For Tristans and Taylas combined birthday celebration, Andelle chose a party setting nestled near the edge of a lush green forest at Galagos Country Estate, a popular South African wedding venue. A sweet and savory snack table offers a scrumptious variety of refreshments. Dried fruit, double chocolate cookies, red toffee apples, peanut caramel cookies, pretzels, and raisins all go perfectly with chilled mini bottles of chocolate milk. Wooden spoons are tied with ribbon on chocolate mousse jars, for serving with ease. Slim, wooden rectangular trays blend easily with the décor. Andelle shared her secret recipe for unequalled Rice Krispies Treats: Melt 2 tablespoons of butter over low heat in a saucepan, then add 30 marshmallows, and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat and add 4 cups Rice Krispies cereal and 1 can condensed milkthats the secret! Stir until well coated. Press into a pan using wax paper. Allow to cool, then cut into squares before dipping ends into your favorite melting chocolate.
A rustic guest table, crafted by local artisan Tjaart van Wyk, needs little adornment. Simple wood stumps and crosscut placemats, provided by conservation manager Trent Sinclair, are the perfect complements. Andelle decorated naturally using real greenery and pretty pinecones, plus diminutive brushed gold forest animal figurines.
After enjoying their tasty treats, little friends of the forest were free to frolic! Paper masks, designed by beloved childrens author-illustrator (and world traveler) Jan Brett, transformed party guests into lively woodland creatures.
Tristan and Tayla thanked their guests with kraft bags full of whole pecans, customized with pretty labels.
This irresistible woodland forest birthday party has a universal charm for boys, girls, and parents. Something about the scenes portrayed in Andelles exquisite photos makes me hold my breath, as if I might somehow interrupt the appealing tranquility emanating directly from the photos! I can almost hear the sweet giggles echoing softly through the underbrush, as frisky foxes play tag with happy hedgehogs and bouncing bunnies
