Magic and Mayhem says May 11, 2011 at 5:24 AM If you do want to do “goodies” for the guests, plants are a wonderful option. Three of our kids have spring birthdays and we generally give annual flowers or seed packets with a little pot to decorate and things like that. Six packs of flowering annuals are very affordable and I just cut them into singles. Children at our birthday parties have always gotten really excited about taking home their own flowers. We’ve also offered veggie annuals of popular veggies like cherry tomatoes but the flowers have been the biggest hits with boys and girls alike.
