”KIWI loves Naturally Fun Parties for Kids: What fresh, fun ideas for celebrating. Kids and the planet will be delighted!” –Sarah Smith, Editor-in-Chief –KIWI Magazine

Naturally Fun Parties for Kids is a refreshing take on celebrations for families. Anni Daulter’s approach is simple yet beautiful. I love the way she shows us how to make children’s fetes fun and healthy. This book is great to read, gorgeous to look at, and full of easy-to-use ideas for sustainable celebrations that every family can get behind. –Alanna Stang, Editor-in-Chief, Whole Living.


In Naturally Fun Parties for kids, Anni and Heather take us into the world of children’s parties, and do so with the dedication to simplicity, reverence for the natural world, wholesome food, and beauty that we have come to expect from their work.

As soon as I picked up the book, I fell in love with the beautiful photos. My 6 year old son and I sat down together and thumbed through the pages, diving right in to the exquisite photos and commenting on what party elements we want to try. Just looking at the pictures had us dreaming up plans of all the parties we could have all year round.

One of my very favorite aspects of Anni and Heather’s book is the overarching concept of gathering children together for celebrations throughout the year — not just for birthday parties. While I love having parties to celebrate my children, this book emphasizes celebrations that take the focus off of one child. I can’t wait to get kids together just to celebrate, making each child an equal part of the festivities.

Throughout the book Anni and Heather have countless ideas for how to incorporate simple repurposed items or low cost purchases from thrift stores. There are amazing ideas for everything from invitations to decorations to games involving objects you can find around your home or in nature and save up for a special party.

I deeply appreciate the strong move against the mass-produced and poorly made items found at super stores provided by Naturally Fun Parties for kids. I also think it is fantastic that the items are simple and beautiful and that the act of preparing for the parties can be an engaging and memorable experience of its own.

If you are looking for birthday party ideas, any of the suggested party themes could be turned into a birthday party. However, the theme of the one birthday party in this book is simply amazing — “Gratitude Birthday Party”. What better way to celebrate the birthday of a child than to celebrate all there is to be grateful for? That is a world I want to live in with my family.

Naturally Fun Parties for kids is certain to become a well-used, dogged-eared, and food-stained book in my library. While I would love to preserve the incredible beauty on all the pages, I know that this book will be used often and loved. Frankly, that will just make it more beautiful over the years, infusing memories of wonderful times with friends and family into the pages.



These days buying books is a rare luxury for me, so when I saw on another blog that
Anni Daulter was offering her new book to bloggers
in return for mentioning her book on your blog,
I immediately reached out. I have had my eye on one of her other books;
The Organic Family cookbook, for some time, and felt certain that I would like her new book;
Naturally Fun Parties for kids

A few days ago I finally received the book,
by way of a friend in Miami, and I was not disappointed.
As for the first impression I just adore the pictures and the general set up of the book;
little fairies fluttering about in flowing dresses, big smiles and shiny eyes. And the book being dived into four main chapters, each focusing on a separate season.
Everything in this book has the feeling of the natural world.
The invitations are handmade and unique.
Most of the settings require nothing more than your backyard, a park or your own living room.
Decorations are simple and mainly taken from the natural world and complemented with things most of us will already have at home already.
The crafts and projects are simple and fun, and it is the attention to details that give each celebration a full and well rounded feeling.
The recipes look so yummy and healthy and offers something for everyone.The beauty of this book though, is that for those who prefer to have a complete party plan from beginning to end, it is beautifully offered here.
