About Me


Hi I’m Ellie Kelly (that truly is my name) I married an Irishman.


Ellie Kelly 2015

I live on the Surrey & Hampshire border in the UK with my lovely husband our baby girl Neive who is 2 years old and Milo our Border Terrier.

I run Buttons Children’s Parties, a party and event company for little people. I started Buttons in 2011 and love having a job that is all about having fun and being creative.

And then in October 2017 I started Wonderwood Explorers, A Forest School and Wild Adventure company that is all about getting kids outside, a bit muddy, exploring, learning about nature and having tons of fun.

I originally created this blog to document all the fun I have with work and it has grown over the years to what is now a blog all about fun in every aspect of my life. I love to share the parties we create at Buttons in the hope it will help others create fab parties for their little ones. I am also documenting the outdoor activites we do with Wonderwood, the fun i have with Neive at home and out on walks as well as my family life.

I have also just added a business section to the blog that is going to share what i have learnt in my 7 years as a business owner and now starting a new venture with a young family.
