If you’ve been around for awhile you know that throwing parties is one of my favourite things to do. Growing up, before the days of cell phones, Instagram and Pinterest, my mom used to throw us the MOST EPIC parties. And I’m not just talking birthday parties, Valentine’s Day, Graduation, Easter, Christmas, she even threw each of us a period party…ya you read that right, she did that. So every time I get a chance to throw a party, whether it’s an engagement party, bridal or baby shower, Christmas Eve or hey, even a wedding, going all out is just second nature. It’s how I was raised, I really don’t know anything different.
Ellia’s birthday parties have always been a joy to do. Most of them I couldn’t have been done without my sister though, we always seem to mysteriously have a similar vision for things, it’s weird. Elle wanted a cookie decorating party this year, and she wanted it to be just school friends. Ok, easy enough! I had the lovely Andrea offer to collaborate with some party supplies from her shop Party et Cie and she sent over the most gorgeous goodies! I also reached out to Urban Walls because I LOVED their circular abstract decals and thought they would go perfectly for the party. I think using decals for a party is kind of brilliant, because they are easy to put up and take down if you wish.
Showing the girls how to decorate sugar cookies was seriously very fun and I was beyond happy that they were super into it too. They all did amazing and got to take home their creations. Of course there was also a lot of freeze dance, and other games and each of the girls got a squishy (one of ellia’s obsessions). Im so grateful to have a space to bring all of Elle’s friends together and make her party dreams come true!
Thank you Party et Cie and Urban Walls!!
