Party: Tommy's 3rd Birthday Party
Organised by: Mum Alison (Alison Lawson Cakes)
Location: Bowral, NSW
Theme: Peppa Pig
Cake: Made by Mum, Alison (Alison Lawson Cakes). I kept the birthday cake design clean and simple with handmade iced images of Peppa and George.
Party food: I used my collection of white milk glass cake stands plus a few white platters to display the food. Chocolate crackles are an old favourite and kind of like a Peppa Pig-inspired muddy puddle! Chocolate spoons were a total hit, and so simple to make. Watermelon Pops are also super-easy - simply insert a paddle-pop stick into watermelon wedges. I also made popcorn and green swirly meringues and added the rainbow-striped sour straps.
Decorations: Tommy loves balloons, so we splurged on some helium balloons from our local party shop. The favour bags are by Paper Eskimo and they provided some great colour as a very simple back-drop for the dessert table.
Birthday Boy Wears: Skinny jeans and jumper by Fox & Finch. Shirt by Ralph Lauren.
Games/activities: Given the age group, we kept it very simple. Pass-The-Parcel and Musical Statues fitted the bill rather nicely! We were also really lucky with the weather and the children played together outside on the lawn.
Tips: I always include at least one gluten-free item in my party menus. Meringues are my favourite because they can be colour-matched so easily, but they are also a delicious option for any gluten-intolerant guests.
Something special: I think this is the first time Tommy has really understood his birthday! His little face was beaming with delight all day, which totally warmed everyone's hearts!
Thank you so much Alison for sharing Tommy's party with us. What a cutie!
