  • Unless you have older kids at the party, first birthday parties are not about the one-year old, it is a milestone for the parents. So have a barbecue with adult food and drink and some balloons and cupcake(s) for baby. Take lots of photos.

  • I find childrens party is always the easiest and they can play in the park as well . Some of what I did in the past were, 100’s and 1000’s sprinkles on bread, cocktail frankfurts with variety of sauces normally tomato, mixed salad , chips, dips and crackers , carrot , celery sticks etc .

  • Chips.
    Fairy Bread.
    Mini Muffins.
    Honey Joys.
    Coconut Balls.
    Cold Meat Sandwiches.
    Mini Pizzas.
    Mini Kebabs.
    Weenie Dogs.

    Best of luck & Happy Birthday to your wee one.

  • Fairy bread

  • Small pizza’s! Mini muffins, coconut chips…

  • Melon balls in several varieties areaways a hit. Mini wraps, fairy bread in star shapes etc.

  • We are a healthy house so we don’t do junk food at birthday parties but for out last birthday which was at a park as well we did the following things
    Fruit kebabs, muffin size quiches ( still tasted good at room temp), apple zucchini and carrots muffins, banana bread, chicken and ham sandwiches, celery and carrot sticks with dip, vege chips and lentil crisps

  • fruit kebabs ( on straws), little sandwiches and maybe some kabana/cheese and dips :)

  • A colourful fruit platter, cupcakes and fairy bread. Chips are always a favourite for the older kids.

  • Pop corn, fruit sticks, fairy bread and butterfly cakes!

  • fruit platter, plain popped popcorn, fruit juice poppers all teh fun stuff

  • If there’s going to be a good number of people there, buying food from Costco is great. The ready to eat stuff!

  • bbq’s are always good – i think everyone likes them

  • sandwiches, frankfurts with sauce, cold pizza slices as well as some lollies and dips and biscuits

  • I’d suggest a bbq and have cupcakes, lollies, chips, dips etc hun.
