BIRTHDAY PARTY FOOD IDEAS
Since our Baby Einstein party guests ranged from toddlers to grandparents, we made sure to have drinks that were suitable for all ages.
red, blue and yellow buckets, we iced down boxed juice drinks for the
little ones. We also had blue, red and orange Gatorade and Juicy Juice
available with bright colored, no-spill sippy cups for the parents to
pour the drinks into.
For an all-around fun drink, we served Baby Van Gogh Clear Punch
in a red punch bowl.
We froze three new Baby Einstein teethers and just before time to
serve the punch, let them float in the bowl. The “ice teething rings”
were really cute and kept the punch cold too.
See our Baby Einstein Punch recipe section for more great 1st birthday ideas like Baby Neptune and Baby Mozart Punch.
You can spruce them up with ice rings, floating Baby Einstein toys or even alphabet, musical notes or animal shaped ice molds.
Little ones are big helpers, especially when it comes to putting rubber ducks in blue punch.
We also served Baby Einstein Smart Smoothies
that went over so well, we should have doubled the recipe.
Einstein tumblers are a great idea to give to each of your younger
guests to drink out of at the party and to take home afterwards.
Our Baby Einstein Birthday party was for a first birthday and
the guest list included friends and family ranging from toddlers to
grandparents so we wanted to serve snacks that accommodated everyone.
Chances are, whether your party is a first or not, it will include a
variety of ages as well so we have put together some fun birthday party
food ideas for all. We had so many 1st birthday ideas we did two of some
Birthday Party Food Ideas
BABY EINSTEIN SNACKS
Fruit is an all around smart snack choice and fruit trays are an attractive way to serve them
up using bright primary colored plates and platters. We made a fruit
tray for easy and convenient serving but we wanted to add a Baby
Einstein twist to the fruit as well so we made fruit caterpillars and
put them on a separate dish.
Veggie trays are fun too. I like to serve them with dip. Children love to dip. We made these beary good sandwiches
and the guests loved them. They are easy to make and are great to have especially if your party is at or around mealtime.
Jell-O Jigglers are fun and they don’t melt.
There are lots of Baby Einstein characters to choose from, a duck,
bear, frog or all of them. Make our Jell-O Jiggler recipe and use a
cookie cutter to shape into the character or characters of your choice.
You can also make letters and numbers using cookie cutters like these.
We made jiggler caterpillars as well. Just make our Jell-O Jiggler recipe in flavors such as cherry, lemon, lime and orange.
Cut circles using the top of a small glass and one larger circle for
each to be the head. Place on a bright solid colored platter and watch
the fun the youngsters have while eating them. Wilton Animal Pals Cookie Cutter Set can be used to make animal shapes.
Animal shaped gummy candies are great to serve and animal crackers too.
Birthday Party Food Ideas
You will need a skewer for each caterpillar. I used one for each child and two for each adult.
a melon ball head for each caterpillar. An ice cream scoop is what I
use since it makes a larger ball. For the melon, you can use seedless
watermelon, cantaloupe, or honeydew. I alternated, using some of each.
the skewer into the melon ball. This will be the head. String the
skewer through seedless green, red and purple grapes.Make caterpillar
antennas by poking two toothpicks into each melon ball and top each with
a raisin. Make eyes and a smile with a black icing pen.
These are great fun for your guests. Make sure younger children are supervised with the skewers, of course.
You can use coffee stir sticks instead of skewers if you prefer.

Baby Einstein Cheese Ball Tray
My niece just did this adorable Baby Einstein cheese tray for her
daughter's first birthday party. It's much easier than it looks. Make
five cheese balls using one or more of our cheese ball recipes. Leave
one plain, roll one in parsley, one in yellow shredded cheese, one in
shredded and chopped purple cabbage and one in nuts. Assemble the balls
to look like a caterpillar with the plain ball as the head. Make eyes
using a brown and black icing gel pen and a red one for the smile. Make
antennas from baby carrots. Scatter assorted crackers around on the
platter and you have an irresistible Baby Einstein cheese ball creation.
