Sayla is a go-with-the-flow little girl. She’s a free spirit. She loves people. She gets excited about small things. She loves playing outside. What better party for her than a low-key picnic party with people she loves? I had such a fun time planning this party and I felt like all the elements reflected our little sassy-but-sweet girl perfectly!
Invites: Simple and sweet with a paper lantern theme. My favorite parts were the clear bag envelopes and the confetti floating around in the envelope.
Menu: Sack lunches. Guests had their choice of turkey or ham sandwiches individually wrapped in parchment paper, choice of chips, choice of mac-n-cheese or potato salad (also in individual serving sizes) bottled drinks, watermelon and, of course ice cream sandwiches and popsicles!
Games: Sayla Bingo! I made bingo cards with simple graphics of things Sayla loves and instead of yelling bingo the winner yelled “Happy Birthday Sayla!” It was a perfect game for kids and adults alike!
Favors: My favorite part of any party! These were mini-picnic baskets with snacks Sayla would pick for a snack at the park: fruit leather, gummie bears, a sucker, cheese crackers, cookies and raspberry lemonade.
