Children’s Birthday Party

Party: The Fifth Terrace

The Party & Theme:

This children’s birthday party was a lunch play date for the birthday boy and his friends. The Fifth Terrace was transformed into ‘A Very Hungry Caterpillar’ themed picnic. A carpet of artificial grass covered part for the floor and draperies hanging from poles formed mini tents. Lunch was served buffet style with a menu of kids’ favorites including mac & cheese and corn dogs, while adults enjoyed cheese and charcuterie. The pièce de résistance of the party was the sweet table styled by Megan Wappel Designs. This spread of delicious sweets included cake pops, macarons, mini cupcakes, birthday cake, marshmallows, jello and green twistlers! Watermelon, goldfish and cheerios balanced all the sugar and completed this dessert buffet. Every detail referenced Eric Carle’s story and illustrations from the collage style signage, to holes in the watermelon slices. What a fun way to spend an afternoon on The Fifth Terrace.
