Sun, Sea, Surf...a Give Away and Beach Themed Birthdays



A short while ago my folks were fortunate enough to attend a friend's 60th birthday in the middle of England. It was a beach party theme with a sea sand floor, upside down surfboards for tables..and even members of the Beach Boys on stage to sing their old hits.


Now I'm hosting a children's beach themed party of my own and while I can't quite offer the Beach Boys or any of the other little luxuries, I've put together these glass bottles with some beach sand and the invitation rolled up inside...and some gorgeous sea themed Incomparable buttons wrapped around with gold ribbon.


There will be various activity stations for the kids:  
fabric painting onto T-shirts:


as well as painting and glueing together a wooden picture board with sea buttons:


and making cute framed pictures to take home for mum:


 Hosted in our new button barn, the kids will have a huge scratch patch of beach buttons to choose from...


...and they're not the only ones, because we are giving away 10 sets of assorted Incomparable sea buttons to 10 people who follow our blog by email anywhere in the world...if you currently follow us using GFC, you can easily sign up to follow us by email on the left hand bar on the blog. 
This give away will close at midnight on Sunday 26th May.


Of course on the menu is fish fingers! pie for lunch! :)
