Did you all have a good weekend? What did you get up to? I stuck to my plans and yesterday took myself to the Angove Street Festival in North Perth…

Mum and lil’ sis, Skye came along and it was straight to the food stalls. Skye is pictured here with some very yummy thin potato chips sprinkled with pepper and salt and doused in sour cream.

I couldn’t go past the beautiful big pans of paella sizzling away…

It was hard to resist all the other delicious food stalls selling churros, cupcakes, macarons, wood-fired pizza and tagines. But it wasn’t all about the food. As with most festivals, there were some very cute ideas for the kids, which could easily be replicated at home. Pillars painted in white offered a canvas for some exquisite colouring in. The woman supervising was very strict on her instructions though: “no name writing because all the other kids will do it and it will look like the back of a toilet door.” Well, if you put it that way…

A great idea to keep the kids entertained when you’re entertaining - if you have the flexibility to paint a part of your exterior wall white then go for it! If not, big sheets of butchers paper and handfuls of coloured textas will do the trick. Or you could create your own game of "Gone fishing"

Hula hoops are always great fun…

I loved the notes pegged to branches and pom poms dangling from trees…

And who needs chairs when you have hay bales to sit on while listening to the beautiful Jessica Morhall in the laneway…

There was live street art…

Me eating in front of live street art…

Even spiders came out for the day…

And then, so did the rain…

But a little rain wasn’t going to stop anybody…

So, did anyone else head along to Angove Street yesterday? Or, maybe you’ve got some fond memories and entertaining ideas from other festivals?
