Whenever you have fifteen plus 11 year olds, more purple than you will ever know what to do with, balloons galore, and a themed birthday party entitled “top chef” you know that this is not your typical 11 year old birthday party. There has to be a master mind behind the entire thing!
That is where Emily Edwards, from Your Hearts Desire, comes in. Emily is an amazing event planner and called me up to take pictures of her exciting birthday party that she created for 11 year old, Shelby. She let me now that there was going to be a lot of purple (which of course excited me) and a theme entitled, “Shelby’s Top Chef Birthday Party”. She had invited Chef Doug from Creative Hand Cuisines to help the girls learn to cook an amazing meal. There were 3 different stations where each of the girls were able to participate and make their own Italian Iced Sodas, Salad Dressing, and Raviolis. (Shoot, I want a party like this for me!!!)
Of course the party was phenomenal and a huge success. When the parents dropped of the girls and saw the amazing decorations their mouths dropped. The girls were totally into it as well!!
Emily totally outdid herself with the party favors, decorations, and decor.
Boxes with each individual girls name on them. In the boxes were purple Aprons, purple spatula’s, purple nail polish, and so much more. The girls were ecstatic when they opened up their boxes.
The birthday girl sported her purple apron and hat with pride!
Chef Doug explained the rundown to all the girls. He split them up into groups and sent them on their way.
First stop was Italian Sodas. The girls got to pick out their own flavors and make their drinks! Each section had information about what they were doing and they were quizzed later in the party so they had to pay attention!
Next they created salad dressing. They each created their own and then took it back to their table for once they were ready to eat.
Then, my favorite. The Ravioli station! It was so fun to watch the girls make Ravioli’s. They had a blast.
The end result was some very yummy looking food and a lot of very happy 11 year old girls!
What an amazing time! Happy Birthday Miss Shelby! I hope it was more than you could hope or expect!!
