Cooking Birthday Parties!

"Best Birthday Party Ever!" -Tina Griesser, West Chester

" I just had my 7 year old son's birthday party at HomeCooked and it was awesome! The kids were engaged throughout the party and the staff made it effortless for me. HomeCooked is such a refreshing break from the bounce-house birthday parties! Highly recommend!" -Kathy Miller, West Chester

Super fun and all the mess happens in our facility-- HomeCooked cooking birthday parties are the perfect way to celebrate! Boys or girls ages 6-13 are welcome.

What happens: 15 minutes prior to party time the birthday girl/boy selects a Pandora station for music during the party. As guests arrive they each put on an apron to wear during the party. Once everyone has arrived, the HomeCooked party host goes over the agenda for the next 1.5-2 hours and then leads a tour of our facility. Guests wash his/her hands and prepare to each make lunch: a calzone or quesadilla with customizable fillings (vegetarian available if desired) for each person.

While lunch is baking (approximately 25 mins) the guests complete a cupcake activity: decorating for a particular theme (i.e. cupcakes that look like cheeseburgers) or for ages 9+ "Battle Cupcake," a "Cupcake Wars(R)" like theme. We provide homemade vanilla buttercream icing and cupcakes (choose your flavor-- vanilla, chocolate, vanilla with sprinkles), assorted candies, colored icing for decorating, and assorted sprinkles. Guests each make 4 cupcakes. For ages 6-8 we offer "Designer" cupcake designs-- "Cheeseburger" cupcakes, "Teddy on the Beach" or "Popcorn cupcakes" or you can do "create your own." Pics available after party date confirmed.

Lunch is served along with bottled water and pink lemonade. Birthday time- guests sing and guests enjoy their dessert. We take pictures of the group with their creations for our Facebook page (and provide digitally to parents if desired) and guests relax until parents return. Party can last 1.5-2 hours, depending on the preference of the hosting family.

Book your party today, limited dates available and space fills up quickly.

Food Allergies We treat food allergies very seriously and discourage guests with a gluten, egg or dairy allergy from participating due to the presence of those ingredients in party materials. If a party guest will be attending and has a gluten or dairy allergy we can work with you to make accommodations (which may involve an additional charge), please consult a HomeCooked associate at least 1 week prior to the party to arrange. Other allergies can be evaluated on a case by case basis. Ingredients containing shellfish, peanuts or tree nuts are not used, though certain ingredients are used in our facility for other (non-party) uses. If you have any allergy concerns please discuss with management.

We limit parties to 16 participants and ask that at least 1 parent/guardian (but no more than 3) remain at HomeCooked during the party.

Cost: Cupcake Wars/Battle Cupcake Party (ages 9+): $349 for up to 10 participants and $25/person for guests 11-16. Designer cupcakes: $329 for up to 10 participants, $25/person for any additional participants. 10% gratuity added for party leaders.

To reserve, we ask for a $100 non-refundable deposit. We need a final guest count 1 week prior to the party to allow us to prep all ingredients. You will be responsible for paying for the number of attendees communicated 1 week in advance unless there are additional guests beyond that number at the party. The balance can be taken care on party day. We accept cash, check, V/MC, Discover, and Amex.

Birthday parties can be scheduled for Weekdays (usually at 4 or 4:30pm but can be earlier), Fridays beginning at 3:30pm and Saturdays beginning at 10:30am. Call for availability 610.647.1002!
