when I spoke to Elizabeth about what kind of party we should have, she said she wanted a jewelry-themed party, with “lots and lots of sparkling jewelry.” The theme sounded alright to me, until I noticed that she was taking it too far. I felt she was too young to obsess about such things. I knew that we had to change the party theme.
So, when I asked Elizabeth one thing that she liked, she eagerly replied “daisies!” This was PERFECT!, Elizabeth was in her first year as a girl scout, and she could celebrate in style with all of her Daisy friends! I was so excited to work with this theme, especially the colors of white, yellow and green. Finally, it wasn't a princess or movie character party!
What People Ate
snacks including fruit, vegetables, juice, a daisy shaped quiche, and of course, even daisy picks for the cheese, sandwiches and pizza
What People Drank
lemonade, apple and fruit juices, water. There was a little "bucket" with beer for the dads since the party was on Father's Day
gumballs, giant marshmallows, vanilla cake pops , vanilla mousse cups, and of course cookies – but not just any cookies...but cookie rings. The daisy/ flower cookie rings sat upon “moss cookies.
The Secret Garden coloring book, set of pencils and a little package with daisy seeds that read " Forget me not" on it. Elizabeth also had her “Daisy Stand” all set up for when her friends arrived! She had daisy headbands for the girls and green bow ties for the boys, and lace ribbon wands for all of the guests.
Activities / Games
It just so happened that across from the community room was a large playground for the children to play on! We had a giant chess set the kids could play with, croquet, a ring toss game, and lacy tents set up for the girls to have pretend tea parties in!
