The party was in the morning- from 10 a.m. to noon so I served breakfast-type food. Plus, all the kids at the party were toddlers so I wanted the menu to be kid friendly yet adult-ish. I ended up serving breakfast croissants, cream cheese bagels, and star (jam filled) sandwiches. I also had a huge fruit platter, chocolate and vanilla cupcakes and a sailboat shaped doughnut cake from Allie's Doughnuts- a local donut store in North Kingstown.
For the decorations... a welcome sign greeted guests at the front door, I made a happy birthday banner, buffet cards (food labels), pinwheel wands, etc. One of the accent colors of the party printable is orange so I had a vase of orange tulips on the table. I also put the party favors- bubbles and chocolate covered pretzel rods with personalized labels- on the table because they added to the decoration. Also, on the table were a couple copies of the birthday invite. All printables are available from APartyStudio on Etsy. www.apartystudio.etsy.com
Since the children were so young, we didn't do any party games. I had a jar full of origami stars and let the adults guess how many were in there and I had a prize for the winner. The stars were from TrinketsByDana on Etsy.
