We threw a "Neverland" themed party for our daughter's third birthday. Four separate play areas were created in the backyard: Hangman's Hideout (tree house where the Lost Boys live), Pirate Cove, Indian Camp and Pixie Hollow. All the kids were given dress up clothes that also served as party favors. The costumes were a big hit - even some of the grown-ups wore them! The birthday girl dressed as Wendy and our dog was part of the festivities as well. He was Nana, the Darling children's nanny.
Ainsley's friend Amos came as Peter Pan - he stole the show!
"Fairy Berry Birthday Cake," petit fours, "Pirate Ship Brownies," handmade marshmallows and loads of candy.
Activities / Games
There's a tree house in the backyard complete with a zip line so the kids could "fly." We also had dress up clothes so the kids could choose to be Lost Boys, Pirates, Pixies or Indians.
Too many to pick just one, but the kid's reactions to the costumes were fantastic. They really loved them!
What People Ate
All the food had Peter Pan-inspired names, so we served "Mr. Smee's Sammiches," "Tick-Tock Spinach Salad," "Tiger Lily's Yummy Hummus," "Pixie Wing Pasta Salad" (made with bow tie pasta), "Nana's Good Dog Roll-overs" (tortilla roll-ups), "The Lost Boy's Favorite Fruits," "Fairy Berry Birthday Cake," "Pirate Ship Brownies," and "Wendy Darling's Light-as-Air Petit Fours."
What People Drank
For the kiddos - Grape and apple juice boxes, lemonade, and custom water bottles with "Refreshing water from Mermaid Lagoon." For the grown-ups in Never Land: Abita Beer and White Wine Sangria
Most Touching Moment
"Flying" my little Wendy around. She really had such a good time.
