May you touch fireflies and stars, dance with fairies, and talk to the man in the moon. May you grow up with love and gracious hearts and people who care. Welcome to the world, little one. It’s been waiting for you.
My dear sweet, sweet Cocobaby.
Let me tell y’all about this girl. She’s the definition of an “old soul”. The sweetest, cuddliest, most intelligent, funny, thoughtful toddler I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. I love her to pieces.
And she turned three today.
So I’m gonna share with you a few of the fun details of her party. Don’t worry, I’ll keep it short and sweet.
- Hostess with the Mostess: DIY Tutorial: Watercolor Popsicle Stick Table Runner
- Prudent Baby: Confetti Balloons (Sprinkled with Love Party)
- Hostess with the Mostess: Mya’s Rainbow Party
- DIY Bubble Favors: It’s a mystery!
- Things to Make and Do: Bubble Painting
I had to order some custom paper products from Hostess With the Mostess. I’m kind of obsessed with their site and this “About to POP!” baby shower motif was calling to me. The people running their Etsy store were amazing– super responsive and working with my alterations. This isn’t a sponsored post or anything, I just want to give kudos where it’s deserved.
The supply list:
Lots and lots of bubbles. I love how the custom labels really just made everything feel so warm and cozy.
And bubble art.
Forgive my pregnancy brain when I typed “colored paint”. Duh. Whatever.
Cupcake liners that I adore. And a mini little bundt cake pan!
I got her an entire set of mini cake bakeware, and I have a really fun idea for subsequent blog posts about them. I’m giddy just thinking about it. More to come on that.
Mini bundt cake with watercolor frosting, set atop this spinoff of the Watercolor Popsicle Table Runner idea that HWTM shared.
I was kind of flying by the seat of my pants the day before as I debated how to decorate the cupcakes. And then I found this tutorial. How perfect are these watercolor cupcakes?! (And a reference for natural food dyes, thanks Pinterest!)
One more cupcake shot. I admit that a lot of our party revolved around cupcakes.
Cupcakes and other sweet things, that is.
