Three children, all married, seven grandchildren and a large extended family add up to a calendar filled with birthday celebrations. I am very glad that I have moved beyond the stage of planning and running children's birthday parties.
Birthday party fun
Yes, they're fun but wow.. they're exhausting! And, much as I love Pinterest, the overload of beautifully presented party images are a lot to live up to.
As a grandma I have found that, although I don't organise the kids' birthday parties, I'm often asked if I could bring along a little something to add to the party table. And these days, a plate of fairy bread just doesn't cut it. (Again.. thanks, Pinterest!)
Feeling Fruity Printables
So... I was delighted when TinyMe created their Feeling Fruity party printables. The range includes fruity baskets, garland, cone wrappers, toppers and tags. Yes, they're wonderful for anyone organising a fruit-themed party. The range also includes some lovely customisable invitations.
They're also wonderful for anyone, like me, needing a special party-style plate of food. The printables make it so easy! It's even easy enough for the kids to create.
And the result???.... you'll be pleased to know that the tray of fruity edibles disappeared very quickly.
Life as a grandma.. it's no 'quiet, restful days in the rocking-chair'. It's filled with activity, excitement and lots of family fun. Please share it with me.
