. All Izebella needs now is some better weather to wear them in.
As for the price – they cost £38.00. This is probably a lot more than I would usually spend on a pair of summer sandals but I do think they are much better quality, both I design and comfort than cheaper versions.
