We’ve been so lucky with the weather this year, and outdoor venues seem like the right choice for any and everything. When the birds are chirping and trees are dancing, partying it up at the park will make the kiddies appreciate nature more and give up on the ever-popular pastime of spending every weekend at the mall.
Your kid’s party can be the best excuse to soak up some solid winter sun, and we’ve found the perfect al fresco spot for just that.
Located in a local solar park, Inn the Park is anything but boxed up. There’s plenty of space for your kids to play in the sunshine and lots of treats to encourage them to do so.
Let’s start with the food because, let’s face it, that’s always the most exciting part. The kids will start off with two appetiser cups as their starter and a choice of fruit salad or hummus with veggie sticks.
This is followed by healthy sandwiches, where you can choose from a selection of grilled veggie wraps, falafel and tahini wraps and more. We had to grab a bite just reading that…
Ending the meal on a sweet note, dessert is a choice of chocolate fudge brownie or chocolate crackle. In addition to water, the package includes a choice of orange or apple juice. Your kids not fans of choco? You can always customise the menu to their liking. You can also add hot dishes such as sliders and coconut fish fingers with fries. As for the grown-up bites, in true Dubai style, Inn the Park’s menu offers nibbles including Asian sliders, healthy wraps and an assortment of refreshing dips.
No party would be complete without some amazing décor, and Inn the Park’s options are more picnic than luxe. You can go for a blanket or table set-up, priced at Dhs10 per child and Dhs30 per child, respectively. Organisers can decorate with balloons, but any ornaments and entertainment would have to be very subtle.
It’s all fun and frolics from then onwards.
