A Cookie Decorating Party with Sweetology

5th Birthday Party at Sweetology in Town and Country Saint Louis, Missouri

Can’t quite believe that I have a 5 year old!  We do friend parties every other year for our kids, and I knew that this year we would be inviting a few of Layla’s friends from school and I did NOT want the mess of having it at my house.  She absolutely LOVES baking and with a December birthday, what better way to celebrate than decorating sugar cookies!

If you’re in the Saint Louis area, be sure to check out Sweetology!  They are located in Town and Country next to Target and HomeGoods.  They have several different party packages to choose from, including a Cookie Decorating package, a Cake Decorating Package or a Cupcake Decorating option.  We chose the Cookie Decorating party for our 5 year old and it included the following:

  • 4 sugar cookies/per guest
  • Decorating materials (i.e. several colors of royal icing, piping bags and tips, every color sprinkle under the sun)
  • Dedicated party space
  • Dedicated party host for 90 min
  • 6” cake for the birthday boy/girl (+cake plates/napkins/utensils) — the cake was super cute too!
  • A Sweetology Tee for each guest

Sweetology in Town and Country, Missouri is a great place to hold a 5th birthday party.

Our group worked pretty quickly and we wrapped up in under 90 min (we also opted to take our gifts home to open).  Most of the kids in attendance were already 5 but a few were still 4.  This was a great age for boys and girls and everyone had such a fun time!
