HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY
Happy Australia Day for Thursday! I hope you had a fun day those of you who celebrated! We had some friends over for pizza, pool and ice cream. I really enjoyed emerging from newborn-world, and getting my craft on! I pottered about designing some printables and pulling a few props together, most of which I had on hand (which is lucky as I haven't mastered getting out by myself with two children just yet).
I know it may sound a little bit 'bogan', but I actually love the Southern Cross. I was inspired completely by this shoot I shared last year. I needed some other signage for our little get together, so there are a few more themed Australia Day freebies for you at the end of this post that work in with their invites and other printables. A little last minute addition were these fun fans for each person - it was so humid, they came in handy!
I used party dots on the ice cream cups, and buffet circles for some of the food.
And Australia Day is not complete without a dip in the pool! Fun times!
Here are the links to the free Australia Day printables for you. I know it's a little late for this year, but file them away for your next 26th January festivities!
