Steal our tips and tricks to create this special Pocahontas party for your little one. By Noeleen Foster

There’s a certain kind of magic that can be created with teepees, feathers and wind-blown dreamcatchers. Your garden or a park will be the perfect venue for your tot’s party. You just need a little space to pitch your teepees and hang your bunting. With our expert ideas, you can have a magical party that has all the authenticity of a good old North American Indian pow pow.

The invite

Start by sending out a photo invite with a feather attached to it by using a strip of washi tape. Print the invitation details on the back of the photo.

Setting the scene

Make and paint a fake fire using cardboard, and stack a few logs around your flames to create a realistic look.

Tents and teepees can easily be made using blankets and sheets. Get dad to help tie up some broomsticks as the tent poles. Create little comfortable seating spots with old throws, scatter cushions or quilts.

Décor

Feathers are like stars in the sky… you can never have enough – tie them to little braids, headbands and beautiful daisy juice jars. You can even bake these clever feather biscuits.

Serve your food and treats in old rustic tin cups and plates.

Don’t forget the dreamcatchers!

The food

Impress your guests with our homemade lemonade recipe. Pimp your daisy jars with feathers and fill them with loads of ice and a couple of lemon and apple slices.

A beautiful cake to tie the theme together is always a must.

Thank you

Your guests will love a little something sweet to take home.
