Although I was very impressed with the Disney Princess themed party food we made for Bob’s 4th birthday, it means that a standard has now been set. I now want to make the party food as good if not better for all of Bob’s party.
Pinterest is my best friend when it comes to party ideas and they have some great party food inspiration. I spent hours searching for Under The Sea ideas and planning our menu.
Here is what I made:
I thought that this was such a cute idea! I made cheese croissants and ham and cheese croissants. I then used half a slice of radish and stuck it to the croissant with cheese spread. Unfortunately the wobbly eyes and the cocktail sticks weren’t edible but Bob’s friends are old enough to know that.
I used two peppers for each octopus. One was used for the body and the other I cut into slices to make the legs. I stuck the olive slices onto the pepper with cheese spread to make the eyes. I also served some extra pepper sticks in case there weren’t enough.
I thought this was an easy way to include some more veg.
These were used to eat the tuna and sweetcorn pasta. This is Bob’s favourite food! She would even choose this over cake! As tuna is a fish I thought that this would fit in with our Under The Sea theme.
My husband loves cutting sandwiches into shapes and I knew this would make his day! 🙂 I almost pushed him over the edge with all the shape cutting we did for the Disney Princess party.
I cut cheese into little triangles. I thought this could be eaten with the Goldfish Crackers to make Under The Sea cheese and biscuits.
To be topped with sharks teeth or just eaten on their own. They are very moorish!
I always like to include some fruit. I think that a lot of children avoid it as they are parent free and there is cake but if it’s available I feel that I’ve done my part. I stuck the grapes onto a kebab skewer and called them seaweed to make them more exciting.
A couple of days before the party I thought there was something missing from our food plan. Apart from the cupcakes there was no other dessert. I had a brainwave that iced gems looked a bit like hermit crabs so I added these to our menu.
We also had chocolate cupcakes with white chocolate shell shapes on the top. I used the mould that I used to make my icing seashells for Bob’s birthday cake.
