Birthday Parties - Yummy Lollipop Party

Travelling through the Blogsphere we have come across The TomKat Studio blog and her great creations sold on Etsy. As parents we all know how difficult it is to come up with great ideas/themes for our kids' birthday parties.

One idea that Kim had come up with for her own daughter was a "Lollipop Party". The invitations were shaped like a lollipop with the birthday girl's name on it and all the details of the party. If you have the time you can do these yourself with a few pieces of colourful paper and a circle cutter or they can be bought from her Etsy shop! Kim also designed cupcake toppers and thank you tags ("thank you for being sweet") tied to the mini swirl lollipops!

As a centerpiece, Kim found these easy to make centerpieces (from Hostess with a Mostess). How cool are these, some jellybeans, some lollipops and you have it.

Now we all know how kids love to have sweets and cakes at birthday parties. These are just some ideas to make your child's birthday a delicious one.

For more birthday ideas/themes please visit The TomKat Studio, and if you need any invitations, favor tags, cupcake toppers & more you will find them at Kim's Etsy Shop!

When looking for kids shoes we as parents know what we want - comfort, fashionable and affordable. We are happy to introduce to you two mums - Jenny Celebrin and Yolanda La Gorce who know what parents want for their kids when it comes to footwear.

The YUNGINZ brand came to fruition in 2007 when Jenny Celebrin got frustrated with not being able to purchase trendy shoes in small sizes for her daughter. All the decent fashionable shoes seemed to only be available from a size 12 and upwards so the challenge was on!

Velcro fastenings and easy to use zips are the height of functionality and other ingenious features set YUNGINZ shoes apart from any other styles available in Australia today. Flexible non slip soles ensure safety, back heel tabs help little fingers put shoes on while sparkly diamante buckles and gold zippers bring a little bling into an outfit.

In colours, materials and styles that coordinate and mix and match with just about any outfit, YUNGINZ are ideal for any occasion and make the perfect gift.

A B Sea - Natural, Organic

Petit would like to introduce you to - a b sea clothes for babies - an eco-friendly clothing company, featuring luxurious, wrinkle-resistant, baby soft clothing, using 70% silk, 30% organic cotton, all of which is 100% washable! That's right, no hand washing required for these adorable delicates - and Petit is proud to be the sole distributor of these gorgeous clothing for Australia & New Zealand.

The clothing are soft & light and perfect for baby's sensitive skin, and great for use all year round. The fabric blend allows the clothing to breathe easy during the warmest summer months and holds in heat during the coldest winter months.

The luxurious collection of A B Sea includes the crew sweater & pants set, the hood blanket, hat, the hood sweater set, the sac, & the long onesea. Each item comes in several soft colours and logos, inspired by the sea and range in size from 3 to 24 months.

Why Organic?
The word 'organic' is used to describe fibers (like cotton) or food crops that are grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. Organic farms replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic pesticides and fertilizers, and encourage biologically diverse agriculture. Organic cotton clothing is best for babies. A baby's skin is five times thinner than an adult's skin - this means that they can absorb chemicals much more easily. Being softer too, it's a great choice for delicate skin.

Organic cotton is made from raw materials that have not been treated with unnecessary and damaging chemicals. Without nasty chemicals, organic cotton products are more biodegradable too. Organic clothing are healthy for baby - because of their smaller body size, differing metabolism and rapidly growing and developing systems, children are simply more vulnerable to the side effects of pesticides and chemicals. Some of the most widely used chemicals used to make cotton clothing (that we put next to our children’s skin) have been associated with skin irritations. Organic baby clothes are made from cotton grown without pesticides or chemicals, so they’re better for babies’ skin and health. Kind to delicate skin, organic baby clothes are exceptionally soft, pure, clean, hypoallergenic and non-irritating to babies’ skin. The softness and quality of organic cotton is unmatched, making it a perfect choice for your baby’s delicate skin.

Organic farms work the natural way - protecting wildlife and the environment - they don’t use chemicals or artificial fertilizers, so they don’t harm wild plants, wild animals or insects. Organic farming keeps the soil healthier and more fertile, the waters cleaner and less polluted and promotes a healthy environment.

Organic cotton is not only softer, but stronger as well. Unlike synthetics that pill, emit static electricity, prematurely age and trap perspiration, organic cotton wears well and is extremely breathable. Organic textiles come from sources we can trust. Farms are inspected by international bodies and must adhere to strict guidelines. By buying organically certified products, you can feel reassured that they have been made to meet strict quality standards

It's true that organic goods usually cost about 30% more to buy than conventional products. That's because organic farmers are driven by quality and ethics rather than speed and quantity. Crop yields are often slightly lower than on conventional farms, harvesting is usually done by hand, and crop rotation is practiced in line with organic certification. As it is initially difficult (practically and economically) to switch to organic methods, there are far fewer organic farms than conventional ones. It makes finding organic produce all the more difficult.
The gorgeous range will be available on-line soon. In the meantime if you need any more information please contact us at info[at]petit[dot]com[dot]au.
