This party was so much fun!
Apart from 3 food items (marachino cherries, green icing and cabanossi) everything was free from artificial colours and flavours. Most of the food was also gluten free, dairy free and egg free.
The kids LOVED all the fruit, and the adults loved the lack of sugar highs!
It was very cold and windy (we live on a big hill), so most of the children borrowed jackets from my son's wardrobe and their lovely party clothes were hidden underneath!
Fresh fruit, cupcakes, cherry tarts, cookies, Smarties and birthday cake.
Activities / Games
Play equipment, trikes, ride-on toys, John Deere tractor, trucks and birthday
Bubbles, a couple of Natural Confectionery lollies, mini ball and paddle game, party blower, mini pack of crayons and a handmade custom colouring book (each child's book had their initial and name on front, and pictures inside corresponding to the letter of their name)
Singing happy birthday to my son - he was thrilled!
What People Ate
Food from the book: Apples, pears, plums (dried prunes), strawberries, oranges (mandarin slices), watermelon, chocolate cake, cupcakes, cherry pie (cherry tarts), cheese, salami (cabanossi), pickles (cucumber sticks), and nice green leaves (plain cookies with green icing and a little caterpillar made out of Smarties/choc beanies)
What People Drank
Apple juice (watered down) in little vintage look plastic milk bottles, with retro paper straws. Also available was pure apple juice, orange juice, water, tea and coffee.
Most Touching Moment
When my son's best friend (almost 2 year old, Miss N) arrived at the party and I lead her to the party table to pick something to eat. She was so excited by all the food, and grabbed a large strawberry for each hand. I was so happy to provide fruit rather than lollies, and this moment proved just how exciting healthy food can be for kids when you display it right!
Watching all the kids ride down our footpath really fast on trikes, and their evil laughter when their parents fretted. Little dare devils!
