As you may have guessed by many of my posts, I am a grandmother.
My daughter Lindsay loves planning parties and is exceptionally good at it :) This is Charlotte's 2nd birthday. Sit back and collect some ideas for your next party. The theme of this party is "bunnies".
Use things you already have (green container and little porcelain bird on basket), buy paper plates, colorful napkins and clear cups and utensils.
Lindsay embroidered the bunny and put it in a wooden hoop to put on Charlotte's bedroom wall.
Rose lemonade with striped and polka dot paper straws.
The food with Charlotte's name embroidered. Flowers from the garden.
Young children have simple tastes.....Strawberry sandwiches and honey sandwiches, cut into two hearts with a sandwich cutter.
Let's not forget the peanut butter and jam :)
What little bunny doesn't love carrots and celery sticks in ranch dip?
The most decadent lemon cupcakes I have ever had, little chocolate eggs (Cadbury mini eggs) and more flowers from the garden.
The decoration to the right is a large wooden embroidery hoop with different colors and prints of ribbon tied on. See the bunny garland across the mirror? Cute!!!
Tissue paper decorations bought at the party store, more bunnies and the plastic eggs are from Walmart, strung onto some twine with a needle. The eggs came with holes in both ends.
Charlotte the birthday girl and her adoring sister Kennedy.
This is the adult food......chicken salad in an avocado half. The chicken salad is rotisserie chicken with black beans, corn, tomatoes, and tortilla chip pieces. It was soooooooo good :)
Charlotte received a "Fancy Nancy" outfit and played the part!
I need to mention that Maisie, another one of my cute grand daughters was at her cousin Charlotte's party. I took lots of photographs and she came up to me as if she was saying "Grammie, is that you behind the camera? What are you doing Grammie?"
"Is that really you Grammie? Let me see....."
It's cupcake time Charlotte!!! Love the individual cupcake holder.
Did you remember me telling you that those lemon cupcakes were yummy?
Every party needs some games. All the kids are paying attention, it's the memory game.
I hope you were able to get some ideas for your next party :)
