    We are having one!



    I ordered the jars the other day and they have arrived, really good prices and well packaged -

    I will be decorating the table with pink/green bunting and the sweets will match our colour scheme.

    I'm doing one as well, got jars from IKEA, little silver scoops from Confetti and I have at least 500 more white & yellow stripy paper bags than I need, so if anyone would like these, give me a shout!

    As for the sweeties, I'm going for a jar of fizzy, a jar of lollies, a jar of jellies, etc. Planning on ordering from the online-sweets. Depending how the budget goes, this might have to double up as favours.
