Birthday Week: Picnic Baskets


This week we celebrate my boys’ 2nd and 5th birthdays. Where does the time go?

We had a small combined party for the boys on the weekend just gone.  As things have been fairly busy here, I wanted to make the party simple, but fun for the kids.

We decided on having the food for the adults inside and for the children to have a picnic together outside.  My kids loved this idea.

To make it extra fun I popped out to the Dollar Store and bought a mini picnic basket for each of the kids. I think they cost about $2.50 each.Party Planning: Picnic Basket

I got my eldest to fill each of the baskets with picnic treats like sandwiches, biscuits, juice and lollies.Party Planning: Picnic Basket

With a little napkin for the top and a name tag, they looked cute.Party Planning: Picnic Basket

Unfortunately, come party time, the threatening rain meant we had to abandon the picnic mat and pillows on the lawn.  Instead we took shelter under the patio.

Not the picnic we intended,  but the kids had lots of fun anyway.

I love how the simple idea of making the kids’ party food a little different and personalised, turned our relatively simple birthday gathering into something special.
