With Harry’s and Harriet’s birthdays coming up at the end of the year, the hunt has been on to provide a fun day for the kids. Georgie has been on the look out for a fun theme which can also look, well, lovely and more tasteful than the many options out there. After much searching the wonderful Kit & Caboodle was discovered.
Kit & Caboodle create themed party boxes with optional extras which as they say so succinctly is the “busy parents’ secret weapon”. It takes all the stress out of sourcing party accessories to make the day memorable. The two mums who launched this ingenious idea have thought of everything. You just add the food and kids. The themes available are…
Chocolate Factory Party (yum)
Unicorn Party (make a wish)
Galaxy Party (may the force be with you)
Dinosaur Party (for the roar of it)
Science Lab Party (danger!)
They are even the first party supplier to be awarded the Toymark Award for Good Practice this year from Let Toys Be Toys as they have not categorized their party kits by gender.
If you purchase a themed box (for eight for twelve people) do you really get everything you need?…well, yes. Inside is (deep breath)…the decorations (perfectly chosen to go with the theme of choice), the party table accessories (plates, cups, straws, napkins and even a table cover and confetti), dress up items to make the kids feel completely involved from the the moment they arrive, games (three activities with props, instructions and prizes), the party bag (with a swirly lollipop and bags for the kids’ loot) and the all important thank you cards.
Once you have ordered your themed box, you can add on extras such as a pass the parcel, cake decorating kit, invitations and even free printables to download and use (above is the Science Lab themed pass the parcel and cake decorations). The ladies will even email you a party tips information sheet relevant to your theme to help you run the lead ups and the actual party smoothly (with some extra game ideas). Kit & Caboodle have made the thought of throwing a kids’ party relatively easy and well thought out, when usually most of us would be recoiling in horror and the thought and realisation that your precious little one wants their friends to descend on your home and create sugar fuelled pandemonium.
Watch this space for more to come on this exciting new brand. In the meantime, see here for more details and if you are tempted, you can get a 10% discount by quoting “MMPARTY“. We can also recommend their Pinterest boards (who doesn’t love Pinterest??…see here) for some brilliant ideas for making the party go with a bang (not literally, that would involve fire engines and lots of explaining to parents). The ladies behind Kit & Caboodle certainly have all bases covered!
