Emily’s Cookie Decorating 4th Birthday Party

  I had so much fun planning Emily’s birthday party this year.  After going to a friends “Baking” birthday party at a cooking place, I thought I could totally do this at my own house for a fraction of the cost.  When I asked if she wanted to do a baking party at our house she was so excited.

The day before the party Emily, Juliette, Aunt Christina and I worked together to bake giant circle sugar cookies.  I used a large round cookie cutter to make them and after they were baked they were about 5 inches in diameter.IMG_7408

On the day of the party I had small cake boxes that would fit the cookie for the kids to decorate.  I found really cute stickers at A.C. Moore that were perfect for this.  They had all different sweets on them and words like “Sweet Treat” and “Delicious”  They also used markers.  I couldn’t believe how long all of the kids spent decorating their boxes.  I could have stopped the party their and they would have been perfectly happy.  Although I am sure they are really glad that I didn’t since next up was decorating their cookies!!

Let the Decorating Begin…

Once they were finished we put their cookie right into their decorated box. IMG_7418Emily’s Finished Cookie

Next the kids played, we had pizza and cupcakes.IMG_7425 Of course the kids were able to decorate their cupcakes too!IMG_7426 IMG_7427

For a favor I found these really cute giant coloring books, Princess and Fairy ones for the girls and Dinosaurs for the Boys with a homemade star shaped crayon.   And of course their giant cookies!

Emily said it was the best Birthday ever which made it all worth it!
