Ella turned 7 on March 26. We had fun planning her birthday party together. She was very involved and had some specific ideas and opinions. Some of those ideas I went with and others I steered into different concepts. :)
Since her actual birthday was a school day we had our birthday morning [pan] cakes topped with whip cream, sprinkles, and a candle. Ella wore her number 7 shirt to school and took cupcakes to her class that she and a friend decorated together. Ella's birthday dinner request consisted of her 2 favorites: 1. Famous Dave's cornbread muffins and 2. coffee. That was easy. She was very surprised when I said yes to the coffee. We ordered a pan of muffins from the restraunt 5 minutes away and made frappaccinos in our blender!

And here's the workshop:
The "favors" for Ella and her friend were mixing bowls and spatulas and measuring cups and spoons from the dollar store. We also purchased 2 corrdinating kitchen towels from the dollar store and made them into aprons.
Did I mention there was sugar everywhere? :
