If your little girl loves the garden or just the sweetness of flowers, why not throw her a flower themed birthday party? Here are some ideas for floral fun.
Flower party theme invitations
Make cute little tissue-paper flowers taped onto a bit of cardboard for the party invitations. Cut out circles from colourful carboard and attach a green stem and some crepe paper petals. Fill out the information for the party and send.
Anything with flowers! A cute floral skirt or dress is probably already part of the wardrobe. Doesn’t need to be costume-y at all, but a flower in the hair, or tucked behind the ear, would be highly appropriate!
Flower birthday party theme decorations
Strings of flower garlands hanging around the house or pergola. A couple of leis from the budget stores restrung on a long piece of string will also do the trick. So too will these tissue-paper flowers. They’re simple to make and look sweet hanging from trees over the food table as a hanging centrepiece or just instead of balloons!
A bowl of floating flowers – snip off the stems and let them float on top of a bowl of water.
Party places – keep old jam jars, twist wire around the top so it creates a handle and hang around the yard with a single bloom in each one.
Get creative and make a fruit flower centrepiece for the table. For example: slide a single grape onto a skewer, then a piece of melon or a kiwifruit round onto the skewer and top with a single grape to make a daisy. Or start at the tip of a strawberry, cut most of the way down into quarters, leaving a centimetre or so uncut at the top. Invert the strawberry and slide it onto a skewer. Then open it up a bit to form a tulip and insert a blueberry – use sprigs of fresh mint on the lower portions of the flowers for leaves.
Fill balloons with helium and tie bunches of coloured balloons to chair backs – let some float to the ceiling. Twist assorted coloured streamers together and stretch them across the walls and windows.
Try making green and purple streamers with tissue paper flowers attached along the lengths. You could also make paper flowers entwined around light fittings or even paper lanterns.
If your time is limited, don’t try to make everything for the party and simply buy what looks best or even get the children involved and see what they can create for the day.
