In celebration of the first day of school here in Maryland, it seemed fitting to recap the birthday celebration of a special Kindergartener, who just happens to be my daughter. When the birthday girl turns 5, only fun and fabulosity will do! Cassidy’s Fab 5 was filled with special touches, a few of her favorite things, along with her favorite colors, purple and pink.
Who says entertaining at home has to be boring? Not us! To ensure this soiree was not only beautiful, but functional for the birthday girl and her friends, we transformed a space in our home into a fun and fab party paradise. One area of the room housed adorably styled kids tables, complete with pretty place settings, fresh flowers, and personalized coloring sheets. To further enhance the space, a gorgeous greenery wall adorned with paper flowers and themed signage served as the backdrop.
The birthday girl had some special requests for her girls only soiree, which were all cohesively weaved into the fun fab five theme and party activities. Cassidy loves girly fun, and she and her friends enjoyed plenty of it playing with dolls at our tutus and toys station, kids makeup at the glossy and flossy beauty bar, and even enjoyed a mini ballet class where they all got into formation with matching leotards and pearls.
Cassidy has career aspirations of becoming a chef and loves 3 local restaurants - Ledo’s, Sakura and Chic-Fil-A. Thus, I ensured all 3 were on the menu. To keep with the favorites theme, we played restaurant and gave each of the girls custom menus for Cassidy’s Cafe, where they could choose 1 of the 4 specials. I love how the little things like this bring a lot of enjoyment to children.
Balloon art is certainly a trend here to stay, and beautiful balloon garlands of purple, pink and coral were such a vibrant enhancement to the dessert nook and custom photo backdrop. The birthday girl loves snacks and sweet treats, and we had so many beautiful and tasty options for her and her guests to choose from, to include: a gorgeous 2 tiered floral confetti cake, cupcakes, chocolate covered oreos, chocolate covered rice krispie treats, chocolate covered pretzel rods, custom cookies, and fruit snacks, popcorn and cotton candy in personalized packaging.
To thank the girls for celebrating with Cassidy, each guest took away a custom favor box that included a few of Cassidy's favorite things. Overall, this fun and fab soiree brought smiles and laughter to the birthday girl and her guests, and it was a hit! Want to see more? Check out the gallery below.
A very special thanks to the awesome vendors who helped me bring this to life for my daughter!
