Gift Idea: Restaurant Play Kit

The year of the movie theater play kit was also the year for my other niece to receive a restaurant play kit. Oh, what fun memories!

Avery had three birthday parties in three weeks this fall so I had to come up with some fun and easy on the budget gifts quick. The two boys recieved a movie theater kit and the girl got this restaurant kit.

I started off with the same canvas bag and got to use pink this time for the name (she happens to live across the street and have the same name as my big girl). Oh, how I love me some pink!


Included in this kit were some pink napkins tied up with ribbon, personalized restaurant menu, nametags, sales book and apron.


The sales book was bought at an office supply store and the napkins at Target.


I typed the menu on the computer, printed it, and had it laminated at the same office supply store where the sales book was purchased.


I used the nametag holders from my teacher stash and included one for the girl and her little brother.


And this time I actually made the dress up part myself. I had a bunch of fun fabric scraps that I used to create this apron. I do not have a tutorial on how to make this because I was completely winging it. I had no idea what I was doing. It came out looking somewhat like an apron so I was satisfied! I used more iron-on transfer paper to put a monogram on the pocket of the apron because every girl loves a monogram, right?


And then I finished it off with a personalized label.


I had so much fun with these play kits! Of course you could really add a lot to the restaurant kit such as play food, dishes, oven mitts, potholders, store signs, etc. I can't wait to make more!

These gifts are sure to be hits at Christmas and Birthdays! If you make a play kit for a little one in your life, please share it with us on Flickr! We would LOVE to see your fabulous ideas and interpretations!

Happy Thanksgiving! See you next week!

Love this idea. I am all about a themed party gift. I did a zoo themed one for a one year old the other day. Wish I thought to post that. Thanks for sharing.
