Creative invitations build excitement and can increase attendance at your child’s garden birthday party. If you have time to make your own invitations, be sure to involve your child in choosing the design and filling in the details. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Create a flower-shaped invitation from card stock so the petals fold down into a circle. When the petals are opened, it should resemble a blooming flower. Add the party details in the center, so they are revealed when the petals are opened.
Use a standard card-style invitation, and tie it with floral ribbon to a small terra cotta pot with a packet of flower seeds tucked inside. You will need to hand deliver these invitations.
It’s easy to create snacks for your garden birthday party, and clever food will add to the fun of the party.
The example of party favors and foods include the darling pink mini ombre cakes, the green and pink lanterns with butterflies attached strung above the eating table, the cute toadstool house cake, the lemonade stand, some daisy cookies and the grass full of daisies displayed on the dessert table.
For the activities, you may start with digging up a new patch of garden. Just make sure there is no underground conduit. Add some mulch to your little plot. Have a few seedlings to make it all awe inspiring.
Then you can go to planting seeds and finally watering the garden. And maybe after let the sprinkler run as the kids dash in and out of the water. Kids always love water!
You can also use some mini watering cans to water the garden as well. Kids can bring the watering cans back as souvenirs from your party. And every time they use them, you’ll know you’ve inspired a miniature gardener within them.
