Our newly-3-year-old, Keadryn, has a passion for pizza. And my husband, Drew, has a passion for food in general. So naturally, their combined 3rd+30th birthday party theme was PIZZA!
A few highlights of the party:
The Italian Soda Bar- This was a hit beyond what I could’ve imagined. Give people club soda, half & half, flavored syrups and Italian Soda making directions and the result is a happy crowd sipping on self-customized refreshments!
Make Your Own Gourmet Pizza– I mentioned on Sunday that we went through sixty (yep, 60!) flatbreads. We used the flatbreads as a pizza base, offered an assortment of pizza toppings ranging from basic (think pepperoni and shredded mozzarella) to gourmet (all sorts of specialty cheeses, prosciutto, veggies, etc.) and let our guests go to town. Yummy! And easy!
Decor- Banners and bunting and pom poms, oh my!
Favor Boxes Extraordinaire- Our guests took home pizza boxes filled with pizza recipes, tins of italian seasonings, little aprons and wooden spoons. Perhaps my favorite part of these were how much fun Keadryn and I had putting them together beforehand!
