Chapéu de Papel, or paper hat in English, is a Portuguese company that makes party kits for all occasions.
The party they’re kindly sharing with us today celebrates not one occasion, but two! Chapéu de Papel themed the joint birthday and christening party around the colour blue and a crown, including cute paper crowns for the guests to wear…
The mini bunting is especially adorable, and the paper punched circles would make an easy DIY detail to pretty up any party.
I also love those candy, marshmallow skewer treats; they’re actually a great alternative to a party bag and way easier to arrange!

I spotted this idea on Pinterest which is from Real Dana and thought it would make a great party game! So simple and easy to set up, but the kids would love this! You could have several runs round the house, or even time how long it takes them to get through and have prizes for the quickest.
The Spiderman costume is an optional extra, obviously :)
