I really had a dream come true yesterday!! Seeing my work on national television..Excited doesn’t even begin to explain it.. How did it come about you ask? Well…
My very good friend is a facebook fan of Nanny Robina who as you may know is a parenting expert on many different shows including CityLine..Well Nanny Robina just happened to put out an open call for party designers for invitations and loot bags…this would all be a part of the birthday party segment that aired on Wednesday July 18th..
Having such a great friend she thought of my shop right away and forwarded the information to me.. You can only imagine how quickly I jumped at the opportunity and emailed our favorite nanny.. Knowing that many other great party designers would be sending their best work this opportunity was more like a shot in the dark…
Well that shot in the dark turned out to be my reality!!! Nanny Robina chose me to design, make and fill loot bags for 5 special little kids that would be appearing on the show!! ~insert happy dance~ Which a few of my neighbours witnessed me do in the middle of the street..
So this was a garden theme party with a focus on caterpillars… I was told it was to be gender neutral and luckily picked the right colour for the project…green! Thinking about how to represent yourself on tv is a scary thought.. So I went with what I know…personalizing everything and making fun designs for kids and parents.. I also knew that they wanted me to fill the loot bags so my usual small loot bags just wouldn’t do.. These bags are brand new and nice and big for lots of items.. Personalized with each child’s name printed on their loot bags..Nanny Robina was nice enough to share the children’s names with me that were appearing on the show..
I also included gift tags for the loot bags that turned out perfectly and can be used for any event..
Keeping with the garden theme I filled each bag with gardening fun tools and seeds for these party goers.. Each child received 2 bags of vegetable seeds to plant and grow at home.. I designed treat bag toppers to place each seed pack in the loot bag.. 2 gardening tools and a plastic a small watering can were in each bag.. And I couldn’t resist including some fruit flavored candies..
