A gnome dilemma
We were delighted to be asked to create a batch of gnome-themed gift bags as prizes for a customer who was running a gnome treasure hunt as part as a family reunion. With eight children to cater for - boys and girls aged from one to 13 - our customer needed several different bags to keep everyone happy!
All of the children received decorate-your-own gnome kits (with mini paint pots in six bright colours and brushes), hand-finished toadstool chocolate lollipops and bug scratch-art. The girls also received "boho chic" flower hair garlands and the boys' bags included creature peepers and mini pet (plastic!) bugs. We even managed to find an adorable cuddly gnome for the baby of the bunch. The contents were presented on "green grass" tissue paper and wrapped in cellophane with personalised gift tags. Gnome-tastic!
"The last time I saw a party bag it was a cheap plastic bag filled with a load of rubbish. How far away from that were yours! They were all age appropriate and filled with wonderful gnome-related gifts. Absolutely gorgeous. The only problem was that the adults were a bit miffed that they weren't going to get one too!!!"

At Beanstalk Bags HQ we have been diehard Bugsy Malone fans since we were kids, so we were thrilled to be asked to put these bags together for a next-generation-Bugsy-fan's 8th birthday party. The bags formed the basis of the party, with lots of activities to keep the kids busy and lots of gorgeous gangster and doll delights to take home too. Each bag contained:
- a can of non-toxic Bugsy SPLURGE spray with a plastic plate "applicator";
- a Blousey Brown felt hat;
- a Dandy Dan moustache;
- a "My Name is Tallulah" flapper headdress kit;
- a (Mr) Big Quiz;
- a long string of pearls;
- a "special on the rocks" retro cocktail glass with light-up plastic ice cubes; and
- a chocolate lollipop, decorated with glitzy gold and silver hundreds and thousands.
"The bags were an absolute triumph. Moustaches worn, hats worn (all weekend), splurge fight - epic, flashing ice cubes - genius, quizzes completed, headbands decorated and chocolate lollipops eaten. Thank you, thank you, lovely Beanstalk girls!"
- Liz, London
Sometimes our customers surprise us with truly unique themes, and this was one of those times! We thoroughly enjoyed re-living our festival-going days when devising the contents of these groovy bags. They contained:
- a rock star bandana headband in three funky colours;
- an inflatable guitar;
- funky star-shaped glasses;
- a ceramic wellington boot pencil pot with paints and a brush to decorate it with (wellies - a festival 'must have'!);
- a milk chocolate lollipop decorated with rainbow sprinkles and the child's age;
- a plush smiley face keyring (reminiscent of the old acid house days!); and
- funny face scratch art and glow sticks.
We designed these luxurious bags for a very special birthday girl who was turning 13 and wanted to hand out a nail-themed gift to her party guests. These bags included a nail care set in a pretty zip-up case (including nail clippers, nail scissors, a stainless steel nail file, a cuticle tool and tweasers), floral matchbook nail files, a pot of nail varnish, hand cream, a pot of clear top and base coat, nail stickers, toe dividers and a colourful flower-themed chocolate lollipop. These items were arranged around a set of three cute, floral storage boxes in various sizes for nail polishes, equipment and accessories.
"My daughter and I love the bags, and it is obvious they have been prepared with lots of care. Thank you so much. I'll spread the word about the wonderful Beanstalk Bags!"

Potty for Harry Potter!
We had a "riddikulusly" good time creating these Harry Potter-themed bags for some recent birthday parties.
Each bag contains everything the lucky recipient needs to make delicious Harry Potter-themed cookies (with the addition of some basic store cupboard ingredients), a Quidditch broomstick pencil, a Deathy Hallows keyring, a pair of Harry Potter glasses and a bag of "Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans" (with only the nice flavours included!).
"Thank you so much! These arrived today and are fantastic and really high quality. I will order from you again and will recommend you to my friends."

We were delighted to be asked to supply London-themed bags for a first birthday party, with a request for particular emphasis on red buses and soldiers! Most of the guests were friends of the birthday boy's three-year-old brother, so we created separate baby and toddler versions to keep everyone happy. The "baby bag" included a baby-safe wooden red bus, a chunky plastic soldier (with moveable, clicking limbs and head!) and a bus-themed milk and white chocolate bar made exclusively for this party. The "toddler bag" included a ceramic red bus grass-growing kit, a London-themed metal keyring (telephone boxes, post boxes, Big Ben, etc), shimmery London-themed stickers and the same bus-themed chocolate bar. These gorgeous items were wrapped in cellophane with red, white and blue tissue paper, and were tied with a bus-themed bow.
"I can only describe the customer service as excellent and the party bags themselves are brilliant! The attention to detail is really superb - Hannah and Jill even made co-ordinating baby and toddler bags so that all the guests could have something age approproate. I can't wait for our guests to receive them and I would recommend you to everyone. Thank you so much."

This bespoke challenge - to create bags to fit with the film "Trolls" - required an investigative trip to the cinema with the kids! We loved the wall-to-wall rainbows and sparkles, and had to reflect them in this bag, which contains:
- a troll-shaped milk chocolate lollipop;
- a rainbow mosaic kit;
- a flashing "Hug Time" ring (for girls) or LED finger torch (for boys);
- an official "Trolls" multi-colour pen;
- an official "Trolls" rubber; and
- a retro long-haired troll keyring.
In the words of Princess Poppy: "Happiness isn’t something you put inside - it’s already there. Sometimes you just need someone to help you find it". We hope that these bags helped the birthday girl and her friends to find the happiness inside!
"The party bags are amazing, thank you. The drawings are superb and the chocolate, I just want to eat now!!! You have put a lot of thought and care into them, thank you. The ribbons are pretty and bright too, just all very lovely."

Alice in Wonderland
"But I don't want to go among mad people", Alice remarked. "Oh, you can't help that", said the cat. "We're all mad here...".
We had great fun tailoring our popular cookie kits to fit a lucky birthday girl's "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland" party theme.
We were inspired by a gorgeous vintage postcard featuring Alice and the inimitable Cheshire Cat, so we included one in each bag as a keepsake, along with a kit to make gorgeous Cheshire Cat-themed cookies. We also included another famous character - the White Rabbit - in chocolate lollipop form.
We have no doubt that everyone left the party smiling like the Cheshire Cat!
"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the party bags - we love them. I know Lily will love them when we show her on Saturday."
- Mel, Kent
These bespoke "Ice Palace" bags were packed full of sparkling goodies, including a make-your-own ice wand kit, a snowflake self-inking stamper, an Ice Queen keyring, a snow globe and a gorgeous white chocolate snowflake lollipop.
Once each little guest had received a bag, there was no chance of them agreeing to "let it go"!
"Thank you so much. The bags are absolutely gorgeous!"
- Gemma, Hertfordshire
We created these bags for four lovely birthday girls who wanted each party guest to take away their own creamic fairy statuette and fairy dust. We tracked these items down and combined them with the contents of our standard fairy bags (see our range) to create something truly unique. We even made a gnome version of the bag for a younger brother who wasn't too keen on fairies!
"A huge thank you to Jill and Hannah for yet again exceeding expectations with absolutely superb party bags for the girls' fairy party. Everyone left looking very happy with their party bags (and Ben went straight to the messy room to start painting his gnome!). Thanks ladies."
- Nicola, Harpenden
A "princessely" spread
Tasked with creating something crafty and unusual on a princess theme, we came up with this variation on our popular cookie kits. This cellophane bag, tied with grosgrain ribbon depicting princess castles and carriages, contains a recipe for princess crown cookies, a quality crown cookie cutter with gold icing, a pink chocolate princess carriage lollipop and a frilly polkadot apron with pocket details. With the addition of some simple storecupboard ingredients, the party-goers had everything they needed to make a sweet feast fit for any princess!
"Ladies, THANK YOU. The party bags went down a storm. Brilliantly creative and beautifully packaged as always."
