We celebrated Madelyn's 1st Birthday with a Peter Rabbit theme
The classic Beatrix Potter books
Country Cottage Style
I wanted to enjoy the party so I tried to keep things as simple as possible. There is nothing worse than being exhausted before the party even starts. We made simple BLT sandwiches, served veggies & dip, fresh berries and veggie potato chips. We did all the bacon in the oven to speed it up and my friends all brought their toasters to help toast in the morning. The food prep flew by!
The chips were served in individual favor bags that I cut in half and then trimmed to look like grass.
I made a cupcake tower out of terra-cotta pots from Home depot.
We served beverages out of a wheel barrow filled with ice.
The berries and veggies were a huge hit with kids.
We didn't play any games since the kids were all young- instead we had a pool filled with balls and a tunnel which kept them all busy and happy.
The favor bags were filled with Peter Rabbit organics smoothies, bunny ears, crayons and Peter Rabbit coloring books.
I've learned when it comes to food at parties, less is more. Simpler is better.
