We threw a Neverland themed party for the boys this past weekend and despite some rain and a sick baby, I think it was still pretty successful. A lot didn’t get done because I was up all night with Wade and, while I had hoped to be doing party prep, I ended up taking two showers after being thrown up on four times. Yep, it was that kind of weekend.
The party was just a small family thing. In fact, there were only 4 kids there, including my two. But, that was just the right size for us. Everyone was supposed to wear pajamas like Wendy, Michael, and John from Peter Pan, so some of us looked like we just rolled out of bed – that was done on purpose!
We decided to do brunch so that we could get bagels and pastries from Ronnie’s favorite place to eat – Panera! We also included some of Wade’s favorites – peppers, tomatoes, crackers, and hummus (from Jason’s Deli).
I was able to get these cute stickers done by purchasing a voucher for Sticker You way back before Christmas. They are dishwasher-proof, so we decided to apply them to some Preserve cups – now we can reuse them and avoid the added trash.
Outside, we had activities for the kids. First up, the Indian Camp complete with teepee, drums, and homemade feather headresses. HOW! We also set up a Mermaid Lagoon with a water table, but that didn’t really get used since the weather was quite drippy. The last station was Pirate’s Cove, a treasure hunt through sand for gold coins, alligators, jewels, and bouncy balls. I didn’t get a chance to take a picture of it, but there were little bags and lists for the kids that told them what to find – similar to this one.
I had a “Neverland Swag” table set up with favors for both the adults and kids. Party guests over the age of 4 got little bags of meringue cookies and the little ones got flouro-dipped canvas bags with a Peter Pan Golden Book, goldfish, party cup, candy, and an alligator crayon (Made by Maxx)
