2 WEEKS OUT

Get the décor ready

  • There are not many party goods with clouds and raindrop designs available in stores, but it is easy to make your own.
  • Use coloured pipe cleaners and bend them into raindrop shape- perfect to hang from the ceiling.
  • You could also cut raindrop  and cloud shapes out of felt and stick these onto a canvas and make raindrop cake toppers using some coloured paper and sosatie sticks.

1 WEEK OUT

Buy party favours

  • Look for sweets and gifts that will help set the scene.
  • Colourful Smarties in plastic bags remind us of little raindrops.
  • Character umbrellas are an affordable and useful gift for guests; give this instead of a take home goodie bag.

Get the food ready

  • Never forget the importance of something substantial for little guests to eat.
