Birthday: 5th Birthday Party adventure
Organised by: Birthday Boy Eti and his Mum Anni
Location: An adventure starting at Balmain East Ferry Wharf and ending with a treasure hunt and birthday picnic at Wendy Whiteley Secret Garden, Lavender Bay, NSW.
Theme: Adventure + Yellow Ducks
Cake: Yellow Duck
Decorations: Djeco hand-sewn birds, orange vintage sheet bunting.
Handmade: Eti drew the duck picture for his invitation, Mum made the cake, muffins and chocolate chip cookies in the shape of ducks with the help of a cookie cutter. Dad Matthew painted yellow letters on the paper bag goodie bags so that the kids could choose their own letter.
Catering: Bagel House mini-bagels.
Tips: The kids made their own goodie bags by collecting treasure hidden throughout the garden, including wooden finger-puppets and mini toys sourced from Sydney's Paddy's Markets, Smiggle duck erasers and mini chocolcate bars.
Something Special: The adventure of catching the ferry and walking past Luna Park to the Wendy Whiteley Garden was great entertainment for the kids. The treasure hunt was a great way to build the goodie bags and tire out the guests at the end of the day.
