we were so very lucky to have so many wonderful responses that our goodie bags were filled to the brim with amazing treats for all our guests!
We were able to work with printed.com to organise some flyers for each of our guests which featured a list of all our sponsors. printed also provided us with our beautiful stickers (designed by rachel) which made our goody bags look that little bit more special, and they even kindly gave each of our guests vouchers to use online, which will come in very handy as i am in need of more stickers and cards from them!
other treats hiding inside our goodie bags included glitter hair bows by crown&glory, beautiful cat and pug brooches, buttons and vintage cards from the wonderful ladybirdlikes, pretty pastel earrings from onetenzeroseven, super cute yawning donut from polka dot dreams, stickers and badges from alphabet bags, a delicious lip scrub from lush, an awesome hand drawn card by leigh from intwosandthrees, prints and stickers from charlotte vallance, and a whole host of greetings cards from the lovely likes of ohh deer, laura manfre, anna gwenllian, nicola rowlands, rebecca abell, nikki mcwilliams, green tulip, just bake, paper&chain, floss&mischeif and our wonderful host ohnorachio! i was also very lucky to bag a gorgeous selection of postcards by els from zerabifish .. yay!
our day was made extra beautiful by the addition of some frankly amazing decorations which were kindly provided by the sweet hostess ... we attempted to make some paper tassel bunting to decorate the room but they paled in comparison to the incredible one melissa sent over, which we proudly strung over the prize draw table! if you are looking for party decorations i thoroughly recommend having a peek at their store, as you won't be disappointed.
not only were our drinks provided by the wonderful cawston press, the lovely folk at lactose free sent us over *tons* of vouchers to use for our spread. we were able to make the sandwiches, cakes, icecream and other sweet treats all lactose free for people like myself with fussy tummies. thanks guys!
we were also very kindly gifted some beautiful bamboo plates and cutlery from a company called green tulip, which rachel raves about - and now i know why! they're completely natural, organic, sustainable, recycled and totally biodegradable. they are in every possible way a whole lot nicer than their nasty plastic cousins!
i think it's pretty safe to say our party wouldn't have been half as wonderful without the amazing help of all of our awesome sponsors, so i would like to say a big fat thank you to everyone who helped us out! being a small business owner myself, i know it can sometimes be difficult to support small events like this, so i throughly appreciate all the treats we were so kindly given, and it's been super to see how much our guests truly loved all the goodies too. it's been great reading all your blog posts!
