science party prep

the-celebration-shoppe-science-collection_beaker-cookies

I’ve been so busy over the past few weeks launching new collections (candy corn, harvest and spooked pumpkin) that I’ve not had time to post about all the fun things we have planned for my oldest son’s sixth birthday this weekend, a science birthday party! For those who stop in often, you’ve likely read me ramble on about how much he loves science (and how my youngest loves dinosaurs). Well being me, we just had to create something unique to celebrate his big day. Plus, I love the idea of an educational birthday party!

So if you’ve not seen it yet, check out the science collection storyboard that I posted a few weeks ago and then take a look at these darling bubbling beaker cookies,

periodic table cookies (I love the Helium one!),

and yep, our cupcake printable designs in these beautiful rounds. Sue (and team) of Sweet Tooth Cottage hand decorated each of these lovely cookies and I couldn’t be more pleased with how perfect they are. And these are just pics inside the bakers box; wait until you see them in our cello toppers! And when we start shipping them they will be packaged and sealed in 4″ cello bags which are a perfect fit for our custom cello toppers… did I just write that…  hmmm… well I’ve been dying to tell you and so now I’ve let the secret out. A much more formal announcement with all the details will be coming closer to the end of the month, but until then, just imagine a yummy soft butter cookie that will melt in your mouth and match your table perfectly!

Happy Friday everyone and much, much more to come next week on the party including table decor, crafts, science experiments, and oh, yes, more goodies!
