A big thank you to Amanda Woods of Ojoli for a big week of event ideas and inspiring moodboards! The Ojoli Flea Market opens next week - make sure you pop over and check it out. Thanks again Amanda! - Jenny x

Paper Dolls and Presse Play-date Moodboard - perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

A little daggy alliteration to finish the week off with - 'paper dolls and presse play-date'!

When I was little I always enjoyed playing with my paper doll cut-outs far more than with my one and only plastic barbie doll.  They offered far imaginative combinations and possibilities.

This idea would be really sweet as a birthday party, or just an ordinary play-date.

Lots of lovely treats here - Belvoir Fruit Farms presses, The Voyagers Paper Doll Set designed by Maia Larkin and cards by TMOD

Admittedly, I've never actually sampled 'Belvoir fruit farms' presses. Like many, I am completely sold on their beautiful labels and packaging. I do like the fact though that their presses contain no artificial flavours, colours or sweeteners. This surely must mean they are a little healthier than regular Cottee's cordial.  In Australia, you can purchase bottles from Thirst for life.

The oh-so clever and talented Maia Larkin designed 'The Voyagers Paper Doll Set' featuring Mathilde and Evelyne. I love her modern design twist. The deluxe set includes two hand-illustrated dolls and their animal companions, plus eight pages of exotic outfits, all packaged for adventure around the world (all available from Ojoli Flea Market next week!).

Thank you so much to Lucy and Jenny for having me as a guest this week.

I've just tried t0 feature some simple event ideas and concepts that span all ages and occasions - I hope you can use some of these ideas for your next event.

PS. I'm very excited to be launching the 'Ojoli Flea Market' next Monday, 6th June. If you have a moment, I would love for you to take a peek!
