PARTY DETAILS as told by Wynona…
My daughter turned two and the theme for her party was “Milk and Cookies,” featuring a soft palette of colours.
The main feature was the dessert table, which I wanted to look quite girly. The gorgeous ruffle table cloth was custom made and I balanced it with the tissue decorations hanging from the ceiling. The cake was the centre piece — further enhanced by the large frame behind it. The frame was from ikea, the backing board was removed and Fiona Treadwell wired in some fresh flowers to decorate.
Of course, we served fresh chocolate milk and homemade cookies. Other treats included thai coconut cupcakes, fondant decorated cookies, macarons and little milk cartons filled with snacks. The savoury food included homemade sausage rolls, meat pies, rice paper rolls, tea sandwiches and mini samosas.
To keep the kids busy, I set up a craft table for them to decorate their own boxes. The boxes were painted and embellished and used to fill with treats to take home. The party favours included little crayons sets with colouring books featuring pictures matching the milk and cookies theme.
