Ava is 8! I feel like planning her birthday party this year was just a little bit different. She was very specific about her theme (Disney’s Zombies) and every detail she wanted to include. Let’s be honest … Ava really planned most of it herself, but I am glad she still let me help. As we are still coming off of a pandemic, we decided to keep it pretty simple this year. Drop off with just a few friends in our front yard, pizza, and cake. What more do you really need anyways? They all had a blast!

We picked an all pink and green color scheme to fit the theme, and Ava and I created this balloon garland ourselves!

We did a small table set up with all the supplies for the activities (Mad Libs, art pages with markers, and a microphone for a sing-a-long).

We kept the eating table simple as well. Just some pink plates, green napkins, and our signature in a BOX Mini party favors for a special touch …

… Oh, and don’t forget the fun disco lights running down the center! 

What’s inside these fun Mini favors? A few Disney’s Zombies stickers and “Z bands” of course! We tied each one off with a green satin ribbon and a pink pom pom to represent the Zoms vs. Poms party theme. The “Bamm! Oh man, Oh man, Ava’s 8!” tags are reminiscent of our favorite song from the movie because it is so catchy.

Ava really wanted to have a photo booth (with props of course). 

Ava and some of her closest friends … A small sweet group of girls made for such an easy party!

These cuties wanted in on the action too just like the big girls!

Happy 8th birthday Ava! I am just amazed by how resilient you have been this year. It wasn’t easy, but you always stayed positive and made the best of each situation. You are growing to be such an amazing young lady, and I am absolutely so proud to be your mom!
