Woodland/Enchanted Forest

Friends of the forest have gathered to say, a birthday party is on its way! Our woodland/enchanted forest themed party will begin with children making trail mix to take with them on a fairy hunt around the Estate. They will sprinkle fairy dust under trees to coax the fairies to come out and play. We will then do a nature scavenger hunt before making toadstool cupcakes. We will then sit down to have our forest feast consisting of finger sandwiches, vegetable sticks and dip, ‘forest berries’, trail mix and cupcakes.

Teddy Bear’s Picnic

We are going on a bear hunt! Our Teddy Bear’s Picnic party begins with children making a trail mix to take with them on a bear hunt around the Estate. The bear hunt will take children through the grass area, between the olive groves, and squelching through the mud. Children will then make ‘honey joys’ before sitting down for a picnic with their Teddy Bears. The picnic menu will include teddy shaped sandwiches, ‘ants on a log’ (celery and hummus with sultanas), finger sandwiches, trail mix and honey joys.

Pirate Adventure

Sail the seas with us as we celebrate the birthday of your favourite Captain! The birthday party will begin with a treasure hunt around The Possum Patch playground before children are taken on a farm tour which will include a trip to the orchard to pick some fruit to make ‘sword kebabs’. (Please note that this is dependent on time of year and availability of produce). Children will then return to the indoor space for their feast which will include the fruit kebabs, fish fingers, vegetable sticks with "quick sand dip” (hummus), 'sea' cucumber sandwiches and pirate ship jelly. Party games such as ‘canon throw’ will be played before the party finishes.

Pizza Party

Come and have a slice (or even two)! Children will be creating their own pizza from scratch during this birthday party theme. While waiting for the pizzas to cook, the children will have the option of free time in our play kitchenette area where they can create a sandpit bakery or role play a restaurant area. A playdough making activity will also be set up during this time. Once the pizzas have finished cooking, children will be able to devour their creations as well as taste fresh fruit from our orchard.

Winter Wonderland

Snowflakes, cake and winter wonderland treats – warm up inside as we celebrate someone sweet! Our Winter Wonderland themed party is suitable for all ages. Children will participate in a farm tour (weather depending), before returning back to the indoor space to make ‘cheesy snowman garlic breads’ and hot chocolate (note: in warmer weather, hot chocolate will be replaced with slushies and/or homemade ice-cream). While waiting for their creations to finish cooking, children will engage in various sensory experiences such as shaving foam and tapioca beads as well as play various party games such as turning each other into paper snowmen.

pamper-party

Pamper Party

Manicures and pedicures with sparkle galore, these are the things we love and adore! This party will be hosted mainly indoors. Children will be pampered during this party theme as they make face masks, paint their nails and create bath products to take home using lavender and other produce from our gardens. Children will then learn how to make rice paper rolls for lunch. Sandwiches, fresh fruit and ‘nail file’ wafers will also be provided.

unicorn theme

Unicorn Utopia

A splash of pastel colours, glitter, sparkles and sprinkles awaits as your child dives into a world of magical creatures during our Unicorn themed parties. Children will begin the party outdoors with themed party games including ‘pin the horn on the unicorn’ and making balloon animals, before returning to the events centre to make fairy bread, rice paper rolls and fresh fruit platters.

teddy-with-tea

High Tea/Garden Party

Our high tea/garden party theme will be hosted on pallet tables beneath our olive groves. Children will spend the session playing outdoors - hunting for fairies, exploring the grounds, collecting flowers and making terrariums to take home. They will then return to the pallets to learn how to make rice paper rolls and devour the delicious treats as part of the high tea. Sandwiches, fresh fruit from our orchard and various sweet treats will also be provided.
