cookin' party

My youngest turned 9...she is kinda particular when it comes to....most things. She requested a "cooking party". So she invited her favorite chef (her dad just happens to be one) to help out.

We started off the event with introductions and crafting girls. Each girl customized there chef hat or toque, as the they are more formally known, using buttons and punched circles.

 Then off to the races...Chef Relay Race...
Each girl in turn had to don a chef jacket, clogs and chef hat. run to the prep table. put on rubber gloves. measure out 1 cup of each ingredient. stir the contents of the bowl and taste there work before running back and handing off the chef gear to the next girl.

 The little lady Chefs each made their own pizza and scarfed them down.


Then came cupcake Class. There was practice time with piping bags and a laminated practice sheets... Have you ever seen a 9 year old with a piping bag? So cute lots of giggles and quite a mess. Once practice was over they graduated to cupcakes and colored frosting.

And finally photo booth! A few kitchen items and cute frames and girls will giggle and pose for another 45 minutes or so. Each party goer got an apron (created from a dish towel  and ribbon tutorial to come), hat, a clean practice sheet and a plate of decorated cupcakes. This was a HUGE success say the nine 9 year olds that attended.

  1. This is incredibly clever! I love the picture frames as a prop for fun photos! Congrats, too, on becoming a Ribbonista! You're very talented. I started sewing when I was 8. I had a stroke 11 years ago at 42 and now I just look at my sewing machine and don't have a clue what to do with it. It's like someone just sucked my sewing ability right out of my brain! One of these days I'm going to take some lessons and learn it all again. I've really enjoyed looking at your projects. I'm on the Stampendous Stamps and Dreamweaver Stencils teams and would love to use my sewing machine on projects for them. Someday...
