As a party planner, I have been anxiously waiting for this day … The one where my daughter expresses interest in her upcoming birthday and selecting a theme! Don’t get me wrong, it’s been really fun the last few years choosing the themes for her (as seen in our previous posts, First Fiesta Birthday Party and A “Two”tti Fruitti Birthday Party), but there’s something about seeing their eyes light up when you create something based on what they love. At three years old, Joie knows all of the names of the animals that live in the sea (ironically she’s allergic to fish), and loves to play “being a mermaid”. I think she picked the absolute perfect party, and creating this for her was magical for me too! Check it out …

In our house, we like to celebrate from the very start to the very end of each birthday. Joie woke up on the day of her 3rd birthday, and we immediately covered her in pink balloons. HBD Big Girl!

A little decoration goes a long way …

… and so does the way you present your party favors! At Joie’s preschool, each kid on their big day gets to bring in a snack for all their friends and a little something to take home. I couldn’t help myself and created these iridescent shell tags to finish off each tiny Mini BOX. Only the best for my girl!

What was inside? An adorable sequined slap bracelet and mermaid tattoos too! For snack, we provided individual bags of Goldfish crackers because who doesn’t love those!?

I set our table up while Joie was at school for a little party (just us)! “Let’s be mermaids” is such a fun theme! For dinner, Joie requested french toast, lots of syrup, eggs, and fruit. I wasn’t gonna complain about that!

In our family, we can’t have a birthday without special treats created by Ashlee of cream + sugar! Aren’t these cupcakes perfection?

This girl is the absolute light of my life! Joie is the sweetest, silliest, most independent three year old around, and I am just lucky to be her mama! Love you to the moon and back Jo! Happy Birthday!
