Printable Pack: Babushka Party by Joyess Designs for Modern Printables
Party Food: Made by Tamara and her family and friends. Parfait (meringue, whipped cream, fresh fruit, jelly and chocolate flakes). Chocolate cupcakes with pink frosting and a freckle on top. Strawberry and raspberry jellies in small plastic cups. Mixed fruit (grapes, melon, strawberries, peaches) in small plastic cups. Muesli cups with layers of muesli, yoghurt and strawberries. Gingerbread men, honey jumbles and fairybread. The adults were served muesli cups (layers of muesli, yoghurt and strawberries) and bacon and egg rolls.
Decorations: From the printable Babushka Party pack, Tamara used the Babushka bunting with plain coloured paper spacers, attached the Babushka gift tags to the goodie bags, and sent out the editable Babushka invitation. Tamara says, "The kids and I really enjoyed making the bunting and garland. Hole punching and sticking are so much fun! I also bought some pink and white lanterns from the two dollar shop which were hung up outside."
Tips From Tamara:
1. I made far too many fruit cups and jellies. The kids’ favourites were the cupcakes and the fairybread!
2. Try to organise family or friends to come over early to help with the final setup. A lot of the food was only able to be prepared that morning, so it was great to have help. They arrived 30 mins before the party (and I was still in my PJs)!
3. I had bought a gorgeous new dress for Zoe to wear at her party, but of course she wasn’t interested in wearing that one and wanted to choose her own! I was quite happy to let her pick – as long as she had a good time! Her brother also chose his outfit – superman of course!
Something Special: Tamara says, "We organised a fairy to come to the party as a special treat. Zoe just loves fairies! Our fairy entertained the kids for about an hour with fairy dust, fairy wishes, a puppet owl, dancing games and face painting. The older kids (3-8 year olds) were totally enthralled. Some of the younger kids were a little scared and hung back at the start, but most joined fairyland before too long!"
Thank you so much Tamara for sharing Zoe's special day with us!
