A delicious assortment

For her daughter’s sixth birthday, Dawn of Crafted in Grace decided that a regular party simply would not do. She wanted something that would be remembered by her daughter and her friends for years to come, and one that would be a fun project for her as well. Once she pitched the “Little Chef” idea to Amelia, the two became unstoppable: this party would be one for the books.

Once the girls arrived, they each received a custom-made apron to wear, and were directed to a darling personalized place setting. Each setting was equipped with a miniature rolling pin, and some pizza ingredients for them to create a personalized pizza, complete with the toppings of their choice. They had a toppings bar setup in the center of the table, and a plethora of cupcakes, decorated sugar cookies, and ice cream for dessert. Fun and laughter were also in high supply at this party!

To create unique and cheap party decorations, Amelia and Dawn got creative with some simple, everyday items. Using some specialty printed-paper, they handmade the beautiful sea of paper pinwheels. The chandelier was created from disposable wooden utensils, and has a one-of-a-kind effect. Instead of buying decorations, try your hand at creating something simple that can be used to elevate your party’s theme and personal touch.

    What an adorable party! I especially love the invitations and thank you cards. All of the decorations and little touches make the simple idea of a pizza party really special.
