Noah loves the movie Ratatouille, and so we chose that as his theme for his birthday party:
The theme of the party was “Anyone Can Cook!” And with a group of 3 year olds, we proved that statement to be true!
Nana and Papa were in town for the birthday celebration, and so Noah enjoyed helping Nana with the veggie tray among other preparations.

Ready for the party!
As the kids arrived, Noah greeted them at the door and gave them their aprons and hats.
“Welcome to my Birthday party!”
The “little chefs" were dropped off by their parents – the parents returned later for the “second seating” lunch.
(I think Chef Kelly was the only one who wore her hat the entire time!)
We started out by cooking up some Play-doh fun – burgers, ice cream and pizza for everyone!
Chef Sutton and Chef Noah making hamburgers
After everyone had their food prep practice with play doh, we moved to the kitchen to prepare our lunch. The kids made their own pizzas, and we assembled fruit skewers (although more fruit got eaten than skewered!)

(It was so cute to hear all the kids together sing the blessing before eating – I wish I had my video camera out!)
After eating, all the kids got the giggles…
And then it just got sillier…
Chef Kelly was telling them to use their inside voices!
Papa Joe serenaded Noah with “Happy Birthday” when it was time for cupcakes
After going to a number of birthday parties, Noah was thrilled that it was finally his turn to blow out a candle!
Chef Sophia knows how to eat a cupcake!
After the sweet treats, Papa Joe gave violin lessons:
The kids started to get a little crazy when the moms showed up (or maybe it was the sugar rush). Either way, I loved it! I really think all our little chefs had a good time. Thank you to all our guests for helping to make Noah’s third birthday unforgettable! Y’all come back now, ya’ hear?
