In her book, Anni shows us how to create fun, memorable parties for our kids from items in our own homes or from our own backyards. Has your child ever wanted an art party? How 'bout a spa-day for your little girl or a costume party for boys or girls? These are just a few of the fun ideas coming from this book, and Anni helps to create everything you need from the very basics. She shows us how to make sweet handmade invitations and décor and guides us through the activities and recipes. Everything is created from household goods sitting around your home or from thrift stores.
Library Journal
Daulter (The Organic Family Cookbook) presents 12 children's parties, three for each season of the year, organized from time line to execution. From an egg-dying garden party to a community cooking party, all the events use natural, recycled, and reimagined materials, e.g., dyes made from fruits and vegetables, aprons from old sweaters, and canning jars as drinking glasses and centerpieces. Party foods include Roasted Veggie Soup with hearty Mac-n-Cheese and Ginger Spiced Acorn Cookies. Activities include picking berries and making jam, a Natural Spa Party, and a Knights and Dragon Quest Party. The photography depicts idyllic fun for all the children. Although the young girls attending the spa day look sublime sunning themselves while wearing banana and avocado face masks with cucumber slices on their eyes, it is doubtful that this would be much fun for children for more than a minute or two. The Gratitude Birthday Party sounds like a parent's idea rather than a dream party for a child. VERDICT This beautifully illustrated book provides ideas for low-cost invitations and decorations and sustainable party foods, but both the activities and the food are too rigid and judicious to be much fun for children. Recommended only where there is demand for earth-friendly children's parties.—Ann Weber, Bellarmine Coll. Preparatory Lib., San Jose, CA

    I loved this book! It brought back so many childhood memories of the things my mom did with us. The book is arranged seasonally, with three themed parties for each season. Each party has instructions for making invitations, doing crafts, and lovely recipes with photos for the food to serve at each event. I'm going to use this as inspiration for creating my own events in the future. My kids would love to go to anyone of these parties.
