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.
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!!
I had Chocolate, Vanilla and Pink Frosting all ready for them to ice their cookies.
Next they each got a tray with 4 toppings. Rainbow Sprinkles, Mini Chocolate Chips, Funfetti (they were on the top of the frosting containers) and crushed Oreos. I also put out M&M’s and Mini Cookies for them to decorate their giant cookie with.
Let the Decorating Begin…
Once they were finished we put their cookie right into their decorated box. Emily’s Finished Cookie
Next the kids played, we had pizza and cupcakes. Of course the kids were able to decorate their cupcakes too!
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!
What a fabulous idea!! I LOVE this!!!
ohh how fun I love the boxes so the cookies didn't get messed up on the way home!! Looks like everyone had a blast :-)
