I’m so excited to launch the Spa of Our Own craft party. This party option is available to all age groups and includes the following activities –
Bath Bomb making
Lip gloss making
Make-up bag decorating
Flip Flop decorating (older teens and adults only)
The child or teen party is an hour and a half and for the adult option, I allow 2 hours so you can spend a bit longer making and perfecting your creations.
You’ll make 2 bath bomb muffins, in your chosen colour and scent, adding some beautiful dried flowers on the top. You’ll also package them up beautifully and add a tag so you can gift them if you’d like to.
Next up, you’ll learn to make your own lip gloss in a colour of your choice and then put it into gemstone pots which you’ll decorate and embellish.
All materials are thoroughly tested for fun factor and quality by my team of keen crafters (ie my children and their friends).
We take party testing very seriously here at MBM HQ
Don’t just take my word for it, here’s what one of the mums said after her daughter’s Spa Craft Party
“Thank you so much, Lexy for a fabulous party! Hope and her friends had a great time and they all went home with beautiful flip-flops and lip gloss. Love how organised you are and all the tiny creative details. Looking forward to having one of your lovely parties again in the future.”
All set up for eager 8-year-olds to make lip gloss
So, you’ve got a special party to plan. Perhaps a birthday, hen party or wedding? Wouldn’t it be nice to support small businesses and buy unique, beautiful or handmade party supplies?
I’ve scoured the internet to bring you five of my favourite party supply businesses suitable for adults and children alike, I hope you’re going to love them too!
First up … badges and hats …
If it’s a special birthday, Ellie’s Beautiful Mess hand makes fabric hats and number badges that will make you squeal! The sparkly, glittery, squishy numbers will have everyone singing “happy birthday to you” all day long!

Let’s talk about party decor
Hello Party sell the most fabulous balloon garlands kits that really stand out from the crowd (I really want to cover my whole house with these). I also think a tassel garland brings a bit of sparkle to any party, plus you can keep it up long after the party is over!

You’ve decorated your venue and you’ve nailed the badge or hat to wear. Surely every party needs a pinata? Kate from Pinyatay hand makes every pinata to order and they’re absolutely BEAUTIFUL. Possibly too lovely to smash up, so you could just use them as a centrepiece if you can’t bear to destroy them or you could purchase one of the pull string options.
If you’re organising a hen party you might just want to check out one of the listings at the bottom of the page (I won’t say anymore, chuckle, chuckle!)

DIY Photo Booth
Foil letter balloons are bang on trend at the moment and Best Day Ever supply some excellent choices which are perfect for photobooth backdrops. Add in some tissue paper pom poms or honeycomb balls and a tinsel curtain and you’re good to go!
