My name is Emma, mother of 3 beautiful girls, Zoe, Yasmin and Amber and a gorgeous puppy corgi named Po. Born in England, but living in Singapore for the past 20 years with my Singaporean husband, Derek.
Hopping Hares Parties, is a collection of party ideas, originally created for my 3 daughters and amassed over the past 15 years.
So named, as hares somehow remind me of these gorgeous girls of mine. They are beautiful wild creatures, tall and elegant, graceful, energetic, they exude a certain sophistication, are a little shy and reserved, but always ready to get dancing and have some fun!
As for me, I am proudly a stay-at-home mum. However, being a stay-at-home mum can offer many challenges, not least, dealing with the tedium of everyday chores. In my ‘previous life’ I was a designer and so, come party time, it is my chance to forget the dishes and the homework and get creative! Each party has been a labour of love and have involved a huge amount of my time, effort and creativity...but all have been thoroughly enjoyable to pull together! Always working with a limited budget, I find what I have lying around the house, visit the $2 store for things that can be customized and design my own printables to run out at home. One sees photos of fabulous parties online, but in the credits many have caterers, designers, cake makers, photographers etc which must add up to a huge amount of money. However, with time, patience and a bit of creativity thrown in, one can produce a spectacular party of your own for very little money.
My name is Emma. Hopefully here on Hopping Hares Parties, I can share some great ideas with you to get you started!
