I do parties and events for a living, but when it comes to my daughters party, its about working with her on it and trying to give her what is in her head.
She always told me that she wanted a
'proper' picnic. We have had picnic's, but I think she wanted what she saw on tv, you know the red and white gingham and the picnic baskets etc.. So for this years party, that is exactly what she got.
Mini picnic baskets with gingham ribbon and surprises inside.
Activities / Games
Egg and spoon race, potato sack races, roll the pumpkin, face painter and a playground that features a pirate ship.
Seeing everyones faces when they arrived and saw the set up! Priceless.
