When the Savvy Mom team and I came up with a picnic theme for this month's birthday party, I was thrilled. What a great way to host the easiest of birthday parties, in a setting that every child enjoys - the outdoors.
The thing about picnic parties is that they don't require much work and the natural green elements of your backyard or park provide a colourful backdrop for a few simple decorations. I like to embellish my parties with things I already have on hand, so bicycles, ribbons and tissue paper pom poms work great.
When it comes to the food, sandwiches are always a great option as are salads. And since it's usually to hot to offer ice cream or popsicles, what about serving fruit salad in a waffle cone with a dollop of whipped cream. Don't forget about the drinks - a lemonade bar is the perfect way for guests to customize their beverages.
For my next party, I'm going to make some of these mason jar sippy cups. Aren't they brilliant?
