Celine had her third birthday party this weekend at Little Lakewood Salon and Playhouse. All of her classmates came out along with a few additional friends. She had such a good time!
One of the great things about the venue was that they do all of the setup for you and handle table covers, plates/napkins/etc, balloons, and hanging decor. It was so nice to stroll in ten minutes before the party started and see everything already put together. I added a few things I had – unicorn pinatas and headbands, party favors, banner, cake, and balloon runner – and we were ready to go!
Let’s have a close-up on that cake. My mom and Grandma made it and it turned out so amazing!! I bought the horn and ears on Etsy and it finished the whole thing out.
I only took one (terrible) photo of the play area, but it had an indoor tube/gym type thing, dress-up, lots of pretend play, a train table, rockers, etc. It seemed like the kids were pretty excited about their options.
After about an hour, the kids went to the room for snacks and cupcakes!
After snacks, it was time to sing happy birthday! Celine is pretty comfortable being the center of attention. 🙂
Our pretty unicorn princess!
Part of the party included decorating cupcakes, so instead of cutting the cake open, each child got a cupcake, some frosting, and some sprinkles. A few kids (not naming names CELINE) started eating the cupcake before they received the frosting and sprinkles, but there were a few extra so she could start over. The kids had fun decorating the cupcakes!
The kids started gathering up their pinata, balloon, headband, and stuffed unicorn and heading out. The venue owner started cleaning everything up. I looked back in the room and there were two kids left, still decorating their cupcakes…Celine and Louise. Lol.
Usually I feel exhausted after their birthday parties as the adrenaline wears off. This one was so low maintenance that the exhausted feeling didn’t happen. So I guess it was a wildly successful party!
