I am always giddy when I get to work on something for Bird's Magazine.
Nothing I adore more than a unique + whimsical play date idea for the kids. I came up with this little cutie and assembled an awesome Team Glitta Mouse to help my squeaky vision come to life. I decided on a sweet + charming inspiration theme with a twist of hilarity~
A Juice + Cheese Tasting Play Date~Just like and adult wine + cheese tasting, but way cuterJ Introduce kids to different types of cheeses and unique juices while squeaking around the joint having cheesy FUN!.
Some of the dirty deets + ideas:
- Keep items on the tiny side to play up the little mouse accents.
- I featured pastels, unexpected grown-up glam crystal serving pieces, festooning, glitter, cheese + mice accents.
- Handmade mouse + cheese invitation sets the tone for this whimsical and cheesy party. Matted and framed for extra dramaJ
- Sprinkle dipped marshmallows with gray striped paper straws and coordinating ribbon ties.
- Mini cupcakes in hand glittered candy cups, pastel frosting, topped with out of control cute fondant Swiss cheese slice toppers.
- CHEESEcake, of course, with hand dyed ribbon cake flag drama.
- Fancy cheese cube wedges for taste testing.
- Cheese wedge favor boxes for even more fun to go!
- Juice tasting with three different carafes of juice, labeled/numbered with mini wreaths with tiny mice on them …juice to be sampled in tiny thimbles. Kids can choose and rank their fave juices by number, Kind of like a Three Blind Mice taste test..Come on, funny..LOL
- Cheese wedge cookies presented/displayed on mouse traps…
- Handcrafted coordinating ruffled streamers add to the shabby + sweet vibe.
- Set up unexpected play areas for the kids..I styled little mouse hole areas on the floor/walls area to be discovered by the kids. They love the unexpectedness of kid eye level décor. Mouse party area decorated with sweet Swiss cheese + ribbon party banners.
- Vinyl mouse holes add ultimate cuteness. Featured matchboxes are where the mice sleepJ
