This Friday finds me ready to get into the birthday preparations. I’ve usually started by now, but other than ordering supplies and mapping it out in my head (and on paper), I haven’t really done anything yet. E’s off to Girl Scout camp next week, and so I’m planning to spend next week on some of the make ahead portions of the little one’s party – starting with the invitations.
There are still quite a few pieces of that will be last minute – like the cookies. Last year I had dozens of tiny rainbow colored flowers and they were a huge hit with the kids and grownups – they are just right bite sized, and so delicious.
For our Farmers’ Market party I found a bunch of small “market” bags – they look like pastel burlap sacks – each a different color. I’m going to fill them with little fruit and veggie bite sized cookies because there’s no reason we can’t take a perfectly healthy sounding party and turn it into a sweetfest.
Eggplant cookie anyone?
