The sweetest little girl we know turned THREE and what would be sweeter than a candy themed party with the sweetest sweets and the tastiest treats? We transformed the front lawn into “Mya’s Sweet Shoppe” with a lollipop garden complete with giant 4’ lollipops and a candy buffet that brought back the nostalgia with whirly pops, candy necklaces and even candy buttons! Remember those? We also had an hour of cupcake decorating and no doubt – the kids had an abundance of sugar after decorating and devouring them! Yum! The hit of the party was the puppet show – hands down – by Wonderworld Puppets and puppeteer extraordinaire, Ric Morton! The kids couldn’t take their eyes off of the stage as the performance unfolded. We even had some lucky guests who participated in the cool magic show that followed! Guests took home their very own bears from our Build-A-Bear hour which made for the perfect party favors! The kids thought it was uber cool that they had their very own cub condo to take their bears home in to love! Mya was ecstatic and enjoyed her special day to say the least. I must say, it was probably a bit overwhelming for a 3-year old with the sensory overload!
Well, two months of party planning and we have a very happy little girl who may not even remember the day three months from now or three years from now, but I think it was well worth it for the memory of another great milestone!
Happy Birthday, Mya! We love you!
Love, Mommy & Daddy
Cake creation by the fabulous Jennifer of Maryjane’s Cakes! She makes the meanest red velvet cake! Our bottom tier was red velvet, second was carrot cake and the top tier was lemon all covered with fondant! Mmm…mmm…MMM!!!
Juice was flowin’, music was bumpin’, DJ was spinnin’ and the kids were cuttin’ up the dance floor! Mya and friends made an appearance at the posh Cinespace in Hollywood for a pre-birthday party in celebration for Mya’s 3rd Birthday! Baby Loves Disco is a real dance party at a real club with a real DJ! The club transformed into a kid friendly atmosphere with bubble machines, baskets of scarves and egg-shakers, a chill-out room with tents, toys, books and puzzles, a full spread of healthy snacks from fresh strawberries to organic juice. The fun spilled out from every corner of the club with plenty of activities that kept the lil’ booties movin’! Mya’s little feet skipped, hopped and jumped to the beat and there I was engrossed in the moment and in awe that we’ve come to that very place at that very time to see our little girl display her soul on the dance floor. It’s the special moments and milestones that leaves me in awe and this moment was one of many that did just that. Often, these moments become surreal. Very surreal…when I think about how far she’s come and all of the things along the way that molded and shaped her into the person that she is today. I mean…how does she know that song? Who taught her how to play hopscotch? When did she learn how to draw happy faces? What is it with the robot voice and why in the world does she love cheese so much? I may not know all the answers, but I do know that this little girl makes me happy. Like her little feet on the dance floor, she makes my heart hop, jump and skip a beat!
