Henry's 5th birthday is coming up! We decided to throw a chef party at our house. We've started getting invited to parties at expensive venues like amusement parks and jump houses, but we only gave Henry two choices: home or the park.
For appetizers were going to serve:
- Cheese and crackers
- Fruit kabobs (strawberries, bananas, and grapes)
- Chips and homemade guacamole (plus queso from our neighborhood restaurant)
The the main course, the children are going to make their own quesadillas with a choice of rainbow colored vegetables and toppings:
- Minced red bell pepper
- Grated carrots
- Grated beets
For dessert, Henry picked ice-cream, so we're doing make-your-own sundaes with the following toppings:
- Cookie dough bites
- Gummy bears
- M & Ms
- Chocolate sauce
- Homemade whipped cream
We're going to follow the recommendation of only invited a small group of children since Henry is so young (his age + 1). The smaller group is likely to be less over-stimulating and overwhelming.
I don't think we're going to do anything special with games, although Henry does want a pinata. We're going to make one in the shape of an ice-cream cone.
It might also be really cute for Henry to bake something in advance that we then wrap up for favors.
I'm looking forward to it!
