Working with Ice The Cake

Since Life's A Celebration was launched back in November 2011 we've had the honour of working with Ice The Cake, a leading UK wedding directory with hand picked credible UK wedding suppliers. 

Sue from Ice The Cake recently made a massive announcement! Ice the Cake has now found a home to call it's own. Sue excitedly announced the launch of the brand new ITC hub.

This is going to be a fabulous showroom of treats, especially for people planning a wedding or special event.

The hub is going to be based in the picturesque village of Edleborough, Buckinghamshire (not far from Whipsnade Zoo). Sue and her team will be converting a gorgeous little barn into something really special.

There is going to be loads of products on display - including our personalised wedding activity bags. So anybody visiting the hub will be able to get loads of inspiration for their special day.

There's also going to be wedding industry experts running masterclasses on their specialist subjects and loads of wedding planning advice too. Sue will also be inviting craft experts to run craft workshops enabling you to learn new skills such as tiara making, wedding flowers, cake decorating, hair and make up, stationery, first dance rehearsals, singing and loads more.

Children's parties on a budget

Here at Life’s A Celebration we’re on a mission to make your next party as stress free as possible. If you have a child’s party coming up today we’re chatting about how to make them as affordable as possible. Here’s our top tips on how to make the party one to remember but one that won’t break the bank either. Don't forget to set your budget before you start!

1)      Invites – these don’t need to be anything fancy. You could even design them yourself and print them off.  There is a great tool online called Pic Monkey. This is a free tool that allows you to edit your own photos. It’s really straightforward to use with very effective end results. Give it a go!
Coming very soon we’re going to be offering free downloadable invites on our website too. I’ll let you know as soon as they’re ready.

2)      Venue – have a chat with other parents in the school yard and see where they have booked for their children’s party venue. Ring round the local church halls and see what prices they can do. For larger parties this can usually work out as a very cost effective way of doing it. If you are hosting a smaller party then stay at home and do this. Have you seen our blog post about hosting a party at home?

3)      Entertainment – this is normally the most expensive part of a party. However have you thought about doing this yourself? The idea of this fills most parents with dread but it shouldn’t. We were all children once and kids today still like to do the same things that you and I do when we were children. Children love traditional games. If you are struggling for games ideas drop me a line and I’ll send you a free party games pack. Have you also seen our blog post about entertaining the children yourself at aparty?

4)      Take a CD of music to the venue and play music to dance to. Think of ‘action’ songs that the children can dance along to. Songs that are really popular are things like;

  • Superman – Black Lace·        
  • The Fast Food Song (you know the one……. A Pizza hut, a Pizza hut, Kentucky Fried Chicken  and a Pizza Hut)
  • Agadoo – Black Lace
  • YMCA
  • Gangnam Style (obviously)
  • Cha Cha Slide
  • Macarena

Stand in front of the kids and do the actions for them. Children love to see grown ups making a fool of themselves. Go on - dance in front of the kids. They’ll love you for it and it’s only 2 hours out of your life!

5)      Craft activities for the children to do. This is a relatively inexpensive way of keeping the children occupied for a long time. Go to your local discount store and buy all kinds of craft materials and paper and get the children gluing, sticking, cutting, colouring. If you’re a parent you’ll know that children will sit and do this for a long time. If you have a party theme then you’ll probably be able to find pictures on line for them to colour in. For example if it’s a princess and pirate party then find some princess and pirate templates online – I guarantee the children will really enjoy this.

6)      Keep the food easy. Children don’t need fancy food. The older the children are the less time they want to sit eating at a party anyway.

7)      Party bags – these don’t have to be expensive. Try and be a bit creative with these too! If you’re going to do craft activities with the children then why not hand out paper bags for the children to decorate themselves then fill them with sweets and a toy before they leave. If you need some help with the party bags then why not give me a shout. We have party bags starting from £1.50 each. We can work any theme and any budget. Why not drop me an email and we’ll have a chat.

Enjoy the tips. And don't forget for all your party supplies all you need to do is get in touch with me.

Children at your wedding

Children at a Wedding

So he’s got down on bended knee, you’re all excited and busy planning your big day and then somebody asks the dreaded question “will you be having children at the wedding?”

There’s no denying that this can sometimes be a bit of a contentious issue; some think it’s an absolute necessity and that weddings are a celebration for all to enjoy whereas others think that having small people running around creating noise and leaving a trail of destruction in their wake doesn’t bear thinking about. The important thing to remember is that neither opinion is right and neither opinion is wrong.

Lots of people are choosing to marry later in life and as such their friends and family may already have children and this can potentially make things more difficult if you feel obliged to invite their children to the Big Day (especially if you don’t want to!). My advice would be to make the decision early and then if you do decide that children are not invited I would make this quite clear on the invites to avoid any confusion. You might even hear a collective cheer from the parents as they have a child free day and can completely enjoy themselves without having tired, bored & grumpy children in tow.

If you decide that children are invited then it might be a good idea to have a think about how you can keep them entertained on the day so they feel included in the celebrations. You’ll find that most children migrate to each other over the course of a day even if they don’t know each other at the beginning of the day and it might be good to provide them with games that they can play together.

All in all my advice would be that your wedding is just that – yours! So you must make the decision that you feel is right for you. If you want children there then invite them if you don’t want children there then don’t. As long as things are dealt with sensitively then most people understand and just want you to have a fantastic day that you will both cherish and remember for the rest of your life.

If you’re looking for things to keep the children at your wedding entertained then why not drop me a line. Here at Life’s A Celebration we have some gorgeous wedding activity bags filled with loads of things for the children to make and do.

If you want to meet with me directly to discuss this then why not pop by my studio at 2-4 Wesley Street, Consett. Drop me an email on and we’ll pop some time in the diary for you to drop in and chat.

If you’re not local, we work with brides all over the UK. We can work to your colour scheme, budget and how many children will be at your wedding. So why not drop me a line on and we’ll chat.

Speak to you soon.

Planning for the North East Baby and Toddler Show

Our studio is a hive of activity and I am excited! On 16th March I will be taking myself off to The North East Baby and Toddler show. This event starts the beginning of a new year for Life's A Celebration and I'm really looking forward to meeting all the parents, parents-to-be, grandparents and other exhibitors.

We will be offering loads of freebies and special discounts on the day!

I am busy putting together 100 party bags for the first 100 people that sign up to our mailing list, organising organza bags filled with mini eggs for those people that purchase or pre-book a party box on the day.

We've got a giant baby bottle filled with Jelly Babies and whoever gets the number of Jelly Babies correct will receive a special prize!

We're also going to be offering loads of special discounts for products bought on the day too.

All in all, loads of freebies up for grabs and loads of money off too!
It's also been a scurry of activity getting our new business address onto our flyers. My daughter has been roped into this task! Payment will be mini eggs!

The stand that I've taken is 1m x 3m and I've also been busy designing posters to put on the booth behind me.

Here are a few of the designs. What do you think?


They will be sent to the printers (hopefully) today.
There are going to be loads of exhibitors at the event including my friends The Cool Rule Company and Magic Mummies.

I will be there all day and will have plenty of baby shower party boxes and birthday party boxes for the little ones. I will also be taking orders for our other products so if anybody is getting married and needs something to entertain the children on the day or if anybody has a grown up birthday party coming up.
I will also be personalising party bags for the kids on the day!

If you have a special event coming up and needs some friendly hints and tips then pop across and have a chat. I'm always happy to give you party ideas and will help you wherever I can.
I really love events like this that give businesses a chance to get out and meet some lovely families.
Massive thanks to my friend Carrie Dennison from Press for Design. She has worked tirelessly with me designing the stand and will be there with me for setting up the booth.
So if you're in the North East on 16th March then pop along to the North East Baby and Toddler Show at Newcastle Falcons, NE13 8AF and say hi!

See you there.

Mother's Day Guest Blogger - Fran from Perspective

We're still celebrating all the mums in business out there. Mother's Day is rapidly approaching and we have our fabulous Mother's Day Bags available to buy for only £9.99. These colourable bags come with a pack of fabric pens so the kids can make a totally unique present for mum. Just click on the buy now tab above.

Today we're chatting to my good friend Fran from Perspective Business Centres. Have a read about what she has to say about The Joys of Working from Home. 

"I'm Fran Williams and, for my sins, I'm MD of 2 local businesses; a wife and a mum to a teenage daughter, 4 dogs, 3 cats and an alpaca! 

Having done the 'career woman' bit, I took stock of my life 10 years ago and, as a newly single mum, decided that something had to change.  I'd spent the first 6 years of my daughter's life working full-time.  Now it was time to redress the balance …

I decided it would be lovely to work from home, and I set up a payroll and bookkeeping business.  It was a perfect scenario.  I got to do the school runs, and to go to sports days and nativity plays and never got that guilt thing that working mums get.  Most of my clients were local, so I simply worked between 9.00 am – 3.00 pm, so I could be a perfect mum to my little girl.  It also meant that I could be there if Jennifer was poorly.

My clients were lovely, and I had a great time working from their premises or homes.  Always well look after by my clients, it was back to a stark reality on those days I was working from my own office (when I say office, I mean the room between the living room and the 'lean-to' kitchen – I think the proper term is dining room, but that's just semantics).  Don't get me wrong, my office was lovely and the view of the back garden was super.  The view into the kitchen of my Cavalier King Charles spaniel fast asleep in the sink was a small distraction.  It wasn't all bad, as the dog didn't always sleep in the sink.  Sometimes he slept on my desk, keeping my papers tidy and performing other office junior type roles.

Bored with only a dim spaniel for company during the day, and needing some intelligent conversation, I decided I needed to get out of the house more and found a part-time job.  Perfect.

Except now I couldn't fit my clients' work into 6 hours a day.  Never mind, there was always the weekends and evenings, and clients could drop their books off at my home.  Fantastic.  But did I really want clients visiting my home, particularly when I had a small child in the house?  Not ideal, but ok. 

Fast-forward 10 years.

Hubby and I have just launched a new business centre in Consett.  One of the main markets we are reaching out to is people who don't want (or can't afford) a full-time office of their own.  They maybe want a hot desk for a day, or an office one day a week.
I wish I'd been able to hot desk 10 years ago!

During Consett's snowmageddon in January 2013, I conducted an experiment and worked from home for a day.

I started work in my office at 7.00 am (ok, dining room) and all was fantastic for at least 2 hours until the dog fell asleep on my work papers.  Said dog then decided to search my briefcase and found some goodies, which he sat on and distracted me by glowering all morning.  Lunchtime came and went.  At 2 pm, I went into the living room to work on some social media – horizontal social media, on the sofa.  At 5 pm, hubby returned home and somehow I was still on a horizontal plane.

Yes, working for yourself is fantastic and working from home can work amazingly well.  What I have learnt is that sometimes it is nice to have some professional space, where your dog can't be a paperweight or a distraction!  For anyone curious enough, Barbilla the alpaca is on livery.  Just as well because she is so adorable, I would never get any work done."


The Perspective team in the break-out zone - no spaniels in sight!

Thanks for your words Fran. I was honoured to get an invite to the launch of the Perspective Business Centre and I can honestly say it is fantastic. The team are so welcoming and have created a lovely environment in which you could work.

Speak to you soon my friends.

Mother Day guest blogger - Anne from Gift in a Tin

We're still celebrating our Mums in Business. Mother's Day is rapidly approaching and don't forget about our gorgeous colourable bags! You can now buy them straight from our "Buy Now" tab above! At only £9.99 (including a pack of fabric pens) they are absolutely ideal for  a totally unique gift for mum!
Anyway today our guest blogger is Anne Livesey from Gift in a Tin. Have a read what she has to say about running her own business.

"Working as an Enterprise Coach, I always tell my clients “Be prepared to be Salesperson, Accountant, Head of Dispatch, Office Administrator and Tea Maker all rolled into one”.
Well today, running my own e-commerce business, I have been to the Post Office three times (not bad planning, just last minute orders with clients wanting next day delivery); downloaded logos from being a Finalist at Gift of the Year with my Garden Tin, so I can upload onto the website; ordered some beautiful new diffusers to expand my range of Scent Tins; starting building a database of garden centres; uploaded some new pics to the site, spoke to the web guys about developing the ‘coupon area’ on the site for a fab new offer site being launched in March (very excited); packed and delivered a wholesale order; ordered some catalogues for pet toys and food (the newest Gift Tins) oh..and also made a couple of cups of hot water and a milkshake - liquid diet (not the relaxing variety you understand, but the healthy - and very boring - variety) so I can get into a nice dress for our daughter’s wedding in November!
That seems like a very long paragraph and it is just a paraphrase of what’s happened today! I forgot to mention that I’ve also been in discussions about going on the One Show too....(get me...autographs will be available).

And I also booked the Hen Night venue, picked up some cardboard letters to decorate and just started getting some wedding favours ready to go out for a bride next week.

And finally, walked the dogs three times and chase an unruly cockerel around the paddock as he was refusing to go back in the hut for the night. It’s all good exercise...

So have I been busy? Mmmm, feels like it. Have I been juggling all those balls in the air?Certainly. Have I had fun? YES. I love being able to plan my day, although it seems to have organically evolved today as I look at the list which only has four items ticked off today and still seven items for starter’s orders tomorrow morning! Being self employed takes some grit and determination, and the will to pick yourself up if things don’t go right, and also pat yourself on the back when they do.

So tomorrow is planned with the remaining seven items to start on, although, I’ve just remembered I am meeting a lovely new candle supplier tomorrow at I guess tomorrow possibly won’t pan out the way I planned either - mange tout (as Del Boy might say...)"
Thank you so much for your words Anne!
Speak to you soon my friends

Mother's Day Guest Bloggers - Claire from Magic Mummies

With half term over and the kids back to school, mums up and down the land breathe a sigh of relief. Mother's Day is nearly upon us and it's your day to put your feet and be waited on hand and foot (will that happen in your house??). If you're looking for a really special present for a mum in your life then check out our colourable Mother's Day bags. Available to buy on our 'Buy Now' tab above!

Today's mum in business is Claire Iles from Magic Mummies. Have a read what she has to say about School Holiday Challenges! Have a read about what she has to say!

"Hi, I am Claire and I set up Magic Mummies last year to provide undercover services for busy mums, from homemade food, to costumes to party planning we are every mums best kept secret.  I first came up with the idea of Magic Mummies when I was making a World Book Day costume for my eldest.  It was her first year in primary school and I was astounded at the number of dress up days and cake days that took place.  I had already been making costumes and cakes for friends to pass off as their own, so I thought why not start a business based on that concept?  All items are supplied discreetly to a location of your choice so you can take the credit.  I love what I do and I love that it can give help to busy mums and joy to children.  I love home baking and generally anything handmade or homemade and there’s always an excuse for a party in our house!  However I, like any other working mum, find it challenging to balance home and work, especially during school holidays when the kids look forward to spending time doing fun things with me. 
March is due to be a busy month for Magic Mummies with World Book Day, and Comic Relief, but especially that incredibly special day, Mothers Day where among other things, Magic Mummies are selling cupcake bouquets.  I was faced with being extremely busy at work and highly in demand at home.  As half term approached I tried to plan how I was going to fit everything in….first thoughts?.....what did mumpreneurs do before iphones were around to check emails, Facebook etc.  Much of the first part of half term was spent juggling childcare, work and kids and staying up way past my bed time to get things done.  Mid-week I had the ingenious idea kids to a local soft play where I would get a whole two hours work done while they played.  And so armed with my laptop, I was sure I would have lots of my to-do list ticked off soon.  What I was faced with was complete mayhem as I quickly realised the likelihood of my getting some work done was slim.  And I was right, between screams because the kids had clashed heads and constant complaints they were hungry, I got one measly thing ticked off my list.  Never mind…the kids were happy and that’s the main thing.  And so the juggling childcare, work, kids continued until Friday when we finished our fabulous week of with a full day of ice skating and learning and centre for life, we returned exhausted and happy.
With the half term madness almost over I would definitely say this half term has been challenging yet brilliant, a lesson in juggling home and work life and I’ve loved every minute of it!  That’s why Magic Mummies is so valuable to working mums; it gives time back so you can spend time with the people who matter most.  And so back to normal next week, but not before we finish off half term with a day of serious sledging fun!


Thanks for your words Claire! If you need a secret mummy service then why not get in touch with Claire!

See you soon my friends

Mother's Day Guest Blog - Libby from The Dressing Up Chest

Hello my friends!

As you know we're celebrating Mothers this month with some 'mums in business'. If you're looking for something a bit different this Mother's Day then don't forget about our wonderful colour-in-able Mother's Day Bags. Perfect for something totally unique for mum! To buy just click on the Buy Now tab above! Easy peasy!

Today it is the turn of Libby from The Dressing Up Chest to have a chat about running her business. Have a read and check out the pictures of Libby's fab work!

"Hi everyone.  I am Libby and my business is called the Dressing Up Chest.  For the past 3 ½ years I have been making costumes for children for dressing up, fancy dress and for stage and dance schools.

My own children are grown up now - although they still ask me to make costumes for music festivals and fancy dress parties.  When they were younger I enjoyed nothing more than making costumes for them to play in and for all the school plays and dance shows they took part in.  I thought that the perfect solution once I had more time was to create costumes for other people’s children where parents often don’t have the time and for those who just prefer not to make.


It seems that children love nothing more than dressing up and I have seen a huge increase in the number of themed parties from pirates and princesses to superheroes and book characters.  Pirates remain a firm favourite with boys and girls.  I have also noticed more girls defying stereotype and asking for knight’s tabards and tailcoats rather than the more traditional fairy princess costume.



I am often asked to make costumes of characters which simply aren’t available in high street fancy dress shops. I love a challenge and haven’t been beaten yet! I have made a giant star, a hedgehog, Lola’s Alligator (Charlie and Lola books), Captain Adorable (CBBC) and I am currently making Meg the Witch (Meg and Mog).  When children are given a leading role in the school play parents are also delighted to be able to have a good quality costume made for the star of the show to shine in. This Christmas I was particularly busy making sheep and shepherds.


I have always love dance and one of my favourite jobs is making costumes for excited little girls and boys about to showcase their talents on stage for their proud parents.  Schools too seem to be encouraging children to dress up to bring their History lessons to life and I have made endless numbers of Victorian maid’s mob caps and aprons, Tudor dresses and costumes for Boudicca!


Children can often be seen dressed up in character in the supermarket.  My costumes are perfect for this as they are made from good quality fabrics and trimmings and are all washable. I like to think of them as themed clothing rather than fancy dress as they are made in exactly the same way as regular clothing but just with a style of their own.

You can take a look at my costumes at but if you would like something completely different please contact me at and I will happily design something unique just for your boy or girl."


Thanks Libby for your words! Fab costumes!

Speak to you soon my friends!

Mother's Day Guest Blog - Vikki King from MiniMe Baby

With the launch of our Mother's Day bags Life's A Celebration is celebrating Mums in business this month.
Today's Mum in Business is Vikki King from MiniMe Baby. Have a read what Vikki has to say!
Who is MiniMe Baby?
I am Vikki, a Mum to two wonderful children and wife to a very understanding and patient husband. My son is 16 and scarily just about to complete his moped test (scared as I am for his safety I can’t not let him get one as I too had a moped at 16, with dreams of owning a motorbike one day. That bit never happened though) and my daughter, Libby was born last year in the very early hours of Halloween, so we nicknamed her pumpkin as she suits orange really well.

We setup MiniMe Baby back in July 2012, when I was 6 months pregnant. It was our vision to bring parents affordable clothing for 0-8 years and gifts that were also either organic, ethical or UK manufactured. So determined was I to start trading before our daughter was born, that from the moment we finally decided to go for our dreams it only took me 7 weeks to launch our website and visit our first trade show. In fact the website went live the night before our first visit to the trade show and our business cards were still hot off the press.
 Our business has since evolved slightly and I am now obsessed with everything UK Handmade and with fabric. 2013 see’s MiniMe Baby searching out small crafters to bring you unique and lovingly created clothes and gifts. I have found a passion and I love working with other small businesses.
Bebby Girls and Bebby Boys wall art is a great example of this. They are created by a very talented mum and school teacher, Rebecca McKay. Who found me on Twitter.

New stock sourced, but still to be added to the website so far this year includes; C.E certified sock monkeys, sock bunnies, sock tigers, up cycled bags, felt keyring/ bag charms, hair accessories and nursery decorations.

On our search for new stock of british products and brands we are proud to have found  Zippy Suits:  Zippy Suits are luxuriously soft sleep suits with no poppers (genius idea I think) Zippy Suits have a single zip to fasten the sleep suit instead of many pairs of poppers. Helpful when changing any little wriggler! Also helpful for night time changing in dim light and for parents with arthritis. They have an envelope neckline to ensure a snug fit for baby whilst being easy for dressing. Available in Sizes: 3-6m, 6-9m, 9-12m & 12-18m and currently available in 4 fab colours (2 blue, 2 pink).
Matching dribble bibs are also available

Please feel free to browse our pages, we are especially proud of our Reviews tab; which links to independent blogs and videos of products we stock. The Info tab; has also been setup to give helpful impartial information for parents covering topics such as; Breastfeeding, Real Nappies; Reading; Sleeping; Family days out. These areas are constantly being updated so please let me know if there is a topic that you would like adding and I will research it for you.

Working around a baby is difficult and tiring but if you believe in yourself and your business I think that it is worth persevering to reach your dreams, and that is exactly what MiniMe Baby is doing….never give up on your own dreams.
