After putting off birthday celebrations for my girls I broke down and hosted a mermaid party to commemorate their third and fifth birthdays. Yeah, I know the former event planner turned event rental proprietor who gets hives when it's time to plan a party. It's just overwhelming, especially with a newborn in the mix. It got done thanks to several of my friendor and business partner. Valerie, Petite Konfetti, was there to receiver all of my random Pinterest screenshots and ideas. Lina, Zoe and Pea, not only created the amazing desserts, she and her husband took pity on me and helped with setup! My sister-in-law was on hand to make everything run smoothly while I ran late. She helped me with setup and breakdown! My homegirl, Iris reminded me to take my hair bonnet off, thank goodness I took out my rollers prior to leaving my house. She was also the kids' craft station matron. Aida, Aida Malik Photography, masterfully captured the event. Kedby of Kedby's Kreations created the mermaid fin cakes to perfection. And Abby of Pretty Posh Design created the plush floral arrangements.
I was so overwhelmed I didn't have a chance to style their hair🙍🏾, hence the Afro Chic look.
Bonnie the Clown was excellent for entertaining and face painting.
In part two of this post I'll get into the details.
