When it comes to birthday parties for my little one, I look for something unique that suits her personality. She has a musical DVD that shows kids acting out different songs; one of which, is Little Bo Peep. She acts it out right along with them every time it comes on. So, I decided that would be our theme for this past December's birthday.
I made these lamb place card holders (with cotton balls) as Little Bo Peep's lambs, who were holding "Where Are Ewe" signs. I used a strip of green outdoor carpet as the table runner. It was an affordable and easy solution.
For food, I resisted the urge to serve lamb (cracking myself up), and chose to serve a wide assortment of appetizers. We had chicken fingers, quiche, ham rollups, a veggie tray, guacamole, pigs 'n a blanket, and tomato & mozzarella salad with basil, which I set up in my office/craft room to make room for an extra table in the kitchen.
For the kid's favors, it was all lambs and Bo Peep...of course! I found lamb stickers and a lamb card that said, "I Wooly Appreciate Ewe" at my local Christian book store. Since it was December, I found adorable candy cane shaped crayons, which doubled as staffs. Plus, I made white chocolate lambs with molds and melting dots.
I took this picture to the Great American Cookie Company so they could decorate the cake.
A collection of lambs and candy on a square of outdoor carpet was what I used to decorate the kids table.
A homemade lamb crossing sign welcomed our guests as they arrived.
She had a great time celebrating with her family, and even acted out the "Little Bo Peep" Song for them.
