As a friends daughter once said "party time, party time!" On Saturday we had a party to celebrate one year as the parents of the lovely Mima. To our delight Mima loved it as much as we did.
The theme was 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' so we had fruit balloons and a happy birthday sign made from leaves as decorations.
The food at a party is very important, so I loved the idea of a theme that heavily influenced the food. The menu was based on what the caterpillar eats in the book, I tried to include everything he ate in some form or other.
Below is the menu:
apples - cider
plums - mini plum crumbles
strawberries - strawberry champagne
oranges - mandarins and orange juice
chocolate cake - chocolate brownie
ice cream cones
pickles - baby gherkins
cherry pie - mini cherry pies
sausage - homemade sausage rolls
cupcake - a caterpillar cupcake birthday cake
watermelon - this is the only thing I didn't manage to include as the fruit is out of season
