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…
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!
