With the all the hype about the new revival of Smurfs, my 9 year old daughter Samantha wanted to have a Smurfday Party. I set about looking for ideas and must say I didn't find too many, so I decided that I'd share with you some of the things we did.
It was relatively easy to find things in turquoise blue and red to use as decor, and possibly the greatest hit of the day was the Smurf Juice (Plain old lemonade with a couple of drops of food colouring!) I made 2 beer box cakes and added red food colouring to one, and blue to the other. For the Toadstool, and put some cake mixture into a small glass mixing bowl and bake it in the oven. I had to cut a bit of it off to create the top of the toadstool and balanced it on a cupcake. It was a bit top heavy, so I used a kebab stick to keep it in place and stuck a marshmallow on the top.
I've included the printables I made for the cupcake toppers for free download. I also created little Smores bags header cards which were stapled onto a bag containing Maries and Marshmallows. We did Boerie rolls so the kids could make their own smores around the braai.
We had the party at Springside Nature Reserve and the kids had a blast playing in the stream and the weather was glorious!
