Birthday party invite that I created!

So, I couldn't resist sharing.  Take a look at the birthday party invite that I created for Snuggle Bug's 4th birthday party.  Obviously I modified it to remove our personal contact info.

Not too shabby, eh?  I love Photoshop!

I decided to have a cooking theme for Snuggle Bug's birthday party, since he loves to cook and bake!  We keep his parties rather small, because he's more comfortable in small groups, so I think we have about 6, maybe 7 kids that will probably be coming.   Oh, and Baby Bug and her family are attending too (even though Baby Bug is too young to cook).  We'll have Baby Bug in our house again for the first time in 4 months, hooray!

I've ordered kids aprons and chef's hats online and I'm going to have fabric paints available for the kids to personalize their aprons and hats.

After their aprons and hats are ready, I'm going to let the kids roll out pizza dough and create their own personalized pizza's.  

Sounds fun, right? :)  I hope so!

Tomorrow I'll try to find time to post pictures of one of my recent Christmas tutu orders.  They turned out really cute, I think.

You did a great job! I hope the party is lots of fun! How awesome that SB loves to cook. So does my son, and he tells me all the time that he wants to be a chef when he grows up and that hes going to cook for loving that idea!
Cant wait to hear all about the party.
I hope your having a great weekend...are you ready for the holiday?

That's a novel idea - hadn't heard of a cooking theme before. My kids like to lend a hand in the kitchen, too. I'll have to keep it in mind. You can only get so creative with superheros and princesses so many times.
