Annie wanted themed trashy food for her party, I once again consulted friends, brainstormed ideas and came up with a sort of plan.
Drinks – I had green and orange cordial from Cottee’s and water, along with green & orange cups and matching straws in teeny tiny wheelie bins.
The first round of food that went out:
1. Individual fruit salad in orange and green (Trash Pack) colours (rockmelon, honeydew melon, green grapes and pineapple) in green bowls with teeny tiny forks.
2. Honey Joys
3. Funky large milk bottle filled with lollies and a bowl of freckles – both left over from filling the trashy treasure hunt bags.
4. Individual bags of popcorn – I filled each popcorn bag with 1 cup of coloured popcorn.
Second round was hot food, one of my friends picked up $20 worth of hot chips for me, we simply put them out on the table in the takeaway box. Another friend gave me a bunch of cardboard hot chip cups and the children were able to fill their cups using some super cute teeny tiny orange tongs I found.
Third there was muddy slime jelly cups (and plain green and orange jelly shots for those kids who do not like food touching), all served with super cute teeny tiny spoons.
The mud at the bottom is Cottee’s Instant Chocolate pudding, made using slightly less milk so it is a little firmer, topped with some gummy worms.
Finally the crowning glory, the birthday cake, made by a very talented mum at our school.
Drum roll please, presenting one very Trashie Trash Pack Cake….
It was a delicious chocolate cake inside with sour cherry filling – two layers of cake separated by a cake board for easy cutting
The lovely Cake Maker even provided 12 dairy free (nut free, natural food colouring) cupcakes for Heidi and other kids with allergies.
Mmmmm I’m hungry now looking at all those pictures
