Best Kids Parties: Sweet & Simple

Best Kids Parties: Sweet & Simple

Carrie McBride

Name: Kieran (3)
Location: France

We held a very simple party for Kieran this year. Leading up to his birthday we had all been sick, so there wasn't much time to pull a major event together.

Between my husband and I we DIY'd all the food and decor starting the day before the party. I wanted something simple but colourful, and my main inspiration came from the printable Happy Birthday Banner that I hung above the table. After that I went through my stash of crafting and party supplies to pull everything else together. We literally only spent money on the food items. I relied heavily on ideas I had been saving on Pinterest, and used lots of free printables!

For the eats we had cake, cookies shaped like puzzle pieces, mini cheesecakes, marshmallows and party popcorn. Oh yeah, and a couple of savoury nibbles as well. For the table decor I finally used that bright green tablecloth I've been holding on to, and repurposed some vases to use for the treats along with plain white or green dishes. The guest list was short, mainly family and a few close friends and a fun time was had by all.

Thanks Francine! Readers, see more of Kiernan's beautiful party at Callaloo Soup.
