Today my sweet Ada is four. I could wax on about the profundity of it all and how bittersweet it is to watch my baby grow, but today is all about the party!
This past Friday we hosted Ada’s preschool class for a bakery-themed birthday party. I had seen Courtney’s Bake Shoppe Birthday Party last April and thought it was so adorable. Ada loves to help in the kitchen so this was the perfect party theme for her.
We started the party making aprons. Each child got an apron with their name on it and a baggie of felt shapes. The other moms and I helped the kids glue the shapes onto their aprons to make little winter owls.
I wrapped all the cakes up in small boxes (purchased at Michaels) so the kids could take them home with their aprons as party favors.
