Preparing a birthday party for children can cause stress. But not with this time schedule and 6 delicious and healthy recipes!
Perhaps you wonder why I give a wrap-up and timetable at the end of several theme days?
Because I use it myself when preparing for the photoshoot day. Because I always take a picture of as many dishes as I can to use for this post. So that means that everything must be ready in time. The dishes I put in the picture are all real. You could eat them right off this table (and we do ;-)).
From personal experience
But if I start early in the morning, when not prepared, then the ice is melting, while the cupcakes are still in the oven (and believe me that's what happened to me).
So, from that moment on, I write my preparations on a piece of paper, so I can fully concentrate on the shoot on the day of the photos.
Wrap up, time table and recipes
After six delicious recipes for a children's party, today's wrap-up schedule and recipes.
And I hope it takes out the nerves with you next time you host a party!
