STYLING A KIDS SUMMER PARTY

It's about that time that the schools are about to kick out all of the kids for summer here in the UK. Ice lollies, water fights and trips to the park (or perhaps soup, umbrellas and indoor play if this summer has been anything to go by!)

It's not fair that people renting can't decorate. Why should you have to fork over your hard earned cash so that landlords can 'fix the wall' after you hang pictures?
