Today we had a Gruffalo party.
My son turned 4 yesterday. The most favourite thing in the world to this 4 year old is the Gruffalo. So when it came to his party it was only fitting we entered the world of the deep dark wood.
Inspired by my boy’s passion and imagination, I embraced all things Gruffalo. He made sure I remained true to the elements of the book. He’s a perfectionist, so there was pressure! But it was all worth it in the end. There’s nothing like seeing his joy. And boy, there was joy!
Now I’m no baker, so I got a lot of help from a talented friend to prepare much of the food. And a local cake artist made the cake… so this isn’t about me, this about how fun it was to create a party that matched a child’s love for a book. I enjoyed it so much.
