and found sooooo many ideas on Pinterest it wasn’t funny. Seriously, how many ways can you do food that is themed to the caterpillar?
I’m keeping it simple, mainly cause Miss K has soccer the morning of the party and I need to make it as easy as possible!
How much more simple than taking my cues from the story!!
In the light of the moon, a little egg lay on a leaf – devilled eggs on a bed of lettuce leaves
For Monday (one apple), Tuesday (2 pears), Wednesday (3 plums – thinking we might do grapes), Thursday (4 strawberries) and Friday (5 oranges) – a fruit platter
chocolate cake – brownies
ice cream cone – maybe small ice cream cones filled with something not ice cream or ice cream lollies
pickle – not sure about this one
Swiss cheese – and biscuits
salami – maybe some twiggy sticks
lollypop – mini lollipops?
sausage – mini savs
watermelon (on the fruit platter)
Sunday The Caterpillar ate through a nice green leaf – a salad
The cocoon – these nutella ‘cocoons’
A beautiful butterfly – butterfly sugar biscuits
I’d like to do something like these
but it will most likely be something like these
And somewhere in there I’ll do sandwiches. That look like this.
Oh and the cake, but that I’m saving for next time.
Miss A turns one in August and I thought it was high time I got to work on organising her birthday party. After many hours on Pinterest I decided on either a pink & gold theme or A Very Hungry Caterpillar. I showed a heap of pictures to Miss K to help me choose and finally we decided on A Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing some ideas for invites, decorations, food and cake then after the party I’ll share our actual event.
Invitations can be a simple or as complex as you want. From bought invitations like these……
to handmade creations like these ……
we (read me) ended up making ours. Thank goodness for my Silhouette Cameo because I would have hated doing this by hand.
The first circle reads:
We can hardly believe a year has passed
Our little caterpillar has grown so fast
Join us for some afternoon tea & fun
Anastasia is turning ONE
The second circle has the date, time and location while the third has the RSVP details. I’ll include a recent photo of Miss A to the final circle.
