Just like so many other people, I’ve spent hours upon hours drooling over dessert buffets posted by dozens of event designers, moms and other bloggers. That said, I always try to make sure that healthy options of some kind are available at the parties I put together. At T’s first birthday, I made the caprese toadstools and the vegetable tray. Fresh berries & tea sandwiches were available at the 60th birthday tea party. Fruit baskets and vegetables were available for Little Bear’s Barnyard Party. I even got some guacamole and fresh fruit in at the Toy Story birthday party last month.
This is why I’m so incredibly happy to be seeing more creative and fun ways to incorporate healthy foods into party displays. My absolute favorite is this vegetable display from My Bride Story:
Homespun with Love put together these adorable vegetable patch cups:
I’ve had other ideas for how to incorporate healthier alternatives into parties, and will be working on some ideas for my party in May. Do you think this is actually a trend in the making…or just a few fun ideas?
