[Dorothy Reaches to pick an apple from the apple tree, the tree grabs the apple and slaps her hand]Wizard of Oz
Apple Tree: What do you think you’re doing?
Dorothy: We’ve been walking a long ways and I was hungry and… did you say something?
Apple Tree: She was hungry! Well, how would you like to have someone come along and pick something off of you?
Dorothy: Oh, dear! I keep forgetting I’m not in Kansas!
Wizard of Oz theme is perfect for so many fun food ideas! You can create rainbow themed food or food to match each character from the story. Or a little of both!
I had so much fun thinking up fun theme food idea to tell the story.
The first was this Witches Broom Popcorn bag! They are an inexpensive and adorable addition to your Wizard of oz party.
The food table was one of my favorite parts of the party. The backdrop are rainbow oversized crepe paper streamers with cotton clouds. The hot air balloon is made from a round paper lantern, tissue paper (to decorate), and a “basket” attached with string. The basket was actually a plastic cup covered in twine. I wanted the table to have a real “over the rainbow feel”. So there were cotton clouds all over the table and bright rainbow colors.
A few fun food ideas that I used on the table were:
Each little touch adds personality to the event and allows the kids to feel like they are transported to that particular magical world for an evening. The candle was homemade by adding red sequins to it. The forks were also coated in red sequins for the ruby slipper sparkle. The water bottles had a blue and white gingham wrapper with ruby slippers on it and red lids.
The best part of the evening were the Ruby slipper cupcakes!!!
I made an easy rainbow cake by cutting a 9 inch round cake in half and setting it on it’s side. Then I made a rainbow with skittles and mini marshmallows for the clouds.
But the ruby slippers were the most fun!
They are completely edible. They are made with cupcakes sprinkled with fine red sugar coating (with a red cupcake liner), thin round cookies for the foot of the shoe, and piroettes for the heel! They turned out so beautiful and best of all, the birthday girl loved them!
This was a fabulous party to create food for! I had so much doing it, and the kids loved all of the labels and themed food. It was a wonderful celebration of our sweet 7 year old.
