Enchanted Forest Party

For my daughters 2nd birthday we had an Enchanted Forest Party and I thought I'd share some of the pictures with you.

The best bit about creating this party was by far the food!

 I had great fun choosing names for all the different dishes...


Some of the names included fairy berries (raspberries), squirrel chips (dried bananas) ,birds nests (chocolate krispy cakes) and fairy wands (sticks with chopped fruit on).


I managed to get a good dose of healthy food in there too.


I made a wooden sign to go outside the hall instead of the normal balloons (see how I made this here)


For the decorations I went with a colour scheme of reds, whites, greens and browns. We put up our green gazebo in the hall and hung green crepe paper streamers from it...


 I also made some mini toadstools to scatter around the room and on the tables. (See how I made these here)



 For my daughters outfit I managed to find her a green fairy outfit in a charity shop which only cost me £3.00, bargain and I made her a flowery crown...


Following with the enchanted forest theme I didn't want to go with traditional party bags instead I made my own from old jam jars...


In all it was a great party and I think everyone enjoyed themselves although I'm not sure Lowenna really knew what was going on...

    1. Thank you. For favours I brought a big bag of noise makers and put a selection of them in the pots with sweets and lollies. I had to do something unisex as there was an equal amount of girls and boys x
