Enjoy some splendor in the grass and host a birthday party picnic! You can make it as rustic or sophisticated as you like...
For an adults only soiree, lay blankets & throw pillows on the grass, and provide a picnic basket filled with treats as the centerpiece for each blanket. Include a variety of finger sandwiches, cheese & crackers, wine, sparkling water and perhaps a fruit tart for dessert. Make sure to include the appropriate utensils, plates and glassware too.
For a more rustic all-ages approach, set up a communal area with supplies like a basket of gingham tablecloths for people to sit on, ice buckets filled with sodas and beer, and provide sack lunches that include a sandwich, chips, fruit and a homemade cookie.
After lunch, start up a little friendly competition with a game of softball, lawn bowling or horseshoes and hand out small prizes to the winners.
