All Other Excuses
Little Romy’s 3rd birthday was all about the story of the Gingerbread Man, a book she loved so much. We decided to bring the classic storybook to life with this Gingerbread Man themed party.“Run, run as fast as you can…” Taking this as inspiration we labelled the milk bottles with “drink, drink as fast as you can”. Also, the dessert table with “eat, eat as fast as you can”. Each of the desserts reflected a different element of the story. There was the delicious marble mud cake featuring the gingerbread man flying a fox kite, and gingerbread flavoured mini cupcakes. For entertainment, the kids got their hands dirty at the craft table, decorating their own gingerbread man and getting their faces painted. At the end of the party, each of the kids left with a super cute goodie box (which looked like a mini-oven) with a gingerbread man inside. Instead of your typical lolly bag, this goodie box contained gingerbread recipes, a mini gingerbread cookie cutter and a gingerbread man cookie.
