I’m on a scavenger hunt to find the best blogs and I chose yours. I love it! This post stood out to me because I just planned my three little girls’ birthday party. Yes I said 3. There birthdays fall in weeks of each other and instead of trying to coordinate family and parties every weekend I decided to do one big one. To help me keep my sanity I try and plan food that I can prepare a head of time or order. That way the day of the party I am just decorating and setting up. I went to the dollar store and bought a whole bunch of goodies. They had bouncy balls (all ages likes those) and these water sticks that were for all ages. I especially like the parties were you can go somewhere and not worry about cleaning up afterwards. I know Lil J’s first birthday will be a success.
Finger foods for 1st birthdays are always a hit:
animal crackers, goldfish, puffs and or teddy graham crackers served with hotdogs or chicken nuggets. As for goodie bags, any type of fruit snacks would be good, or you can go all out and do a mini tote box favor or sand pail (since it’s a water park) filled with a juice box or mini water, candy, cake pops, shovel and maybe sunglasses. Here’s one cute idea:
How fun for you! Depending on what time of day you pick to have the party will determine if you are serving a meal or just snacks. At our “first” birthdays, we did finger foods for all the little ones: fruit, cheese, crackers, and sliced sandwich wraps make a great summer park or party food! Treat bags…. BUBBLES are a must. Our kids are 8 and 10 and still enjoy receiving bubbles. And of course your party theme will help determine what else goes in the goodie bags. Don’t forget to celebrate with a commemorative Piggies & Paws print!
