It's hard to believe that we have an eight year old at our house!
However, planning the birthday party for Cloe has never been easier!
This year, Cloe came up with a COOKING theme for her party.
She was full of helpful ideas and plans!
We thought it would be fun for all the girls to have an apron to wear while they cooked.
The girls also got to take their aprons home.
My mom came up with this super easy pattern a couple of years ago.
Just squares of fabric, buttons, velcro, and ribbon...maybe a tutorial will come later!
Cloe picked out her cake from some options we found at different websites.
This cake is from Parenting.
It was super easy--I even cut out one step and just baked the cake in an oval casserole dish.
We also made a special CLOE banner!
SO easy and cute! You can find the directions here from My Blessed Life.
Just waiting for our guests to arrive!
We started out with pizza making!
(Thank you, Trader Joes, for having 99 cent dough!)
There were some pretty interesting pizza creations!
While the pizzas baked, Cloe opened her presents.
She got some of the coolest girlie gifts!
Sort of made me wish I could be eight again!
The girls were pretty satisfied eating their own pizzas!
Next, it was cookie decorating time!
I found the adorable idea for Funny Bunnies from Munchkin Munchies.
The girls used my edible markers to draw their own bunny faces.
They were a huge hit!
Next we decorated cupcakes.
The girls could choose to decorate an Easter basket, a marshmallow flower (like on the cake),
or an Easter bunny.
Thankfully, all the girls' cupcakes turned out super cute.
We tucked them in little boxes to take home.
Then it was cake time!
Happy Birthday Sweet Cloe!
We love you so much!
You always bring sunshine to our family!
Not to be left out...
McClain and Carson jumped on board with the Funny Bunnies.
Aren't these hilarious?
A super whiskery bunny!
