A Traveler's Party -Part Two-

"TRAVELING AROUND THE WORLD"

France
{ Sweets and Painting Activity }


It is extremely difficult to maintain desserts at an outside party on a hot summer day, nevertheless....I tried!  Cakepops got a little melted and they started looking like real paint but I think the idea came across and I had extras inside!...Painting in France ladies and gents!  With CAKEPOPS!!  I was inspired by Terri's Treasures' Cakepops created for Paper and Cake's Art Party Printables {which is a must see} and I created the look using our party's color palette.


 

Our entire table featuring an art/painting theme with petit fours and macarons from our local French Market.

Again, using only our color palette!

USA
{ Kids Lunch }


American Apple Pie 



Snack Boxes from Paper & Pigtails



Hot dogs! 
Bag toppers by Simple Tastes ~ Travel Handmade labels by In Flight




Peanut Butter Sandwiches!
The adults had a choice of burgers and bbq pork sandwiches inside!! (Sorry kids)



4th of July Activities worked great on our USA table



Handmade banner that adorned our USA table 



Germany
{ Drinks Table and Game }


Drinks were coordinated to represent the color of the Germany Flag


For game we played Koffer Packen which translates to The Suitcase Game which I found at eHow.com. "The children sit in a circle and create a song by adding their own individual phrases to the existing phrase. The child who starts the game sings the sentence, "I packed my suitcase and place a book inside." Then, the child sitting to the left of the starter must sing the sentence and add his own phrase'...and so on



Mexico
{ Cookies }


Maracas and Mexican Hats Cookies from Lori's Place



Mexican Fortune Cookies from Oh Goodie Designs 
( so cute, they look like mini tacos )




This fiesta banners from Paper and Cake can be personalized, Love them!






Italy
{ "Pizzas" and Mustaches }

Japan
{ Sushi }

Handmade Airplane and Maps Garland I created for between the tables.
