Reaching the grand old age of 1 is something of a milestone. It’s your child’s very 1st birthday, the first chapter in a tradition that will, in years to come, bring with it excitement and wonder, creating special family memories you’ll cherish as your children grow older. While this celebration won’t mean much to your little one, it does hold significance for other family members – and of course Mum and Dad – so why not do something small but special to mark your baby’s first year? In years to come birthdays will be big, extravagant affairs, filled with noise, laughter and the inevitable tears, but in the early years a children’s parties can be a simple, low-key affair, with just a handful of special guests…so why not enjoy calm, stress-free parties while you can!
That said, if you love nothing more than planning an event and all that that involves – baking, making and decorating – feel free to indulge your creative side and make your gathering a little bit special. Of course, parents of young children don’t usually have lots of free time on their hands for this sort of thing, so it’s a good idea to have some short cuts up your sleeve so the planning doesn’t get in the way of enjoyment. If you’ve been looking for 1st birthday party ideas for a while and haven’t found what you’re looking for you might like to start by taking a look at our Little Owls range, created specifically with birthdays, baby showers and christenings in mind. Bright, whimsical and available in both blue and pink options, it includes all the essentials such as tableware and decorative items that provide a fuss-free way to style your gathering without the stress. Featuring a zingy colour palette and a cute owl design, the range is cute without being cutesy; retro without being old-fashioned. We love it and we think you will too!
If you’ve been limping through the winter you’ll no doubt be counting down the days until the first spring holiday of the year. With just a few weeks left until Easter, here at Neviti we can’t wait to kick back for a few days and – fingers crossed – enjoy some warm spring sunshine. This bank holiday is made for venturing outdoors, spending quality family time together and, of course, eating lots of chocolate and other delicious delights!
If you’re looking for activities to do with your little ones over the break, we have some exciting new craft products, ideal for sparking some creativity in the school holidays. Spend a morning preparing for the egg hunt with some DIY colour in egg baskets, perfect for collecting all those yummy eggs. Made from sturdy white card and illustrated with a selection of spring scenes to colour in, they’re an easy way to get creative and make something a little more unique than a shop-bought basket. The range also includes some colour-in bunting which children can add their own creative touches to. A well as colouring it in, you could customise your bunting with some extra sparkle using glitter or stick on gems…a lovely way to decorate your home this bank holiday weekend.
Looking for something a bit different for your child’s birthday celebration? Something that hints at good-natured mischief and fun? Then our new range – based on one of popular culture’s most enduringly popular duos – is just the ticket.
There are few double-acts that have captured the imagination quite like Dennis The Menace and Gnasher, the prank-loving duo who first appeared in The Beano comic way back in 1951. Their hilarious misdemeanours have spurned a popular TV show, too, bringing the pair to an even wider audience of new fans.
Now lovers of the duo’s colourful exploits can theme their special day around their heroes with our new party range, the perfect antidote to the more ubiquitous ranges on the market. It’s a bold, colourful collection, perfectly encapsulating the spirit of the comic strip with its vibrant colours, distinctive typography and iconic black and red stripes.
