Party Recap

This party turned out really nice. The party was at 2pm so we served lots of snacks. Park parties are nice because there's no cleanup at the house but there is a lot of transporting! Lots of fun though. The main attraction was the bouncy house with a slide which kept the kids occupied. But the real highlight was the party favor . . . a trip to the candy table to fill up your pail with your favorites!!


Party Highlights

  • Desserts

    The snack food was mostly dessert! But the cupcakes I made were banana with cream cheese and chocolate frosting.

  • Activities / Games

    A Spiderman bounce house with a slide and hoop! I filled the jumpy with red and blue beach balls to continue with the color scheme. Every also got to take a ball home as part of their favor!

  • Best Moment

    Watching the kids' eyes light up as they picked out candy at the candy table!

  • What People Ate

    Snack Food: Brownies, popcorn, jello, berries and cream with poundcake, apples with caramel and chocolate sauce, watermelon. A red velvet bundt cake!

  • What People Drank

    Mostly water, soda, Snapple, and some juice pouches. There were also Otter Pops in the cooler which the kids loved!

    Great party! I always think I can't do a lot of detailed stuff if my party is someplace other than home, but you have changed my mind! My favorite was the jello cups in the cupcake display.

    Thanks Arika! I really like doing park parties. There is a lot of loading and unloading but at least I don't have to deal with cleaning up the house! I just did another party at the same park for my son's 4th birthday. It was a penguin party and I'm going to post pictures soon!!

    Hi there . . . thanks so much! Marshmallow pops are super easy. In fact, I am going to be making more this weekend for my son's Batman party. All you need are Wilton Candy Melts which can usually be found at your local craft or party store. They come in all colors. Lollipop sticks, sprinkles, and marshmallows. Heat the candy melts in your microwave according to the directions on the back of the package. Poke the marshmallow onto the stick and dip. Sprinkle the decorations on before the candy melts harden! Lots of fun and so much easier than cake pops . . . Good Luck!
