Today we have an adorable story themed party from one of my kiddos favorite books,
"If You Give A Moose A Muffin" By Laura Jaffe Numeroff. Here is what Kelsey had to say about the party she threw for her son's fourth birthday.......
"I chose to do a brunch (duh, muffins) for food. It was so fun to put together the menu. Almost everything I made was mini or a small serving, so everyone had a little bit of everything. I made copies of the entire book and mounted parts on foam board. I tried to re-create some of the more detailed parts of the book as decoration. In the book, Moose gets cold so he asks to borrow a sweater....then he notices one of the buttons is loose. So, I ordered red, cabled sweater fabric to act as a thick, cozy tablecloth. It matched perfectly!
I made mini chocolate chip pancake muffins I had been saving this recipe from Bakerella for awhile and Micah's party was the perfect excuse to make them. I served them with maple dipping syrup. Delish and super easy.
I also made Donut Muffins. These are dense just like donuts and are topped with cinnamon and sugar. Perfect for dipping into coffee, which we had plenty of Starbucks on hand. Please note, that I am so crazy with the details that these cupcake liners matched a napkin Moose uses in the book. I'm sure I'm the only person who noticed! :)
Moose loves blackberry jam, so naturally, I'm sure he would love a blackberry cupcake. They were almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
Overall, I think this was probably my favorite party. I loved doing brunch-type food and it was really fun doing a theme based on such a cute book!"
