We all know half the fun of a child’s first birthday party is the sugary sweet cake! Unfortunately this can also mean a sugar rush for the little ones as well as frosting all over that brand new 1st birthday dress. This can make for a group of CRANKY toddlers and not much fun for Mom and Dad. Take a turn towards the healthy with your birthday treats this year – we swear, the little birthday guests won’t even notice the difference.
I’m sure you’ve seen all the ads for those edible fruit bouquets made with yummy pineapples, strawberries and other assorted fresh fruit. This option is a great alternative to sugary preservatives found in traditional cakes and cookies, and all the pint-sized party guests will be mesmerized by the bright array of colors! Fresh fruit is wonderfully juicy and sweet, so it will still feel like a special treat for the kids. A dazzling fruit display can also help you decorate for the party – no need for a separate centerpiece for the table!
Another great healthy alternative is sherbet. It looks like ice cream and comes in many festive colors, so it’s perfect for a party! For just a little dash of indulgence, add one of those wafer sticks that come in chocolate, vanilla or strawberry varieties.
Now that the snacks are settled, plan her party attire with Sophias Style girls clothing store. We offer girls birthday dresses as well as baby birthday dresses in many sizes and styles so you’re sure to find a unique look that celebrates her!
