Party Refreshments for Nancy Drew and her Clue Crew

Now that it's the beginning of a new year, talk has started around our house about what kind of party Little K will have for her Birthday this year (in March).

That made me realize, that I never finished posting about her Nancy Drew Birthday Party from Last year! Yikes - I guess a little thing like picking up your family and moving them to another state got in the way.

Food Table

So here we are, with the Old Fashioned Luncheon Menu for our Nancy Drew Super Sleuths:

Deviled Eggs and Mini Pigs in the Blanket

Deviled Eggs and Mini Pigs in the Blanket

PB & J

Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches - with the crusts cut off. The paper bands are made from coordinating scrapbook paper and add a little color to the plate.

Old Fashioned Jello Mold

We had to have a Layered Jello Salad. I found a vintage mint green Tupperware mold on e-bay. You can't tell in the photo, but it's actually 4 rainbow colors of jello layered. It was a pretty hot day, and the whipped cream started to melt down the sides and covered the layers.

Cheese and Fruit

Cheese and Fruit Cups

Veggies and Dip

The Drink Station

And a Beverage Station with Pink Lemonade

Tub O Root Beer

Bottles of Root Beer

Water Jugs

And little Jugs of Water embellished with paper bands

Super Sleuth Picnic

After a hard day of Super Sleuthing - the girls enjoyed a relaxing picnic on the lawn.
