Sara turned nine (nine!!) a few weeks ago, so last week we organised a birthday party for her and her friends. I always ask what sort of birthday my kids would want (we’ve had themes like horses, knights, disco, cooking, sushi and a treasure hunt before), and this time, Sara came up with the idea of strawberries. A cute idea I thought!
So she invited 9 girl friends to come home with her after school, and we decorated the table for a sweet strawberry high tea. With finger sandwiches, cakes, strawberry tea, real cups and saucers, and lots of strawberries of course!
As activities, we let the girls clean the strawberries for strawberry jam. They made labels for the jars, and together with Oma made the jam and filled their little jars.
We also bought a terracotta pot and strawberry plant for each of the girls to decorate, plant, and take home.
It was a lovely afternoon, and the girls (and Pim) had a wonderful time!
What an adorable and genius party idea….damn I wish I had a child’s birthday during strawberry season! We might have to pinch your idea but twist it to oranges instead to fit with the fruit available at birthday time of year 🙂
What a wonderful idea! I might steal it for my daughter’s birthday in August. Thank you…
Wow, you put on awesome parties for your kids!!! Looks like so much fun! Such a great memory for all of the children invited! 😀
Zo leuk, Esther!

[…] honestly admit that I was a bit at a loss what to do with this theme. I mean, a strawberry high tea, a cooking party, or a disco party — I didn’t have to think long with coming up with […]
