Birthday Party Wrap-Up

The birthday party has come and gone.  Whew!  It was a great success.  I really recommend going to a cooking school for a birthday party.  The girls made pizza and cookies and pudding. 

Below is the front of the birthday party invitations I sent out for the party.  This is a much better picture than the ones I posted in my Birthday Party Preparations post. (I have a long way to go with photography skills... I think I need a real camera and a half-a-dozen classes).

The party invitations were paper pieced, cut out with my Silhouette.  The heart paper was scanned from the actual fabric I used to make the girls' real aprons.  I printed out the scanned image and used the paper to make the invitations.  I am not sure if anyone but me noticed the invitations matched the real aprons.  In any event, it made me happy.
Above is a picture of the fabric aprons I made the girls, along with the chef hats.  Below is how the room was set up with a coloring sheet, chef hat and apron at each seat. 

The birthday girl's chef hat got special treatment.  I cut out two paper tiaras on my Silhouette then wrapped them around her chef hat so one shows in front and one shows in back.  The tiaras were cut from a glitter pink cardstock.  Then I decorated the tiara with small stick on jewels.

Let me tell you, the cake that the cooking school provided was y-u-m-m-y!
