There were lots of little details, but the celebration itself was very simple. We ate food, we read stories, we picnic-ed and we played a game or two. There were some lovely gifts to unwrap, and lots of running about.
This beautiful teepee by Mocka added much charm (full review in another post), with the kids rushing from food table, to picnic mat, and finally retreating into this quiet space.
Even though the little bits of decorating & food prep & favour making did take some time (most done during the quiet months leading up to the party), the day itself was relatively simple and stress free. The Hawkes Bay surroundings were picture perfect, and the guests were very close friends and family. Simple and sweet. Perfect for our two year old (though she did lose the plot on more than one occasion, if you must know the absolute truth!). Next I will show you the favours (I've been dying to for months), and the gift we made for her...
And honestly, I feel like having a few very quiet days between now and the next round of celebrating.
