We are so lucky to live where we live. Having a woodland area on our own property is such a treat for us (having previously survived with the tiniest backyard known to mankind). I have been wanting to host a little woodland party for a while now, and I found it to be the perfect location for a small Christmas party. Thanks to my sponsor, Pop Roc Parties, I was able to add some gorgeous little touches to this party that made it extra special (those Birch Straws stole my heart). I made all the food the night before, barring the sandwiches which I prepared in the morning. It required very little set up, and we were ready for our guests long before they arrived. After the party, the children exchanged Christmas gifts with each other, taking them home to open.
Food - Milk in bottles, Chocolate Wreaths, Snowman Sandwiches, Christmas Puddings, Snowpeas (brought by a friend) & strawberries.
Games - Find The Candy Canes. Zan hid these candy cane sticks in the trees, and the kiddos searched for them. They also shared Christmas crackers after they'd eaten.
Decorations - Wreath c/o Pop Roc Parties. Deer & Christmas Tree Toppers made into a snow globe, using this Christmas Snow Powder c/o Pop Roc Parties (the globe was part of the packaging from a gift E received recently. Never throw away curved plastic ;-)). Birch straws c/o Pop Roc Parties. Mini Milk Bottles c/o Pop Roc Parties. Thrifted tablecloth. Table and toadstools belonging to Eleanor. Handmade stool via my childhood.
I took more pictures on my sister's camera, which included our third guest (this guy), but we haven't yet swapped them over... I may share them here soon.
