World Cup

Engerland, Engerland, Engerlannnnnnnd!

The World Cup is finally here!

Are you excited? We certainly are!

Not only do you get to watch the world’s best footballers doing what they do best, there’s also a chance to try out the very best in football fancy dress! That’s two of our favourite things, right there.

We’re happy to take this opportunity to have a World Cup party for the opening ceremony, and thought we’d share some ideas with you.

world cup cakes

Take a look at these fabulous World Cup cup cakes! Don’t they look fabulous? If you don’t have the patience to sit and create all of the individual team shirts yourself, we’re sure nobody would mind if you just made a full set of England ones!

World Cup hot dogsIf you’re more into the simple things in life, make some good old fashioned hot dogs, and stick some World Cup flags in them.

We love this video for face painting ideas. Why not have each person come to your party as a different country?

World Cup bunting


We love this World Cup printable bunting; why not decorate your living room with it for the duration of the competition?

World Cup Cake

Of course, it’s not a party without a cake! Do you think you could make this one?

Or, since the World Cup is in Brazil this year, perhaps you could try your hand at this one:

Whoever wins (though obviously it will be England this time), the World Cup is a fantastic competition; like the Olympics, it allows us all to see some of the finest athletes in the world, at the pinnacle of their ability. Whichever team you support, all of these men are incredible sportsmen and that’s something to be admired!

Now, on with the celebrations!


Themed Parties: The 1960s Comments Off on Themed Parties: The 1960s

Posted on September 24, 2012 by admin

Everybody loves a good old fashioned themed fancy dress party. Over the years, we have seen some truly great costumes come from the entertainment industry, but there is one decade that always stands out as a favourite amongst many – the 1960s.

It’s the chosen theme for many a fancy dress party and there’s plenty of inspiration for costumes. We take a look at some of the outfits that made the 1960s so memorable to give you some ideas for your own party.

The Beatles

Undoubtedly one of the greatest and most influential bands of all time, The Beatles are always on the horizon when it comes to 1960s fancy dress. Of all the Beatles costumes, Sergeant Pepper has to pip it at the post – the instantly recognisable costume is still a strong favourite today!

1966 Soccer Hero

The 60s was, indeed, the decade in which England won the World Cup (in case you had forgotten after all these years of hurt). Bobby Moore was an absolutely stalwart part of that defence and he has been immortalised in this soccer hero fancy dress costume to recognise his achievements.

Marilyn Monroe

We recently saw the 50th anniversary of the death of the Blonde Bombshell and it is only fitting that her distinctive look is still a fancy dress favourite in the 21st century. She was sultry, sexy and altogether loveable, so what better way is there to stand out at a themed fancy dress party today?
