Poppy Troll, Queen of the Celebration


Introduction

Poppy Troll is the namesake of our blog post, and for good reason… she’s the star of the show! Poppy Troll is fun-loving, kind and generous. There’s a party in her heart 24/7, and she loves to share it with everyone around her. She’s also incredibly talented: she can sing, dance, make crafts and play music on just about any instrument. Plus she decorates like nobody’s business. And did I mention that her hair is bright pink? All that being said, we still think you should get to know Poppy a little better. Here are just a few reasons why we adore this amazing troll:

Poppy Troll is the unofficial, official Queen of the Celebration.

Poppy Troll is the unofficial, official Queen of the Celebration. She loves to throw parties and make sure everyone has a good time especially birthday parties! You’ll often find her wearing a crown of holly or ivy or sitting on her throne decorated with rainbows and balloons.

She likes to decorate everything with rainbows, balloons, and glittery streamers. She loves all kinds of music but especially singing songs with friends while they dance around together. Her favorite thing to do is encourage everyone around her to join in the fun!

Poppy loves every occasion because it’s an opportunity to celebrate, and that means having a party. Especially Birthday Parties!

Poppy Troll is a party planner extraordinaire, and she loves every occasion because it’s an opportunity to celebrate. Each celebration is different and has its own special twist, which makes it all the more exciting!

This week, Poppy is celebrating her birthday with a party in the village center. You can help her arrange the table and decorate it with your favorite party favors, or even make some games out of balloons or streamers for everyone to play!  You can help celebrate Poppy’s birthday (and yours) by wearing this adorable troll’s 2nd birthday outfit to the party.

She likes to decorate everything with rainbows, balloons and glittery streamers.

Poppy Troll, queen of the celebration, likes to decorate everything with rainbows, balloons, and glittery streamers. Rainbows are a good choice because they are a symbol of happiness. Balloons are fun and playful so it’s a good idea to use them for celebrations that involve children or young people. Glittery streamers add sparkle to any occasion so they’re perfect for parties where guests expect things to be as bright and shiny as possible!

Poppy Troll loves to make all kinds of music, and she encourages everyone around her to join in.

Poppy Troll loves to make all kinds of music, and she encourages everyone around her to join in. Poppy plays the guitar for the trolls, for the villagers, and for her friends at school. She also plays it at home with her family. And she’ll even play it just for you!

Poppy Troll is a great friend to everyone in the village, even Branch who doesn’t like celebrations.

Poppy Troll is a great friend to everyone in the village, even Branch who doesn’t like celebrations. She’s always making sure everyone is having fun and she has a special way of bringing out their inner troll! Poppy lives in a purple castle with her friends Poopy and Brancusi (who are also trolls). They are all great friends to each other and love spending time together.

Branch is serious and practical and doesn’t always agree with Poppy’s love of fun and parties.

Poppy Troll, Queen of the Celebration is a character in the Poppy Troll series. She is generally depicted as a very cheerful and optimistic troll who loves to celebrate with parties, singing and dancing. Branch Troll, her brother, on the other hand, is not so much into celebrations or parties; he doesn’t like being silly or playful at all. He prefers to be serious and practical—and very focused on his work as a scientist (he has invented many things including an invisible light bulb).

Branches’s friends often tease him because they think he should loosen up more and enjoy life more like his sister Poppy does!

The other trolls think Branch might have a crush on Poppy troll, but he isn’t admitting it yet.

The other trolls think Branch might have a crush on Poppy troll, but he isn’t admitting it yet.

He might be afraid of heights, or maybe he thinks celebrations are silly and unnecessary. Or maybe he doesn’t want to show his feelings in front of the other troll boys because they’re very competitive and would make fun of him if they knew how he felt about her.

But you know what?  Everyone needs a little silliness in their life once in a while, even Branch!

You might think: “What’s wrong with Branch? Why doesn’t he want to participate in the festivities?” Well, I can tell you that there are a few reasons why Branch isn’t big on parties.

Branch is a serious person. He likes things organized and running smoothly. It makes him uncomfortable to be around lots of people who are busy having fun—and maybe even getting hurt! Plus, he knows that Poppy Troll loves throwing parties, which means she will spend most of her time organizing them instead of focusing on what needs to be done for her kingdom’s celebrations. And that really bothers Branch because it means she won’t have time for important things like ruling her kingdom well or keeping herself safe from danger.

But here’s something else about Poppy Troll that you might not know: She loves Branch! They have been friends since they were kids growing up together under their mothers’ tutelage (Poppy Troll’s mother was an expert party thrower). When they were young adults and had first met each other at one of their respective parties (Branch had been invited by someone else; Poppy Troll had been asked by several people), each felt an immediate connection with the other person’s personality type; they became fast friends due to their similar interests in organized activities versus more free-form fun times spent celebrating life events like birthdays or holidays together

Parties are for everyone!

Parties are for everyone. Everyone is welcome to come, and everyone is welcome to celebrate!

Parties are fun. They’re full of music, laughter, and good times.

Parties are for celebrating. We celebrate the season’s arrival with a party and we celebrate birthdays with parties too!

We also want you to make new friends at our parties! And if you don’t know anyone yet in this big wide world, then take it from me: You can meet people just by saying “Hi!” or “Hello!” Or just be yourself—everyone loves being themselves! And don’t worry if people don’t respond when you say hello because sometimes they might not hear what you said because there’s so much noise around them but that’s OKAY because it’s a party where no one minds about what happens or does not happen as long as everyone has fun!

Conclusion

As you can see, there are many reasons why people love Poppy troll. She is the life of the party and always has a smile on her face. Her positive attitude is infectious and she makes everyone around her feel good about themselves too. It is this quality that makes her so special to Branch; he knows she will always be there for him no matter what happens in their lives together… And we think that’s pretty cool!

Unicorn Birthday

Introduction

This past weekend we celebrated my daughter’s 1st birthday! We love unicorns, and so we decided to do a unicorn themed party.

Unicorn Birthday Tutu Outfit

 

This is a tutu made of tulle, which is a multi-layered skirt with elastic at the waist. Some people may like to do this as a DIY project and while it is possible to make the ribbon trim tutu with the right materials in order to make the embroidered top you will need to have an embroidery machine, if that is not the case you can purchased this gorgeous little unicorn 1st birthday outfit at Little Keiki Bou-Tiki

If you want to make this tutu, you’ll need:

  • 6 rolls of 12 inch tulle (you might be able to find these in your local craft store)
  • Ribbon satin in pastel rainbow colors because unicorns are colorful about 40 to 50 yards
  • Scissors or an old pair of sharp kitchen scissors
  • waistband elastic
  • youtube video on making a ribbon trim tutu

Unicorns are Real!

You may be thinking to yourself, “I don’t care about narwhals.” But if you’ve ever seen a picture of one, you know that they look exactly like unicorns. Narwhals are actually a type of whale that lives in the Arctic and has a horn growing out of its head. They’re endangered because people have been hunting them for their horns, which are sold on eBay for $10 million each!

This might seem like bad news for the narwhal population, but we think it’s good news overall because now we can all feel like unicorns when we see pictures of real live narwhals!

Unicorn Birthday Cakes

Unicorn birthday cakes are delicious, beautiful, fun and loved by kids and adults.

They’re magical too! A unicorn cake is the perfect way to celebrate a birthday with your whole family. You can even make these magical treats at home for an unforgettable party or celebration.

Throw a unicorn birthday party for the best birthday ever!

There are so many ways you can make your child’s unicorn birthday party as magical and whimsical as a real unicorn party. Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Invitations. If you want to go all out with your invitations, then look no further than Etsy! You’ll find lots of cute paper choices in different styles that are perfect for unicorn parties. Be sure to use the right fonts so that they match the theme perfectly!
  • Decorations. You will want to decorate your entire house with decorations related to unicorns and rainbows. Colorful streamers and balloons hanging from the ceiling will create an atmosphere of joy and excitement as soon as guests walk in the door!
  • Party favors/activities/games/cake/food/drinks: What better way is there than receiving party favors from a magical creature like a unicorn? They can be anything from stickers, pencils or even sunglasses made out of plastic material that has been colored using bright colors such as pink or purple (if possible). Also consider giving each child their own customized cookie cutter made specifically for this special occasion since it is such an important part of having fun at home when making treats during parties!

Purchasing a Custom Personalized 1st Birthday Outfit

How to Purchase a Personalized 1st Birthday Outfit on line

Blog Article

The first birthday is a very important time in the life of your baby. Both for them and for you. That special birthday outfit needs to be perfect, so how does someone find this perfect outfit? First you need to realize that there are alternatives to purchasing a pre-made personalized 1st birthday outfit from the big box store. The following article will tell you where to look to find the best personalized 1st birthday outfit for your child.
The first birthday is a very special time for a family. It is a momentous occasion that only happens once in a child’s life. It is a day to be remembered as being very important and special. Photos from this special day will be cherished forever, and taken out, again and again, to show family and friends what your baby was wearing on such a significant day.
It’s just as important that the birthday boy or girl be dressed in a special 1st birthday outfit that will show the world that this is their very special day. A boy will typically wear a tuxedo, with a bow tie and cummerbund and for a little girl it may be a white cotton dress with pink lace edging. If you are planning a simple family celebration then you probably don’t have to go any further than a 1st birthday outfit that can be bought at Target or Wal-Mart, but if you want your child to look like they stepped out of their own special photo shoot then you might want to get some help from a custom design shop. These special shops offer outfits that range from the simple to the sublime with price tags that match. The average cost of a good quality custom-made birthday outfit will run between $69.95 and $159.95. A lot depends on exactly what you want to order. Just the outfit (top and bottom or dress) $69.95-79.95 but if you want to add diaper cover/ bloomers, hair bows or headbands, ruffled sock, party hats, neckties and things like that the price can move upward quite quickly. Look for sets and package deals at that point to keep the cost down.
Finding the best shop to make your baby’s 1st birthday outfit can take some work. You will need to go beyond the first few pages on Google search to find the little custom shops because the big retailers command the first pages due simply to their size. You will not find a personalized 1st birthday outfit custom made on Target or Walmart websites. So look further down past all those and even past Etsy. While Etsy has some good shops that offer custom handmade items in the last few years there have been many shops that are offering inferior mass produced items. Try to find a quality shop you can work with.
So whether you are looking for the perfect gift for your little one, or want to start a tradition of special outfits, shopping for a custom made 1st birthday outfit will reward you and your family with comfort, style and memories.

Choosing the Best Birthday Outfit

Thanks to BakingSmarter.com for the great 1st Birthday cake ideas. It is amazing what you can accomplish with some fondant and a few cookie cutters. Please give some of these cake ideas a try and let us know how they turned out.

The Birthday Cake like the Birthday Outfit is an integral part of the birthday celebration. Planning for the big day starts for many parents on the day their precious baby arrives, for others not until later but you should start gathering the ideas and components at least 6 months before the big day. Doing it this way will avoid that rushed feeling and the shipping terrors associated with deliveries that are date sensitive.

You want to make sure you research all the different things that make up a 1st birthday celebration . If you are making the cake yourself, you will want to test out the recipes and the decorating techniques to make sure of the outcome. Likewise other foods that you may be planning to serve, if they are not family favorites, test them out. Make sure they are easy enough to prepare and that they taste good. Birthday Day is not a time for culinary surprises.

The decoration, there are many sources of decorations but I have found that the cutest decorations and the most affordable ones are imported, and imported means a longer shipping time, so plan ahead. Always give about 30-45 days for the shipping. You will be glad you did. I offer party decorations and ideas for the 1st Birthday Party on my website littlekeikiboutiki.com but there are a number of other good sources for party decor, just remember- no matter where you order from giving plenty of time for shipping is important.

Select the venue and determine the booking policies of your chosen venue. Make sure you understand their cancellation policies, just in case. If you run into an issue and need to change the date you want to know ahead of time what the policies are for your venue.

Now for the big one. The birthday outfit. What are you going to choose for your baby to wear as his/her 1st birthday outfit? How do you select the best birthday outfit? You could go to your local department store and choose from the selection they offer but this option will get you a generic outfit that could be worn for any occasion. Stepping up to the world of custom-made birthday outfits. It can be a bit intimidating to navigate the wide range of 1st birthday outfits that are available. The themes are almost endless and the prices range from cheap to the upper end. Outfits in the $20s to outfits in the $100s. Where to begin and how to make sure you don’t end up getting burned!

Take your time and investigate! Reach out and speak to the seller. Ask questions, and make sure you understand what you are purchasing. There are any number of sham sites out there and you want to make sure you don’t fall victim to them. How? Well start with the HTTP: vs the HTTPS: If the site you are shopping on doesn’t have the HTTPS: and the little padlock in the address bar at the top of your screen, STOP run the other way. You never want to give your money to a site without the https: designation, it is not safe. Next look for their reviews and reputation, yes there are fake reviews and things are often not what they seem. But check them out. Next look at what they are offering, have you seen the same outfit offered elsewhere at a higher price maybe? What looks like a bargain can end up being a big costly mistake. Do the photos of the outfits look uniform and are any watermarks the marks of that company or are they watermarks for different companies? This is a dead giveaway that the outfit pictured has been stolen from another website. If you buy from these sites you will either lose your money or receive a much inferior product. Don’t be afraid to contact sites and ask questions. If you see an outfit that is beyond gorgeous and it is priced at $40.00 it is a scam. The old adage “you get what you pay for” is very true. Be careful and do your research. Make sure you are dealing with a reputable company. Make sure they accept credit cards and not just PayPal or they ask you to wire the money direct. Those are all red flags.

Some of the cutest 1st birthday outfits are available from littlekeikiboutiki.com, I have been in business for over 8 years. I offer everything from a Minnie Mouse outfit for 1st birthday to a Construction theme 1st birthday outfit for your baby boy. I can make an outfit to match any of the cakes in the last post or any of the themes in this blog. Winnie the Pooh 1st Birthday Outfit, Frozen Birthday Outfit. Princess Birthday Outfit, Mickey Mouse 1st Birthday Outfit, or something completely different. You can feel confident that your little one’s 1st birthday outfit will be made with care using the best materials available. Contact me at info@littlekeikiboutiki.com I will be happy to discuss your plans for your little one’s upcoming birthday.

Crazy World

This is a crazy world we live in and it just seems to get crazier every day! I have tried to keep a solid perspective and not let the outside world overwhelm me with the foolishness that is so pervasive these days. I am trying to stay focused on family and my little business. Family is doing fine, healthy and mostly happy we are doing our best to avoid covid-19. My little business has been a struggle but I am working on it. trying very hard to get things back to what they once were.

Building an ecommerce business is much more than I thought. I left Etsy because of Covid-19 and now trying to go it alone as a stand alone website is much work. I never realized the amount of work involved. I having been learning as I go and have been very fortunate to have found help in so many outstanding places. Google Merchants Services, a great place to learn how to promote my products on Google (it works for other places too!) Once I opened my Google Merchants Account, the support team was very easy to contact and helped me understand what I needed to do to get my products to show on Google Search. BigCommerce these guys are super supportive and between the Knowledge Base and the phone support team they have managed to take me from not knowing anything to a fairly confident webmaster. No matter how bad I mess up they are there 24/7 to bail me out. Ubersuggest what can I say/ Neil Patel knows more about SEO than anyone I know about and he doesn’t hesitate to share his knowledge with anyone who is interested. From YouTube videos to one on one consultation calls Neil Patel is there to answer my questions. I have learned so much from him but still have much to learn. Take backlinks for instance, I started this journey not knowing anything about how or why to link to other websites and having them link back to mine. Neil has got this down to a science and with the help of Linkorado a fantastic link exchange service that makes finding compatable and appropriate sites to exchange links with easy. again there is so much to learn but with help like this I feel I can succeed. I am here for the long haul and hope my past customers will continue their support in both returning to shop and to refer their friends and family. I also want to attract new customers so hopefully Google will continue to show my products and Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest will offer my products for others to view. Stop by to see me at littlekeikiboutiki.com we have a large selection of birthday outfits and baby items. See you soon.

How to Grow Gladiolus Flowers

Gladiolus are known by a number of other names, including: Gladiola, “Glads”, and even “Sword Lilly”. Why Sword Lily, you might ask? It’s because of their long, sword-like leaves. But, Glads are not members of the lily family. Whatever you like to call them, their showy spikes make them one of the more popular flowers grown in the home flower garden.

Gladiolus are native to the mountains of South America. They are widely grown in the U.S. and Europe. Growing Gladiolus is easy. They make for a beautiful flower in the garden and in floral arrangements, hence their popularity.

With just a little attention, your glads will burst into a bloom of tall spikes in July or August. Blossoms come in a wide range of colors and bicolors, including blue. The blossoms will open from the bottom first. Harvest spikes of Gladiolus just before the top blossoms open. The top blossoms will open indoors.

Did you know? You might think that Gladiolus grow from bulbs….wrong! They actually grow from a closely related cousin, the “corm”. See more on Bulbs, Corms and Rhizomes.


How to Grow Gladiolus Bulbs :

Plant Gladiolus in the spring. They can be grown in rows, or bunches. They will tolerate a little crowding, but will grow bigger if spaced out. Gladiolus plants prefer a rich, soft soil, and plenty of water.

pH range: 6.0 – 7.0

While they prefer full sun, Gladiolus will still grow well in partial shade. My glads receive full morning sun before being shaded by the house in the afternoon. A little fertilizer helps to stimulate growth, especially if the soil is poor.

Once planted, your gladiolus should grow well with little attention. Add mulch to help retain water, and to keep the weeds down.

Gladiolus will grow three to four feet tall, but are not a sturdy plant. The heavily flowered spikes, are susceptible to bending and breaking. Provide protection from the wind, if possible. Tie the spikes to plant stakes, to avoid wind damage.


Plant Propagation:

You’re probably well familiar with bulbs, which reproduce baby bulbs below the mother bulb. Corms, on the other hand, produce new corms on the top of the mother corm. In the fall, dig up gladiolus corms. Separate the corms. Wash and dry them. Then, put them in a cool, dry and dark place until planting time arrives next spring.

Tip: If you are planning a color-coordinated design for your flower garden, sort corms by color, before putting them away. https://littlekeikibouti

Farm 1st Birthday Party Details:

“We own a farm and Maximo loves his horses and cows, so that was the inspiration for his first birthday party! A farm theme was the perfect way to celebrate what he loves the most.

We brought the animals to our house and made everything look like a farm. I put a lot of care into the details, from the centerpieces and table set up to the favor boxes. Everything was made by me.

The kids table was very adorable and the sweet table was the best! My husband made the backdrop and the wind mill and it came out just perfect. It was the center of everything! 

I ordered the cake and the cookies from a bakery in New York City. This meant I had to drive 3 hours back and forth to get them, but it was worth it! 

We really enjoyed this event, and most importantly, Maximo loved his birthday party!” – Bia | Throw a Party
