THE GRUFFALO PARTY IDEAS

Here's some ideas I have found for a terribly good Gruffalo party...


INVITATIONS


COME FOR TEA IT'S LIAM'S BIRTHDAY YOU KNOW
COME FOR TEA WITH LIAM AND THE GRUFFALO!

THEY'LL BE ROASTED FOX AND SCRAMBLED SNAKE
OWL ICE CREAM AND GRUFFALO CRUMBLE
FOR GOODNESS SAKE!

COME FOR TEA IN THE DEEP DARK WOOD
BUT YOU MUST REMEMBER TO BE TERRIBLY GOOD!






COSTUMES


Tutorial for owl mask
Tutorial for mouse ears




SETTING THE SCENE

 for the back drop use Woods Wallpaper

The deep dark woods




DECORATIONS






BUNTING

acorns and leaves on vines


there is a free template for this cute acorn bunting from Amay Atlas
 I found it fiddly to cut out, as cut all one.
(I have very little patience!)

I found it easier to cut separate pieces and string them together.
