Favourite Finds - Bike Track in Sydney

A girlfriend is having her son's party at this great venue, Sydney Park Bike Track in Erskineville. It's a dedicated bike track with traffic lights, pedestrian crossing and footpaths, my boys can't wait! Do you know any great inexpensive venues to hold a children's party?

The ultimate PIRATE SHIP!

One very clever mum got 'all hands on deck' and created this fabulous Pirate ship from recycled plywood and old packing crates. An old outdoor teak table was used to create the 'central' deck which comfortably sat 24 children. This is not only the ULTIMATE pirate ship but also great play equipment which could be used again on many summer afternoons with little pirate mates.

Ahoy there me hearties, great news is that similar constructions are now available to order. Send this clever mum an email here or visit www.munchkintables.com.au

Decor on a shoestring budget

I helped a fellow mum with the table settings for a School Fundraiser located in the school hall. The budget was $150 for 13 tables. The inspiration came from Magnolia's Square's exquisite styling. We bought striped material from Spotlight for $10 metre. Scissors Paper Cake bottles and bottles/jars collected by mum's for centrepieces and filled them with single stem flowers. The 'sweets' table also had the same fabric as a tablecloth, Kraft wrapping paper was used to cover the not-so-pretty wall and paper doilies taped together for paper prettiness. Discarded tomato pasta sauce jars covered in Kraft and tied with twine created inexpensive vases. Best of all the night was a huge success!

Favourite Finds: Heaven on a Stick

My boys are not big on lollies or chocolates but icy treats are another story, they could eat ice -blocks for breakfast, lunch and dinner if possible. As found on LMNOP , Popbar located in New York, is filled with handcrafted gelato on a stick made using all natural ingredients. This would have to be their favourite place in the world!
