Daisy theme party
Sweet daisy theme birthday for kids
Oopsy Daisy! It's your little girl's birthday and it's time to plan her party. A sunny
daisy theme party is perfect for the littlest flower pixie or daisy girl scout, yet
sophisticated enough for a wedding, baby shower, or even sweet sixteen party. It's
also a look you can repeat for Easter or Mother's Day! And if you are crafty, there is
all the more reason to have a daisy party as the simple motif is easy to apply to
invitations, favors, decorations and more. After all, this is a party for the inner flower
child in you, too. So have fun with a sweet daisy party.
Dazed and confused on where to start? Here's how to have a crazy daisy birthday
party for kids that the adults will enjoy just as much:
- Are you fond of fondant? Then you'd be blooming crazy not to make Wilton's
easy Daisy cupcake bouquet, left. This incredible edible centerpiece is made
pretty with daisies of colorful fondant strips that are looped and topped with
fondant balls. You'll find lots of use for the cupcake stand, which props this
- Lazy daisy heads. If you can cut, paste and glue, then you can craft your own
daisy party hair clips. Once you have a template, you can make lots of daisies in
felt or paper and attach them to plain hair clips to enhance your party theme.
Party goers will appreciate this fun takeaway. Try headbands and pony tail
bands too. Martha Stewart makes it even easier with the daisy accessory kit,
right. The kit includes felt pieces and embellishments to make six accessories (a
necklace, a brooch pin, two hair pins, a barrette, and a ring).
- Best buds forever! Your little Black-eyed Susan and her best buds will love daisy
lollipops. Just poke the stick of a sucker into the center of a paper daisy. These
tasty treats look terrific set in little favor pails. And there are more ways to
have fun with faux daisies. The fabric covered pens, left, stand 13" long, are
favors that make a festive bouquet to display. Look to the dollar stores for
large fantasy fabric flowers, too.
How does your daisy garden grow? Whether you choose faux or fresh flowers, your
daisy party decorations are a blooming expression of your creativity. Here are some
well grounded ideas to nurture and inspire you:
- Deck the tables with daisy confetti. Snip the stems off real daisies and scatter
the flowers about the table like confetti: it a natural crowd pleaser. A sweet
and edible alternative is to sprinkle daisy sugars, right, intended for cakes. The
kids will go crazy for these dainty delights.
- Heartfelt daisy decorations. There are endless uses to daisies you cut from
yellow and white felt. Stitch felt flowers to white baskets, glue them to
barrettes and goody bags, scatter them on the buffet or cake table. Create
napkin rings, or accents for straws and place settings.
- Decor de plates. Create your own paper flower plates starting with a yellow
plate for the center, use white construction paper to form individual daisies.
This will look terrific on a bright and happy yellow table cloth. Or choose a
simple yellow plates and create a place mat of white petals. Or lay butcher
paper as a tablecloth and draw flower petals around the plates. Stock crayons
in terra cotta pots and allow the kids to color in your creations.
Daisy party food ideas
Flowery fanfare for the food can take shape when you use your imagination. Here's
how to have fun with your food:
- Flour power: Make rum balls, dust them in colorful yellow jimmies and group
them together into daisy clusters. You can do the same for any cake or cookie
dough to turn them into daisies. Have fun transforming virtually any home
made confection into a daisy.
- Now you're on a roll! Bake bread into daisy by clustering rolls into a daisy shape
that guests can break apart with the meal.
- A dollop of daisy. Doll up the dip with cucumber slices arranged artfully into a
daisy. Arrange the slices so they fan outward around the dip bowl, then use a
celery stick for the daisy stem, and two spinach leaves to complete the look.
- Lay out a budding creation. Here's something appetizing: set out individual daisy
chip and dip appetizer plates using Pringles chips in a daisy shape around the
dip. Gain a daisy effect by overlapping the chips slightly.
- Pan to the right for the ideal daisy pan by Wilton. Bake an easy cake, then use
the pan to bake bread or use it as a serving dish for snacks.
Here are more ways to create fancy, flowery party food:
- Crazy daisy ice cream cones: Complement the birthday cake with a daisy ice
cream cone dessert! Scoop her favorite ice cream into a sugar cone, then dip in
yellow jimmies or non pareils, left. The finishing touch is to garnish a sugar cone
with a paper flower rim you cut to fit the cone. It helps keep drips contained
and adds that extra daisy party touch.

blueberries into a daisy flower to garnish them and here's how: with a pastry
brush, lightly coat berries in beaten egg whites, then roll or sprinkle them with
sugar to coat.

your own daisy cards. Print the template on pretty yellow paper, write your

Daisy party games
- A pinata is an essential party game, and the pinata, left. Fill it with daisy
erasers, and more.
- Duck, duck daisy! Buy one daisy rubber ducky, right, and several other rubber
ducks (one for each child at the party) and play two games:
- For the first game you need just the daisy duck. Have the birthday girl
start the fun by holding the daisy rubbery ducky and walking around the
kids sitting in a circle. She will tap heads and say "duck," until she hands
one child the daisy duck and say "Daisy." Now the chasing ensues as the
birthday girl must run around the circle twice until she returns to the other
- For the next game, have kids pass ducks around in a circle to music and
when the music stops the child holding the daisy ducky is awarded a
special prize and steps out of the game. Make every child a winner!
Daisy party favors
- Finding party supplies for your daisy party won't be too difficult if you start your
search early. Wilton's Dancing Daisy Flower Treat bags are the perfect size for
gathering the pinata goodies. Knock yourself out with the daisy pinata, left. Fill it
with daisy erasers, and more fun party favors you find on Amazon.
