Mama Mondays – A little something special this party season

The end of the year is coming around so quickly and so are all the birthday and party invitations. I have a couple of special birthdays to plan for and was so excited to get my hands on some of these illuminated LED balloons courtesy of Nuffnang and Illooms Balloons.

For both the young and young at heart, balloons have always been a sign of celebration and fun times with loved ones. These Illooms Balloons illuminated our decking area making everything look so pretty and festive as we tested them out the other night. I am pleased to report back that they were a hit! They come in such bright colors and even ones with marbled swirls on them – there are designs to suit all occasions. When you pull the tag, the magic happens as the LED (light emitting diode) is activated. Like a cross between a glowstick and a balloon, this year’s party season just got turned up a notch!
Backyard party Illooms balloons reviewWe tested out the Illooms Balloons when our new pergola was completed and I can’t wait to use them for a couple of parties coming up in the next month!

Not only was my little almost-three-old toddler super excited by these “magic balloons” we blew up for him, but my cousins were just as impressed. It says on the packet that they last for up to 15 hours – I blew up one of the alien themed ones and it lasted five days with the light still faintly glowing by the fifth day!

If you want to add an easy pop of colour and light to your next party to make it extra special, these Illooms Balloons are now available at your local Big W, Kmart and Woolworths stores!

Matchy-matchy shoes with Daddy

Found these pics on my messy desktop and can’t believe they were taken exactly a year ago. One of my favourite things to do is watch the hubby playing around with our little one. They can go for hours running around or playing with cars with Mr D chattering away non-stop!

They wore:

-blue flannelette shirt from Pumpkin Patch
– printed tee from Target
– jeans from Cotton On Kids
– hi tops from Charlie & Me (these are so sturdy and easy to wear – Mr D has been wearing them for over a year now!)

– black jacket from FCUK
– tee from Zara
– jeans and shoes from Topman
