A Baking Birthday Party

Pumpkin turned 5!


I almost can't bring myself to believe it...
but 5 she is!

And her newfound muse is the kitchen oven so we decided to have a baking birthday!


I made aprons for all the girls....
using the same pattern from A Spoonful of Sugar
I liked this pleated ruffle on the bottom so much that I added it to Pumpkin's apron too!
A close up of the pleated ruffle--

sew fun!



We made "gingerbread houses"...they decorated them for over an hour!

We also made cookies in a jar to give as gifts or keep
and share a time in the kitchen with someone special...
it was busy but
oh so sweet!literally!

What an amazing party! Love the ruffle you have added to the apron - very sweet. The cookies in a jar were the perfect take home gift:)

What a cute idea! I'm sure all the girls felt super special with their own aprons. Hmmm...maybe for next year's girls craft party...
