Little Eco's Purple Pear Farm Birthday Party

Farm party birthday invitation

Little Eco enjoyed a Purple Pear Farm Party for her recent 5th birthday. 

The party was simple, waste-free, natural, preservative-free and best of all Kate from Purple Pear did most of the work, leaving me to enjoy the day with Little Eco.

Birthday party drink bottle name tags

The food was simple - fruit kebabs and pop corn. A natural cordial was served in recycled glass bottles with paper straws. Farm animal drink bottle name tags, made using the you make do's old-fashioned farm party kit, were printed on recycled paper and tied on with hemp string.

There was a quick game of old-fashioned duck-duck-goose while we waited for guests to arrive. After a snack the kids went on a tour of the farm. They fed the ducks and geese, collected eggs, climbed on the tractor, we're thrilled to meet a 'real' farmer, cuddled some guinea pigs and fed the pony.

Farm animal birthday cake

Marble Cake natural colouring

The birthday cake was a marble cake I made using natural food colours. The farm animals are schleich models that Little Eco has kept as a memento of her farm party (and were, for me, a quick and easy way to decorate the cake). The 'grass' was created by shaking some shredded coconut in a jar with green food colouring.

Then there was a seasonal story about bulbs and each child got to take home their very own baby bulb to care for. 

Kate from purple Pear and Little Eco

I love that I could out-source Little Eco's birthday party, at a time that was extremely busy for me, without compromising on any of my ideals regarding waste, food and play.

The party was much easier (for me) than last years attempt at a good-old-fashioned simple and frugal birthday party and her gardening party the year before that.

Thank you Kate for creating a truly magical party. I hope that many more children get to experience the joy of one of your parties.

Kate then told a seasonal story about Sunflowers and the party guests got to collect their own Sunflower seeds to take home with a teeny jar of honey.

I've excitedly booked a party for Little Eco's upcoming fifth birthday party. I'm thrilled that I can outsource and still get a simple and waste-free party.
