My best friend's brilliant birthday party idea

Because we had a family party on Sunday we missed one of the boy's special friend's 5th birthday party. Our best friends held what sounded like a fab party in the local village hall (my favourite kind of party) and I asked if I could share my friend's amazing idea!

Forget your everyday party bags, they had a balloon tree!

Take a helium balloon and place a plastic weight on the end. Place it in a party cup and pour your party bag fillers and sweets over the top. Arrange the cups on a cake stand and ta daa! A stunning and simple idea that is a show stopper!

ps I'm going to join forces with my best pal and post our top tips for a village hall party so watch out for it!
