Its “feature friday” and I have been meaning to get this blog out for the past two weeks, each Friday slips past and I forget to click “publish”.
A little more than a month ago Meg from “Mommalike” and I did our last party together, before Megan spreads her own wings with “Buntings and Blooms”.
The venue of the party was the huge Beans & Stikkies Adventure Park, in Roodepoort. There is such a wide array of activities for kids to do from a zipline, to a castle or pirate ship. It probably has one of the biggest bike tracks I’ve seen and a mini garage to refuel your transport. Wendy and her team were so incredibly friendly and supportive in helping us set up. Its definitely on my list of recommended venues!
Peppa is probably one of the most popular themes for both little girls and little boys alike. Its a firm favourite in our house and has saved us from many a tantrum at the dinner table. Sugar and Paper Parties helped us bring our backdrop vision to life by designing a simple backdrop with Peppa’s famous hill, sun and house on the hill.
To complement the bright sunshine we used Peppa themed Sun cookies and flowers on a stick which we stuck into wheatgrass picket fence boxes. Whats a “Peppa Party” without Muddy puddles? I made up some “Muddy Puddle” Chocolate puddings and we accented the table with the birthday girls gumboots filled with flowers. The centerpiece of our sweet table was the incredible two tier masterpiece created by Kelly Jayne’s Cake Boutique.
For the kiddies table (and to encourage healthy eating) we spread “Grandpa Pigs Fruit” down the center of their table to snack on, served alongside the infamous “Mr Potato’s” Chips. Grass runners added in some detail with some rubber ducks scattered around. (The ducks are never far from a picnic!) A very special glass of strawberry milk was served alongside a sprinkle cookie and was paired with the birthday girls favourite pink blowers.
We custom made the party packs and filled them with some homemade play-dough, a pink milkshake straw, a strip of Peppa Pig stickers, a little yellow rubber duck, a Peppa Pig iced cookie, and a few sweeties.
A few other notable details were brought in with “Duck Pond Water” and “Mummy Pig’s” Pigs in a blanket.
Sam, I hope Bella had the time of her life and thank you for allowing us to play a special role in her day. I love understated themed parties, we managed to create a simply themed Peppa Party without splashing Peppa’s face on every paper plate 🙂 I hope I have managed to spread a little party inspiration with this post!
