Physically Distant F loral Birthday
This year birthdays were a little different. With the world brought to a halt with the COVID-19 pandemic, we spent the summer wondering what this would mean for upcoming parties and events. For this floral-loving birthday girl we hosted immediate family in our "bubble" to join us for an intimate, physically distant backyard celebration.
No one wants to spend frivolous money during a pandemic so this flower themed party was the perfect opportunity to use the party supplies I had on hand, flowers cut fresh from the garden, and some creativity!
We decked out our swing for the birthday girl to sit in while opening presents, which also provided a nice backdrop for family photos. Favors for the little cousins included floral crowns and floral temporary tattoos, while the grownups received matching masks handmade by the birthday girl's aunt along with hand sanitizer - all wrapped up to look like flowers in a pot.
Since we wanted to stay as physically distant as possible, the food and treats were all individually prepared and included fruit cups, caprese salad cups, and veggie/dip cups. Individual sweet treats like ice cream cones, macarons, and floral cupcakes were passed around. No candles on the cake this year, so the showstopper on top were gorgeous sugar flowers instead, and the birthday girl blew out a tapered candle on the side.
Even the bar was physically distant - while I would normally make a big bowl or drink dispenser filled with appropriately themed punch, we opted for individual bottles of mixers and liquor so guests can prepare it themselves - with a big bottle of wet wipes to wipe down the bottles after use.
