Birthdays are meant to be field with joy, cupcakes, laughter, and time to make memories. Life gets so hectic and stressed that its is nice to take that day off to fill a day with love, even though you probably still will be stressed, and your boss is a now a child that has yet to grasp a sense of time (or age) and think she's grown...
Welp! This weekend my boss will be a newly six-year-old. Not only did MiniBoo get to be a princess for Halloween, but she will also be one for her birthday. All the while, I have the responsibility of entertaining her and three of her friends for an afternoon. I decided to take the stress off of myself by having them be more active in managing the activities for the day.
MiniBoo's Princess Pizza Party is kind of the best mash-up of things. I don't have to worry about picky eaters because they get to choose their toppings and it keeps them busy. Plus, they get to be creative and make their pizzas into different shapes. The other plus size is that they will keep each other busy. MiniBoo wants more of a playdate rather than party. She doesn't like trying to have everyone play games. They just want to play with MiniBoo's toys, watch movies, and eat pizza. The adults will get to chill, while the tornado of girls play in MiniBoo's room.
Thanks for grandmas (but don't call my mom that), she reminded me that I will need a little more than just pizza to serve at the party. And thanks to Flatout Flatbread, I will! It is great how creative they will get to be with their pizza and desserts (check below for what I mean)! I'm not the best hostess, so I like to have parties were folks can be interactive and choose what to do.
So, here's the plan! Folks never arrive on time, so it give me time to do some last-minute prep. The Buttercup House has princess themed cookie cutters that are going to be used to make the different pizza crust shapes with the Flatout bread. They will get to choose their own spreads and toppings, which make each princess pizza unique.
