Hi friends!! I have to say first that I'm sorry for being MIA for the past month. Things have been quite crazy the last few weeks. With our recent move life has taken a second to get back together. We had planned on moving in our new home by February 1st, however there were a few things in the new home that weren't quite ready so we had to push it back a month. We were able to finally get all moved in right before the March 1st and then we had Miss Juliana's Birthday Party to celebrate. If i knew how hectic things were gonna be I probably would have waited int he part for a few weeks but you know I love a little CRAZY! Hahah! This was such fun birthday milestone! 5 Years old is a huge deal!! I had a blast planning this party and it turned out so AMAZING!! I was super stressed out trying to get all the little details done but It was all worth it in the end.
One thing I wanted to do when planning this party and theme was ask Jules what she wanted of course and then really think about her personality and incorporate both. She went through this phase where when we asked her to tell us what the weather was like outside she would always say, "It's raining ice cream"! (like all the time) My kinda weather for sure. That is really what drew me to the theme and Jules just added the donuts to make it that much sweeter.
I found almost everything I used from decor to party favors from Oriental Trading Company. It was very affordable and can totally be recreated. Jamie my lovely husband created the Donut Wall and it turned out so much better than I anticipated. We had a minor issue with the balloons sticking to it. (I would suggest to use a matte paint NOT a semi gloss)
Lil Betty's Ice Cream was a huge hit and if your looking for an Ice Cream Cart (Ice Cream Sundae Bar) her company is the best and the ice cream is delicious!
A BIG than you to Up Up & Away Face Painting for providing quality face painting for all of our guests (not just the kids). All their Artists are all amazing and do a fantastic job! We have used this company before and I highly recommend them.
I hope you enjoy this post I really enjoyed throwing this party and since my baby girl only turns 5 once, I will hold this one close to my heart!
Let me know your thoughts. I aways love to read your comments.
Happy Almost Friday!!
