Easy Woodland Forest Party with Store Bought Treats:  This pretty little party was easy to put together with all the forest themed food bought at the grocery store.  No baking, just fun.  Easy enough to put together for your kids with one trip to the grocery store.

Last week we were away with friends at the lake.  It’s such an inspiring place, because it’s so beautiful.  Before we left I had the idea that it’d be fun to put together a little Woodland Forest Party for the little girls.  They loved it, and it was really, really easy to put together, since I used all easy store bought treats.

I thought I’d share the details with you, in case you have some little people who might enjoy a little woodland forest party, that’s not too tricky for mom or dad to put together.

I found the perfect spot beside the lake and started out with setting up this little tent.  I used an old quilt for a picnic blanket, and hung up a pretty mosquito netting, we had from Ikea.  It made the perfect little magical tent for them.

A few cushions gave them a soft spot to sit, and an old wooden box was the perfect table, and spot to rest their treats.

I had fun decorating with easy wild flowers in mason jars, and a few fun little woodland animals.

I had so much fun setting up their little treat table.  I used a rag curtain that I already had as a backdrop, and hung it from a tree branch.

I wanted all the food to feel like the fairies could have found it in the forest -but really I found it all at the supermarket.  I had a lot of fun perusing the aisles and trying to think like a fairy.  Here’s what I came up with.

On the menu was:

  • lemonade
  • twig cookies
  • mixed nuts
  • maple leaf cookies
  • acorn cookies
  • mixed berries
  • s’more trail mix

Pink lemonade is always a hit, and so pretty in these little bottles, with pretty straws attached.  The nuts looked sweet in little candy cups.

The twig cookies are Pocky Almond Crush Biscuit Sticks, love how they looked like sticks from the forest, and the girls thought they were really yummy.

I couldn’t resist using a few animal toy friends on the tables, like momma and baby moose.

We also had a few mixed berries, the blueberries were from home and the tiny raspberries and blackberries were collected in the woods by my little helpers, Tara and Maddie. (Just make sure to check any wild berries before the kids eat them.)

I remembered, as a kid, my Grandma always having Maple cookies, and thought they’d be the perfect addition to our woodland forest treat table.

Some helpful bears were willing to hold down the napkins, in case of a breeze.

They’re usually made with mini nilla cookies, but I couldn’t find them here in Canada, so I improvised with mini oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and think they came out really well.

I just used a little melted chocolate to attach a hershey kiss to the cookie, and added a chocolate chip to the top.  Easy and so cute.
