Grace recently turned two and to celebrate we threw her a birthday picnic at our family farm in the Southern Highlands. We kept it quite a low key affair, just inviting our close family and friends. Luckily we woke up to a beautiful day so we could set the party up as a picnic and let the kids run around outside.
I always like to have entertainment at the kids’ parties so all our little guests are occupied so we had a birthday fairy entertain the children with various activities including games, dancing, face painting and colouring in. Mum also looked after the pony rides for all the kids which they all absolutely loved.
We wanted to keep our decorations simple so we had a pink and white colour theme throughout, which we carried through from the balloons to the cups and plates.
I always like to go for a menu that can cater to both adults and children so we decided to have a sausage sizzle and then scattered a few sandwich, cheese and fruit platters around. The kids had a few extras like sultanas, fruit, sandwiches, popcorn, cupcakes and a few lollies. The showstopper was definitely the cake which we had made by Stacy Brewer Cakes and it was decorated with pink flowers with a few gold accents. It was so pretty we almost didn’t want to cut it!
This was the first year Grace could really understand what was going on at her party and get involved with the activities so she had a ball. It was a lovely day spent with our nearest and dearest and I couldn’t have imagined a better way to celebrate our little girl turning two.
