Best Kids Parties: Blueberries

My Party

Name: Torsten (3)
Location: Medford, NJ

Torsten's love of all things blueberry is the stuff of legends. And with a birthday in July, what better party for our little blueberry than a blueberry picking birthday bash!

I am fortunate to have cultivated a team of fantastically talented people to help me pull it off. The invitations and graphic work got the ball rolling, pulling in different shade of blue, green and purple. From there it was all things blueberry.

The party was held at the local pick-your-own farm. We served blueberry muffins, bagels, tartlets, frozen blueberries on skewers, a blueberry dressed ombre cake and even mini blueberry pies in jelly jars. For décor we affixed leaves to various shades of blueberry paper lanterns, used picnic baskets as props and served lemonade out of giant mason jars. Each child received a pint size wooden berry basket filled with a blueberry shaped giant cookie to take home.

When everyone had their fill of the goodies, we boarded a tractor pulled wagon for the blueberry fields to pick our own.
