2 WEEKS OUT

Make the décor

  • Buy balloons that look like worms – these are roughly 1m in length.
  • Blow them up yourself or fill them with helium the day of the party. 
  • Bunting will make any event seem even more festive.
  • Buy colourful paper holders for homemade cupcakes or muffins. You'll find these at any major retailer or specifically baking stores.

1 WEEK OUT

Party clothes

  • Make sure your birthday boy or party princess is dressed accordingly.
  • Find fun fruity designs like this T, or buy a plain T-shirt and some fabric paint and test your creativity.

TIP!

Have the guests paint their own T-shirts too by providing them with a white shirt, and some fabric paint and sponges cut into fruit shapes.


THE DAY BEFORE

Get the food ready

  • Make your own hungry caterpillar red apples.
  • Buy small red apples.
  • Download, print and cut out the hungry caterpillar desing on our website. Cut it in half.
  • Now make incisions on both sides of each apple and insert the cut out. 
  • Make the incisions just before the party to prevent the apple from browning.
  • Add yummy fruity treats like these jelly sweets.
  • Offer muffins as a healthy alternative. Buy them or make them yourself.
