The Sound of Music Themed Party

When Carina turned 1, we just had to celebrate by throwing a small Sound of Music themed party because, who doesn’t love the Sound of Music?

Remember the scene where Fraulein Maria wondered what to do with the fact that the Von Trapp children didn’t have play clothes…until she saw the green damask drapes in her bedroom and recalled that they were going to get new drapes for her bedroom windows. What happened then to the old drapes that were still in good condition? They were magically and overnight turned by Maria into 7 play clothes for the kids!

And what do you think happened to the off cuts of the drapes? Well, I turned them into decors for the Sound of Music themed party, of course!

For the food, I wanted it to have a very Sound of Music feel, so I listed the foods that were mentioned in the film, plus made up some.

Do you remember the “Tea! A drink with jam and bread” line in Do-Re-Mi?

Of course, My Favourite Things told us of

“Cream-colored ponies and crisp apple strudels,
Doorbells and sleigh bells,
And schnitzel with noodles ,”

And we just had to have berries because of that scene…

“Friedrich told you, Father. We were berry picking.” 
“I forgot! You were berry picking.”
“Yes, we love berry picking.”
“All afternoon?”
“We picked thousands.”

PARTY VENUE IDEAS

gazebo
Gazebos can be lovely party venues. It doesn’t have to have glass walls, so you don’t risk having an accident with the glass (like Liesl/Charmian Carr) and still enjoy singing ‘Sixteen Going on Seventeen’.

 

picnic venue
A grassy area like this can be a great spot to have a picnic. Don’t forget to bring a guitar!
