Hello and welcome to Mook & Lulu’s blog. Thank you for having a look.
I’m Sam and I’m a busy working mum to two beautiful young girls – Mook and Lulu, well Mook and Lulu are our nicknames for our daughters, but they are the inspiration behind this blog and so Mook and Lulu’s was the clear winner in naming the blog.
Mook is nearly seven and Lulu is five so in recent years I have delighted in creating magical birthday parties for my girls. I have also created themed children’s events as part of my working life and I love every minute of that aspect of my work.
Designing my party styling and figuring out how to transform my ideas into reality often releases the child in me, and I find it a fabulously gratifying outlet for my creative skills. In this blog I will share my experiences, top tips and suggestions for planning children’s parties, but I will also try out new ideas (think of me as a party guinea-pig!) and I hope that it will inspire you to try something new for your children’s events.
Kids parties have come a long way from the ‘jelly-and-ice-cream’ chapter of my childhood, and parents can feel under pressure to pull out all the stops, but I believe a few simple ideas can produce enchanting results – you can have a part in making a memorable event, and you might find it quite good fun too!
