Let the other parents know what to expect

It could be a good idea to communicate to the parents of all attending guests that this will be a vegan birthday party and for the to politely respect that if they choose to donate some snacks or when choosing a gift. Making this communication beforehand can relieve some of the anxiety that some non-vegan parents have about our lifestyle and what we will and won’t eat.

Veganize typical party foods

Having a layout of familiar looking foods will make most children forget about the fact that it’s plant-based. Pizza is pizza, chips are chips, and cake is cake.

Pizza is a children’s party staple and fortunately enough, there are a few major pizza chains with vegan-friendly options (such as Domino’s and Pizza Hut) If your local chain doesn’t have vegan cheese, you can simply buy a bag of shredded Daiya and rebake the pizza in the oven until the cheese melts. Better yet, you can have everyone make their own personal sized pizza with cruelty-free ingredients provided by you.

Vegan cake can found in some bakeries depending on your location but the safest bet is to opt for a perfectly personalized homemade cake in order to ensure that there is no cross-contamination with dairy. Try It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken’s Vegan Confetti Cake recipe for a classic birthday cake. You may also use the recipe to make a “pull apart cake” (so you will make the cake shape from a lot of cupcakes) for easy serving and clean-up. Don’t forget to offer almond milk or juice to accompany the cake.

Give eco-friendly party favors

Ditch the endless amounts of plastic used when making goodie bags this time around and instead opt for more environmentally friendly party favors. Using decorated paper bags, you can fill them with packaging-free items and homemade treats for them to take home and share.
