With Mini Mc’s first birthday coming up I’ve been on the hunt for something a bit different for the whole occasion. Lilas Party contacted me and sent a sample of their range of customised invitations, cards and party decorations.
When the parcel arrived I was immediately bowled over with the presentation box everything arrived in and when opened I was like a kid in a sweet shop going through the different samples.
There was bunting, balloons, a variety of cards as well as a beautiful piknk teddy that rattles! The teddy was from the luxury Teddykompaniet range. Mini Mc immediatley took charge of the teddy and I had to manage a picture while she was sleeping! The items were all great quality and my favourite card is the friendship bracelet which means everyone gets a little something to celebrate your little ones birthday!
I am so impressed with this range and the customer service offered. It’s also great to see such lovely items from a mumpreneur and as you know I love to support people just like me that want to start a business.
Nicola who runs Lilas Party sent me an email explaining why she started the business and I ma hoping that she doesn’t mind me sharing!
‘I am a mum of two gorgeous girls (6months & 3yrs) and recently left my previous life of being a primary school teacher behind to follow my dream (sorry always sounds corny and makes me cringe, but is true!) and set up my own business Lila’s Party. When organising my oldest daughters christening day, I found it very difficult to source pretty invitations with matching partyware for the event. I got a bit frustrated with it all and rather than just ‘make do’ and spend a fortune sourcing different bits from here and
there, hoping they would all coordinate together, I decided to take a DIY approach. I created a character for my theme and designed invitations, balloons, bunting etc to set the scene for the christening. I was rather pleased with my efforts, though later found myself in shock when two guests from the christening asked if I could recreate the theme for their little ones celebrations. Those events led to further requests and from there the seed was sown to start my business, and continue along this unexpected path that I was so greatly enjoying!’
