Last year we threw a Spy themed party for our middle daughter when she turned 8. We invited both boys and girls and it was a big hit with everyone! I tried to tie in the games with the theme, as well as keep with a colour scheme of yellow, black and white. Not at all a girly party, but that’s what she wanted and she was over the moon!
Today I’m sharing some pics of the food and dessert we served at our Secret Agent birthday party. Wherever possible I tried to tie the party food in with the theme. The kids drank Truth Serum (water), and ate Secret Sandwiches, Detective Dogs (mini hot dogs), Meat Bombs (meat balls), Spy’s Pies (party pies) and fruit – unfortunately I didn’t think up a clever spy related name for the fruit in time! And the kids had eaten most of the savoury stuff before I thought to take a photo – oops! The food tents and water bottle labels I made using picmonkey.
A while ago I offered to make some fondant decorations for a friend to put on her daughters’ birthday cake. There were only two days to go until her party so I said nothing too big that would take a long time to make and dry. Her first thoughts were athletics and gymnastics, which scared me when I imagined making little people in a rush. But then she told me her daughter also loved jungle animals, so we went with that theme – much easier to make animals than people!
