Party in a Box and Flower shaped Brownie Cookies

When we plan and prepare for a party it is much easier if we can find all the things we need to decorate and serve from one place.  I am glad that we can find many themed party kits online at BirthdayinaBox.com such as Brave, Tangled that are sure to please any little girl.
I am planning on having a fairy party for my daughter in spring and wanted to get started.  This deluxe kit from BirthdayinaBox has 8 knives, spoons, forks, cake plates, cups, 16 napkins, 12 birthday candles and table cover, which is good for a small gathering of children.  This kit also comes with pink and hot pink streamers that would look beautiful when we decorate among balloons.  Having this kit with everything in it makes me feel like I am already set with the little details, and am looking forward to plan on what to serve for her friends.
I am thinking of including these flower shaped brownie cookies adapted from the smitten kitchen cookbook that would fit this theme.
Here is what you will need to make these brownie roll out cookies we will need... (I halved the recipe)
3 cups flour
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
16 tbsp unsalted butter softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Whisk flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder in a bowl.  Beat the sugar and butter until fluffy in another bowl then add eggs one at a time.  Mix in the vanilla and dry ingredients.  Wrap the dough with a plastic and chill for 1 hour.  Roll out the cookie dough on a floured counter to 1/8" or 1/4" then cut desired shapes, I used the flower shape cookie cutter from the Wilton cake decorating kit.  Place the shapes on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake in a 350F for 8 (for 1/8") to 11 (for 1/4") minutes.  The edges will become firm and the centre will be slightly soft and puffed, transfer to a wire rack and cool.
