#TBT : Preparations for craft party 2015

April 22, 2016

We just received the infor and dates for Craft Party 2016 and despite the fact that the dates fall onto the month of Ramadan, (as predicted ;p), we are super psych!!

Let’s take a throwback and a peak at what the preps of 2015 were..

 

Last year, the theme was Paper taking Shape. And paper was not our forte ;p Thankfully for us, we found and collaborated with talented crafters. They are Azallea Craft-Smiths, The Cotton Shoppe, Ozzy and Lulu, The Artbug, Rough Beauty and Noruyo Creations, who helped to contribute to the execution of the party this year.

Here’s what went behind Simply for Love’s scene

 

 

 

Make sure you mobilise the crowd at home to help out! ;p

We had a little hiccup getting the sponsors on the drinks at the last minute so…. the night before, we made a lemonade stand!

GOODIE BAGS!

 

Similar to last year’s party, we designed some stickers for our participants.

Can you see how focused they are?

Next, we prepared our sponsored items.

The goodie bags were also contributed by other local crafters, including Alfie De Meow, Azallea-Craftsmiths, Noruyo Creations, Ozzy and Lulu, The Cotton Shoppe, Bytheartbug, ParadeMade and many more!

 

We were very happy with our goodie bag. Then, we realised that these are not for kids to enjoy! So, the mommy in me and the ‘aunties’ in the girls, we went out and bought snacks and fun stuff for the goodie bags for the kids!

Yay! It’s party time for them too! Including a paper ball! How cool (and nostalgic) is that?

Here’s the one for the first 50 adult participant

 

 

 

 

The rest happened on the actual day of the party as seen in post below!
