AD| For the purpose of this review we were sent the items listed below in return for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
When it comes to organising birthday parties we have had our fair share. The first time was for my daughter’s birthday. We booked the local village hall and some soft play. It’s never cheap by the time you have paid for the venue, soft play, food, cake, party bags you can find you’ve easily spent nearly £300!
I decided it was time to look at what we can do differently. Opting for smaller more intimate parties with just a few of my children’s close friends and ordering party bags and fillers separately we saved a lot of money.
The last party we did we were aware of being more eco-friendly. Instead of plastic party bags I sourced out colourful canvas reusable party bags and then bought the fillers online.
Party Bag Fillers
The Card and Party Store have a fantastic range of party supplies and gifts. They recently sent us a few of their party supplies to review;
- 6 Parachute Men
- 8 Pack of Balloons
- 6 Packs of 8 Crayons
- 6 Party Boxes
- 4 Yoyo’s
- 12 Pack of Squishy Balls
The party boxes are a great way to ditch the plastic and they provide plenty of space for gifts and cake.
I love the squishy balls they super fun and would be a hit with the parents too, they’d be great as stress relievers. My children enjoyed throwing them and watching their shape change as they bounced off of things.
The Crayons offer a good variety of colours and are always going to go down well with children plus they can open the party box out to use as a canvas to draw on.
Yoyo’s & Parachute Men
The yoyo’s come in different colours and provide good old fashioned fun and the parachute men were a big hit with my son who liked to fly them off of the sofa!
When considering what to put in party bags, I like to put in something they can use, play with and read so I might add a little book to the party bag too.
Overall I am really pleased with the quality of the products we were sent and the wide variety the Card and Party store offer online including bubbles, pocket money toys, activity packs games books, inflatables and more.
