Kids Birthday Pizza Party

Part of being a personal chef is throwing parties. I know, I know. It’s a tough job but someone’s gotta do it. I throw dinner parties, holiday parties, “just for fun” parties, engagement parties and my absolute favorite – the Birthday party. If you know me “in real life” I am a birthday party fanatic. Birthdays are the most important days of the year and I celebrate mine for the ENTIRE month of June!!

Just a few weeks ago my favorite 10 year old in the whole entire world turned 10! I’m lucky to have such fabulous clients to be a personal chef for, plus they have the best kids ever! It was a really big deal because she is amazing and I love her! And we threw her a kick ass party!!!! I’m counting down the 10 must have things for a killer birthday party!!

#1 – Always have a fabulous cake!

#2 – Birthday Bubbles are key!

#3 – Make sure everyone knows where the party is!!

#4 – Make it unique – personalized napkins are always a hit!

#5 – There has to be something fun – like a sparkly tattoo artist!!

#6 – Have a beautifully set table with lots of snacks

#7 – Prep as much as you can before! I did a make it yourself pizza party – so everything was ready by the time the kids arrived!

#8 – Keep it interactive and let the kids go wild! Don’t worry about the mess – there’s time to deal with it later!

#9 – Two words: Cotton Candy!!

#10 – last but certainly not least – make sure the Birthday Girl is always happy!!!

And there you have it!! The best 10th Birthday Party to date!

  2. Gaby – awesome job – the make your own pizza party idea is awesome – the kids look like they had a great time! Love the sparkles and the cake!

  3. One of the downside’s to not having girls – no sparkly tattoo artist!!!! This sounds like the perfect recipe for a “kick ass” birthday party and one Miss A. will remember forever!!!

  4. Gaby, that looks like a WONDERFUL party! I’m sure she was totally in love with everything you did … she certainly LOOKED happy! I have three boys ages 8, 6 and almost-3. So I throw a LOT of birthday parties! I can use your ideas as a wonderful checklist. :)

  7. im turning 10 in 2 months thanks for putting this on the internet u r my hero ive been surfing the net for ages until i found this thanks

  8. I have to say Thank you so much, I have been stressing over my fiance’s daughters birthday party, She is turning 10 also so very important birthday, I am trying to make it special, I have 3 boys and its so fun when she is her for the summer “Girl Time” but she only gets to do fun things when she is with us, so I really want her to know we are proud of her,an awesome grades this year in school and this is a big deal, double digits:). She is the sweetest girl ever also, the only wish i have is a checklist on everything so i could just go down it n make sure i do not forget anything. or had a special person to help me make this right, I am disabled, lots pain n surgeries etc but i can do this, our kids are me world. Thank you again you are amazing!

  9. Please dear God tell me this sweet childs name is not Allegra! Allegra as you may well know is a type of allergy medicine and I could only imagine the teasing she would get. There should be a committee to approve baby names as more and more people are just making names up, and changing the spelling or pronunciation of names. It’s sad for the poor children that have to live with parents ridiculous choices. Sorry for tje rant I work in pediatrics and see this crap all too often.
