It’s great when there’s time to plan out and make special party food. But when the craziness of life overlaps with a party or event, the result can be a frenzy of stressed out, night-before baking (trust me, I have been there!). There is a better way–a trip to the grocery store. In fact, the entire menu for this Girly Dinosaur Party is store bought. Between the lineup of fruit for the herbivore station and a trip to Whole Foods’ bakery section for the treat table, this party menu came together with just an hour of errand running.
A chocolate cake (Whole Foods bakery is the best for these because you can get plain cakes without any floral, theme-y decorations), a package of vanilla mini cupcakes, frosted sugar cookies, a package of powdered donuts, several bags of pink candy, and bags and bags of fruit make for a yummy, but oh-so-simple, party menu. One bonus of streamlining the menu–a little extra time for working on some of the dinosaur party decor projects (aka- spray painting things gold and neon pink).
