Football Party Inspiration

Morning! I hope you are all well and enjoying the half term holidays and had a fantastic Jubilee bank holiday weekend.  Just as we almost packed away those union jacks the European football championships kick off today.  So I thought today it would be perfect to share some football party inspiration.  There are plenty of options with hosting a football party, either at home, the local park or at a fotball club.  Many football clubs now offer special childrens parties, that invlove sometime kicking a ball about the beloved turf of your childs favourite club.  I know my own children have enjoyed several friends parties at our local footclub over the years. Yet hosting a football party at home can be just as fun, especially if your garden is large enough for a kick about or penalty shoot out.  Older children may prefer a football quiz in the style of A Question of Sport.  Or perhaps if the weather isn't great you could have a Subbuteo championship instead.  Fancy dress is easy as guests can wear their favourite football strip and the birthday cake could be a football pitch. 

I am sure you all have los of other ideas, so be sure to add suggestions in the comments below.  Also if you have a real football party you would like to share here on the blog, please send me an email .

Have a fantastic weekend,

Diamond Jubilee Keepsakes

Morning! The bank holiday weekend is almost upon us and I know we are all hoping the weather holds to avoid soggy bunting and sandwiches as we celebrate the Diamond Jubilee.  Keepsake gifts to celebrate such occasions are alot more stylish than when I was little, as I still have my special coin to celebrate the Silver Jubilee, even though I was very young when this was celebrated.  I am sure many of us will want to have something for ourselves or our children to remember this special year so I thought today I would do a quick round up of some great Diamond Jubilee commerative products.

So what will you be buying to commemerate The Queen's Diamond Jubilee? There is an abundance of products available and this is just a very tiny selection.

Have a wonderful weekend and I hope your celebrations are fabulous.  Be sure to email your photos of your street parties as we would love to share them here on the blog.
