    Easter usually means one thing - kids high on chocolate! But there are so many great alternatives out there now that make beautiful Easter gifts. I thought I'd round up some of my favourites that cater to a range of different age groups and make the perfect chocolate-free gift, or could be a special addition to the Easter egg hunt!

    Making family traditions at Christmas time is one of my favourite things – it really helps us to remember the true spirit of Christmas and not get swept up in the spending of money and general craziness of the season. I've compiled a list of some of my favourite traditions, and am sharing a bit about our family Christmas tradition too.

    ‘Teddy bear’s picnic’ First birthday party theme

    This was such a fun party to plan, and the teddy bear picnic theme is perfect for a first birthday. With most children this age still crawling, toys on picnic blankets and cuddly teddy bears are perfect! This makes for a great morning or afternoon tea party, and the colours can be easily adapted to suit your taste.
