As you know Emmy just had her 8th Birthday, she had been counting down the days since she went to bed on Christmas day. If she could have remembered to make a count down calendar she would have as I don’t think there was anyone who she didn’t tell the number of days until her birthday.
I love the whole process of planning the kids birthdays, from the choosing the presents, which I do throughout the year grabbing bargains as I see them to choosing their cards and wrapping the presents.
I prefer wrapping their birthday presents to Christmas presents as there are far less of them.
This year a lovely company Dom and Geri got in touch to introduce me to their personalised items for all occasions. With Emmy’s birthday approaching at that time it was a perfect opportunity to create some personalised items for her.
Searching the website I came across their banners and they were wonderful, they have some for all occasions from Christmas, aged birthdays, Thank you messages and many more. I chose a plain birthday banner so that I would be able to use it every year. I picked one of my favourite pictures of Emmy and added the wording I wanted “Happy Birthday Emmy”.
I then went over to chose a card and some wrapping paper – with so many to chose from it was difficult to narrow down my choice, as with the banners there are lots of options to chose from, something for all occasions.
I chose 2 pictures to go on Emmy’s card and chose matching wrapping paper to go with it. These were the pictures I chose for the items.
These fitted perfectly onto the card and the wrapping paper – and one on the banner too.
Making them up was very easy – chose your picture, add your personalisation and add to your basket. Once ordered these arrived beautifully packaged within 3 days. They come rolled in a tube so as to not get damaged and the banner can be rolled back up and kept there for next year to be used again.
Today has been about getting birthday ready for Sunday. Emmy will be 8! I’m not sure how that’s happened tbh, there are times I could have disowned her for tantrums and attitude but that’s a lot to do with changing hormones and finding her footing again after moving to juniors. On the whole she’s my best friend Wrapping paper from @domandgeri
Emmy was really pleased with her personalised items and I will certainly be using this company again. The quality was really good and the print quality amazing.
