Children's festive table: original menu and proper laying
Children always look forward to the holidays, be it New Year, Birthday or any other significant event. They are waiting for a miracle, fairy tales, adventures and fun. Each parent has the opportunity to be a real magician and give his child an unforgettable day, memories of which will remain forever in his heart. Often such an event does not require a large budget, but a desire to present joy and imagination, which will have to be included for the whole. And what holiday can be without guests and food? A children's festive table, the menu of which is well thought out and presented correctly, will only enhance pleasant impressions.
In order to ensure that the children are satisfied, do not have to buy delicious food and prepare complex dishes, surprise them with truffles or lobsters will not work. Just need to consider that the children's festive table - this is not the same as the adult, and should focus on the "target audience."
What do children like? Most prefer juices, fruits, sweets and sandwiches, rather than side dishes, salads and meat dishes. Kids do not like to sit for a long time at a meal, it is much more pleasant for them to chew something delicious on the run. We will start from this by thinking through the menu and decorating the children's festive table.
Of course, that the food should not only be tasty, but also useful. It is not superfluous to find out from the parents of the invited, whether their son or daughter has any allergies to any products, otherwise the holiday can be spoiled. Also, instead of soda, it is preferable to put natural juices or a home-made compote on a children's festive table. The dishes should not be too fat or heavy, because dancing and playing after them will be hard. Its role in creating a festive mood plays utensils: plastic or paper, with the heroes of your favorite fairy tales, standing on a bright colored tablecloth - what you need! Bonus for mom - these plates can be easily discarded, not washed. Special napkins, tubules for drinks, funny skewers will also come in handy. Children's festive table can be decorated with garlands, balloons or toys. It happens that the guys are embarrassed to impose their own food from salad bowls or dishes, so try to serve it portion by part.
Treat for Glory
Sandwiches are preferably made small, in the form of canapes, they are easier and quicker to eat. From vegetable and fruit slicing, you can lay whole pictures on the dishes or make sculptures by attaching their parts with usual toothpicks or matches without sulfur heads. Pick up the ingredients so that they are of different colors and create a bright composition. Fruit salad of apples, bananas, oranges, kiwi, apricots, filled with yogurt, is useful, tasty, looks very attractive and will decorate a children's festive table. Sandwiches will be even more appetizing if you put a rabbit out of a sausage, and a lion cub from a cheese. Decorate such masterpieces can be pieces of tomato, sweet pepper or cucumber, but the olives children usually do not favor. Salad can be put in halves of vegetables, from which the flesh is removed or in tartlets. Candy and cookies are preferred different, so interesting, and the addictions of the guests after all are not the same, one to taste chocolate, the other - marshmallows.
The organization of a children's holiday and a table, in particular, will require creativity and imagination from the parents, but the shining eyes of the guests and the small owner of the house will be a worthy reward for all the labors.
