Cooking Up A Mini Chef's Birthday Party

Don't you feel like this is the time of year that every weekend is booked with a different kid's birthday party?? I thought this would be a good time to share my oldest's party invitation from last year. Last year it was all about pretend cooking! He even dressed as a chef for Halloween-- so it was only appropriate that we "cook up" something chef themed for his party. I made cupcake picks from a chef's hat die I have and he has on a birthday button featuring the same chef's hat. Each child received a real spatula and fabric chef's hat with their name embroidered on it as a party favor. Each favor had a tag with a die cut apron, spatula and spoon on it. The Happy Birthday banner had the same aprons and spatulas on each letter. All of the snacks were served out of my kitchen gadgets, pots and pans. I put ice and yogurt tubes in the mixing bowl of my stand mixer, the cupcakes were on my baking racks, carrot sticks and dip in a muffin tin, party favors in a big pot, etc.
