Real Party: Picnic Birthday Party

Real Party: Picnic Themed Birthday Party // A Well Crafted Party

This year my home parties have been pretty laid back due to busy schedules and tightening of budgets. But, being me, I still wanted to celebrate our milestones in some fashion. The picnic-themed party that I hosted for my husband’s birthday this year fit the bill for an easy, but fun event.

Picnic Birthday Party Menu:

Sandwiches: 

  • Pressed Italian Sandwiches
  • veggie sandwiches that I created that had carrots, olives, hummus, and cucumber layered on a flat bread
  • Chicken Salad Sandwiches
  • Rosemary Ham and Brie Sandwiches (SO GOOD– I’ll be sharing the recipe for this one soon!)

Chips: Sweet Potato and Kettle Chips — I just bought these chips at Trader Joes and then put them into paper bags that I had printed labels on.

Salads:

Dessert: We finished off the meal with a dessert of spiked ice creams.

Drinks: Signature cocktails, beers, and lemonades made for easy beverages

Finally, a selection of lawn games such as a ring toss, bocce ball, and badminton kept everyone entertained.
